Watched Lilo and Stitch. I don’t really feel like writing a full review, but I do want to post a short commentary.
Lilo & Stitch tells the story of a dysfunctional family – two orphans, one a young adult, the other a little kid, who fight against the threat of being seperated by a social worker. This struggle becomes interesting when Experiment 626 aka Stitch, an artifical lifeform designed to cause havoc and destruction, crash-landes in their area.
Of course, since Lilo & Stitch is a Disney movie, it’s pretty harmless overall. There are some wonderful scenes and some moments of much appreciated sarcasm but I feel that had Lilo & Stitch been designed with a more adult audience in mind, it could have been even cooler. Also, especially in the later part of the movie there are some very mushy scenes, as is normal for Disney animated movies. The animation itself is pretty decent – some are downright beautifully drawn – and there are some good action scenes.
Still, I don’t see Lilo & Stitch sticking out as a particularily big achievement in the history of animated movies. It’s fun to watch, sort of, with some real laugh-out-loud funny scenes. Yet if I ad to pay for this movie, I’d be pretty disappointed think.
So, a half thumb up I’d say.
