four quick things:
1). Mila Kunis is in this.
2). the only reason i know that bananas have potassium in them is because of this movie.
3). Dean Cundey directed this? this is his only directorial credit? what?
4). this movie offers an incredible scene of a teenage girl berating a boy about the importance of consent after he takes advantage of her that honestly feels like a moment in a movie that would come out today and it’s insane and amazing that it’s actually in this 22-year-old direct to video threequel.
Forgot that this movie has only like four real scenes of dialogue spread across its 115 minute runtime. An absolutely stunning example of restraint being a script’s strength. It trusts us to feel just as Elliott feels what E.T. feels. Such an impressive leap of faith. All hail Melissa Mathison.
