[religion] Religious Symbolism in E.T. … a look at the similarities between E.T. and Jesus … ‘Occasionally incongruous pieces of religious symbolism are sprinkled throughout the film. The children’s mother is called Mary, a fact emphasised by her children calling her by her first name throughout the movie. Elliot promises to believe in E.T. his whole life-implying, curiously, that the event would later become a matter of faith. The iconography is also Biblical – a rainbow in the sky, E.T.’s glowing heart, and the famous image of the boy’s and alien’s fingers touching-suspiciously reminiscent of Michaelangelo’s Creation of Adam.’

Was E.T. Jesus?
