    Kid Cudi's "Entergalactic" Has Had Me In A Chokehold Since Its Release, And I Never Knew An Animated Movie Could Make Me Feel Like This

    Kid Cudi's first animated special has people falling in love all over again.

    I don't know why I always act surprised when an animated movie makes me emotional, like Coco, Pokemon: The First Movie, and A Silent Voice didn't emotionally wreck me. But that's exactly how I felt after watching Entergalactic.

    I'd describe Entergalactic as the the creative love-child of musician Kid Cudi, because not only did he create and star in the rom-com, but the film also serves as the visuals for his album of the same name.

    Kid Cudi managed to perfectly weave together a realistic story of how a chance encounter with a stranger can blossom into a sublime journey of unexpected bliss.

    And I'd truly be doing the film a disservice if I didn't mention the soundtrack. Kid Cudi knew which songs would evoke the strongest emotions during just the right scenes.

    I typically like my rom-coms with a side order of cheese, but this project had me smiling at the screen without the added fluff. It was truly refreshing, which is probably why I watched it more than once.

    But I wasn't the only one who couldn't get enough of Entergalactic. Here's what other people were saying about it on Twitter:

    #Entergalactic is such a simple love story movie but yet so good. I have so much respect for this style of animation and they knocked it off the park. The soundtrack and editing is great so much attention to the small details 👌.
