Kid Cudi, an American rapper, debuts his new film Entergalactic on Netflix. This film’s cast includes hit stars such as Timothee Chamalmet, Ty Dolla $ign, Vanessa Hudgens, Jaden Smith, Ketih David, Teyanna Taylor and Macaulay Culkin.
Entergalactic brings a mix of the award-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’sanimation style and a classic love story between two young adults.
This adult-animated romantic comedy follows Jabari (Kid Cudi) and his next-door neighbor, Meadow (Jessica Williams), in their journey of falling in love while pursuing their professional dreams.
Jabari relocated to Manhattan after being hired by Cosmic Comics to develop his original character, Mr. Rager, into a comic book series. Shortly after his arrival, he ran into his ex-girlfriend Carmen (Laura Harrier). Jabari and Carmen rekindled their romance for a night before he realized he wasn’t ready for a long-term relationship.
Later, after being awoken by loud music from his neighbor, he went next door to complain. Instead, Meadow caught his eye; from there it was love at first sight. Meadow was an artist like him; they shared the same aspirations and goals in life. Both have also worked hard to get their artwork noticed.
Together they took things slowly, oblivious to the fact that they were in love with each other. The magical graphics throughout the film enhance the presentation of their feelings for one another.
It wasn’t until their friends persuaded them that they realized they should give a romantic relationship a try.
Their relationship was going well until a misunderstanding occurred when Carmen sent him an explicit photo of her wearing his T-shirt. Meadow was the first to see the picture. Jabari isn’t great at expressing himself and did not have an explanation. Meadow didn’t want to give him the time of day, so the two parted ways.
This film, like many other romantic series, has a phase where the couple breaks up only to find their way back to each other.
The film takes the audience on a journey through love, lust and sadness. In contrast to most films, the characters exist as spiritual vibes rather than as individuals. The difference in this romantic comedy is that it incorporates dream-like elements to present the passion between the two.
The emotion, dream-like visuals and soundtrack are what is drawing an audience to this film. It depicts romance at its worst and best.
Although Kid Cudi is a rapper, his soundtrack in this film is not aggressive, like many may think; rather, it is the type of music that anyone can relate to. It gives a chill-soul-searching vibe.
This artistic film shows positivity, enhancing the colorful aspects through its characters and scenery. The story also celebrates African American culture. It was created not only to entertain people but to address issues like oppression and feminism.
Entergalactic is a wonderful work of art and an experience that is more than just a movie.
