I wanted to...

...like this movie, but when you have a certain level of expectation in terms of plot and character depth you'll only be disappointed with the Twilitization of any sci-fi story. From the absolutely annoying human mind talking to the alien who possessed her body, to the huge holes in storyline, it just ended up being a photographic experience that would have best been seen in super-fast-forward.

I read the host awhile ago but from what i can remember it followed the book very well. And it is not very often that I can say the movie was exactly what i pictured when i was reading! To everyone that has read the book you must go see it!!!!!!!! For people that have not read the book, you will probably just say its an ok movie

The Host

I really enjoyed the movie. I thought they did a pretty good job showing the struggle between Melanie and the "soul" inhabiting her body. I'm very glad that I went.

It was OK but just not the right book to be brought to the screen

I read the book several years ago and did not care for it particularly. When I heard it was to be brought to the screen I was surprised this particular book would be chosen. A book that so much takes place in thoughts rather than words just didn't sound promising. I went because I am a big fan of Max Irons and Jake Abel and hoped to see they had gotten roles in a great movie. They were worth seeing it for but wish they had been in it more. The whole small male cast was good. The problem with the two entities in the same body was as much a problem as I thought it would be. Confusing at times. It wasn't a bad movie but other than the actors I did not enjoy the story. The humor that was brought into it at times was a bit out of place but it made me smile. I did get teary toward the end with Wanda and Melanie so it did make me care.

if at best this is a science fiction movie that not everyone will like but compared to twilight its not that bad. if fact i would also say some people who see this will absolutely miss the point in what going on in this movie. it all depends on your attention span. in a way i rather see this as a tv series then a movie.
