Our friends at Universal Studios Home Entertainment have sponsored a contest for members of the Home Theater Forum, and will be giving away one free copy of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on 4K UHD to one lucky member. In order to enter, simply post in this thread. Open only to U.S. residents. (Sorry, Canada!) You may still post in this thread if you are not a U.S. resident, but only U.S. residents qualify to win the prize. Winner will be selected randomly.
We were originally going to have people post the catch-phrase that was made famous by E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. This film was certainly not the first one to have a memorable line, and the Home Theater Forum is full of members who know and love movies.
Let's make this interesting. Below is a selection of famous lines from famous films. Only one of the lines below is the correct one uttered by E.T.
"E.T. phone Home Theater Forum."
"I'll be back!"
"I'd buy that for a dollar."
"Strange things are afoot at the Circle K!"
"You played it for her. You can play it for me."
"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."
"I've got a bad feeling about this."
For this contest, simply post a famous line from a film in this thread. The line may have been said by E.T., or it may be a line from another film that E.T. should have said. If you think E.T. turned to Elliot and said "Yippee-kay-yay, m___f___", then put that. If you think E.T. said "I think we are going to need some more FBI guys", then put that.
If you prefer, post your favorite memory about seeing E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. The winner will be selected randomly and you are not disqualified if your movie dialogue is not really from E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Let's have fun, and good luck!
