    The story itself holds up fairly well though, twenty years later, does come off as thinner than I recalled. [2002 re-release]

    E.T. is a dog movie. Genre-wise, I mean. It's about a boy meeting a dog, naming it, taming it, learning from it, and growing up. Of course, the genre is superficially disguised as science fiction, as was the fashion at the time. [2002 re-release]
