Everyone loves a good sci-fi flick; you know, a movie that takes place either in outer space or on a planet or world other than Earth, or one that features aliens or creatures from other planets. These films are stretch our imaginations any which way – taking us to distant places that may or may not actually exist. Here we list KW’s Top 5 Out Of This World Animated Films of all time!


(Oh, and be sure to discuss this topic on our boards by clicking here!)


Newest Out of this World Animated Film: Battle For Terra!

Battle For Terra

This is a new animated sci-fi coming out on DVD September 22, 2009. It's both visually stunning and action-packed and guaranteed to be a real crowd pleaser, no matter how old you are! Basically, the peaceful inhabitants of the beautiful planet Terra come under attack from the last surviving members of humanity adrift in an aging spaceship. This sets the stage for an all-out war between the two species for control of the planet. But will an unlikely friendship between a rebellious young Terrian and an injured human pilot somehow convince their leaders that war is not the answer?


Check it out our review of Battle For Terra and an exclusive clip – it may just appear officially on this Top 5 list in the very near future!


No. 5: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

ET

OK, so it’s not exactly “animated” but there sure was some creativity behind bringing E.T. – that lovable little extra-terrestrial – to the big screen! The 1982 hit about a stranded alien and his loving relationship with a fatherless boy always manages to strike a chord with audiences of any age. The special effects almost look a bit quaint now with all the computer advancements that have occurred since, but they also have more heart behind them than a lot of what we see today.

No 4: Monsters Vs. Aliens

Monsters Vs. Aliens

The two oldest and best known characters in science-fiction are monsters and aliens. In this case, it’s actually Monsters Vs. Aliens. This movie even throws in some giant robots for fun. This animated film, probably one of DreamWorks’ best, has great characters and entertains kids of all ages, adults included.

No. 3: Lilo & Stitch

Lilo & Stitch

Unlike some other Disney films, Lilo & Stitch was developed from scratch. It’s a heartwarming-yet-action-packed story about what it means to be a family. We love this move because the moral behind the animation is that with enough love, patience and maybe a chainsaw anybody can change, even little blue evil alien experiments. See the film and you’ll understand!

No. 2: The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant isn’t just a great sci-fi/animated film, it’s one of the best movies out there about human intolerance to outsiders and the fear that causes so much violence. It’s an emotional film about one boy’s determination to help a friend and the humanity that comes from something that’s not human or biological. This story, about coming of age, is has outstanding 2-D animation and is about as good a film about an alien robot as it gets.


No. 1: Wall-E

Wall-E

Wall-E is considered by many to be one of the best animated films of all-time. Not only a wonderful tale about of newfound love and opposites attracting, it’s also a great sci-fi story with messages about environmental destruction and the human influence combined with robot/human relations – all classic sci-fi themes. In the first half of the movie we get to experience Wall-E’s daily grind as a refuse collector and organizer left behind on the devastated planet Earth. Humans have decimated the planet’s resources and livability, fleeing the trashed planet for a temporary colony in space while robots like Wall-E clean up their mess. In the second half we learn more about the humans and how little they understand about what they did.

    I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

    I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
