Battle for Terra

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Battle For Terra.”

One of the nice things about being a basically hypercritical and negative individual like myself is that when your opinions turn out to be wrong, you’re almost invariably pleasantly surprised. “Well, that’s it: we’re all gonna’ die,” I say, and it’s kind of hard not to be happy when you’re proved to be wrong. I feel sad for all the stupid hippies of the world, who constantly aspire to great and glorious things, only to have ugly stupid reality and traffic jams and famines and coffee stains bring them down.

THINGS THAT ALMOST INTEREST US: "The Battle for Terra"

I saw this trailer today for the first time over on the Bigdumbobject site.

While it looks moderately eye-popping, and it's interesting to see Lionsgate do a cartoon, and an SF cartoon at that...a lot about this trailer made my eyes roll.

I've not seen the movie, but let's make some predictions, shall we?:

1) This is an ecological fable.
2) The aliens are a politically correct hybridization of American Indians and Hippies, which is the kind of thing hippies will love and Indians will hate for good reason.
