  • Lilo & Stitch

    Lilo & Stitch 2002

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Mar, 2015

    This has to be one of my favorite Disney films ever. It's gorgeously animated (with interesting looking characters that aren't quite on the stereotypical Disney model) with a very sly and clever sense of humor. It says much for the character of Lilo that I find her just as interesting as Stitch and the emotional moments resonate. There's also a science fiction feel to the movie that I'll freely admit I am a sucker for.

And yes, the shots and camera placement isn't very inspired. But this movie works on its…

    This movie is one of my favorites so a warning should be given. Gushing is going to!

    This movie has a brilliant cast. I'm not going to name all of them, but they're all fantastic. I will mention that this is the movie that brought both Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell and Justin Long to my attention. I also want to say that we all know Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver are great actors, but this movie reminds me of…
