Loved it

The book was good but the movie (surprisingly) was better. The movie left out a lot of elements from the book but it was a really good rendition. Just like the book when u think there is still more to come, it wraps it all up real fast. The characters are not how I pictured them but as the movie moves on everything in your mind changes and they become exactly what you want. However the scenery was exactly what I had imagined. I do disagree with the scene with Kyle and the whirl pool. In the book he was knocked unconscious and the floor started to give way and Wanda risks her life to save him. That is not how it happens in the movie and there was no risk to Wanda's life. But overall a great movie. Even though they did not have a scene of Walter and his funeral or one of Jodie/Sunny. In closing DO NOT take a 2 min bathroom break when Wanda goes shopping it's only about 15mins from the end and you'll miss Wes' death and the capture of the seeker. At least that's What I think I missed.

The Host

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

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.

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.

I loved the book read it 5 times and feel like i have been wating forever for this movie, for a book to movie adaptation it was good. I wish they could have done some of the stuff from the book like the soocer and what happened to Walter?? Didn't see a whole lot of Jamie and the stories from Wanda. It seemed like they took a lot of the emotion out of the movie. But i have learned that my imagination is just better and I lower my expectations. Going in i was not sure about the cast but they really won me over execpt I thought kyle would have been bigger and Pet/Wanda should have been blonde right and the Seeker should have had black hair. I highly recommend it! I will buy it when it comes out and watch it over and over like i do Twilight :)
