Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005) appreciation post

#1

Hello everyone,

I was bored today and was looking through IMDB profiles, stumbled upon Jon Favreau, looked into his directing credits, and boom, there I saw it, Zathura, a freaking space adventure.

I used to love this movie. I saw it when I was about 8 or 9 with my buddy, and we were obsessed with it for months. I bought the real life bored game and played that shit all the time hoping it would come to life.

But about the movie… I remember it being so suspenseful for my little 9 year old self. Oh my God the elevator shaft scene when Danny the little brother has to get the fucking game from the Zorgon ship. I was so scared of that scene when I was a kid. There was so much more about it I’d love to discuss with you all.

But also just the cast. Josh Hutcherson, Kristin Stewart, Dax Sheppard, Tim Robbins (even though it’s a small part). My movie loving self nowadays was shocked to realize all the familiar faces in that movie and was just happy to remember it existed.

I guess it wasn’t the most original concept in the world, but damn was it still a fun, suspenseful, imaginative movie. I gotta watch it again reeeeal soon.

I don’t get it. This is at least the second one of these we have noticed lately.

Yeah, is reddit trying to absorb Qt3 by osmosis?

I saw Zathura on an airplane without any audio. I think I remember liking it. That’s all I really have to say.

You were 8 or 9 years old in 2004? I think you are on the wrong forum, man. No offense.

(Though you probably don’t care since you are a bot.)
