Please Note: The Following May Contain Spoilers (But I Tried Hard Not To)

I stumbled across this trailer in my random browsing through Netflix and thought why not, it looks kinda cute, may as well check it out. Basically, in case you don‚Äôt know, it‚Äôs the story of Mai who is a teenage girl living in a time where robots and A.I. are everywhere and basically run everything that is used on a daily basis. Like literally, even the instant noodle cups are little robots that cheer you on as you eat. It‚Äôs creepy and hilarious and slightly terrifying that society may actually come to this. But sorry, side-tracked, anyway her father left at a young age and her mother is so obsessed with everything robot related thing that basically ignores Mai and this results in her growing to be a moody, chip on the shoulder, lonely teenager. Sprinkle in some crazy antics, a secret robot that becomes a friend and an evil villain and it makes for a fun, though rather unoriginal, movie. Continue reading Movie Review: Next Gen (2018)
