Titan AE is one of the greatest animated box office FLOPS of all time. Like it literally hurts to think about how much it failed but did it deserve all that hate?

    • i...LOVED Titan A.E, it is a real shame it did not do well but this vid explains a lot of why it did. I really enjoyed a sci-fi adventure that didn't put humans as a dominant species, as a group struggling to survive and all these other super-weird and fun alien designs, it was great!

  • When I saw this movie as a kid, not in theaters but on DVD a bit later on, I thought it was very awesome. Here's why. I wasn't smart enough yet to get into thinking about a developed backstory for the bad guys, and liked the idea of a cool looking enemy that is just trying to stop you because they're bad. In my mind, that was enough. I still think it kinda can be enough. Like, if in this case, Humanity is so outclassed by the Drej that we never stand any chance against them, we can never learn their motivations, never have time to think of a way to defeat them (before Earth is destroyed), it puts Humanity on the back foot, forces them into a defensive war, where they have to put all their effort into finding some way to survive. I've been a sci fi fan all my life, and while this movie's bad guys, and all the human characters, were kinda just there to fill roles, everything else was pure gold to my creative mind. The aliens. Especially Stith, she was my favorite character. The space stations, and the environments inside them, the way they contrasted a high tech, thousand years in the future space station, cobbled together from old spaceships, with a dirty, run down slum, a ghetto almost, I thought that was a really cool idea. It set their state of technology at a level that makes today look medieval. (Our most advanced technology, a space station, is their cheap housing. The medieval period's best construction, stone buildings, is today's cheap housing.) The locations were all very cool and distinctive, and if they wanted to capture Star Wars, I think they did in that regard. Star Wars works because most of the planets are incredibly alien, and so are the ones in Titan AE. Apart from the space stations, the standout locations are the planet with the Hydrogen trees and those batty aliens that were pretty cool, the nebula with all those strange columns of gas and stuff, and the ice crystal cluster where the Titan was hidden. And the spaceships. I love, present-tense, the spaceships. After I saw this movie, I immediately went and built a Lego model of the main spaceship, because I thought it looked really cool. I still have that model, and it's still really cool. A lot of other models I built took inspiration from the other ships in this movie. For comparison, when I saw Lilo & Stitch, which was a lot more interesting on the level of characters and comedy, I thought the spaceships all looked kinda dumb and boring. PS, here's a picture of that Lego model, for anyone interested. www.deviantart.com/taggerung1/art/ISS-Stormhawk-119116571 The design is mostly inspired by the ship from Titan A.E., with a little bit of Starship Troopers thrown in, plus a dash of "hm, I've got these pieces" for flavour. :P

  • I love this movie

  • While I do like the movie, it's not my favorite. And yes....the evil blue space batteries could have been a whole lot better. XD Heck, my direction would have been something like...humanity wanted to build a second earth when they didn't need to. Some sort of hubris-driven reason. And the Angri Lightning Bois decided that no, they couldn't let this happen. Humans were too proud, and this made them dangerous. So now they must be taught humility. And Earth could get destroyed either by an intentional attack, or more slowly over time as they tried to find the machinery to make this second earth, destroying everything in their path in an attempt to wipe all this forbidden knowledge out. There, a reason they actually hate humans. Also could be why everyone else looks down on them; they were the prideful, foolish ones and deserve to live as worthless wanderers. Also DON'T NAME IT NEW EARTH OH MY GOSH NO THERE'S SO MANY OTHER NAMES!! Gaia. Eden. Name it after an ancient deity of Earth, or some mythical hero who learned humility in honor of the lesson learned. NOT NEW EARTH.

  • This was the first movie I called my favorite movie. It was atmospheric and brooding, I loved that. I was 8 years old and the drege scared me and I left the theater. Later on VHS I watched it a lot. I watched it two nights ago with a friend and took notice of the mechanical details in the backgrounds. The sound design sold it for me as well, really punchy and atmospheric

  • Idk i find it a lot more terrifying that an alien species finds Earth and is like "Oh shit they might pass us" *nuke* rather than a long prolonged war that "ends" with Earth's destruction

  • Ive always had a fondness for this movie. Sure, ive seen better (hell, ive written better stories myself humbleflex.png), but the concepts it attempts to wrestle with still resonate with me, specifically the idea of humanity being reduced to a race of drifters floating around on what amount to giant scrapyards in space. Thats always been really cool to me.

  • I feel this movie would have worked better as a show with more time to explore the bold concepts it introduced and more time to actually develop its characters.

  • The Dredge actually feared the humans and tried to eliminate them because they knew that the Titan-Project could destroy them by using the Dedge race as an energy source. That was their reason for attacking the humans in the first place, not just ebcause they were evil and power hungry. The movies fault is that it did nit establish that pointm only inferred it. It was only made clear in the supplementary comics alongside the movie, so it's easy to not know that aspect Yep, bad marketing/plot-establishment on the part of the filmmakers. Just wanted to drop this here for completions sake

  • I honestly quite liked it back then, today I do see how horrible the CGI looks - even for the time it was already kinda iffy(but I still love the ice crystals scene - that one is just great)… I’ll still give it a rewatch from time to time, maybe hoping for somebody one day attempting a remake?

  • Yeah, I saw this movie first time few weeks ago, and I loved the start of the movie, animation and I liked Korso, Cale, Akima and Preed, but yeah energy aliens felt wasted. I would still recommend it, but the latter part of the movie needs a rewrite to fit the start. (Also, finnish dub for some reason has nerd voiced by the same woman who voices Izma in emperor's new groove :D)

  • I just watched this for the first time and I liked it. I appreciate the attempt behind it and there is really no stupidity in the movie. It's quite a strong story with clear stakes, lots of action and quite likeable characters. Imo, this movie is average at worst but pretty damn solid at best.

  • Firefly... Titan A.E.... Treasure Planet... Atlantis: The Lost Empire... These products seem to have a habit of being cool steampunk space adventures that completely bombed during their releases but gained a cult following over the years. And I know Atlantis isn't in futuristic space but it kinda has the steampunk aesthetic and they go into "another world", so it kinda counts.

  • I enjoyed enough aspects of this movie even though the effects have not aged well at all. I remember in this time animation for young adults and up was practically unheard of, and could have been better. If nothing else it introduced me to Powerman 5000 and the one good song by Electrasy Also: I met one of the guys who worked with the lighting for this movie. They really struggled with the lighting for places like the Asteroid Space Station and didn't settle on some of their choices until late development

  • Y'know I saw Titan A.E. as a kid with my uncle and I think it had quite an influence on me. It doesn't talk down to you as a film, and as I got older I found myself thinking about it from time to time. I think it made me look at animation as a medium that can convey things serious as well as playful, but considering I'm relatively young I pretty much grew up with animation, so I never knew a set 'standard' that it had to be 'for kids', sure all the programming I saw was for kids but I just figured it was because it was the age relevant animation, and Titan A.E. did a lot to prove that, that and Akira. Just interesting is all.

  • Haven't seen it but wouldn't surprise me if I end up liking it. I like the animation. To be honest, the early 20's and the late 19's had most of the better show's for animation mainly for kids. Not that we have some good shows today. But there were a lot more better show's for animation for kids during the earlier year's if you put all the year's together for kid animated series and movie's.

  • Even if I really enjoy TA.E. I must disagree on this 12:42 THAT scene doesn't look from a 2000 game cutscene, that scene looks like it's from MYST....from 1993!!! And for a movie? I don't think 2000 was too early for cgi, the Fellowship Of The Ring was knocking at the door(2001), hell! If you see Star Trek 2 when they explain the Genesis project it looks soooo much better and it was 1982 (litterally super early Pixar) and it was supposed to be cgi in the movie(it was a computer simulation)...so yeah that scene is pretty bad ;)

  • I had both Titan AE and Treasure Planet as a child, and frequently forgot which one was which. If I popped in Titan expecting Treasure, I was disappointed. But accidentally grabbing Treasure when I was looking for Titan was a pleasure. I think that says it enough. Titan AE was... alright. But Treasure Planet had a lot of the things that were missing- the better antagonist who was more expressive, the better characters in general, the more cohesive plot, and the better visuals. While I wouldn't exactly mind seeing Titan AE again... eh, there are many many more movies I'd rather spend that 90 minutes with.

  • The plot was indeed one thing I noticed when I came back to rewatch it years later. It wasn't a bad plot, per se, but it just all felt very rushed. Like they just had a checklist of plot points to hit, and the whole movie was just them sprinting to and from each one.
