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.
Another really great kids' movie from Disney, with some excellent universe-building to give the story context, but some wonderful stuff on earth too. All the main characters are three dimensional, but best of all is Stitch, who isn't quite the usual cuddly Disney creature. He can be downright scary when ,the lights are out and he's looking at you in that disconcertingly direct way, where you can't tell if he's not thinking at all, sizing you up, or wondering what you taste like.
Some great music too backing up the action, very, very enjoyable.
what can I say it a childhood favourite
On the off chance it might mellow out her wild behavior, Lilo is allowed to adopt a dog. It's fluffy, with long ears, big eyes, and a soft, wet nose. It's also a blue genetic experiment made by an evil space alien.
I didn't originally like Lilo & Stitch, which surprises me considering I liked the continuation series. It always just seemed like a really empty film, which it kind of is. Not a lot of big plot moments actually happen. Rather, it's mostly full of character moments. Now that I'm older, I can better appreciate these things and the film in general.
Lilo & Stitch is a very attractive and heartfelt film that does a lot of difficult things right. It's not perfect, obviously, but it's still very good and has firmly earned its place in the Disney catalog.
Some fun, even great moments in this movie, I was a fan of the TV show and hadn't seen this before, brought back some memories.
It drags a little in places, but overall an enjoyable film.
I love it.
Was gonna say 2 1/2 Stars but gave it another half star for Elvis music ;-)
Ever since it came out I wanted to see this, but just didn't. Even when the cartoon series hit the TVs and I saw a few episodes of that I never went out to get it. I always wanted to wait until someone I know owns it and I can borrow it or it airs on TV, which never happened in 12 years, until now.
It started very nicely. The animation is absolutely gorgoeus and Lilo is an interesting character that made me laugh quite a bit in the first third of the film. The whole did lose it's spice after a while though and I got pretty bored to the end of it. Under the great Disney animation lies…
Still great on a second viewing. This may eventually replace The Aristocats as my favorite animated Disney film.
