Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005) – Filmsack Show Notes

Zathura 2005


Oh hi,

Ok. who’s turn is it? Oh yeah… mine! “Attention movie-adventurers, Filmsack awaits. Do you have what it takes to navigate the many worlds of shitty streaming services? It’s not for the faint of heart, for once you embark upon your journey there’s no turning back until Filmsack’s reached. in fact… I reach Filmsack at least once a week myself! It’s healthy! the school nurse says it’s natural… and finally … Viewers shake their heads to reset at the end of each movie. puke. Then Stream again and again for different crappy adventures.” Zorgons…take me away

Now somebody press play on my Bathroom Sony Boom Box with the makeup residue caked an inch deep, because we are about to launch this podcast into outer space and do our best to avoid Dax Shephard. Too late. Take Erasive action! Emergency! Emergency!

Anywho, has anyone seen my cryogenically frozen Twilight princess Kristen Stewart. It’s my 4 day week to take her home. You know…to toss the balls around…in the front yard…ya bunch of weirdos! Wait did I just win filmsack?

Randy, Still think I have beautiful eyes?
