Don Bluth has directed some of my favorite animated films from my childhood. "The Secret of N.I.M.H.", "An American Tail ", and "The Land Before Time" to name the big ones. That said, not all of them were slam dunk hits. What these "lesser" films lacked in compelling story, his fluid and stunning animation prowess was always on clear display.
2000's "Titan A.E." was the last of his major studio released features. Though somewhat buried by time and dismissed as a failure, I would strongly disagree. Time has been kind and it begs for rediscovery. During a time where George Lucas was pillaging the allure of his own Star Wars universe with the prequels, this film was a relative breath of scifi fresh air. With a motley assortment of varied characters and an interesting narrative, I've always loved this movie.
During the time of its release, there was only a compilation of songs "from and inspired by" available commercially. This was disappointing as the score by composer Graeme Revell was impressive and dynamic. I would have to wait 14 years when lalalandrecords would finally release a score only disc! Revell's score here is a standout in his career and a must own for his fans!
