3. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

head, interaction,

Steven Spielberg once again stakes his claim on summer, this time with the heart-touching tale of an abandoned alien who just wants to phone home.

E.T.'s huge, expressive eyes and glowing fingertip make him almost as irresistible as 7-year-old Drew Barrymore in her first major role.2

Not to mention Henry Thomas as the 10-year-old earthling who bonds with E.T.

but has to let him go in the end.

Ouch.
