Titan: After EarthGENRE:
Scifi animation (cell/CGI), takes place in year 3028
Usually, I do not comment on movies that I have watched, but I must say that I am looking forward to the DVD release of Titan:After Earth. Okay, that's a while later on, but, I had to keep it on topic!
The movie, is easily the best traditional cell animation
(combined with CGI or otherwise) that I have ever seen, and easily beats the Dreamworks animation such as Prince of Egypt in my opinion.
If you have not seen the film in the theater, and you like scifi, you should go see it. It will please Star Wars fans - or even just plain scifi fans who at least somewhat likes animation. If you're not sure about animation but if you at least "liked" Toy Story or Toy Story 2 a little bit, then you'll have no problem with this movie. There is a HEAVY amount of CGI for the backgrounds. It is a visual feast for the eyes - lots of very 3-dimensional CGI special effects thrown in - especially the outer space sequences. Very scifi and lots of fun - the movie was even better than the trailer suggested it would be. Do not judge based on the trailer - the trailer made it sound somewhat initially corny, but the movie was less corny than I expected! The resolution of the film was incredible, even on common multiplex quality prints - for the first time in a few months, I never got distracted by film defects a single time. With the way things are going at Fox for DVD transfers of their *recent* films, I expect Fox should be able to do a 5-star reference quality DVD transfer of this film - virtually guaranteed in the Tarzan/A Bug's Life/Prince Of Egypt league.
I believe Fox upped the ante - A new new benchmark for other studios to beat for cell animation!WARNING: Even though this is animation, this movie is PG rated for violence, brief language, mild sensuality. This isn't a little kid's cartoon.
