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.
Few Disney films delve so deep into the flawed humanity of their characters, but leave it to a film involving fucking aliens to fix that problem immediately and with a tremendous amount of ease. Lilo and Stitch, directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders (IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW), is a glorious mixture of 50s sci-fi trappings laden within a gentle study of family dysfunction.
It's kinda rare that something this perfect came out of Disney in the early 2000s, but it happened, and it should be recognized more often. Fantastic action set-pieces, an economical narrative, fascinating characters, brilliant one-liners, heartbreaking moments; It has it all and It's over in 85 minutes. Grab some popcorn and some tissues and enjoy.
"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…
I remember watching Lilo & Stitch at the theater when I was a little kid, and even though I didn't like it that much back then, the memory of that day is still pretty clear to me. Rewatching this with my sister, I realized she's about the same age as I was at that time; will she remember this day like I did when I watched it? I dunno, but it left me with the same feeling the movie evokes so well: a longing to what has gone away, and hope to what may come. It's something Disney doesn't do often anymore, and I can only cherish it.
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…
u know how a film makes you really happy but also crushes your soul into a fine dust by the time the credits roll.
"Humana", "honesta", "sincera" y "con unos diseños alienígenas de la hostia" no son términos que suela plantearme a menudo cuando escribo acerca de largometrajes animados infantiles, pero teniendo en cuenta que esto es lo más parecido a una película "de autor" que Walt Disney Animation Studios ha tenido o tendrá jamás, aprecio a más no poder que Chris Sanders la planteara como una respuesta directa a la creciente frustración que sufría por el hecho de que su empleo como jefe de historia en la compañía consistiera demasiado a menudo en concebir formas creativas de asesinar horriblemente a pérfidos e irredimibles villanos.
Debió anticipar que acabaría de patitas en la calle. Pero está bien que firmara mi película Disney favorita por el camino.
"I remember everyone that leaves."
Fifteen minutes in and I had tears in my eyes already and was crying for the rest of the film. No matter how many times I have watched 'Lilo & Stitch' over the past fourteen years I can never not cry at this film. To me, this film speaks personally on so many levels, more so than it did when it was first released when I was only six years old. It reminds me of when I moved house and left all my friends and the comfort of the town I had lived in for the first nine years of my life, and started the remainder of my childhood somewhere I was almost completely unfamiliar with. Moving school was worse as…

Lilo: Oh good! My dog found the chainsaw!
Massively underrated ... Top 5 Disney for me.
My thoughts: I remember thinking this was just all right, and I still see plenty of flaws upon rewatching it, but there's an awful lot of heart in here. We have two sisters dealing with a broken home, just trying to figure out how to survive without parents. We have Stitch, a hilarious alien that's easy to love, who learns the importance of family. And we have an intergalactic chase. It's a much stronger film than I'd remembered and I'm glad to have rewatched it.
My 9 2/3 year old's thoughts: When I watched Lilo & Stitch for the first time, I thought that it was not gonna be good. When I watched it, I thought it was good, but when…
Synopsis: After the death of her parents, young Lilo is lonely. She doesn't have any friends on her small Hawaiian island, and her big sister and legal guardian Nani is working hard to try and make ends meet. While at the shelter looking for a dog to adopt, she comes across Stitch, who she thinks is a dog; what she doesn't know is that he is actually an alien DNA experiment who escaped his captors. Stitch was programmed for destruction, and, when he and Nani invite him into their house, everything seems to go wrong. Will they learn the true meaning of family before it's too late?
My Review: Even though this movie came out well over a decade ago,…
I can't even describe the amount of love I have for this film, definitely one of my favorites from Disney.
such a weird concept but i liked this one
Currently in my daughter's movie rotation. I do find it funny though that the last time I saw this back in 2002, I cried at the end. Now, I have no emotions left, I guess.
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Complete list. :-(
