Titan A.E.

Postby Nhoj Serob » Tue Sep 01, 2009 3:53 pm UTC

I just got done watching Titan A.E. last night for the first time since it came out, and it had a much greater impact on me.

Animation- 10
The correlation of 3d backrounds and hand-drawn (style, at least) animation was impressive. The use of free moving cameras is honestly the best I've ever seen in an animated film.

Visuals- 9.5
The visuals on this film were outstanding I consider my self to be quite knowledgeable about graphics (it's my future career) and this film blew my mind, even if it had just comeout yesterday, let alone being 9 years old. The use of ships was near photo-realistic, and the lack of cel-shading and lining made them look like animated Matte Paintings

Writing-9
I was watching through the opening credits when, Oh me yarm, Joss Whedon scrolled onto the screen. Even if I hadn't seen his name, there were defintly very Jossy parts to the film. I think I can defintly hear Jane or Mal uttering a few of the lines, and it got me to wondering if maybe this was where Firefly was first starting to hatch in his head.

Overall-9
This film is one of the most B.A. Films I've seen in a while, and the fact that it's a cartoon undeniably does not mean made for kids in this instance.

I'm sorry to break it to you but that was a spambot. I watched the film ages ago but I do recall enjoying it very much. I was unaware of the Whedon connection, interesting.

Your local library should have a copy of it as well.

Dun worry, I'm sure one of the mods'll be along to clean it up shortly ;)

Man, I haven't seen Titan A.E. in forever. Might have to dig me up a copy and watch it again. I loved the imagery of the shattered moon.

Yes, it was quite the decent film, it was.

I think the let down was that it was quite obvious that
Spoiler:
betrayal was to be had, and who it would be by.
But that didn't stop me enjoying it. The witty dialogue and Oh me yarm non-American human characters(!), even if minor ones, made it somewhat original.

I gave it 8*.

Loved it the first time due to the technology, but the second time on VHS it didn't have quite the same impact. Still, I was pretty young...

Now that I know good Sci-Fi when I see it I'll watch it again despite the above spoiler ruining some of the appeal. I can forgive this film for introducing Creed's "Higher" to the world.

Just saw this on cable again a few days ago. Remembered not really getting the plot that well but thinking "Man, this is so cool! More people should watch this" when I was a kid.

This movie must've been WAY ahead of the curve, because the first thing that came to mind when I saw it this time was
Spoiler:
"This is like a cross between Treasure Planet and Battlestar Galactica." Note that Titan A.E. came out at least two years before either of them.

I need to torrent this film and rewatch it. I saw it as a kid, and then later read the novelization when I was in bed sick for a day.

Got a free dvd copy of this movie when I purchased Xmen 2 at my local K-mart as part of a special that the store was having. Didn't watch the movie for a while, the synopsis didn't really sound to interesting, but when I did I loved it! I found the story so interesting and the visual were great and I still watch it every now and again.

A little bit too predictable and a few grossly oversimplied scenes (Oh me yarm a kid with a soccer ball on a colony! I have an immediate and complete change of heart from a cynic to an optimist!) but great animation, characters, and soundtrack.
The time and seasons go on, but all the rhymes and reasons are wrong

Treasure Planet<Titan A.E.

Treasure Planet was like Disney's 2-bit response to Titan A.E.

This movie was great. I've found myself renting it around once a year just because I start really wanting to see it.
