Read Angus Wolfe Murray's film review of Zathura: A Space Adventure

I think this film is too frightening for me (I'm only four and a half!) and the boys in it are very brave.

My Daddy says it is a "Boys Own Adventure" and has watched it lots. As well as the film, there are lots of extra bits. In one bit, some people talk all the way through the film and in others the words the people are saying show at the bottom of the screen. There's one really long and noisy bit where you can see the special effects. I thought this was silly and spoilt the film because they tell you how they did it, so you know it wasn't real! Which is no good.

Daddy liked all these bits and said they were "Fascinating". There are little films about the people in the film which my Dad says are useful but I only liked the boys and their sister.

I would have liked a game to play like in the film but you have to buy that separately, or play it on the computer, or online here (thank you for typing that, Daddy).

There isn't much for girls here. It's mostly for boys, which is O.K, but girls are best.
