A boy forms an unlikely bond with an ugly puppet alien. Really it’s a miracle that this movie isn’t just cheesy and ridiculous — but it reaches beyond its premise to capture the familiar drama of childhood.  Terrific acting (how did they keep a straight face?), epic music, and clever cinematography.  Also that hospital scene still scares the hell out of me! (Apparently they used real doctors spouting real medical jargon.) Required viewing.

“Cheesy” is an overused word to describe older movies that use animatronics instead of CGI.

That observation is kind of irrelevant to this blog post, but I did enjoy your comic!

Thanks. 🙂

The more I think about it the more I’m feeling like you’ve perfectly described E.T. in the least number of words possible. Hilarious.
