You're a little late on those birthday wishes.

My guess is you guys got him a little late.

 I am watching a Doc that was on TV last night about the movie that mentions it's 30th, that's what prompted it.

I always thought the film was massively over-rated....... but now I realise that was my opinion on last full viewing which must be about 15 years ago.  Time to revisit?

 6 month delay after US release.  This was back in the day where films came out 6 months later than the US in London, then another 6 weeks to 3 months before they hit the provinces and our local cinema.

I remember this time well.  No Internet, very little piracy, journalists didn't to spoilers.  The anticipation before big releases like this and ROTJ was unbelievable.

I saw E.T. again after they re-released it with the digital upgrade. Not only was I bored, I thought the new CG expressions on E.T. was pathetically bad. Also, I kept asking why the kids were peddling their bikes while they flew.

Is "DIY show" another British euphemism... possibly for "public masturbation?"

Nope, that stuff is on Channel 900+ on Sky.

This is a TV show where they get a family who have suffered something terrible and make them a house. Basically they find people who, with 5 kids, the Dad was 60% of the way through massively rebuilding their family home and extending it etc.

Then Dad dropped down dead of, say, a brain tumour. Then the Mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer or something. Leaving the house as a building site with tarps on the roof for a year or so.

So they go in with a designer, and architect and a team of tradesman and they do the whole damn thing.

It's designed to totally tug in the damn heart strings and the fucking show gets me every time.

Bastards!

Mike Holmes is sort of the rock star/avenger of renovation/building contractors up here.  More than a few tearful families have appeared on his episodes.

ET is overrated, no doubt. 

Close Encounters is my personal favourite.  The mothership landing scene is classic.

ET is short for Elongated Testicle. I thought that was made clear in the movie.

You know, because he's the kind of dumbass who'd try to eat tea.

By which I mean that he's British.

Are these edible components served stone-cold?

 Yes, scones and cakes are usually served cold.
