The 10 Most Underrated Disney Movies You Need To Watch Right Now

Disney has released hundreds of movies over the years. You’ve got your classic classics, like “Cinderella” and “The Lion King.” You’ve got your more recent classics, like “Frozen” and “Moana.” However, with all the movies Disney has released over the years, there are bound to be some that are underappreciated.

Here are the top 10 most underrated Disney movies:

1. “Hercules”

I don’t care what anyone says, in my mind, “Hercules” will always be the most underrated/underappreciated Disney movie. It’s got a great villain, great sidekicks, some of the best songs Disney has ever come up with, a wonderful love story, and it teaches a great moral lesson as well. What more could you want?

2. “Atlantis: The Lost Empire”

I’m often surprised by how many people don’t remember this is a Disney movie, and that’s a shame, because it’s one of the more interesting movies Disney has come out with. It’s chock-full of history, it’s got some amazing characters, the animation is brilliant and Kida is fabulous – and should also be a Disney princess, but I digress.

3. “The Black Cauldron”

I’ll be honest, sometimes I forget this is a Disney movie. It’s a lot darker and not as funny as most of Disney’s movies, but being as Disney so rarely dives into fantasy, this movie is pretty great, and worth more than a few rewatches.

4. “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”

I have so many feelings about this movie. It’s so good, and it’s so often overlooked by everyone, although I’m not really sure why. The animation is stunning, the songs are great, the villain is great (when I say great, I mean horrible and terrifying, but you know, same thing.) Honestly, this movie deserves more credit.

5. “The Emperor’s New Groove”

I mean, the main character turns into a llama and learns to be a better human. What better movie premise could you ask for in life? (Also, find me one person who does not say “Pull the lever Kronk!” on the daily. I dare you, it’s impossible.)

6. “The Fox and the Hound”

I still sob like a baby every time I see this movie. The ending is so dramatic and bittersweet, and it wasn’t until I was older than I realized how poignant it really is, but still. Props to Disney for creating a movie that got me thinking about prejudice and hatred at such a young age.

7. “The Sword in the Stone”

Once upon a time, this was one of my favorite movies. Archimedes was my favorite character – he was a sassy owl. There really wasn’t much more a girl could ask for – and the story itself kept me fascinated with the Arthurian lure for years. If you haven’t watched “The Sword in the Stone” in a while, do yourself a favor and pick this up.

8. “A Goofy Movie”

Find me a more touching movie about a parent/child relationship, I dare you.

9. “Lilo & Stitch”

There are some people who will argue and say that this movie is actually pretty well known and therefore doesn’t belong on this list, but I would have to disagree. This movie does not get the credit it deserves, and the characters do not get the praise they should for teaching the lessons they do and showing that family can come in so many different shapes and sizes.

10. “Robin Hood”

I feel like this movie has to be on the list. I know it gets a lot of flack for reusing animation, but it has a wonderful soundtrack, and a cast of characters that are nothing short of hilarious. I will forever think this movie does not get the credit it deserves.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
