    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

    A classic that for whatever reason I had never seen before. Instead of picking this film for me to watch from the Spielberg canon, my parents showed me Temple of Doom, and look how I turned out. Really strong all around, it plays the sentimentality and melodrama way up, but does so well enough that it's enjoyable and sometimes bittersweet rather than annoying. The cinematography, particularly the lighting, just emanates nostalgia, and I can see how much modern 80's throwback shows and films try to echo it.

    That one cousin, the one who apparently just smokes weed and raises prize-winning pigs in her free time, is the coolest.
