I get so mad when people talk shit about Wonderwall. I’ll burn down your school I don’t care.
Previous viewings: I have sort of a long history with this movie. I think I had just finished 7th grade when it came out, and at this point my parents were starting to bug me that I was “too old for Disney movies” (HAHAHAHA). Usually I would see kid’s movies with my younger brother but I think he had seen it with a friend or something, and for a while I didn’t have anyone else to see it with. To make this long story short— eventually I saw it with my friend Alex, who usually didn’t like Disney movies (like, we had seen Monsters Inc together and she hated it). We both really loved Lilo and Stitch, and thought it was just really cute and funny.
Then after that, my little brother got it on DVD and we used to watch it a lot. Before we started joining our parents for their “Friday night Bollywood movie,” the two of us used to go watch our own movie together on one of the other TVs. We were only allowed to rent movies during school breaks though, so we pretty much just flipped between Lilo and Stitch, Shrek, and Ice Age.
Then…I guess I didn’t really watch it again until college, but then it ended up becoming mine and Emily’s go-to Disney movie for mid-terms weeks (you know, those crappy weeks when you just need a good Disney movie to make things better). I swear we must have watched it like…twice a year at the very least? I think the two of us are probably responsible for 99% of this movie’s check-outs from the UR multimedia center.
This viewing: It’s still good. I just love this movie. I guess I can kind of see why it doesn’t have the mass appeal of a lot of other Disney movies, but I do feel like this one is really underrated. I know people on tumblr love it, but I feel like Disney doesn’t seem to care for it very much. I think it’s great, though. It’s so cute and so unique, not to mention hilarious. Plus I love all the characters so much— Lilo especially. It’s nice to see a really good Disney movie that has a message about family.
There isn’t much I don’t like about this one, actually. The first time I saw it I did get annoyed that Jumba changes his mind and agrees to help Stitch so easily, but I guess after watching this a few dozen times that doesn’t bother me too much any more. Then there is the question— how did Gantu think that his little glass capsule would be strong enough to hold Stitch, given how easily he escaped at the start of the movie?
Those really don’t bother me enough to make me like this movie any less, though. I give it a 9/10
I think the reason that Disney doesn’t really care for Lilo and Stitch is because it was made by Chris Sanders and Dean Dublois, both of whom were unceremoniously dumped by Disney after they thought their future project at Disney called American Dog (later completely scrapped and retitled Bolt) was too bold and risky. Apparently Disney heads didn’t want to let Sanders have his way with the story. Of course Chris Sanders and Dean Deblois landed on their feet nicely by making a film that I think is better than every single Disney studios release in the past decade, a little film called How to Train Your Dragon.
Just finished the season 1 finale of True Detective and that finale just put down True Detective as a TV show for the ages. What an impeccably crafted transcendent piece of television filmmaking this season was. We should be thanking our lucky stars that Cary Fukunaga, Matthew McConaughey, and Woody Harrelson blessed us with 8 brilliant episodes of television mastery. If you haven’t seen True Detective yet you NEED to get on that shit and breathe in the richness of the masterful storytelling, character work, directing, and acting. Absolutely incredible television show and I have no idea how they’re going to live up to that first season come season two. Absolutely phenomenal work!

The long night has begun… but even in the deepest night, there are some who dream of dawn.
On Alderaan, the Prince Consort delivers a baby girl into the loving arms of his Queen.
And on Tatooine, a Jedi Master brings an infant boy to the homestead of Owen and Beru Lars—then he rides his eopie off into the Jundland Wastes, toward the setting suns.
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins—but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.
Love is more than a candle. Love can ignite the stars.

"And one of the great things about the time-spanning structure of this season is the way we get to see the partnership evolve over a long period, from the uneasy alliance of 1995 to the bitter 7-year itch of 2002 to these two being so old and weary and useless in the company of anyone else that it might finally occur to Rust to ask Marty about his personal life. There is nothing for either of them but each other and this last piece of business." —(x)
