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 !!!

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.

Better than I expected

Before I went I made the mistake of reading the reviews, but I usually don't take the reviews seriously (since some of my most favorite movies are rated very poorly). I was very please with the Host. Unlike the Twilight serious the acting was very good and they did a great job with following the book. I think that for those who have read the book it is worth going, but if you haven't then it might be worth waiting for redbox. I'm pleased that I went to the theaters to watch this. WIth all of the disapointing movies coming out lately, this was very refreshing.

Thank god they got actors who can actually act! Let's be honest because most books to movies fall a little short and this one isn't perfect but it is really good! And Saroise Ronan is great! Worth the money.
