Kids movies are doing so well today...At least this one was
good, they past few I've been seeing haven't been enjoyable in
the least bit. But, let's put that behind, Disney's latest
work, Lilo & Stitch, was absolutely delightful and fun;
it's great for the whole family! Don't just think it's only
good for the kids (the 80 year old guy in back of me had a
heart-attack; he was enjoying it so much). This film was
astonishingly wonderful, and I can't stretch this enough.
the most enjoyable things in this 87 minute long animated
feature was the warm-heartedness of the characters. I found
myself falling in love with all of the personalities who each
own an incredible sense of indignations wit. They had their
own way of doing things, but in the end, all of began to live
together harmonically. This film had a meaning; and that's
that love should over power hate, this will be taken well by
certainly a new idea for a Disney movie; behind the aliens and
Hawaiian waves there is a true meaning. This is about a needy
family of two, who are doing their best to survive but can't.
Quite serious issues should be expressed in this manor to
children. Lilo and Stitch
sets new standards for animated features.
thing I liked the best in the film, though, in this film was
the way it incorporated common issues into the most harmonic
places. It's the first cartoon (besides South Park)
that captured real issues; which was briefly discussed in the
last paragraph. The emotional feelings they incorporated
something extremely real into a "not so real movie" was
ingenious. Their were constant emotional breakdowns in Lilo's
home, but there to simplify them was Stitch, an alien. This
works; plain and simple.
& Stitch in my opinion is one of Disney's best efforts
since The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. It
truly is a truly magical cultural enchantment, and a meshing
of two different worlds. It is a definite must see, and will
most likely be on my "Top 10 of 2002" list!
