Titan A.E. 2000

The last time I remember watching Titan A E my daughter was about 4 years old when it just came out and she couldn't really read yet. So, tonight she found it on Netflix and wanted to stream it so the family all enjoyed it once again. Matt Damon and Drew Barrymore are two of the main voices in this full length cartoon. It was a breakthrough kind of film which combined elements of previous full length cartoons combined with computer graphics. Though "Toy Story" had come out already from Pixar, this was a type of combination of Computer Graphics with standard cartooning combined. I greatly enjoyed the story and the characters and the beautiful scenery and scenes throughout. If you are a Science fiction buff you also might like this one if you haven't seen it already. To set the stage, Earth is blown up and a few humans survive and the rest of the story is what becomes of them. So, it starts out sad and gets better from there.
