More information about Final Jeopardy:
You can find Roger Ebert’s full review of the 1982 Spielberg classic here. Note that Ebert, in his review, shortens the film’s title to just E.T.; in case that happens to rankle the small subset of viewers who want to insist on full titles always.
According to Ebert, it’s “a movie of surprises”, and still, over 30 years later, it’s still Spielberg’s highest-grossing film as a director (per Box Office Mojo).
