#Stitch

Have you ever met a person that says, “I guess Disney’s okay… I watched Lion King, but I haven’t seen anything since then,” and you said, “But you watched Lilo and Stitch, right?” and he or she said “Um…no…” and you spasmed in your chair and arranged a movie-viewing party right then?

Just me?

It didn’t achieve the hoped-for Elvis Revival, but Lilo and Stitch is packed with awesome.  The movie is respectful of the Hawaiian culture interacting with modernity, and it confronts issues other movies dance around: grief, behavior problems, unemployment, adoption, government responsibility, and the high  mortality rate of frogs on American highways.
