    Zathura: A Space Adventure

    ZATHURA: A SPACE ADVENTURE (2005)
    "Two young brothers are drawn into an intergalactic adventure when their house is hurled through the depths of space by the magical board game they are playing."

    This is basically Jumanji (1995) in space without the animals, notioned jungle aesthetics, or Robin Williams. Ironically, director Jon Favreau discouraged the idea that this film is directly connected to Jumanji, yet the studio behind both films claim they take place in the same fictional universe and the…

    JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL (2019)
    "The gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to rescue one of their own, the players will have to brave parts unknown from arid deserts to snowy mountains, to escape the world's most dangerous game."

I rewatched the timeless classic Universal Dracula (1931) and Francis Ford Coppola's romantic version, Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), then came upon my VHS copy of Dracula: The Dark Prince. It's funny because I own this film on videotape but have never actually sat down to watch the full thing.…

    WENDIGO (2001)
    "Kim, George and their 8-year-old son, Miles, are city dwellers stealing a weekend away at a friend's country farmhouse. But a fluke accident sets off a chain of events that alters their lives forever and conjures up the ferocious spirit of the Wendigo."

    As a kid, I remember this used to play on Starz and Encore all the time before they merged, expanding Starz to various channels on t.v.! I used to find this movie late night on…
