The sequel to Jumanji that director Jon Favreau wanted to advertise with the tagline “I promise you it got nothing to do with Jumanji”.

Seriously, people lined up for miles to watch fucking Elf but not this one? It’s a funny ride for kids but if you are looking for something else than that you will be deeply disappointed. But you can come a long way on charm and a director who loves what he does.

Zathura is the closest thing we’ve come to a classic Spielberg “kids in suburbs”-Amblin movie since The Goonies. And The Goonies was a Spielberg “kids in suburbs”-Amblin movie!

And it got the best use ever for actor Kristen Stewart’s talents; she is frozen stiff for 90% of the movie.

PREVIOUS ON THE LIST: 62. Revenge of the Barbarians (1984)
