Despite being made by Don Bluth and having references of the first two STAR WARS films, TITAN A.E. was an amazing sci-fi movie that blends traditional 2D and computer 3D animation. I liked the stuff around the movie such as the action, the voice acting of Matt Damon, Drew Barrymore and Nathan Lane as well as three impressive scenes including the opening where Earth gets destroyed, the Wake Angels and the chase on the Ice Rings of Tilgrin. 

I always loved TITAN A.E. but I think that Disney's similar movie TREASURE PLANET (click here) was way better than the first because it was set in the alternate universe and has more of a story-line.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
