Heck yeah, that's a pretty fast turnaround. Loved the movie, sad it didn't do better at the Box Office, but I guess there is no accounting for taste (the fact that Chicken Little creamed this is still unfathomable)...

The fact it looked too similar to Jumanji put me off from seeing it in theatres. maybe i'll rent it.

I'll probably be picking this one up. It looks like it has the potential for a really kickass surround track.

Jumanji is far better. The storylines are almost the same. But Jumanji benefits tremendously from Robin Williams. His character's story with getting caught in the game is also far better than what's in Zathura.

What's good about Zathura are the effects, obviously - Jumanji may have been groundbreaking, but it doesn't look as good as Zathura, especially by current standards. I also enjoyed the space elements of Zathura. But the kids come off as whiney brats.

horrible movie. the 2 main characters, the boys, completely ruin it w/their incessant and simultaneous arguing, whomever thought this would make the movie enjoyable or "more realistic" was smoking crack. After about the 5th time this happened, I wanted to walk out. I really wanted to enjoy the movie, especially after liking Jumanji when I was younger. But it was pretty bad IMO. To some special effects may make a lackluster movie "watchable" but not me (Star Wars anyone ??).
*end rant mode*

Chicken Little, I really liked ("Who we talkin' about again?") LOL. =)

But to each his/her own.

VERY fun flick. I expect this DVD to be a big favorite among the pre-teen boys. And teen ones. And very old ones like me.
