Plot Outline:

Two squabbling brothers and their indifferent sister find themselves hurled into space after starting an old, mechanical game called Zathura. They realize the only way to get back home is to finish what they started, which may be easier said than done as danger awaits after every roll of the dice. -- Chris Kavan

Mostly obnoxious. 1. Hearing bratty brothers fight is not enjoyable escapism. 2. Dax Shepard does not make a convincing voice-of-reason. The bonus feautures are surprisingly good though.

I enjoyed this one.

If you liked Jumanji then you will probably find that you like this movie quite a bit. Both films share the same plot device; Children find a board game that transports them into the game.

The discovery by the children, that their house has been transported to a location in outer space, hovering above a ring of meteors that encircle a large planet, is jaw dropping. The effects are real enough to imply danger, but logic is not a function of children's games, so it does not matter that oxygen, gravity and warmth still exist in the house, even as it is blasted apart by va...
