yes, Stephanie did it again. I like movies that are different and you can't predict. This was very interesting concept and it wouldn't be perfect without a love story and twist. My roomie, "tough guy" went and cried, it was sweet. Enjoy! GO

I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS MOVIE, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE A MAJOR DISSAPOINTMENT..IT WAS A LOW BUDGET MOVIE WITH ALOT OF HYPE AND PROMOTION..THE ACTING WAS HORRIBLE, THE STORY WAS BORING..I HAVE SEEN TV COMMERCIALS WITH MORE APPEAL THAN THIS CRAP...I FEEL SO DECEIVED AND RIPPED OFF..I WANT MY MONEY BACK...DONT GO SEE THIS MOVIE..DONT EVEN SEE IT ON DVD !!!

Intriguingly different with a once in a life time kind of love

While you experience the film mainly with Wanda/Melanie, it makes you feel all the emotions that would overwhelm you if you were in that kind of position. It also has two love stories built into one film. The love between Melanie and Jared seems to be a love that could overcome anything. It is a true love story that tugs at the strings of your heart. All you can do is hope for them to be brought back together again. Then there is the love between Wanda and Ian a passionate love that you can’t let go of. The science fiction aspect adds more character and originality to the film. Instead of being just a love story, it is also a struggle for survival against the souls taking over the human bodies. It is an amazing film that you should definitely go see! I also hope there is a sequel.

I like to read, reading is a skill of mine that, I'm sure, many other human beings like to do. I read The Host and it was probably one of the best books that Stephanie Myers has wrote yet! So, of course, when I heard there was a movie coming out based on it, I watched the movie. I sat through about two hours of Andrew Niccol destroying the best book I've ever read! They muddled up things, left things out, didn't go into further detail and explain the things they DID have. My little brother, who refused to go near the book, watched it with me as well and agree with me on the fact that it was a bad movie. He didn't understand what was happening, an because of that didn't like it. For those who haven't read the book, it's a bad movie. I just wouldn't go.

Good Movie

It's been a few years since I read the book when it first came out so I don't have all the details fresh in my head but what I can remember I thought they stayed pretty close to the book. The only thing I didn't like in the movie was the actress Emily Browning who plays Wanda at the end of the movie. The book said she had red hair and freckles. This girl looks like a duck and is not cute in any way! Bad job on casting I think! The rest of the movie I felt was pretty cool. the acting was good.
