E.T. the Extra Terrestrial was a monster movie release in the early 1980's ... certainly, it vaulted Steven Spielberg to new heights. It even spawned a video game for the Atari 2600, one that is commonly referred to as one of the worst video games ever made (although, I loved it for some reason).
It was such a big happening that my mom took me to see the movie (usually, I went with my cousin, but for some reason, the movie wasn't playing at the local mall). I remember loving this movie, and loving Reese's Pieces because ET loved the candy (by the way, smart move M&M's, that was supposed to be your plug).
Years later, the movie was released on VHS to much fan-fare. I remember buying it so that my younger brother could experience the movie, but for some reason, it didn't really hold up for me. Sure, it's still a great movie, but it wasn't quite what I remembered it being.
Ah, the memories!
