Zathura (2005)

Director:

Jon Favreau

Starring:

Josh Hutcherson

Jonah Bobo

Dax Shepard

Plot:

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.

Review:

Loved Jumanji growing up and I’ve wanted to see this for a while. My husband put it in to entertain our daughter and I ended up watching.

At first I had no idea what was playing and couldn’t understand why my husband would be watching something with such bratty children. They were horrible and he just looked at me and said, “This is our future.” Not at all disconcerting.

The movie was fun and basically a space version of Jumanji, but I’m totally fine with that.

I loved that they made fun of the sister for her reaction to a certain thing.

I really liked the movie and it will probably hold a special place in my heart because it’s the first movie we’ve sat through as a family.

4.5/5

Side note: I want that house

  1. Zathura is lots of fun for the whole family! The sibling dialogue will hit home for anyone who grew up with a brother, and the story doesn’t have to make sense for it to be enjoyable. Overall this is a pretty good movie
