Last night was the premiere of Battle for Terra at SM North Edsa. I’d like to thank Jonel for giving me his tickets! It was the 1st time for me to watch a movie in full 3D! Wohoo great job SM Cinemas!
Now I know the feeling of watching a movie that makes you feel like you’re not watching a movie per se. Watching a movie in 3D, IMHO draws you closer to the film. To add to that, the movie had amazingly clear images & cool surround sound! That made the experience even more awesome!
Battle for Terra was a 2007 animated film that won the Grand Prize for best animated feature at the 2008 Ottawa International Animation Festival. It was originally shown as 2D but was rendered in full digital 3D. The movie is currently and exclusively shown at all SM Digital theater branches nationwide (regular showing will begin on October 21, 2009).

The story had a different twist into the human-alien movie. This time it is the humans who invaded a peaceful alien planet (Terra). Will an unlikely friendship between a human and an alien help the 2 races stop a war & help them coexist before it is too late?
I really liked how they turned the tables & gave us a different perspective on aliens experiencing invasion. I liked how the twist is the aliens are the ones being invaded; truly unique and i find that makes the movie more interesting. I will not share the story, but I suggest you watch it. Winning the best animation award isn’t for nothing right?
