Hummm... Let's see, the jesus story retold with an alien as the main character... Didn't care for the original, didn't like Spielberg's version (today I guess it would be called a re-imaging), didn't bother with the re-release, won't get the DVD, any version.
"I can unequivocally say that my most enjoyable experience and the best result came out of the E.T. experience. It's the closest I've ever been to completely satisfied with a picture without any desire to go back in and change it." -American Premiere Magazine, July 1982, Interview by Susan Royal
yes, Spielberg himself talking, 1982 .............
so, $70 ( it will be discounted however in advance ) is not that expensive for 2 cuts, a cd etc BUT forcing fans to pay that for just the right to get the original cut is scandalous.
an original version which was a success and which many people loved and cried for should not become an exclusive "only for the riches" version...
it's not like Eisner-Crichton vs McTiernan here ! (EATERS OF THE DEAD/ 13TH WARRIOR)
I was going to buy the original version on DVD, but not now. I've lived without a copy of E.T. this long (what did it take, like 5-6 yeard for the VHS release to come out?), I can live without it for quite a bit longer.
