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.
Lilo and Stich is a really nice fun animated family film with a cool concept and lovable characters.
I love this movie so much man
She comes from a broken home
I rewatched it and I just couldn't believe how much I loved it.
"Oh good, my dog found the chainsaw."
Simply the most epic moment in Disney movie history. Well that and the last 15 to 20 minutes of 'The Lion King.'
Oh, and this may contain my favorite montage of all time. Well that and that montage in the 2011 Muppet film.
Oh, and this might on of my favorite Disney movies. Well that, and 29 other movies.
Disney does something unconventional...

L&S stands out among the Disney animated features as one of the most original. Lilo, Stitch, and the other characters are wonderfully complex and sweetly anarchic creations, animated with a loving touch. A nice mixture of hilarity and sincerity that kept Disney relevant during some rough early-aughts years.
I cry!!!!!! This is such a good Disney movie!!!!!
