Both are examples of 3D CG anime, but in comparitive terms Oblivion Island is by far and away the better movie.

Voices of a Distant Star

Voices of a Distant Star

Nagamine is a young high school student who lives a fairly typical teenage life: hanging out with friends, attending class, and falling in love with a wonderful boy. But when she enlists in the galactic army, who is desperate for candidates to fight an alien war, she finds herself drifting farther away from her first love, Noboru. In the depths of space, where a simple email takes eight years to be delivered, will their love truly flourish, or simply fade away?

Hoshi no Koe is more of a romance, but is miles above Planzet in every way. The animation is stunning, the plot is similar - people must sacrifice themselves in a way to pilot mecha to take down invaders - and overall it's just better. A different tone for sure, but try it out.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Evangelion is a much better take on the idea of invading monsters, sacrifices by the pilots that must protect the planet, etc. It's also not fully CG (in a good way) and is longer.

Gunbuster

Gunbuster

In the early 21st century, insectoid organisms are invading the galaxy, searching for new stars to house their young. Mankind's only defense lies with space cadets such as Takaya Noriko, daughter of a celebrated admiral killed in battle, and Amano Kazumi, the top of her class. With their skill and the power of the mecha known as GunBuster, the girls must help fight to protect the galaxy from total annihilation...

Gunbuster deals with a similar idea - people must battle invaders to protect humanity, there's plenty of sacrifice and hardship along the way. The tone isn't the same, but Gunbuster - with the exception of the first two stupidly ecchi episodes - does it right and is one of the most epic anime I've seen. Try it out.
