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.
Favreau takes the book and crafts into this ridiculous fun movie with so much heart. I felt like a 12 year old watching it.
Take another jumanji.
"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.
yeah yeah Jumanji blah blah
Noteworthy though for quite a nice bit of tension as the youngest kid ventures into the alien ship. And as well for Bella/Peeta incest jokes.
Muchos la ven como un Jumanji espacial. Incluida yo. Pero a la vez es la historia es muy diferente, y la disfruté.
Es entretenida y los efectos son muy buenos. Las actuaciones son buenas y, tiempo después, me vino a la mente que Kristen Stewart demostró finalmente que tenía emociones con este filme (el único, me atrevería a decir).
Book is better!!
Take another jumanji.
WAY BETTER than Jumanji!!
I think it was quite funny seeing director-actor Jon Favreau playing himself in "The Sopranos".
After coming into prominence in his screenplay for "Swingers" in 1996, Favreau got to sit on the director's chair in 2001's "Made" which featured his buddy Vince Vaughn.
Then came the 2003 festive film with Will Ferrell in "Elf" before taking on "Zathura" in 2005, a children-orientated adventure film about a mysterious board game, not surprisingly from the author of "Jumanji", Chris Van Allsburg.
I thought I had watched "Jumanji" in the past but aside from Robin Williams & CG-animated African elephants, it did not leave much of an impression in me.
However Favreau's take on the 2002 illustrated book received even much underwhelming response from…
I actually feel bad for giving it 3.5. The movie was nearly a four star at least but then I was getting kinda bored by the last act. Still this is streets ahead of it's elder brother Jumanji, and might even benefit from a rewatch at some stage.
The kids are pretty decent in this and I like that they curse a couple of times though, purely because they are not being neutered. Also Kristen Stewart is kinda decent in this!
Didn't like this at all.
I wasn't crazy about Jumanji and this is Jumanji in space.
The script was very weak-the relationship between the brothers is so forced-their dad and the whole divorce scenario was weak. It's a kid's film so that stuff needs to be toned down but it can still be done better than it was done here.
The effects were cool I'll give it that.
And Kristen Stewart in her underwear for almost the entire film was great.
Anything to do with Dax is probably going to suck.
Just a weak outing from everyone involved. Favreau didn't add anything to it-I felt the only positive thing to come out of this was he was able to work with effects that prepared him or rather made him qualified to handle Iron Man.
Overall very weak film. Good for kids I suppose. Kids usually enjoy crap.
Revisited with kids and had a good time.
