Lilo & Stitch
He's coming to our galaxy.
A lonely Hawaiian girl named Lilo is being raised by her older sister, Nani, after their parents die -- under the watch of social worker Cobra Bubbles. When Lilo adopts a funny-looking dog and names him "Stitch," she doesn't realize her new best friend is a wacky alien created by mad scientist Dr. Jumba.
"i liked you better as a sister than a mom".
υπάρχει τόσος πόνος μεσα σε αυτή την ταινία που κάνει τα 'ενήλικα δράματα' να κλαίνε με το πόσο κατώτερα των περιστάσεων είναι. στη lilo αρέσει να φτιάχνει χαλασμένα παιχνίδια γιατί βλέπει τον εαυτό της ως ένα. η αδερφή της προσπαθεί για το καλύτερο και τα κάνει όλα χειρότερα κι οι δυο τους κλαίνε πνίγοντας τις φωνές τους στα μαξιλάρια τους. προσπαθεί να βρει δουλειά και δε μπορεί, προσπαθεί να βρει σημεία επαφής μαζί της αλλά δεν τα καταφέρνει. η lilo κλειδώνεται στο σπίτι, κλείνει τα μάτια, και τραγουδάει elvis για να αποδράσει. περιγράφει τη νύχτα που έχασε τους γονείς της ως "έβρεχε. πήραν το αυτοκίνητο." αγαπάει αυτό το αλλόκοτο τέρας…
This movie is so irresistibly bursting with charm and cuteness it would take an even darker, more misanthropic soul than myself to watch it without cracking a smile. I loved the animation style, kind of blocky and awkward at first, but it really grew on me, and it's nice to see a Disney animated movie take a fresh approach. Also, a feel-good story of a broken family sticking together at the core of the movie really pulls on the heartstrings, and then there's Elvis. You can't beat the King. Especially when the most adorable Disney duo of all time is doing 'Devil in Disguise'. What's not to like?
If this film had come out five years before it did it could be considered a Disney classic with the likes of Aladdin and Little Mermaid. It is a flawless film that goes from proper belly laughs to crushing emotional depths within minutes.
Its tender and well thought out narrative bring a fantastic emotional depth to what should be a very silly story and if you haven't seen this be prepared to cry the whole way through. Even the filler song scenes are fantastic lending to the great animation on Stitch and the lovely voice work.
It deals with a different culture without being garish, there's a lovely explanation on tumblr about the significance of the Aloha-Oe scene…
June Challenge Film #26
This wasn't my first viewing of Lilo & Stitch, but it has been a while, so even though it was a rewatch it managed to take me by surprise. What a delightful, fun, refreshing film, I laughed out loud multiple times and my heart ached for them when the family was in danger of being broken apart.
The only time the film suffered was due to the action sequences near the end. It isn't that they were bad or poorly done, but Lilo & Stitch is at its best when the story is grounded by the characters, their love for each other and the importance of family.
Got up early to do what? Fuck all. Trying to change a sleeping pattern is a bitch.
Luckily to my surprise 'Sky Disney' aired a classic this morning 'Lilo and Stitch'
I haven't seen this movie in about 6 years, and was still as amazing as it was back in the day. I cant believe I saw this in the cinema nearly 12 years ago! Good times
Might I mention the soundtrack is awesome. I love Elvis, his music makes me feel so damn happy.
What a fucking great movie to wake up to.
I forgot how good this movie is. It's very emotional and really creative.
LOVEEEEEE THIS MOVIE!
I cried. Pretty hard, actually (for me, anyway). This movie isn't Disney's most original or most classic--the sci-fi is a little campy--but the story of family will rip your heart out pretty good.
Typical beachwear immodesty is the only content to speak of.
Deze animatiefilm van Disney is een beetje een vreemde eend in de bijt, maar dat kan ik juist wel waarderen. Er zitten wat grappen en scènes in die erg volwassen zijn, maar helaas staat daar tegenover dat het verhaal zelf af en toe wat zwak is.
Het tekenwerk is grotendeels schitterend, maar wat me stoorde was het overmatig gebruik van de airbrush om diverse kleurovergangen weer te geven.
I remembered watching this movie when I was younger. I decided to go back and rewatch it 12 years later to address how well the movie has stood the test of time.
This movie was legitimately still good. Given my taste for comedy has changed but I still found myself chuckling at certain moments.
Not a classic by any means, but it's fun and certainly one of Disney's more original films.
Dude yes. This movie is so impressive. Earlier today I was watching a lot of Nostalgia Critic reviews on children's movies, so it was really refreshing to see Lilo & Stitch again since I was little. The character development is strong and I detected no holes in the plot. Pretty believable and emotional story if you get into it. The thing is though that while I was watching this I was also trying to do a bunch of other crap so I ended up skipping out on the ending. im just gonna guess that went well too :)
...lilos voice was really annoying though
