That was absolutely the best film that I've watched and it's exactly like when it was release 40 years ago. I enjoyed it.

Performances, Visual Effects, Sound, Cinematography, Score and Directing all still hold up well. See it on the Big Screen while you can.

By far, the best alien film (in terms of "encountering" aliens) & best film done by Steven Spielberg. I have never seen the film before but seeing it for the first time on the big screen, it is truly a marvel. Soundtrack is fantastic as well Funny moments sprinkled throughout the film as well.
