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…
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…
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?
u know how a film makes you really happy but also crushes your soul into a fine dust by the time the credits roll.
Lilo & Stitch, all throughout its running time, toys with the delicate boundary of how fucking depressing you can be before inducing self-harm. It gets close.
Scene after scene, things go tits up, and the tits go more up as the more tits go up. Had it not been for the fast pace of animated films, and lingered on certain segments a tad longer, I'd have cried.
However you shake it, though, Lilo & Stitch is a classic. Maybe not exactly Saturday night, 'lads night in', entertainment, but goddamn, it's good and at times genuinely funny or sad. I always say that ain't no mean feat.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Eww, what the hell was this movie? I'm a huge Disney fan but this sucked. I haven't seen this movie up until now because it seemed strange and unappealing to me. I noticed that the collective rating on Netflix was over 4 stars so I figured I'd finally give it a shot.
Open on the worst first scene in any Disney movie. Stitch is frequently called an abomination - yeah, because he is repulsive. Why do people adore this character? The are things to like about this movie and Stitch has nothing to do with them.
I knew going in that Stitch was an alien but I did not know he was a criminal fugitive who was created to be…
¿Esta película tiene 13 años? Holy crap...
Era de mis favoritas de niña, y ahora que la volví a ver, amé esa sensación de reecontrarme con un viejo favorito :) Es de esas que me recuerdan mucho a mi hermano, cuando nos atascábamos de cine como si no hubiera un mañana.
Follows the old conflicts-arise-because-people-blame-other-people-for-shit-they-clearly-didn't-do-when-they-had-every-reason-to-earlier rule and sometimes mixes cartoon logic with...let's say regular logic...in an unsatisfying manner.
The emotional beats are really well done, though.
Still just as memorable and touching. One of Disney's best.
For those hump day blues.
Lilo & Stitch is kind of weird to me. I fell in love with the movie when it first came out, and it instantly became one of my favorite Disney films. This maintained for a little while, but I think that fell down after a few years, when the mediocrity of the sequels and TV series killed the moment for me, and I wasn't watching too many Disney movies anymore. Around the time I was rediscovering their films, I was blown away with how much the film still holds up to me, and kept it close to my heart... until some time passed, and I didn't get around to watching it much anymore.
And seeing the film again, I still love a lot of it- the use of watercolors, the sisterly bond, all things Jumba and Pleakley- but it will probably won't rotate among my favorites for too long otherwise. Still easily a highlight from the last decade, though.
I could see why this appeals to many people. It does not have the conventional design of an animated Disney movie. It had the potential to create a series (it did) and launch merchandise which is not always a bad thing. The characters are relatable both human and aliens.
Ohana means family.
