This morning, as usual, I went onto the Pixabay website to have a look at the new images on their Editors Pick spot. The very first one was this of ET. What memories this image brought back to me. I can remember when the movie first came out. My girls and I were all enthralled with this movie. We couldn't get enough of it My girls would pile up their dolls and stuffed animals in hopes that a creature such as ET would appear there amongst them. Oh course it never happened. But as you know hope springs eternal. Now, many years later my girls play that movie for their own children who all have been swept up in the magic of ET. Do you remember this movie? The innocence and heart-felt love seemed to shine in every frame of it. I love movies like this. Image from Pixabay : pixabay.com/en/et-extraterrestrial-creature-figure-2006631/

This is one of my favorites movies of all time. The first time I seen it was at the cinema when I took my then 5 year old niece to see it. I have watched it many times since then and even bought a copy of it so I could watch it over and over again. I played it for my kids and now my grand daughter watches it. Such a great movie!

It's one of those movies that never grows old. I cannot believe how popular it seems to still be.

@AbbyGreenhill I still do. Not many movies cause me to cry, this is one of them and Old Yeller is another.

I also though he was so ugly he was cute. Oddly enough, none of my girls were frightened of him. I was afraid my youngest would be.

@sharon6345 it's a comment my Aunt Bea used to make many, many years ago about a neighbors little Pekinese. Oddly enough I have that breed of dog now.

I remember it fondly and have never thought there could NOT be an alien among us as cute as ET was . . . in the closet amongst the stuffed toys or walking the mall aisles

@enlightenedpsych2 she was something when she was a kid. She could turn those big beautiful eyes towards the camera and make you cry.

I loved the movie and still do . . . and now my kids love it too. What's interesting is they filmed parts of this near us, so to see some familiar areas in the film make us smile. And we're still in the area.

@HazySue We recently passed by the street where ET and the kids took off in flight with their bikes (towards the end of the movie). They thought it was cool.

One of my favorite movies and not too long ago it was offered on Netflix so I watched it again. I couldn't believe I cried just like I did the first time I saw it.

Yes, the most heart-warming movie to date for me. During the movie, my mom said, "If anything happens to ET, I will never watch any movie again for the rest of my life!"

I like that scene and the one with the stuffed animals. Drew Barrymore was adorable in that movie.
