I really liked this movie as a kid, which was likely due to the fact that it was primarily set in space. The enigmatic nature of space and its vastness always drew me in. Zathura follows two young brothers who do not get along too well. They end up playing a board game and somehow end up in space… including their entire house which is odd since nobody on Earth seemed to notice their disappearance. They encounter some crazy things in space, including some sort of aliens. Part of the movie teaches a lesson to younger viewers as it develops the characters of the two young boys, Walter and Danny. As an adult, I’m not sure that anyone would really enjoy this movie, but it’s a good watch for kids.
Rating: 3/5

No way! Epic movie, but Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark) AND Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan) in the SAME movie!?! #itsallconnected

Ha,ha,ha. Once again i'm completely fooled by the cover of this movie. I don't often purchase sci-fi or fantasy movies if there's kids on the cover. However, i did read about the sound being very good and i had to find out for myself. WOW!!! I would consider this movie "sound freak" approved. And what better way to see and hear this film than on your HOMETHEATER!!!!! There were quite a few scens that have very good sound and had all my speakers, especiall my subwoofers, catching me way off guard with explosions. Every once in a while i'll luck out and purchase something that's quite surprising, and this movie is now in my collection. It deserves 4 and half stars. For an unusaul board game, a house that space travels, lizard creatures, a robot, and very cool audio effects. Beef tereyaki, pork fried rice, 4 steamed dumplings with soy sauce, and chinese tea.

When I first saw the trailer for this I was like wow Jumanji in space, looks boring. Well I was pleasantly surprised, as it turned out to be a pretty good movie. I think the whole family could easily enjoy this. I would recommend this for a family movie night.
