9 Reasons Why 'Lilo & Stitch' Is The Best Disney Movie Of All Time

9 Reasons Why 'Lilo & Stitch' Is The Best Disney Movie Of All Time

It was more than just a kid's movie.

"Lilo & Stitch" is easily the best and most overlooked Disney movie of all time. Here are nine reasons why it rocks my socks:

1. Ohana.

One of the best lines in cinematic history.

2. The music.

Obviously, any movie that has Elvis music is a winner. Plus, it's set in Hawaii which gives us songs like Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride.

3. Realistic bodies.

This is one of the few animated movies that portrays female characters to be human. They aren't stick thin with super long legs and giant breasts. They are just average people.

Much thanks to Lilo and Nani for embodying beauty in ways unseen before.

Sidenote: They actually change clothes. A revolutionary concept for animated films.

4. Broken is okay.

Lilo and Nani don't have it easy. Their family is in no way normal or put-together, and they are perfectly okay with that. They want their family to stay exactly as it is. They see that it is broken, and they don't feel the need to "fix" it.

5. Aliens.

Who doesn't love a movie with aliens? It even starts out with a classic high-speed space chase!

6. Sisterly bond.

Lilo locks Nani out of the house in the first 20 minutes of the movie. They constantly yell and bicker, but they love each other more than anything. There isn't another relationship that portrays sisters better.

7. Lilo.

Lilo is my favorite Disney character of all time. She is sassy and dramatic, but also kind and caring. She dreams big and doesn't give up. Just the fact that she feeds peanut butter sandwiches to a fish in the ocean named Pudge makes her the greatest.

I want to be Lilo when I grow up.

8. This guy.

9. Redemption.

The movie is really a story of redemption. Stitch starts out as a horrible little monster, but because Lilo has patience with him, he learns to be kind and learns the meaning of family. It shows the power of grace, mercy, and love.

"Lilo & Stitch" has something for everyone. It makes you laugh, hits you in the feels, has great music and includes intergalactic enemies. It is the ultimate movie, and the best Disney has ever created.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

You're Doing Yourself An Injustice If You Don't Watch This Show

Designated Survivor is a must watch.


The Netflix show that was released in 2016 and deserves to be added to the queue of every American is Designated Survivor. In my opinion, this show has not gotten the attention that it deserves. The plot line of this Madam Secretary esque show is the aftermath of the attack on the State of the Union address in which every cabinet member is present, except for one: the designated survivor. In the event of a fatal attack, the designated survivor would be sworn into office as the acting president of the U.S. Therefore, this is a fairly important concept to grasp. The show does a great job of merging accurate information that may not be commonly held among the American people with drama that we love to see on screen.

Designated Survivor currently has three seasons on Netflix, all following the journey of Tom Kirkman, former Secretary of Urban Development. It sheds light on important issues and past events in American history and politics from an unbiased perspective, which is hard to come by in these politically charged current times. The presentation of facts in a subtle and unbiased way keeps viewers engaged and informed.

The newest season is particularly remarkable due to its inclusion of live footage from American people talking about REAL problems. Each episode, the White House is faced with addressing a new problem that is currently facing society and they use footage from real people to inform their decisions. The White House of the show, depicts and encourages a bipartisan approach to politics as both sides of the issue are addressed and reasonable compromises are reached.

Not only does this show entertain, but it also informs and sets an example of what politics could be like if we took a more bipartisan approach. I think this show is important for everyone to watch because it presents new perspectives without being overbearing and it has plenty of funny moments, romance, and drama!
