Movie of the Year: 2002
Lilo & Stitch (Bonus Episode)
The Taste Buds learn the meaning of family by watching Lilo & Stitch!
Lilo & Stitch is a beautiful, loving, caring look at what it means to be a family. Not the blood coursing through our veins, but the love that beats within our breast. Plus, it’s got one of the all time goofy little guys in the stitular Titch. Excuse me, the titular Stich. That kind of wacky mix up would be right up that adorable alien’s odd alley.
The Taste Buds explore the legacy of this film and what makes it stand out from other Disney also-rans. This movie isn’t the first one people think of when they bring up Disney, but does that mean it doesn’t have its fans? Also, we explore how 2002 the movie was in tone and message. What, if any, signs are there that this movie is coming out right after 9/11? And we ask whether or not this movie deserved to be included in our final 16-movie bracket!
All that and more on this week’s episode of Movie of the Year!
