    Ok, I was reading a magazine called Empire over the weekend and I came across an article saying that there is going to be a 20th Anniversary edition thing of E.T. According to Greater Union, the release date for this is the 28th of this month. [link=http://www.greaterunion.com.au/movies/4349.html]Here[/link] is the info Greater Union has on it, and [link=http://www.et20.com/]here [/link] is the official site.

    Anyone interested?

    Let's see, what have I got planned for the 28th? *out comes Nat's diary* Hmm, Thurs - nothing. Oh hang on, I forgot, no friends, which means I have no life, which means I in if we're having a get-together and all going to go and see it.

    And BTW, I will actually TURN UP if this goes ahead.

    I'm a little skeptical about special editions ever since the Starwars special editions (which I didn't like as much as the originals) but what the heck. I'd like to be there. Have to wait and see what I'm doing though.

    I saw the advert for the re-release of E.T on FOXTEL tonight and there are a few new shots of E.T. doen in CG which look very good. After the Star Wars Special Editions I'm looking forward to the E.T. one as well.

    I don't know about special editions any more..... I mean Greedo shooting first would have had to have been the biggest mistake Lucas ever made, not including Jar-Jar....

    The scream when Luke fell was worse than that I reckon.

    ET has some PC changes itself. They digitally removed guns in agent's hands and replaced them with walkie talkies.

    There was another change along the same lines but I can't remember it.

    A couple of changes I heard were the redubbing of the line, "You look like a terrorist" and also digitally replacing all the agents guns near the end of the film with Walkie Talkies.

    I think they only need to change about 1000 more films, then the WTC will magically reappear where they once stood, all terrorists will cease to exist if little children will no longer believe in them and John Lennon and George Harrison will climb from their graves if you play "Abbey Road" backwards.

    Anyone else over all this PC "Special Edition" crap?
    I shudder at the thought of what they'll do to Indiana Jones...

    EDIT: Wedge beat me to the thingo about the walkie talkies...

    I did enjoy the Star Wars Special Edition overall with all the new CGI scenes and stuff but there were a few things that I just hate including Greedo shooting first and Luke screaming while falling down that shaft. I hope ET Special Edition is not bad and I think they should leave Indiana Jones alone.

    So is that a yes for a meet, or a no for a meet? I myself haven't actually seen the original yet (don't hurt me), so I didn't know there was anything in it that would be an issue because of the WTC... How amusing... :)

    Channel 10 news had the walkie talkie seen on it tonight. And it doesn't look too bad. And if Spielberg says that he was always bothered about the shotguns in that scene, then I can't see anything wrong with him changing his movie for it. Same with Lucas.

    I've seen it, a LONG time ago, so therefore can't remember it.

    So yeah, is there a meet for this movie or not?

    I just hope it doesn't end up being like the starwars ones where Lucas seems to want to pretend that the films were always that way and the scenes from the original never existed in that form.

    Ok, I think a meet for this would be cool, then we can all go somewhere afterwards and pick apart the added stuff over coffee :)

    So, show of hands?

    I'll be up for that

    The last time I saw E.T., I was far less geeky, and found it incredibly boring... I need a new look at it...
