Zathura: A Space Adventure
Adventure Is Waiting.
Two squabbling brothers are propelled into deepest, darkest space while playing a mysterious game they discovered in the basement of their old house. On their fantastic journey, they are joined by a stranded astronaut and must survive several outer space challenges. Unless they finish the game and reach the planet Zathura, they could be trapped in outer space forever.
It's Jumanji in space! Weeeeee!
What a cute little flick, all entertaining and fun.
A good film to end this challenge with.
Zathura has been easily compared to the 1995 fantasy comedy, Jumanji, and it’s no secret why. Both films share similar plotlines. However, this film has more of a science fiction edge to the story that makes it a bit different. If you forget the similarities between the films, this is a fun, entertaining picture that is worth seeing because there are several worthwhile moments due to a well crafted script, good cast and good direction from director Jon Favreau. The film has good effects, and plenty of thrills to really make it a highly entertaining picture from start to finish. The film isn’t perfect, but for the most part, it’s a worthwhile affair that is sure to appeal to genre…
Take another jumanji.
Favreau takes the book and crafts into this ridiculous fun movie with so much heart. I felt like a 12 year old watching it.
its like jumanji but worse
"Meteorites. Take evasive action."
This movie transports me back to my childhood. Zathura is great space adventure and I enjoyed from beginning to end, it's entertaining and funny. I really liked Jumanji when I was a kid, fantasy adventure movie about a supernatural board game. This one is next level. Jumanji in space with a lot of cool stuff. The kid actors go great together, and Tim Robbins was also good in a very small part. Special effects are also impressive.
Zathura as a family movie it is truly excellent, and one of best family movies for sure.
I'm sorry but I just really didn't like this movie and this is meant to be some kind of sequel to that classic masterpiece known as Jumanji.
Incest jokes aside... Film's pretty great.
Entertaining and good effects.
I carry around the spleen
Jumanji in space.
Meh. It was supposed to be some sort of sequel to Jumanji. But the bad acting kinda threw me off for most parts of the movie. The idea was pretty nice but according to my opinion they didn't bring it to justice.
A great child's sci - fi filled with whimsy.
How did I miss this for ten years?!
Loved it... Great family fun.
Jumanji in space is better than Jumanji, probably because outer space is cooler than a bunch of monkeys and Robin Williams. Baby Peeta was a fine actor even as a little kid and Bella was much more believable as a normal teenage girl in this than in Twilight.
