Close Encounters of the Third Kind ★★★

And now, you're gonna be real disappointed and sorry if you don't have one of these early-warning systems, such as a bird, a gas mask. Why, even my dog has a gas mask.

Another Spielberg film off my watchlist. Gives me a lot of the same feelings E.T. did, maybe A.I. as well. I just wasn't engaged in the latter half.

It's quite advanced technically for its time, probably would've won the Visual Effects Oscar if it wasn't the same year some movie called Star Wars came out. Also, it must've been quite influential. Was Devils Tower really not that well-known back in '77?
