E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial


E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

An extra-terrestrial is accidentally left behind on Earth and is befriended by a young boy and his brother and sister. As Elliot attempts to help his extra-terrestrial companion contact his home planet so that he might be rescued, the children must elude scientists and government agents determined to apprehend the alien for their own purposes...which results in an adventure greater than any of them could have imagined.

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

E.T. dazzles with a lovely, beautifully restored and, yes, filmic 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer supervised and approved by Spielberg himself; one that I can't imagine will generate many, if any, serious complaints. For those who've long railed against Universal's treatment of its catalog titles, take this moment to breathe a hard-fought sigh of relief. E.T. doesn't exhibit any signs of problematic filtering, unnecessary tweaks, noise reduction or, really, any other technique that might undermine its textures' integrity, reduce its grain to a soupy mess, or subvert Spielberg's intentions or Allen Daviau's photography in any way. Simply put, E.T. has never looked better, never been more faithful to its original presentation, or exhibited more life and vitality than it does here. Colors are warm and pleasant, with wonderfully saturated skintones, bright primaries and satisfying contrast. (Black levels are often a touch muted, but very little appears to be out of sorts.) Detail is excellent as well, even if soft shots are fairly common and special effects sequences come with a slew of inherent anomalies (the most distracting of which involves general, image-wide disruptions most noticeable in the night sky). The key word there, though is "inherent," as none of it appears to trace back to anything other than the source. Otherwise, edges are clean and refined (with only the slightest hint of intermittent ringing to be found), fine textures are nicely resolved, a variety of shots are far more revealing than I anticipated, delineation is commendable, and there isn't any significant artifacting, banding or aliasing to report. Perfect? Not quite. As close to perfect as could feasibly be achieved? I suspect so. Fans will be most ecstatic, Universal skeptics will be most surprised, and everyone in between will be most impressed.

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

E.T. phones home with quite an unexpected surprise: a full and boisterous DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track that propels the film into the future without distancing its original sound design too far from the past. The rear speakers aren't aggressive per se but they are most engaging, immersing the listener in whatever dense underbrush, foggy forests, cramped closets, busy classrooms or mobile med-labs await. Directionality is reserved but precise (particularly in early scenes, when E.T. is avoiding human contact), pans are smooth and there isn't much in the way of air hiss or a noise floor in any of the scenes. It's still a thirty-year-old film with thirty-year-old sound design (difficult as it is to tell at times), but just as much attention and care has been invested in the eight-channel remix as the 1080p video presentation. John Williams' score is the greatest beneficiary to the lossless 7.1 upgrade, of course, and his sweeping themes and soaring orchestral melodies flow freely from every channel, creating a more robust and evocative experience than many will be prepared for. Low-end output is strong as well, lending weight and presence to spacecraft and shady government agents as needed, and dynamics don't disappoint. Dialogue and alien chatter, meanwhile, is clear, intelligible and carefully centered, and only a handful of lines are hollow, muffled or tinny. So could E.T. sound any better? Honestly, I don't see how.
