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…
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.
Lilo & Stitch marks one of the last truly great films to come out of Disney Animation Studios and despite always wanting to I never really got the chance to watch it. A huge loss on my behalf as it turns out to be a hilarious and genuinely warm-hearted piece of animation, harking back to the now classic E.T. and The Iron Giant. The concept wasn't new by the time it came out and we'd already been enriched with two lovable aliens in the past, but as is evident with this it still wasn't fully explored yet. Stitch at first appears to be almost the exact opposite of the calm and sensitive giant/E.T., being aggressive in nature and distrusting almost everyone.…
Είχα δει όλα τα επεισόδια της σειράς Lilo & Stitch που έβαζε τα μεσημέρια η ΕΤ1, αλλά για κάποιο λόγο είτε δεν είχα δει την ταινία ή δε θυμάμαι αν την είχα δει οπότε μου φάνηκε κάπως σαν origin story. Πάντα μου άρεσε η ιδιαιτερότητα της Χαβάης και όλα τα χρώματα που δημιουργεί, αλλά εδώ είναι απλά η παλέτα για να ζωγραφίσει έναν καμβά γεμάτο από ζωντανά συναισθήματα χωρίς καλούπια, κάτι που σπάνια συναντάς σε ταινίες της Disney. Η σκηνή της αποχώρησης του Stitch είναι αγνό κλάμα.
Κοιτάζοντας πίσω είναι η πιο αυθεντική ταινία της Disney πριν το Wreck-It Ralph. Δε γίνεται να μην το αγαπήσεις που λέει και ο dark tyler.
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.
A disney film that was originally released in that period of my life, where I desperately wanted to seem older than I was, and so watching Disney films was out of the question. Luckily it lasted only a few years and now I've finally gotten round to this heartfelt little pearl of a movie.
One of those 'children's films' where I'm pretty sure us grown-ups have a harder emotional time watching it than the children. The story of little Lilo and her sister struggling to make do is beautifully portrayed. Just a lovely experience to watch this fantastically innovative little girl discover how truly amazing she is, even if the other children her age only see her as weird. A great tribute to everything and everyone who is a little off-kilter in this world. And in the end, isn't that really all of us?
A good family comedy with some darker moments and really great animation. The voice acting pretty phenomenal but unfortunately the songs aren't great. Lots of the better jokes are subtle physical gags and they really work. This was more fun than I expected from a rewatch.
Watched this for the first time ever. It was an incredible disappointment. What started as a strong story between two sisters in a difficult situation quickly descended into nonsense. Stitch was not an interesting character, and his development wasn't believable. Lilo was a strong character until Stitch showed up, and as their relationship was forced on each other (and the audience) I quickly lost any positive feelings towards her. Nani was the strongest character of all, but even that falls a little short in the 3rd act when - faced with the reality of space aliens - she doesn't even flinch. (She was a tough woman, but no one is that tough.)
The final chase and action scene seemed like…
A bit of an oddity in the Disney canon, Lilo & Stitch tells the story of an orphaned pair of sisters trying to stay together while being investigated by social services. Oh, and they also adopt a ferocious artificially-created killing machine from outer space as their pet dog.
It's nowhere close to the standard of Disney classics, but hey, at least it's better than The Black Cauldron.
I'm surprised at how emotional this film makes me sometimes...
I liked it! Hawaiians and aliens, who knew. Stitch kicks ass.
Awesome movie! I've seen it quite a few times before but it never gets old! One of my favorite Disneys
Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois are the writer/directors behind an ever-growing well of children/family films, my favorite of which is 2010's How To Train Your Dragon, their 2nd film. But 8 years before they partnered up with Dreamworks Pictures, they had the opportunity to do what animators dreams of: make a full-length animated Disney picture…ON THEIR OWN TERMS. And it shows! Lilo & Stitch comes from a defined voice, someone who has dealt with the hardships of a broken family and the responsibility that comes with caring for others. After the movie's prologue, the remainder is set entirely in Hawaii, and the setting/environment is laid on thick, which is at first mildly distracting, but quickly settles into a zone of comfort,…
I seem to have not only lost my ticket stub, but I also apparently never recorded the date of this viewing. I took my cousin to see it at the Oldham 8, though; I know that much. She was 7 at the time, and that summer, she would often hang out at the consignment shop our family owned. If things were kind of slow, I sometimes would take her to see a movie. It was a nice arrangement; it gave her something to do instead of becoming bored - and distracting/annoying to everyone else at the shop - but more importantly, it got me out of work and into a movie (even if it wasn't always something I'd have chosen…
