Unbelievably original movie is going to make a lot of people very happy! (by penguinpenn)
Got to attend a special preview screening in DC a few weeks ago. I wasn't quite sure what to expect... I enjoyed watching the Twilight movies, but I wouldn't exactly call myself a Twihard. The Host though is ... AWESOME. You get all the stuff you'd expect from Stephenie Meyer - like some very hot dudes and a very unique romance... this time it's a love "box" rather than a love triangle. It's hard to explain but it's genius. I can guarantee you won't have seen anything like it!! Alien invasion + hot people trapped in caves the most inventive kissing <more>
scenes ever. As well as all the Twilighty stuff, you also get amazing performances - Saoirse Ronan is the ultimate kick-ass chick. She's got her pick of the men Max Irons and Jake Abel, who are absolutely going to be stars after this but there's so much more to her than that. She's an independent, powerful warrior woman. Jennifer Lawrence, watch out!! And why is no one talking about the kid who plays Saoirse's little brother yet?! He is adorable and so good. There is a scene where I teared up watching him. William Hurt was surprisingly hilarious as Uncle Jeb and Diane Kruger is deliciously evil as the Seeker. The movie also has a pretty thrilling sci fi plot, breathtaking scenery, crazy vintage cool costume design, and some seriously good-looking chrome cars. This is a quality movie. I guess that has something to do with Andrew Niccol being the director - from The Truman Show to Gattaca to In Time, he seem to make very stylish, smart movies.I haven't read the book though I just bought a copy with the movie poster on the front!! but I hear the movie sticks very closely to the novel. I think Twilight fans are going to be very happy. I think The Host novel fans are going to be very happy. I think a lot of people who didn't expect this movie to make them happy are going to be very happy!!Movie is out March 29th, and I am seriously counting down the days until I can see it again. PS Stephenie - if you're reading this - hurry up and write the next book so we can have our sequel! I have to know what happens to these characters. Hoster for life! are we calling ourselves "Hosters" or what ;- ?
I have not read the book, so I only had a vague synopsis of the story from a movie trailer. After watching the movie, I want to read the book to discover more details that a 2 hour movie cannot possibly accomplish for such a lenghty novel. I found the movie intriguing and well written. It captures the distinct personalities of both Melanie and Wanda, which could have been a disaster. It was sci-fi movie that explored many emotions and was a great escape for 2 hours. The cinematography was awesome from the desert scenes to the futuristic.It is different from the "Twilight Series" and <more>
I wish people would not compare the two. Hopefully, there will be a sequel!
As a big fan of the book, I found the movie interpretation of The Host fantastic, a must see for sci-fi fans. However, I do recommend reading the book first, as otherwise the complicated plot line could confuse. The Host is a totally different genre from twilight, and should appeal to a totally different audience, with the main theme being an alien invasion from the point of view of the alien, with a little bit of romance on the side. The movie sticks mostly to the plot outline of the book; a few minor details are not mentioned but no major plot changes occur, overall I think The Host is a <more>
wonderful example of how brilliant movies always come from brilliant books, and I hope to see a few more sci-fi novels, and perhaps movies from Stephanie Meyer in the future. I really can't wait for the DVD release!
This movie you will either enjoy or hate to be honest. If you want something that is action-packed and filled with cool sci-fi moments do not see this movie. Yes the movie is sci-fi but it's more about romance. It also is a tad slower.However, the cast was fantastic and the script was beautiful. There were cheesy moments but it was still really sweet and well done. Basically what I am saying, is if you like romance with a twist go and see it! If you are expecting something like Gattaca, you will be disappointed.I really loved the movie and felt it held up to the book. I usually hate movie <more>
versions of books but this was really good! If you like the book chances are you are going to like the movie. There are tweaks of course, but I thought they were mainly well done and helped get the same message across.
a brilliant gem. do not let the critics send you away. (by Siel_O)
i've just got back from the screening and the critics must be out of their minds, and completely blind by what can only be explained by me as prejudice. i can't agree less with the rotten current review average - i found the script to be the strongest aspect about this movie, and one of the best i've heard lately in the sci-fi and drama departments. the story is brilliant by any standard, characters are amazingly developed and relatable. about the effectiveness of the drama i was on the edge of my seat more than one time during the screening, and from different states of emotion - <more>
fear, happiness, sadness and more. i almost got to tears in more than one scene and again - on different story lines - some that dealt with family, some with self acceptance and some with finding your place in society. the story's message is so sensitive and humane, i really can not see how can anyone alive crush this amazing movie so much. but it's not the first time i completely disagree with the standard viewpoint about cinema. all i can hope is that stephenie meyer and the likes of her will not be put out by the common viewpoint, i believe there will come a time where she will be rewarded for what she is. till then i can only thank her for what she have accomplished here and elsewhere. my honest recommendation.
I found it very entertaining, and I was happy that it followed the book so well. The characters were pretty much as they were described in the book and they were all likable in the movie. I wondered how they would handle the dialog between Wanda and her host, because that is a lot easier to do in a book than a movie, but I think it worked as well as possible given the medium. I guess they could have had a little face in the back of her head talking, that would have been really funny/bad. If you liked the book, you will like the movie. If you like romance, you will like the movie, if you like <more>
an interesting alien, you will like the movie. If you want Star Wars, I'm not so sure.
The current score on IMDb is too low. This is a fairly good film. It's worth about a 7.5. To see the true IMDb score, click the link for the number of users and look at the bell graph. Eliminate the 1s and 10s, and you'll see that what you're left with is a solid 7.Saoirse Ronan was perfectly cast for this role as the sensitive, conflicted alien slowly gaining the trust of the human survivor group. Diane Kruger and William Hurt were also good. Once again, I'm struck how so many Hollywood movies lately have non-American actors playing Americans. What's that all about? <more>
"The Host" is part of a new genre I would call "sci fi for chicks". If it bothers you to see a "soft" science-fiction film with love-sick young people, noble suicides, impossibly handsome young men, aliens with emotions, etc., don't go see this one. It's the old male v. female dilemma: Should we kill the hated aliens or coax them out and make friends with them? There was not enough exposition at the start about the horrors of the alien invasion. The writers and producers seem to have assumed that moviegoers would understand why the characters want to "remain human" and why they would refer to a human-hosted alien as "it". Perhaps it was better explained in the book.The device of Melinda's consciousness remaining fully alert, and Wanda and Melinda actually talking to each other for our benefit, might put some moviegoers off. I'm not sure. I haven't read the other reviews. However, once I suspended my disbelief, I was able to go with the flow.They threw the male viewers a bone: Kruger and Ronan, to start. there were a few car and motorcycle chases involving futuristic-looking chrome vehicles , and shoot outs. Hey, this is a Hollywood movie, after all.The theme of humans hosting aliens is not original, but they took the concept in a different direction. The movie is slick and well made, but there were a few clichés and many, many aspects of the story that were glossed over, left unexplained or just not realistic. The survivors here were mostly young Hollywood pretty boys, not a ragged group of tough survivors like on "Walking Dead", for example. Still, I appreciated some of the details of the "good alien" theme, like a society of honest and trustworthy aliens that doesn't need cash to function, or where they will simply give you their car if you need it, or where everyone drives at the speed limit. God forbid we should have a society like that! Kill them! And I liked the part where the other seekers looked at the evil seeker played by Kruger and pointed out that she was getting a little too obsessed. After all the aliens saw themselves as the good guys. There are many species that coexist in symbiosis. It's interesting to think that maybe it would do our species good. This is actually a very old theme. There's not much difference between "her body has been taken over by an alien" and "she is filled with the Holy Spirit", or even "she is possessed by a demon".
Don't Listen to the Vitriotic Haters (by VTNJGirl)
...if you do you'll be selling yourself short. But it might help if you read the book first. So you can appreciate both more.First of all, get the whole Twilight comparison out of your head. This story is much better and so was the writing. I didn't even remember about Twilight as I was watching this movie.Yes, it was slow at times. What a relief to get away from the non-stop over-the-top violence of today's films. The Host gives us very different storyline, an interesting concept, and because of its very calmness, I literally jumped in my seat when sudden things happened.The <more>
acting was, for the most part, very good, especially the concept of having two people in one body, and even though the story was rushed time wise, and more character development would have been nice, you really do begin to understand what is going on inside everyone's heads.Yes, there were things that could have been done better. If you haven't seen the movie yet, don't read the rest of this paragraph!!!!! I was certainly confused by the spoiler alert!!!!!! sudden change in Ian towards Wanderer. And there was one critical scene that I was looking forward to that never happened and I haven't been able to check in the book to see if it was there because I believe that my daughter stole my copy and brought it to college with her and that is Another Spoiler Alert!!!!! : would have love to have seen the moment when Melanie woke up, not just skipping to Wanderer's reawakening.No, the Host isn't high art. It is just a low-key interesting movie shot in a breath-taking setting that also looks at things from a very different point of view. A very entertaining, thought-provoking and worth-while outing.And Max Irons is hot. I'm probably too old to say that. I should probably be looking at William Hurt instead, but no. Max Irons is really hot.
After years of low budget monster movies produced for cable, The Host is pretty refreshing. While the casual viewer might find the pacing slow and uneventful, character driven drama is the goal here.The story involves the aftermath of an alien invasion where parasitic beings take over the bodies and minds of their human 'hosts' The invasion is nearly complete when Melanie, one of the few remaking free humans is captured arnd given to an alien called Wanderer as a host. Melanie remains conscience and begins to fight her domination. This is an interesting, thoughtful film. Performances <more>
are top notch with the only problem being the physical similarity of three of the male leads. As noted elsewhere, this ads confusion on who is who in certain scenes. While there are no vast battles and the setup of the resolution is slightly confusing, I still greatly enjoyed this thoughtful film.
