An Unofficial Official Ranking Of The Most Underrated Disney Movies

From "Finding Nemo" to "Ratatouille" and everything in between, Disney has made some pretty unforgettable films. Even before a new movie gets released, it will likely gain a following just for being part of the Disney franchise. But for some reason there are a few movies that always get left out of of the conversation when people talk about which ones are their favorites.

Since everyone has an underrated film that they will defend until the end of time, here's my list of which Disney films deserve 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

10. "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"

Quasimodo is one of the most lovable characters in Disney history and his story deserves to be heard! This movie teaches you to love everyone dispite their physical diffrences and will make you feel empowered enough to stand up for yourself.

9. "The Black Cauldron"

Even though this movie didn't do too well in the box office, I still think its pretty good. It's one of Disney's closest attempts to make a dark fantasy film. It's a little weird but still totally underrated.

8. "A Goofy Movie"

Only true Disney fans have seen this one. Goofy and his son Max come to a clash in this movie when Max tries to take control of his own life and get his dream girl. But, thats hard to do when your dad is as clumsy and embarrassing as Goofy. This relatable film will have you laughing from beginning to end.

7. "Atlantis: The Lost Empire"

After Milo Thatch, a cartographer for the Smithsonian Institute, stumbles upon a sacred book, he sets off to track his way to Atlantis. Along the way, Milo discovers things about himself and finds true love. This movie will inspire the adventurer in you and might even make you want to go out and find the lost city of Atlantis for yourself.

6. "The Great Mouse Detective"

If I'm being honest, this movie used to scare me as a kid. But, that still doesn't mean it wasn't good! It's a play on Sherlock Holmes except they're all mice. If you're looking for a good mystery movie but don't want to think too hard, this is the movie for you.

5. "Dinosaur"

In 2000, "Dinosaur" was the most expensive theatrical production of the year, and it shows in this often forgotten classic. The story follows an orphaned Iguanodon dinosaur named Aladar and the lemur family that takes her in. This was one of Disney's first major successes using CGI and it even has a ride at Disney World based on it.

4. "The Emperor's New Groove"

This has got to be one of the funniest Disney movies ever, yet it still carries a strong and important message. After being turned into a llama for most of the film, Kuzko learns that there's more to life than building the largest summer getaway home. And after you're done watching this, you can go and watch "Kronk's New Groove".

3. "Treasure Planet"

This movie is a science fiction version of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island and iskind of like an animated mix between "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Star Wars". If that's not enough reason to convince you to watch it, then I don't know what will.

2. "Tarzan"

This movie has one of the best soundtracks in any Disney film, and we have to take our hats off to Phil Collins for that. Beyond the good music, this movie is special because of its heartwarming characters that are sure to make you laugh. If you haven't seen "Tarzan" or it's just been awhile, make sure to watch it the next time you need a feel-good movie.

1. "Brother Bear"

"Brother Bear" always seems to be forgotten when it comes to the best Disney movies and in my opinion, it should be on the top of the list! The characters are relatable, the storyline is original, and it's filled with some pretty good jokes. And, it's underlying message to treat all things with respect and not to judge others is something we all can learn from. Phil Collins put together another amazing soundtrack for this film, which is the cherry on top of this fantastic underrated classic.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
