E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial ★★½

I know, who am I to not like one of the most beloved classics ever, but for some reason it always fails to connect with me. The whole thing moves so extremely so and so little happens, then the audience gets punished with 20 or more minutes of E.T. slowly dying, while Elliot screams and cries his eyes out. If the whole movie would've been like the fun escape that follows (minus the extremely corny ending), I would maybe like it more.
