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.
i think there's something in my eye.
I never realized this takes place in a universe where every license plate in Hawaii is "A113".
The directors here make confident use of their "camera", playing out comedic moments in great two shots that guide your eye using timing, color, and movement. They trust the audience to edit themselves, which is honestly one of the most important cinema qualities to me right now. Beyond that, they make excellent use of the setting and use music fantastically. (Oh God the credit music just switched gears to an early-2000s Radio Disney elvis rendition, it's just awful ((yes I'm quick to write up my reviews on movies like this, sue me)))
I wasn't as crazy about the animation itself. to my untrained eye, it looks like they combined a few different types of animation in ways that didn't quite…
Lilo & Stitch is one of the most beautiful films ever made, a genuinely touching tale about broken families and how they can sometimes fit back together.
Excuse me this is more perfect than I remembered.
Looking back at it now, I can't honestly remember anything that memorable about Lilo and Stitch. It's one of the most uninspired Disney movies of all time. It's just plain silly when you think about it. In comparison to Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, it barely holds a candle.
Classic with quality music
Was never a fan of this.
This movie is so cute, sweet, and funny.
this movie is an emotional KICK IN THE ASS
