This 2 disc special edition set is a masterpiece of presentation, it's beautifully laid out and even comes with a very nice 8 page booklet. The extras disc is packed with extras, in addition the picture and sound quality is of a high standard. It would seem that this DVD set cannot fail? Unfortunately, certain scenes in the film have been edited, and this is a shame for an otherwise very nice DVD. The fantastic scene where Elliot and ET, whilst riding a bike have to face an armed road block has been changed, which in my opinion is a shame because it was perfect as it was. I fully understand that the film has been revamped, but prehaps it could have been handled just a little bit better. For that reason I'll give 4 out of 5.
