This film deserves better. I enjoyed the thrill of the scares but I also loved the jokes and gags that went with it. The plot was intriguing and overall the movie was very entertaining. Fox was perfect to lead and did more than just charm us with his looks, he actually ACTED. I'm certain critics who panned this movie are just people who prefer overrated movies like Titanic. I bet it's jealousy of the brilliant special effects and acting that brought it to life.
The 2007 version of the most sucessful horror franchise will blow you away from beginning to end. It is a prequel of the very first Halloween movie. The movie starts off with the myers in a disturbing way that young micheal myers used to live. (no wonder hes the way he is). It comes on just like the oringinal one did. He escapes and looks for his baby sister Laurie Stroude. He soon tracks her down along with her very naughty friends. She baby sits and then he stats his knife-weilding ways. Laurie tries to escape
I'm kind of shocked that E.T. has only two paws for a community rating. I guess some of the film snobs out there tend to #!@%*# on this movie and that's fine. I have a soul, however. Just watched it again for the first time in years and it held up incredibly. I cried, I'm not going to lie. The relationship between E.T. and Elliott is wonderful, Drew Barrymore is cute and hilarious, and just the look of the film is magical. I'm not the biggest Spielberg fan in the world and even I can love this one.
Should've been a big hit

I love how this movie lures you in with a goofy Ghostbusters vibe and then slowly, but surely transforms into a hardcore supernatural thriller. Fox makes a tremendous lead and carries the movie on his back. Not perfect, but a cool, cool movie, nonetheless.
