E.T.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial/Facebook

It was thirty years ago today that millions flocked to the movie theater to see the latest, greatest film from Steven Spielberg, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. It quickly became a blockbuster, surpassing Star Wars to become the highest-grossing film of all time, a record it held for ten years. Critics acclaimed it as a timeless story of friendship, and it ranks as the greatest science fiction film ever made in a Rotten Tomatoes survey. Was it the best movie from the 1980′s? 

I know, asking you to pick a favorite movie from the 80′s could be like me asking you to pick a favorite kid, it’s hard. Most people can tell you that they have one though. Actually, if I put together my top ten list there are only two or three of my favorites on the list of highest grossing movies from the era…

  1. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), $435 million
  2. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983), $309 million
