I went to see "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" the second day it came out,(and boy was I dissapointed) during the previews I saw a small teaser trailer for this film with Cale speaking while the Titan escapes the Earth's destruction. I expected that Titan A.E. would be an all-CG film ala "Antz" or "Toy Story" so I was curious. Later on I discovered that it would be a hand drawn animated film combined with CG animation and effects. I grew even more curious, but I was a serious anime fan, and after seeing great stuff like "Akira," "Bubblegum Crisis" and "Ghost in the Shell" I was convinced that I would never see anything the least bit close of quality come out of the U.S., I was in for a huge surprise.
Titan A.E.(in which I went to see the first day of it's release) turned out to be an awesome experience that was just as exciting as any anime I've seen. First of all the animation was simply incredible, the characters were the normal, well-drawn Don Bluth character designs which were good, but the real star was the CG effects and animation that blended with the hand-drawn animation even BETTER than the anime,"Blue Submarine No. 6" did. Plus, it was nothing like anything I've seen out of an American animated movie. No comic sidekicks(which is symbolized in one early scene in a comically violent scene) intense kick-ass music that perfectly complements the tense action and DOESN'T degenerate into a dumb musical. And it contains a number of awesome, visually spectacular action scenes. From the fast- paced chase scene involving spherical hydrogen trees to the final chase at the Ice Rings of Tegrin(Cale's chase with the Wake Angels was an awe-inspiring moment), Titan A.E.

Once again, I find myself defending the substance of a movie that everyone claims has none.

First off, let me say that this movie has a unique and complex plot. I really don't see how anyone can dislike Titan's storyline. The Titan is NOT like the Genesis device from the Wrath of Kahn (Titan builds a new planet, while Genesis provides instant terraforming of an existing world) and Cale has NOTHING in common with Luke Skywalker except blonde hair. I've seen movies that ended with the end of the world (End of Evangelion, for example), but this is the only one that begins with the end of the world and tells of what happens afterward. Simply put, this is a movie about finding hope after everything you know has been lost. Don Bluth tells this type of story well, and though Titan is certainly no Land Before Time, it does a damn fine job of pulling its characters' heartstrings. The first few minutes after the opening credits are VERY finely crafted, and they thoroughly convince us that humanity has become much like pre-WW2 Jews - i.e., having lost their homeland, everyone else steps all over them because they know they can get away with it. From there, the story becomes a sort of scavenger hunt, driven by Cale's desire to find his father, Korso's desire to get rich, Preed's desire to evade execution by the Drej, and Akima's desire to have a home where two inches of steel aren't the only thing separating you from space. The character interactions are as detailed and three-dimensional as the CGI, thanks in no small part to the infinite brilliance of Joss Whedon. There is a constant feeling of atmosphere; a perpetual, indescribable intensity that applies to everything from the crystal blue Drej ship interiors to the dusty and broken ruins of the Gau civilization.

Ok, so the film bombed, and killed ANY chance to see another spectacular film like this from Fox Studios ever again. I hope it will get much more attention on DVD then it did in theatres. Hopefully it will also have alot of fun and cool features for the fans.
This movie shows that Disney isn't the only ones with animation talent. But unlike Disney Fox isn't afraid to market to an older audience. The characters are all very cool, with an original plot to boot! Some neat plot twists along the way, and VERY VERY VERY cool animation mixed BEAUTIFULLY with the best special effects you'll ever see in an animated film. This movie wasn't predictable, and kept me guessin HOW it was gonna all end. The ending is a stretch of the imagination. I did notice someone mutter how "impossible" it was. But this is science fiction! who cares! My only problem is that it ended too quickly, I would've enjoyed it even more had it been 2 hrs. The voice talents are great, but at times unrecognizable (I didn't know John Leguizamo was in it till I saw the credits.) I also wanna mention the AWESOME music! Its all rock and you'll be moshing in your seat as it keeps the movie rolling along smoothly.
My favorite scene is when Matt Damons character is flying the ship along with the wake angels. That was pure eye candy, and I can't wait to see this movie again on video! I'll be first in line to get it on DVD! Way to go FOX! Too bad this movie will be the last of it's kind.

Although this movies street date is Nov. 7, I got it yesterday(Nov. 1)....let's just say a local store screwed up. Anyways, I saw this movie in the theatres and I have to say I was rather impressed. I've always been a fan of animated movies (Disney, WB, whatever)but this broke some new ground. This certainly isn't a Disney flick. Titan compares better to something like Heavy Metal 2000 (although not as gory and minus the nudity) and also borrows from Star Wars, Star Trek, and other sci-fi hits. It has some very mature themes and that's really why it got my attention. The video transfer of this disc is decent. It's not the best but it's certainly not the worst. Because this is a sci-fi movie and takes place in outer-space there is a lot of black on the screen at all times, leading to a few problems. In some scenes, the black is a little washed out looking. Also, the colors in some of the scenes that take place inside the ships seem too "bleed" into each other, but that's only in a couple, not all. Other than these few, minor, problems, it's a wonderfully bright and (for lack of a better word) pretty transfer. The audio is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 formats, and I was surprised to find that I didn't really have a preference between them. The Dolby track is very natural sounding, with good directional audio and panning and very nice creation of atmosphere - listenOther than that it's alright to the battle in the ice field (chapter 16) to see what I mean. Dialogue is nicely clear and there's good low frequency in the mix. The DTS track sounds a little more natural, with slightly greater clarity and a more unified soundfield from channel to channel... but I found bass to be somewhat lacking.Read more ›
