Llama Face

"Yay I'm a llama again!! Wait.."

- slugfaery

How To Train Your Dragon

​"How to train your dragon 1 and 2. I fell in love with Toothless and his sarcastic attitude on the first one."

- vishnubakthisaran

"How to Train Your Dragon 2 got me through a significant depression period. There were days that I would get off work and have it on repeat until bedtime."

- darkjedi39

"I think 3 should be included as well. I feel a lot of people bash on it, but it formed a solid end of the trilogy IMO."

Treasure Planet

​"Treasure Planet"

- DurzoStormblessed

"Had to scroll way too far for this one. Treasure Planet is one of the greatest movies and it's a shame it got buried by Disney (by releasing it very close to Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets - some say on purpose to prove a point to the movies directors)"

- Lloyd_AI

"Dude I literally just remembered this morning that this movie existed, and now I plan to watch it when I get off of work! I'm wayyyy too excited to watch it again lol."

- Mordecai_Wenderman

Definitely Not Happy, But Absolutely Worth It

"grave of the fireflies"

- nislija01

"Once, and only once."

- jim45804

"Those are the exact words I had in mind."

- jennybella

"This one. I was taught Japanese as my second language as a kid. The teachers put it on for us grade schoolers ( think 7-8 year olds). Messed me up and also gave me vast amounts of empathy at the same time. I don't like war, the people/civilians lose every time. I want to rewatch it but I just can't muster up the emotional strength."

- Slufflepuff

"Definitely agree that it’s a must watch but it’s also one of the few shows I’ve watch that would make this grown man cry every time."

-koueihou

"Grave of the Fireflies left me with a feeling of 'I'm not going to be okay for a while' and I feel like everyone should experience that at least once."

- obaterista93

A Goofy Movie

"​A Goofy Movie"

- hvan1989

"I would go to a Powerline concert no questions asked"

- ekm8642

"'You ever notice how we're all, just like, wearing gloves all the time?'"

- 1spicytunaroll

​Ohana Means Family

​"Lilo & Stitch. Ohana means family."

- GA Sam

"Lilo and Stitch is one of my all time favorite Disney movies, I absolutely agree with this"

- Arksurvivor120

"Seriously one of the movies of my childhood that has left a big, big impression on me. This scene where Nani sits with Lilo for the last time before they’re supposed to say their good byes, the authenticity of Nani singing a Hawaiian song softly. Or the way Lilo as an outsider copes with the loss of her parents. It’s all too real. It really broke my heart as a kid and does so even more now."

"It’s one of those movies that makes you truly understand complex emotions and how universal they are. It’s a wonderfully crafted movie. And hell, Stitch as cool af."

- beep-boop-im-a-robot

​Prince Of Egypt

​"Prince of Egypt"

- tossaway1959

"Yes! This movie was so good from the elite voice acting to Han Zimmer scoring it. Jeffery Katzenberg left Disney when they didn’t want to listen to him so he went and found Dreamworks and made the perfect film just to give Disney the middle finger"

- Wildcat_twister12

"Yes. So much yes to this. I get chills watching that movie."

- OK_Comparison_2451

"Scrolled so far down just to see this. I love many animated films, but a must-see is definitely this masterpiece regardless of your religious affiliation."

- KKAPetring

Make sure you don't miss out on any of these absolute masterpieces!

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
