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.
I think Jumanji is the better film of this genre, but it's nice to see Kristen Stewart showing some emotion. On another note, why hasn't there been a porno made involving a magical board game like this?
Bored enough to watch a movie for young persons, the quality of the picture is not so good, its got an orange/yellow tone in each shot and I initially thought it was a movie from the 80's but its actually shot 2005.
The story itself is a bit rough and unpolished but still leaves a warm feeling inside.
Not nearly as good as Jumanji, but still some decent entertainment.
It's not a scifi rip off of Jumanji.
It's a Twilight/Hunger-Games rip off of Muppet Babies.
Doesn't have the same feeling of excitement and adventure that Jumanji has, but it is a pretty fun ride nonetheless. The script isn't the best, and the acting is fine, but this still manages to work on a certain level.
A strange beast. I liked the brother dynamic with a twist very much
Wow. She really could act.
Jumanji: A Space Adventure.
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.
