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…
Science fiction, Elvis Presley, and the importance of family in any form are the genre, rhythmic, and thematic threads that bind "Lilo & Stitch," a buoyant and raucous animated adventure. Featuring an incorrigible alien and his adopted Hawaiian family, the Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders-directed film is a big-hearted, beautifully rendered, and fully entertaining piece of work.
Beginning somewhere in the reaches of outer-space, "Lilo & Stitch" finds a tiny-yet-powerful alien creature, a rogue scientific experiment, landing on planet Earth where he is adopted by young Lilo and her older sister. Pursued by interplanetary captors and wreaking all manner of havoc on Lilo and her sister's attempt to create domestic normalcy, the newly named Stitch chomps and charms his way through a…
u know how a film makes you really happy but also crushes your soul into a fine dust by the time the credits roll.
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?
Modern Disney classic. A girl adopts what she thinks is a weird dog, but he turns out to be more than she, and her sister, bargained for. Amazing!
"This is my family, I found it, all on my own"
Brb crying, what a cute movie.
"Oh good, my dog found the chainsaw"
Formally incoherent and narratively frigid. Clearly the result of a number of drafts seesawing into each other. At times feels entirely charmless but so confident in its world building it's hard to hate. (It's equally hard to like).
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
As a kid, my absolute favorite Disney films were always the ones that contained settings and themes which directly to what I've always been interested in: history and mythology.
Those being Pocahontas, Hercules, Emperor's New Groove and Aladdin. I would add Hunchback of Notre Dame to that list but I only watched it relatively recently (and I will ashamedly add that I only saw the direct to video/DVD sequel as a kid as well).
But those films never had the charm, the wit, the consistency, and the memories that I associated with Lilo and Stitch. They were never as relatable, and they didn't spawn franchises and sequels that contained world building, characterization and an expanded universe and experience that I…
me, with tears in my eyes: ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind
(¿Uds. pueden creer que esta película me siga haciendo llorar? No hay derecho.)
Lilo and Stitch is a sweet,cute movie with a lot of heart I was surprised how modern it was, dealing with death and how to cope with that and knowing this is the new normal like the Nani did not expect to be to raise her sister when she's young herself. The film shows it's how much the Nani dealing with, the social worker on her back also juggling a job and taking care of her sister made me want to root her so bad, very surprising coming from a Disney movie. I also noticed this was one of Disney's last hand-drawn film, and it is beautiful, while I watching it, I thinking to myself why they stop? I know digital is the way to go now but Hand drawn still has a lot to offer to in animation.
Way better than I ever remembered it being. I'd say it's the most underrated animated Disney movie but Emperor's New Groove pulls ahead slightly. Still, this movie is quite funny and hits home some good lessons about the importance of family, even when dysfunctional. Only real problem for me (which at the same time is sort of a plus) is the runtime. It's quite short at 85 minutes. This caused some of the more important plot points to feel rushed. Like I wasn't given time to get to the same conclusions and feelings characters in the movie got to. But really, it's pretty minor and the short runtime also helps the movie breeze along very easily. Highly recommend this hidden gem
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
