Admin note: This thread is largely hype for the release before it's release date, and then ordering/shipping/"it's arrived!"  talk afterward; Please relocate to the following thread to discuss the act

DISC 1            77:57                           THE FILM SCORE PRESENTATION               1          Main Title 1:14             2          Far From Home / E.T. Alone 6:57

I heard Spielberg shot an alternate ending with E.T.'s ship getting lost in the Bermuda Triangle (which would lead to a sequel). Since he didn't use it, it might explain the missing triangle as he wou

That cover looks exactly like the movie. The E.T. cover shows Elliot with his bike on a cliff in Porter Ranch watching a spaceship, which never happens. I don't dislike it, but it looks like the cover of the junior novelization or something.

 

True, but I think the cover captures the sprit and wonder of E.T. nicely. I've never thought album or movie poster artwork need be that literal, in fact I think there's a trend towards making these things too literal that's a little uninteresting.

 

When I saw that cover I immediately thought it fit the film and music perfectly, so on that level it works (at least for me).

E.T. is about wealthy white people in a wealthy white southern California neighborhood.

 

You couldn't be more wrong.

It's about alienation, loneliness, and the disintegration of the family unit, from the inside.

Are they wealthy or just well off?

 

Neither. Dad's in Mexico, with Sally, and mom has three mouths to feed (not to mention regretting buying Ragu!).

What do you mean it looks fake?  It's a painting...

 

...and its still flopped.

Michael Pangrazio, if I'm not mistaken...but it could be Chris Evans...

Actually, it could be John Alvin.

There are so many unreleased scores. So many you can check up on and add to your collection, but they keep you hangin' on.

 

It took me so long to figure out what song he was singing!  I couldn't get it from googling (this was many years ago) and of course later I figured out it's because he messes up the lyrics!

 

For those who don't know, it's "Accidents Will Happen" by Elvis Costello.  Great song.

I was surprised when I was watching CE3K the other night while waiting for the panel discussion to start to hear More Than A Feeling by Boston in the film!  I had completely forgotten that was in there

 

 

Oddly, the end credits of the film didn't include it in its music section

Three? That older one, forgotten his name (Penis Breath or something?) looked old enough to work a casual job and feed himself.

 

He's called Michael, and he's still in school. There's that wonderful (handheld?) shot of him on the school bus, looking rather worried.

Is that heard, as the lights go out, all over town?

Looks like they combined two images together, yea.  I think the result is ace! :up:

 

I asked MM about the cover and he said its absolutely correct and there will be more information about it after the release is out.

He looked like a weirdo when the 20th Anniversary version came out. Nowadays, he looks like a normal enough dude.

According to Wikipedia, he's a mail man. Makes sense. He never struck me as an actor. He was really very good in E.T., but I figure it was just fortuitous Spielberg casting. It didn't matter that he wasn't an actor, he was perfect for the role. Sort of like when James Cameron cast what's-his-name as John Connor, only he kept acting in things for no good reason.

He was just learning to drive, he was definitely 14 maybe 15

 

Yeah, but until ET arrived, he'd never driven forward.

The nose candy finished-off his career.

What is all the bitching about? Or is a few questions being interpreted as as bitching? Doesn't everyone - at least - recignize that the cover looks great?

 

Nobody really disagrees with the cover, right? People are just curious about its origin. Right?

 

People are not allowed to not like the cover?

It's the JWFan dance. The cover is fine, but there still needs to be a five page debate about it first or the ritual will never be finalised. People always need to get that stuff out of their systems with these things. It's a catharsis.
