Weekend Watch: 10 Movies you can Binge on This Weekend (Ep5)


By Rogers Wanambwa 

KIU, Main Campus – This weekend, let's enter the world of animations with this beautiful selection! 

1. DC League of Super-Pets 
Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime side by side in Metropolis. However, when Superman is kidnapped, Krypto must master his powers for rescue missions.

2. Minions: The Rise of Gru 
Weare taken back in time to the 1970s, where young Gru tries to join a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6 after they oust their leader, the legendary fighter Wild Knuckles. When the interview turns disastrous, Gru and his Minions go on the run with the Vicious 6 hot on their tails. Luckily, he finds an unlikely source for guidance - Wild Knuckles himself -- and soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

3. Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank 
What if your hero is someone you hate? A down-on-his-luck hound finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain's evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant trainer, the underdog must assume the role of fearsome samurai and team up with the felines to save the day. The only problem is -- they all hate dogs.

4. Raya and the Last Dragon 
Follow Raya, a warrior, as she sets out to track down Sisu, a dragon, who transferred all her powers into a magical gem now scattered all over the kingdom of Kumandra, dividing its people. We love that Awkwafina feature in this one. 

5. Encanto 
Have you ever felt like everyone around you is unique or has some exceptional talent, and you are the only ordinary pea in the pod? Well, that's Mirabel in Encanto. The movie reminds us that everyone has their purpose and is needed in the world. 

6. Luca
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but a deeply held secret threatens all the fun: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water's surface.

7. Abominable 
Join three friends who embark on a quest to reunite a yeti with his family as they race against a wealthy man and a zoologist who wants to capture and experiment on him. 

8. Onward
Set in a magical realm where technological advances have taken over, Ian and Barley, two elven brothers, set out on an epic adventure to resurrect their late father for a day. Will they succeed? Find out. 

9. The Croods: A New Age 
We find the Croods looking for a home, and here, they stumble into the walled land owned by the Betterman family. They are looked down upon by the technologically advanced Bettermans, but they help them during a crisis.

10. Lightyear
Legendary space ranger Buzz Lightyear embarks on an intergalactic adventure alongside ambitious recruits Izzy, Mo, Darby, and his robot companion, Sox. As this motley crew tackles their most challenging mission yet, they must learn to work together as a team to escape the evil Zurg and his loyal robot army that are never far behind.
