    "ET is a famous Spielberg film from 1982, part of the true sci-fi era. The film is unique for having more of a family emphasis rather than on standard sci-fi elements."

    "Babe is a good movie for kid, but not the best by any means. I think I would go with Despicable Me or Toy Story. Babe has some sad parts in it and not good for smaller kids. "
