    believe it or not, I still haven’t watched ET. Back when I was a kid, the biggest hits in my country were THE GOONIES, BACK TO FUTURE, INDIANA JONES, MAD MAX … and I just never saw ET.

    @Dezzy: Add E.T. to your list of to-see films – it’s a great one.

    @Scott: I think we need to see that pic…to authenticate the comment! 🙂

    @Amy: I think I was influenced by Anomalous Material’s iconic images post…great idea and so many wonderful images to go through.

    @Ruth: I’m trying to find some good ones. I have a few ready to go already.

    Definitely iconic. I would also add the scene from Rocky where Sylvester Stallone runs up the steps and does the raise your hands victory dance(?).
