Everybody loves E.T. The alien. The kid. The bike. What’s not to love? Even though it seems like a simple enough concept, I don’t think that Hollywood could produce a movie like E.T. today. There’s too much focus testing, generalization, and reliance on stereotypes. You know who agrees with me? The guys and gals from Above Average Productions. If E.T. were pitched to film studio executives today, they’d call him a turd, and demand he get shot. Just typing that is making me kind of sad right now.
- I don’t think E.T. can heal zombie bites
- At least the Red Dawn remake still has Wolverines
- I’m not even sure if I would pirate the movie they’re describing
