Pictures from my favourite artists! :)

Seen as October is coming up, I'm working on a 'Top 25 Favourite Horror Films' meme.... but before I fill it in, I need some assistance. In your opinion, would you count Felidae as a horror film? I'm wondering whether it counts as one. :o

Hello my friends! :wave: Here is my next Duckyworth’s Thoughts review – which will be my last Disney sequel review for a while – but do not worry, this is not my last Disney sequel review PERIOD, it’s just that I’ve got a few films I’d like to review before I get to my Hallowe’en reviews – two I’ve been meaning to review for a while, and a film I’ll be seeing in the cinema very soon. :aww: Sorry if I haven’t been able to review many Disney sequels this summer – I’ve been having a lot of things going on in the background this summer – such as driving lessons, a voluntary job, drawing more comics, watching some new animated shows, going on holiday – and such. But I have had some fun reviewing these films, and I hope you have had as much fun reading my reviews of these Disney sequels. :aww: But as I said... more Disney sequels will be coming in the future.

So, my final Disney sequel review for now will be for my FAVOURITE Disney sequel, and quite possibly the most emotional of the Disney sequels, in my opinions – Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch…. :o

 

The original Lilo and Stitch film was a film that I watched a LOT when I was a child – and it was one of the first Disney films I saw at the cinema. :aww: The story follows the tale of a lovable, yet destructive, alien Experiment 626 – a creature created by an alien mad scientist Dr Jumba Jookiba. As punishment, Jumba is locked up, and 626 is set to be banished. However, 626 escapes and crashes to Earth – eventually befriending a little girl named Lilo. By the way, Lilo is perhaps the best written child character I’ve ever seen, because she acts EXACTLY like a little child, and the writers really succeed in making her likeable. Another thing I give the film serious credit for is the subject matter of broken families – Lilo and her older sister Nani’s parents were killed in a car accident, and now Nani has to prove herself to a social worker Cobra Bubbles (Sorry… but… THAT NAME :rofl: ) that she is a suitable guardian to Lilo…. Which is made more problematic by 626, now renamed Stitch, having to learn to become a model citizen, and dealing with Jumba, and the bumbling Agent Pleakley trying to recapture Stitch. However, as time goes on, Stitch begins settling in to the family, and he learns ‘Ohana means family. Family means nobody is left behind or forgotten.’ :aww: And after saving Lilo from a villainous… whale alien :XD: big dummy named Captain Gantu, who was trying to recapture Stitch for the awesomely designed Grand Councilwoman (seriously, the Grand Councilwoman’s design is awesome. :D ), and the Grand Councilwoman allows Stitch, Jumba and Pleakley to live out their exile (Jumba and Pleakley were banned from coming back with the aliens due to failing to capture Stitch) on Earth, making Lilo and Nani’s family complete once more. :aww:

Now, another awesome thing about Lilo and Stitch was the TV series that was made where Lilo and Stitch tracked down the other 625 experiments that had been released on the Hawaii. The TV series was one that I saw a LOT as a child, and it was one of the better TV series based on a Disney film that was made by Disneytoon Studios. Fitting that one of the better Disney sequels would be made based on Lilo and Stitch, and also – Lilo and Stitch 2 is actually my FAVOURITE one of the Disney sequels…. Like The Tigger Movie, it gets surprisingly DARK in places and brings forth quite a few strong emotions – and best of all, it doesn’t re-hash the first film, attempt horrid morals, shoe-horn in horrid humour into the first film, have terrible animation or bash the moral of the film over the audience’s head at all. So, don’t worry folks, there won’t be any Belle’s Magical World, Lion King 1 ½, Little Mermaid 2 or Hunchback 2 problems in this film. :phew: So, let’s take a look at Lilo and Stitch 2 – but I’m warning you readers, this film gets very, VERY sad and quite shocking in places – just a quick heads up… :ohnoes: But at least it’s sadness we’re SUPPOSED to feel, rather than sadness at how bad the film is – like I did with Belle’s Magical World… ^^;
Also, as another heads up - seen as this Disney sequel is significantly shorter than other films I review - it's only an hour long - the review may be shorter in comparison. Any Duckyworth's Thoughts review of mine that doesn't come in at 12 pages on Microsoft Word disappoints myself and makes me feel like I'm cheating the people reading them who probably expect more detail - I mean, I was able to say MORE here than for the failure that was my Kronk's New Groove review (that's one of my least favourite reviews, by the way... :hmm: ), but if you people reading ever feel I should go into more detail about anything - feel free to comment. :aww: 

 

And when I say this film gets pretty shocking in places – I’m not joking when I say that the very first scene shocked me when I first saw this film for the first time… :o With some brilliant animation – just as good as the first film :clap: - Stitch is…. Driving his spaceship around Hawaii… wreaking havoc… So much so that after destroying a BUILDING, and that ice cream man drops his ice cream again (by the way, the first Lilo and Stitch film was the main reason why my favourite ice cream flavour is mint chocolate chip – because that large sunburnt man kept dropping it :XD: - at least he got to lick some of it this time…. ), he BLOWS UP Lilo’s house and goes berserk…. :ohnoes: This cannot be really happening… this must be a nightmare…. :ohnoes:

Actually, luckily, it turns out that it is… :phew: A nightmare. Apparently, poor Stitch has been suffering from many bad nightmares recently… Well, I doubt he’s been suffering from any Gregor Mendel nightmares like Francis from Felidae did, or Snitter’s dreams about the death of his owner from Plague Dogs, but from what I could see from that nightmare – Stitch’s could be JUST as horrendous. Once again – WOW, talk about a way to start off a film… :o But luckily, the film lightens the mood a bit by having Lilo play psychiatrist to Stitch, who figures out that Stitch is worrying about turning bad again. By the way, even though they couldn’t get Lilo’s original voice actress back for this film, Dakota Fanning (who also voiced Coraline), does a really good job here. And of course, Chris Sanders is just as cute as ever as Stitch. :aww: And… only Lilo could have her favourite book be ‘Plastic surgeries gone wrong’ ^^; ). After Lilo tests Stitch’s goodness levels by seeing him rush to stop wanton destruction of Lilo’s stuff – Lilo says her prognosis is that Stitch’s goodness levels are extra high. Now, some of you may know that a pet peeve of mine is when the words ‘prognosis’ and ‘diagnosis’ are mixed up….. A prognosis is an estimated guess as to where someone’s condition is going. A diagnosis is practically what’s going on with someone right now. Now, I personally think prognosis is the better term here… But, I don’t know… What are your thoughts on it?

Anyway, after some funny bits with Jumbaa and Pleakley (I love how they animated Jumbaa eating the pancakes, the crop circle joke, and Pleakley’s ‘plans’ about Earth research – involving reading gossip magazines and watching talk shows), Lilo and Stitch cutely ask Nani (seriously, that moment when they say please is ADORABLE) if they can take the hovercraft they now own to hula class. While they’re on their way to hula class, I still love that ‘Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride’ song that plays here – it’s almost like an earworm for me. :aww: And by the way, the first time I saw this film, one scene that I questioned was when the hovercraft goes under the water – and remembering Stitch’s problems with water in the first film, this seems a bit questionable…. But let’s think about this - now that he’s become good, maybe he’s learned to keep himself calm around water – after all, remember that one scene at the end of Lilo and Stitch when David was taking Lilo and Stitch to shore on his surfboard, and he wasn’t panicking in the slightest – in fact, he was actually warming up to being around water despite his fear of it, in my opinion? So… that’s my thoughts on that bit. Also, some people may nitpick that Lilo isn’t wearing her hula outfit when they go on the hovercraft, but they suddenly appear in the next scene, but the hovercraft most likely has a storage compartment. :aww: I’ve read some reviews online with people nitpicking about that part – so those are my thoughts on it.

Lilo arrives at hula class, where after an annoying bit with… Myrtle Edmunds (oh great, SHE’S in this film… :rage: ), Kumu announces that in three days, the May Day celebrations are taking place, and a Hula competition will be held. Whoever makes the best original hula that best expresses the Aloha spirit will lead the celebrations as the winning dance. Ah yes, yet another thing I have to give the film credit for – I’ve been to Hawaii before, and it has great views, great culture and great people. And this film manages to portray each of these extremely well….. Except for Myrtle… She’s just horrid. :x She has a needless bash at Lilo for being late to class, and Kumu says ‘In the spirit of Aloha, we should be tolerant of others…’ Well, if only I could say the same thing for ClownWig McWelding Glasses here… :XD: By the way, that’s a reference to a rather funny insult one of Stitch’s fellow experiments says to Myrtle – and it’s true! :lol: Everyone in class gets excited while thinking about their hula dances…. Until the touchy subject of the other girls’ mothers helping them out is brought up…. Obviously, this is a touchy subject for Lilo…. You know, I know it’s not REALLY applicable here, as poor Lilo’s parents sadly lost their lives in that car accident, but – in Disney films, hell, in ANY film, why is often the MOTHER that gets killed off… Just a bit of a side comment here… :confused: Oh, and by the way, when Myrtle whispers ‘She doesn’t have a mom’, regarding Lilo, I just want to SLAP that brat… :rage: But I do like how her supposed ‘friends’ call her out on it, by saying ‘you shouldn’t say that’ and ‘not everyone has a mom’. Myrtle yells back, shrugging off the insults she threw towards Lilo with ‘ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, don’t bite my head off!’ – but this raise some interesting thoughts… :hmm: Hmm – something that I always wondered is whether Myrtle’s relationship with her ‘friends’ is similar to Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon – I always thought that Silver Spoon was being held under Diamond Tiara’s hoof, and Silver Spoon WANTS to leave Diamond Tiara, but is held under Diamond Tiara’s threats….. :ohnoes: Anyway, Kumu notices Lilo is upset, and shows her a book that holds all the past winners, and Lilo’s mom was one of the past winners in 1973 – and this gives Lilo inspiration that she can win the competition. :aww: But…. The frizzy haired freak Myrtle has other plans…. Lilo tells her that she thinks she has a chance of winning – she has a point, everyone has as much chance as everyone else – and later on in the film, it’s shown that Myrtle never had a chance – but Myrtle keeps insulting her, and says…’You’ll NEVER be like your mom… NEVER.’ :iconseethingplz: And… to be honest, if I was in Lilo’s position – I’d go to punch Myrtle’s lights out too. I also love that next little montage of Stitch taking photos of Lilo beating the living hell out of Myrtle – including one where he smiles to the camera…. And one of Kumu coming out to prevent hell from breaking loose… Oh, I wanted to see the one where Myrtle gets impaled on a flagpole – er, I mean…. Er… sorry… ^^; I just forgot how ENRAGING Myrtle is in this film….

Of course, Kumu goes to Nani and tells her about Lilo and Myrtle falling out – by the way, does MYRTLE ever get comeuppance for this? I mean, I know Lilo lashed out (and believe me, from personal experience as a child, I know that rising to the bait that a bully puts out to you and lashing out at them won’t ease the problem, it will make it worse ^^;), but still, Lilo says Myrtle pushed her buttons later on, so…. Does Myrtle ever get punished for starting the argument? :hmm: Anyway, Kumu comes inside, and…. *sees Pleakley and Jumbaa causing havoc* Oh dear lord… :giggle: I will NEVER get tired of Pleakley and Jumbaa – these two are just hilarious – and I actually see Pleakley as being one of the few gay Disney characters, in my opinion. I LOVE that bit where he and Jumbaa dress up as relatives…. And then, when Pleakley puts his hat on Kumu, he says ‘it looks dashing, even on HIM!’ :lol: By the way, another subplot comes in here, when David comes in and asks Nani out on a date – but Nani is too preoccupied with family troubles to find time for dates. Another little thing about this film – there are quite a few subplots involved in this film, and I have to give the film credit for taking on quite a lot going on and still managing to keep it focused on the MAIN conflict of the film (which I will get to soon). And especially for a Disney sequel, that is impressive. :) After Kumu has a talk to Lilo about her behaviour that day, Lilo promises that she’ll behave and that she has a chance of living up to her mother’s title of winning the hula competition…..

Oh, and the next part is one of my favourites. :giggle: After Stitch comforts Lilo and assures her that they can win the hula competition, I will say right now that the music in this film is just BEAUTIFUL – especially the main theme that plays when Stitch gets Lilo a flower to put in her hair, showing that she’s more like her mother than she thinks. :aww: And so, the two go through a lot of possible hulas. I can honestly say that I would pay good money to see a vampire bat hula…. :lol: Another really fun little subplot comes up when Nani has been making food and preparations for a family fun night – she’s so determined to have family funtime like her mom used to, that she literally DRAGS Lilo and Stitch out of bed while they’re trying to think of a hula dance, and sends them downstairs to have ‘family fun… FUN FUN FUN!!’ And something tells me that Lilo isn’t the ONLY odd sister, as Nani’s idea of family fun is getting everyone together to watch ‘Them!’ and making sci-fi snacks – including alien eyeball dumplings. Oh, and when Pleakley complains, Jumbaa shoves one in Pleakley’s mouth, and the timing is just perfect when Pleakley starts coughing then says ‘it’s good’. :XD: And later on, when a giant ant in the film drops a skeleton, Jumbaa remarks ‘it’s so beautiful’… :rofl: By the way, a little thing about David I noticed in this film is that he vaguely reminds me of Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2 for some reason… I don’t know, I just see some similarities in the design and voice, in my opinion. :D

But here is where the film begins to get…. Dramatic.. :ohnoes: Stitch starts suffering ill effects from the glitch the film is named after and starts wreaking havoc…. Jumbaa, realising that something is up, heads up to the spaceship with Pleakley following, to check out what the problem is. And now, the film comes to yet another favourite moment of mine – showing the CREATION of Stitch. :aww: With some classic crazy scientist laughter – and coughing :lol: - Jumbaa zaps the…. ADORABLE baby Stitch to life… Daww, when he unfurls… And I like the joke where Jumbaa says ‘so cute, so fluffy, even…. WHERE DID I GO WRONG?!’ But it turns out back then, Stitch was still quite rabid. :lol: Jumbaa says he needs to charge Stitch’s molecules – to do with his stability. However, before the charging can be complete (Oh, and Jumbaa has a REALLY funny moment when he says in a high pitched voice ‘I’M IN THE TUB!’, trying to get the police to go away :lol: ), the Intergalactic Police that arrested Jumbaa in the first film come in to arrest him for illegal genetic experimentation. The electromagnetic bonding was incomplete before Jumbaa and Stitch were taken away, so his inner neurotic circuits are going haywire, which is why he was freaking out earlier. He’s burning out all of his internal energy through these savage outbursts….. And… when I saw this film for the first time, the NEXT line made my jaw drop to the floor…. ‘Can you fix him?’ ‘I must! Or my little Stitch will SHUT DOWN….. for good….’ :jawdrop: Wow… this suddenly got… dark… :cries: Like with The Tigger Movie, I have to give this film credit for combining the darker subject matter and the light hearted moments successfully. :aww:

Stitch worries that he’s turning bad again, but Lilo comes up with a nice little tale about Elvis to cheer him up, saying that even Elvis slipped up at times, so one little setback or accident can’t get them down. :aww: Speaking of Elvis, Lilo and Stitch decide that their way of deciding what to do to receive the idea for their hula is to visit all the places that Elvis went to in Kauai to receive inspiration. Needless to say, seen as it’s Elvis, the song that plays in the next scene where they go around Kauai… but Stitch continues to glitch out :o is pretty cool. On a side note, I’ve always wanted to dip a doughnut in coffee like Lilo does with the policemen when they visit the bakery. Throughout the film, Stitch's uncontrollable destructive behavior drives a wedge between him and Lilo and ruining her chances for success at the hula competition. Lilo and Stitch try to be inspired for their hula, but Stitch keeps malfunctioning because of his molecules. Since Lilo is so concerned about winning the competition, she fails to notice Stitch's glitch and believes his new behavior is deliberate and begins to neglect him….. It’s not AS noticeable in this segment, as Lilo could simply be disappointed in Stitch for these outburst, believing they’re deliberate, but a minor PROBLEM comes up related to this later on. I wouldn’t exactly call Lilo flanderised for what she does later, but it’s just a warning for when it hits…. :hmm:

They eventually come to a bench where Elvis sat – and when a chicken comes along, Lilo thinks it’s a sign to make a hula about a chicken… :rofl: When it starts raining, the map they’re using gets destroyed, and….. the next bit with Stitch is a mixture of adorable and hilarious. Stitch starts crying about them being out of inspiration…. I love the way that Lilo just grabs Stitch by the legs and pulls him away to get dry in a petrol station. :XD: Then, another beautiful moment of Lilo and Stitch films comes in to play – classic Hawaiian music. Two Hawaiian musicians are playing a song about a Hawaiian goddess, and, remembering the tale it details, Lilo and Stitch are given a great idea for their hula. This reminds me quite a bit of that dinner show I went to when I went on holiday to Hawaii in a traditional tribal style, and it makes me happy that, like with Rio, it’s showing some good bits of the culture of the country the film takes place in. It’s things like this that makes me really happy that Chris Sanders chose Hawaii as the place for Lilo and Stitch to take place in. :)

Back to the B plot, where Jumbaa has designed a fusion chamber device that can recharge Stitch and put an end to his glitching. It turns out that Jumbaa and Pleakley must get some ‘primitive Earth technology’ in its place. :lol: Pleakley tries to take a toaster from the house, Mission Impossible style, and IMMEDIATELY runs into Nani. ‘OH NO, IT’S YOU – I mean, Hi Nani, having a good day!’ And to get away with it, Jumbaa and Pleakley say they’re taking it away to make toast…. I LOVE Nani’s expression when she’s staring at Jumbaa in confusion – and it reminds me of another toast related line that would be fitting here –

:iconmarionoplz::iconsaysplz:You know what they say… all toasters toast TOAST! :toast:

Er… actually, all toasters toast BREAD – if you toasted toast, you’d just get a lump of carbon… ^^; Anyway, Nani has to go to work at the surfboard rental shack, but David was trying to give Nani flowers…. Jumbaa tells Pleakley to get David away from the house, and….. The next scene is one of my favourite Pleakley moments. He gives David ‘dating tips’… Pleakley thinks the best way to get Nani to pay more attention to David is to get another woman interested in him…. And so… *sees Pleakley reveal that he’s dressed up as a woman… * Oh my… :giggle: I just LOVE the over the top music that plays here in this sequence – David is looking bashful while Pleakley is pretending to be Inga the foreign exchange student…. This subplot may not be anywhere NEAR as present or emotional as the main conflict, but this is just such a funny little subplot that I have to give the film credit for putting it in, as I crack up every time I see these scenes. Also, considering how dark the MAIN plot is, the story needs something to lighten the mood….

Meanwhile – back to the A plot, where Lilo and Stitch are preparing for their hula dance – I also LOVE the story that the hula is based on here. By the way – this story is actually based on REAL Hawaiian mythology. It’s one of those little bits of attention to detail that I just love about this film. :aww: The patron goddess of Hawaii and the hula dancers, Hi’iaka, fell in love with a mortal human chief named Lohiau. The volcano goddess Pele grew jealous of their friendship, and killed Lohiau by throwing him into a volcano. Hi’iaka discovered Lohiau’s body in a sea cavern, and prayed to the gods to bring back her lost love…. Staying with him the whole night. He came back to life the next day, proving that love is more powerful than death…. :aww: By the way, this ‘love is more powerful than death’ message is, in my opinion, quite a powerful one – for example, even though a loved one may sadly pass away, just because they’re gone, your love for them can carry on forever. :love: And… well, later on in the film, the way this reveals itself to be the main message is pretty…. Deep, in my opinion. In fact, when I saw this for the first time, I felt that this message is one of the deepest morals Disney has ever let out – and considering that this is a Disney sequel, that’s pretty impressive. And once again, I have to give Disney credit for doing their homework on Hawaiian legends and working them well into the story. :)

But sadly…. The hula class rehearsal doesn’t quite go to plan… As Lilo announces her hula idea, Stitch has another episode, and doesn’t come out at first. Just a little side note, the awkward silence where Lilo just drops her arms after calling out Stitch is a nice bit of subtle humour… It’s much funnier than Myrtle’s obnoxious actions here, no doubt… ^^; But then, Stitch, while in one of his rabid episodes, starts freaking out, and ends up wreaking havoc… even going as far as destroying a speaker, and Kumu having to fend him off with a chair… Wow, so is Kumu a closet lion tamer? Would make sense. :lol: Kumu and the girls evacuate the school, and Kumu yells ‘Lilo, you will not be allowed to rehearse at this halau again!’ And… this part here is where some of my few problems with the film comes in. First of all, Kumu calls out Lilo for his destructive behaviour – I mean, okay, he probably thinks Lilo should have better control of her dog, but still, it seems a bit off to me… Also, it’s clear that Stitch hasn’t acted this way for a LONG time, and it’s clearly not normal for him, but instead of asking Stitch if something’s wrong with him, or, I don’t know, taking him to Jumbaa earlier for help, Lilo just acts a bit too horrid towards Stitch – as is shown when she says that she tells Nani that he’s doing it on PURPOSE. Er… why? :confused: Why would she… think that? Nani says it herself ‘you don’t mean that’ and says ‘aren’t you being a bit overdramatic?’ But then Lilo says ‘his goodness level has hit ROCK BOTTOM’….. DOUCHE. :x

Luckily, Stitch goes out to town, doing good deeds for people – such as helping old ladies cross the street, sweeping up the barber’s shop, and giving the barber a toupee to cover his bald spot, and putting sun lotion on beach patrons. And the next bit is just adorable (as if him smiling when he’s patted on the head isn’t adorable enough :giggle: ), as Stitch gets a baby bird that fell from a bird nest, and then feeds the bird, and I also find it cute when he makes a huge sandcastle for a little girl on the beach… :D Yeah, his goodness level has REALLY hit rock bottom… :sarcastic: Again, I know I’m beating a dead horse with this, but the way Lilo lashes out at Stitch in the next few scenes seem a bit malicious… I mean, I know that Stitch acted rabid at the hula rehearsal, but once again, if he hasn’t done that for a while, I’m surprised Lilo isn’t looking into it, like, once again, asking Jumbaa for help… I know she wants to follow in her mother’s shoes really badly, but… well – the next bit, when Lilo is rehearsing on her own, and Stitch comes in telling Lilo that his goodness level is filled up, seems a bit mean-spirited when Lilo just ignores Stitch and crumples up his picture and yells ‘Stitch, just get out of here, fuzzball!’ :o Ouch… Okay, I understand siblings falling out with each other, and I personally see Lilo and Stitch as more than owner and dog – I see them as brother and sister, personally :aww: - but the way that Lilo just yells at Stitch seems a bit mean-spirited. I mean, he isn’t partially responsible for BLOWING UP HER HOUSE, like in the first film, something that WOULD warrant such hate, it was just ruining a hula rehearsal. It’s a big deal for LILO, but I personally see it as being a tad…. Petty… ^^; Anyway, the two start falling out, and then there’s another funny David moment, when Nani opens the door to see David in a …. Bullfighter costume… :lol: And Pleakley as a Spanish dancer… Oh, Pleakley, you shall always amuse me… :XD: As will the next part with Stitch yelling ‘AH, you’re touching me!’ and Lilo says ‘it’s free air…’ Nani eventually breaks them up, after Stitch says it’s not his fault for being destructive… Yes. That is right. :) She makes them walk to their room to apologise – and I have to give credit for Nani for showing her guardian skills by sending them to apologise to each other. That’s another nice little subplot in the film – Nani trying to live up to being as good a guardian as her late mother to Lilo. :aww:

Stitch shows Lilo the chart he made, and that he’s good now. Sadly…. As Lilo goes to get the record player from downstairs, Stitch has another psychotic episode and destroys Lilo’s costumes… :ohnoes: Lilo comes up and – ONCE AGAIN – rather than asking if anything is wrong with Stitch that may be CAUSING him to do this – Stitch said earlier ‘it’s not my fault’ – she says one of the meanest lines in the film, even though Stitch says ‘something wrong with Stitch’…. :( Lilo says ‘I know what’s wrong with you… You’re BAD, and you’ll ALWAYS be bad!’ and then she just storms off….. DOUCHE. :rage: I mean… wow, so much for giving Stitch another chance….. :hmm: Luckily, Jumbaa and Pleakley are done with the fusion chamber…. That sadly blows up, and it’s revealed that Jumbaa didn’t build it, he ordered it… :ohnoes: Now, some people may complain that, seen as Jumbaa and Pleakley build another fusion chamber afterwards, this scene could be seen as being a bit pointless, I personally feel this scene HAS a point. :) Pleakley says some nice words to Jumbaa that gets his hopes up, and the two work together to build another fusion chamber. :aww: Well, two friends having a heartfelt talk together is something that gives a scene a point, in my book….

Nani goes up to see Lilo, and wants to give a talk to Lilo. Believe it or not, but Lilo gets a bit on my nerves in this scene as she lashes out at her sister over Stitch ruining her chances about the competition. :hmm: But to be fair, I can see why the competition means so much to Lilo, as her mother was a past winner, and she wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps. And this scene does lead to a rather nice bit of bonding between Nani and Lilo, as they remember back when their mom was alive and they look at the constellations they made up above Lilo’s bedroom – by the way, I wish I had a bedroom with a retracting roof that allowed me to go stargazing. :XD: Nani says that Lilo doesn’t need to win a contest for her mom to be proud of her – her mom would be proud of her just for being herself. And Lilo returns the saying to Nani… :aww: And this does seem to work, because from this point onwards, Lilo seems to drop her aggressive attitude towards Stitch when she sees him next. :) Speaking of Stitch… he’s overlooking the drawings he made based on his nightmares…. And sweeps them away, trying to tell himself he’s still good…. Wow…. This gets rather sombre…. :(

Yet another cool Elvis song bit comes up next – as Lilo goes on a training regiment the next day for the contest that takes place that evening…. By the way – the way Kumu just hushes the ducklings off the stage is rather adorable… Are those the same ducklings Stitch read The Ugly Duckling to in the end credits of the first film? :giggle: Lilo turns up to the Hula contest, and despite Myrtle’s rather… HORRIBLE stare she gives at her (seriously, I just want to reach into the screen and SLAP Myrtle… That stare she gives is actually kind of hard to look at – it reminds me of that horrid stare Diamond Tiara gave to Applebloom in that MLP:FiM episode Family Appreciation Day :rage: ), Lilo is given hope by a flower which is similar to one her mother wore, and goes in to Kumu, who seems surprisingly… forgiving of Lilo considering the fact he yelled at her the previous day… He tells all the girls that because of their determination, he would give everyone the first place – and Myrtle obnoxiously yells ‘He’s just saying that the losers don’t feel bad…’ SERIOUSLY, Myrtle?! Go die. :iconseethingplz: As the contest begins, which reminds me even MORE of that time when I went to Hawaii on holiday, Jumbaa and Pleakley have finished on the fusion chamber, but before they can test it, Jumbaa realises time is of the essence and must get it to Stitch as soon as possible. :ohnoes: Meanwhile… while what I saw of Aleka’s dance was nice, Myrtle’s…. well, considering the fact that these hulas are supposed to show the ALOHA spirit, Myrtle’s ‘dance’ about consumerism – she simply advertises her father’s shop – is probably the LEAST to do with family and aloha spirit at all… :hmm: She doesn’t even DANCE as such, she just.. waves her arms and shows off some cheap clothes – a costume she says is in SEVEN natural colours, and genuine faux pearls…. Er…

:iconobjectionplz::iconsaysplz:OBJECTION!!

Okay, brat, your dress was only in ONE colour – blue, and blue is not a natural colour for clothes…. And you cannot have GENUINE faux pearls – faux means fake…. :x Needless to say, I love the way Kumu just gives an uncomfortable embarrassed clap and says ‘Myrtle…. What can I say?’ Well said, Kumu, well said… :XD: Considering the fact that she only gets one or two claps, I can just imagine how cathartic it would be to see her in a tantrum that she loses…. Sadly, we don’t get to see her reaction to learning she loses – I can well imagine she loses, even though she annoyingly says ‘it’s in the bag’ as she leaves the stage. Yeah, it’s in the bag alright, a RUBBISH bag! :iconrimshotplz:

But, to the film’s credit, the hula contest isn’t the most important part of the story –it’s what Lilo’s hula dance represents. Speaking of which, Lilo is about to go up on stage, when Stitch goes in to wish her luck and…. well, remember that scene in the Tigger Movie when Tigger says ‘TTFE, tata FOREVER!’? Well, this scene is JUST as shocking as that one…. :ohnoes: THIS is where the film gets… really dark… And I have to give the film some credit for pushing the envelope on how dark the film can get. :clap: As Stitch is about to talk to Lilo, he starts having another glitch, and… it’s really sad how he says ‘oh no, badness coming on’… Daww, Stitch… :( NOW Lilo asks if Stitch is okay, but Stitch accidentally SCRATCHES her cheek! :jawdrop: Wow… Just like in his nightmare… Stitch runs away, and…. as Lilo’s scratch then disappears in the next shot ^^; (but to be fair, when Shenzi was scratched by Simba in The Lion King, that disappeared in the next shot too… ), she goes up on stage, but is much too concerned about Stitch to carry on. Realising that Stitch is more important than the hula contest, she apologises to her late mother, and rushes off to follow Stitch. Lilo, Nani, David, Jumbaa and Pleakley come together, and Jumbaa reveals that Stitch is malfunctioning… By the way, the music here is very sadly beautiful, and it reminds me almost of one of the more emotional Professor Layton tracks in parts…. :cries: As Stitch runs off to protect others from himself… :cries: …. Everyone goes looking for him. I like the way David says ‘you there Little Brother?’ when he looks for Stitch – possible reference to Mulan? :) Lilo and Nani find that Stitch has crossed out his goodness chart…. :( And all of a sudden, the spaceship starts up – as Stitch is heading towards a…. uncharted abandoned planet to hide on…. The way he waves to everyone as he flies away…. Wow… right in the heart… :cries: I mean it, this whole third act of the film has such a dark and sad feel to it…. It goes to show that even without a villain as such, the conflict of a film can still be well put together. :aww:

Taking the car to chase Stitch, our heroes zoom off to get to Stitch… By the way, the three bits of good humour in a row here – Pleakley saying ‘Yoo hoo!’ when he drives up with the car, Nani saying ‘Two eyes, my car – I’M driving!’ and the bit where Jumbaa wants a way to communicate with Stitch, and Pleakley is talking to his mom on the phone are pretty good…. And once again, it doesn’t interfere with the tone of the film – a film like this NEEDS something to lighten the mood and keep it from becoming TOO depressing… Yes, I said depressing – the emotions that this film gets out of me in the last bit are some of the strongest I’ve felt from ANY Disney film, and every time I watch this film, I have to give this film credit for continuing to get these emotions from me… :aww: Lilo calls Stitch, but Stitch has a rather… painful looking glitch, and the spaceship crashes on the mountain side. Luckily, Nani reveals that she was hiding the little hovercraft in the carboot all this time…

Lilo takes the hovercraft to the place where Stitch crashed, and comes across a…. badly hurt Stitch… oh no, this is where my emotions begin to reach their peak – as Lilo pulls Stitch up to the fusion chamber, and everyone else follows, with a nice bit with David helping Nani up. :aww: Time running out, Lilo pulls the switch just before Stitch’s energy runs out….. But…. Stitch reaches out to Lilo’s hand, says ‘Stitch sorry…’ and…. DIES….. :jawdrop: Oh…. Holy….. Oh no….. Okay, I will admit right now that this next scene is just… depressing….. as Jumbaa pulls Stitch from the machine to hug him…. And then Lilo holds Stitch and says ‘I kept saying I needed you, but you needed me more… you’re my Ohana Stitch, and I’ll always love you…’ The first time I saw this film – you have no idea how many tears fell….. :cries: And it is still a rather sad scene now…. But, do you remember the theme of Lilo’s hula being ‘love is more powerful than death’?

Well… this is where the good news comes in. :aww: It turns out that Lilo’s love for Stitch is what was needed to help his molecular stability be completed, and he comes back to life in Lilo’s arms…. ‘Stitch… not bad… Stitch FLUFFY!’ :giggle: Now, I can imagine that some people would be a little bit put off by this – as seen incorrectly, some people may complain that it’s a bad moral – but… don’t take it so LITERALLY, guys….. Disney has always had some scenes like this – including WAY back in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Pinocchio, and even in some recent films like The Black Cauldron, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled and Frozen, and in some other films like Pokemon: The First Movie and even The Spongebob Squarepants Movie – where these films are showing that love and compassion for others is more powerful than death, and the characters that are brought back to life by their love and happiness for their loved ones are used to show that message. People tend to take this a bit too literally and say that bad messages are being thrown out by this, but I say to them – don’t take it so literally. It’s not FLAT OUT STATING that if you love someone that any bad things that happened will be reversed – it’s NOT saying THAT, it’s just saying that love and compassion for others will always live on, even when that person is gone….. I know that this may sound a bit sappy and saccharine for some people reading this, but I just wanted to clear up something that a lot of people seem to take offence at… :hmm: Also, I tend to be a bit soft for saccharine moments… ^^; And on a side note, that fake out death thing here is one of the examples of how you do a fake out death CORRECTLY –  it’s something that COULD kill off a character, and the emotions are genuine rather than forced. I’m just saying this because I’ve noticed some people criticise this film for that, but let other Disney classics go free… :hmm:

And the film ends with a classic hula dance with the main characters….. once again, I’ll never get tired of these hula scenes – and plus, Jumba kind of suits of a hula suit… And I love the funny dance that Pleakley does. :D Nani gives David a kiss on the cheek, and Lilo and Stitch have a really sweet hug… :love: And Nani says ‘mom would be so proud of you’….. Daww… quite a sweet ending, I’ll say…. :love:

 

:iconeeveeextreme::iconsaysplz: Oh, I liked this one! I don't remember it very well, but I remember that I liked it.

:iconsquidwardfan::iconsaysplz: Ok... Lilo And Stich 2: Stich Has A Glitch is actually the best Disney sequel out there!!!!!! :DIt's way better than the crap that is is "Hunchback Of Noter-Dame 2", "The Lion King 1 1/2", and "Little Mermaid 2: Return To The Sea

:iconmovieman410::iconsaysplz: have u finished all of them, or are u just taking a break

anyway Lilo and Stitch 2 came out after my time so i never saw it, but I've heard it's one of the better ones

:icondinoboygreen::iconsaysplz: I thought it was a good film. Not the finest that Disney's made, but better than most sequels by far.

:iconvindurza::iconsaysplz: it's very cute, it's very sad, time line wise with the show and previous film it is hard to place, the animation is beautiful, and I'd say it's my favorite direct sequel or at least it ties with lion king 2 and I am not just saying that cause stitch is my favorite animated character

:iconneme567::iconsaysplz: I liked this sequel a lot. It has some funny moments (especially those scenes where Nani goes 'Fun, fun, FUN!' and Pleakley trying to make Nani jealous), and it worked even without a villain, besides Mertle, but eh, she doesn't count. 
Also, that sad scene in the movie where Stitch nearly lost to his glitch. Pleakley:"Are you jealous?"
Nani: "Hm, no." *walks away like nothing happened*

Oh Pleakley, you were one of those good crossdressing characters.

Poor Stitch, luckily Disney Magic helped him. (In case you don't know, it's a slang whenever there is a fake-out death in Disney, mostly main characters.)

:iconreshiramaster::iconsaysplz: It is really good! :la:I am impressed of how dramatic it gets Wow! 

:iconlightyearpig::iconsaysplz: I've seen it and man was it a tearjerker! It may be a Disney sequel, but at least it's better than :iconicouldkissmeplz:

:icondisneycow82::iconsaysplz: This film almost had me in :tears:

:iconxxamemetic-enginebxx::iconsaysplz: That death scene of Stitch was tragic.

:iconthomasgamecomicfan::iconsaysplz: This (next to The Rescuers Down Under) is the best Disney sequel.:D

 

Yes…..as you can tell, it is somewhat darker than the original film and…. to be honest, I guess that's why I like it so much. Now, in my opinion, some Disney sequels don't seem to have much plot (Little Mermaid 2, Belle’s Magical World, Lion King 1 ½ and Hunchback of Notre Dame 2 are OBVIOUS examples of this) but this one had a great plot. It continues with Lilo missing her parents (although her mother tends to be the one mentioned the most……… I will admit, it is a bit of a shame that they didn’t have much to do with Lilo’s late father) and with her and her sister now coping with their new extended family (Stitch, Peakley and Jumba). This sequel might not be quite as good as the original, but it still has a lot of going for it. As a direct-to-DVD project, you can't expect the same animation quality as you get from a theatrical release. :aww: It’s like with Bambi 2 and Lion King 1 ½, where it MORE than exceeds expectations, not just with the story, characters and music – but with the ANIMATION as well. :aww:

The scene at the end was very sad and depressing, true (in fact, it could actually be one of the saddest Disney moments), though it had a Beauty and Beast theme to it. Though this film is not without its flaws. As others have noted, it is too short, at just over an hour it could have done with being 10 minutes longer. The subplot about David and Nani's relationship problems could have also done with more development and while they were still entertaining, Jumbaa and Pleakley could have been used more. It’s similar to Genie, while still being entertaining, not getting that much screentime in the Aladdin sequels. However, the animation is just great, very fluid and colourful in the colours and backgrounds and the characters are well drawn. The soundtrack is also delightful, and made you want to sing along, the story is heart-warming and well-paced with good messaging and the script is both funny and touching. The characters are still likable, Lilo is well-meaning and sweet, and Stitch is lovable as always. The voice acting I have nothing against either, and I feel Dakota Fanning is a worthy replacement as Lilo.

My only MAJOR problem with the film is Myrtle Edmunds…. But seen as she’s on my least favourite characters list, that’s to be expected….. Any other problems I have with the film are nitpicks, to be honest. Even that part about me complaining about Lilo’s reaction to Stitch’s behaviour MAY have been me looking too deeply into it… ^^; It may not be as strong as the first Lilo and Stitch film, but it is still a very good film in my opinion. Going rather darker than your average DISNEY film (not just Disney sequels), but still maintaining some charm and likeability to it. Like many of my other favourite Disney sequels, it’s one that goes under the radar for some people – but I highly recommend it. It’s still my favourite of the Disney sequels (second place is Bambi 2, by the way :D ), and I’m happy to watch it again and again – despite the certain…. Dark aspects that this film has, it’s still a film that I willingly watch multiple times…. :aww:

 

So, as I said, I’ll be reviewing more Disney sequels in the future – as a matter of fact, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas will be one that I will be tackling in December, and some Disney sequels I would like to take on are Brother Bear 2, Return to Neverland, Winnie the Pooh’s Most Grand Adventure, Tarzan 2 and Atlantis 2, because I feel that those will be fun to review (for better or for worse). But for now, there are three other films I’d like to review before I get to my Horrendously Horrific Halloween of Horrendous Horror: The Third Nightmare in October. :aww:

 

So, seen as I saw it at the cinema very recently, my next review will be for the next film from the promising animation studio Laika….

 The Boxtrolls! :w00t:
