I did a search for E.T. and saw that the only active discussion about the film was a B.O. thread. I just saw the new TV commercials for the E.T. re-release and was surprisingly irritated by it. As the voice-over guy mentions "new effects" there's a scene where Elliot is opening a can of soda next to an obviously CGI E.T. (I believe this scene is indeed from the original film.) And don't get me started on the whole "terrorist" dub issue. It's nauseating. I know I'm not the only one who dislikes these revisions. What I'd like to have is a full listing of changes that have been done to E.T. since its original 1982 release.
