Ride in the Sky


E.T., are you up there?

Remember E.T.?

Before boarding the spaceship, E.T. hugged Elliot. Elliot was in tears.

He said to Elliot, “Come.” Elliot said to E.T.,”Stay.”

He looked at Elliot gently and said, “I’ll be right here.”

pointing  his glowing finger to Elliot’s forehead.

He then picked up the pot of chrysanthemum from the ground, boarded the spaceship slowly.

It took off, leaving a rainbow in the sky.


WPC: Quest


Released on June 11, 1982 by Universal Pictures, E.T. was an immediate blockbuster, surpassing Star Wars to become the highest-grossing film of all time—a record it held for eleven years until Jurassic Park, another Spielberg-directed film, surpassed it in 1993.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, critics acclaimed it as a timeless story of friendship, and it ranks as the greatest science fiction film ever made in a Rotten Tomatoes survey.

In 1994, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

    • Thank you for your compliment, Jet! I haven’t seen the movie studio, but have watched the movie numerous times. The innocence, genuine friendship… are well filmed.


  2. E.T. was a big part of my childhood. I think it mightve been one of the few films that made me cry.. Lion King being the first one.. lol I know thats sappy, but true friendship is beautiful and rare.


  3. I consider myself an avid science fiction buff, however, I must confess I’ve never watched ET, and I can’t find a reason why I’ve never seen it. Looks as though I’ll search Netflix for it, and catch up on some very important research.


Thank you for visiting! Love to hear from you...
