Pick of the Week
Director Steven Spielberg's beloved, out-of-this-world adventure takes off on Blu-ray for the first time ever. The landmark film celebrates its 30th anniversary with an all-new, digitally remastered picture that delivers six times the resolution of DVD and 7.1 surround sound. The 1982 family classic, still heralded as one of the biggest box office blockbusters of all time, tells the tender tale of the unlikely friendship forged between a lonely, imaginative boy, Elliot, and the strange alien creature who finds himself a long way from home.
