Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Since we had a lecture on animations a couple of weeks ago. I want to introduce an animation that I enojoyed. For people who is familiar with videogames, most people would know Final Fantasy. It is a series of games produced by Square Soft and is very successful.
Many people who watched the film tend to say the film has got nothing to do with the game. But if you are familiar with Final Fantasy games, you would notice that every game is different(except FFX2), different characters, different storyline. They just have the same title (some sort of marketing strategy). But they all have the same theme in common, which is love, friendship and sacrifice. If you see it this way you'll find that Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within has a lot to do with the game. Although many people said the movie was boring but I still liked it.

Well here is a synopsis of the movie, taken from ANIDB :
In the year 2065, the next great assault against an invading race of phantom-like aliens is about to be launched. Dr. Aki Ross, a brilliant young scientist, races to find the invaders` secrets, not only to save the planet, but herself as well after her body is infected by alien particles. She teams up with the prestigious Deep Eyes military squadron, led by her old friend Grey Edwards. But as Aki, her mentor Dr. Sid, and Grey work toward a peaceful end, the scheming General Hein devises a plot to eradicate the aliens in one swift, destructive blow...even if it destroys the Earth right along with them.
