Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #61: Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)
61. Zathura – A Space Adventure [DVD] (2005)
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.
