"ZATHURA: A Space Adventure" has an old-fashioned sensibility -- and for good reason. Director Jon Favreau, who wrote and starred in the 1996 indie hit "Swingers," is an old-fashioned guy whose tastes run on the nostalgic side. He grooves to the tunes of Sinatra. He is obsessed with hot rods, especially his own 1932 Ford, which he proudly shows off in his Santa Monica garage. And, he strives to make movies that harken back to the days before computer-generated images.
