John & Becky’s Movie Review The Host

thehostBecky and I took Corban to see the new movie The Host at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO last week. The Fandango website at The Host describes the movie as follows…

“A body-snatching alien takes possession of a young woman who refuses to surrender her mind, and together they seek out the man they both love as writer/director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time) adapts Twilight author Stephenie Meyer‘s New York Times best-seller. The majority of the human race have been possessed by unseen invaders, leaving only small pockets of “wild” humans like Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) scattered throughout the world. Upon being captured by the invaders, Melanie finds her body claimed by Wanderer, a spirit that has been warned of the difficulties that come with claiming a human host. In the process of inhabiting Melanie, Wanderer is deeply affected by her vivid dreams and memories. And when Melanie fights to maintain control of her mind even as Wanderer possesses her body, the sympathetic entity joins her on a journey that will reveal the unfathomable depths of human love and compassion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi..”

The Review: We had seen pretty much everything at the box office and we decided to go see The Host and invited Corban to go along with us.  Why Corban was willing to go see this film surprised me because he was not a fan of the Twilight series, but we were not fans either.  We figured we would give this movie a chance and see what it was about and went into the film with no real expectations either way.

I’m not going to pull any punches, this movie is absolutely terrible.  You would be better off watching an old episode of Star Trek than this movie.  After the movie, Corban said, “That was the worst movie I’ve seen since The Incredible Mr. Fox.”, which was really funny.  He said, “Even Twilight was better than this movie.”, which was funny too.  Yes, this movie is that bad.

It’s about these friendly aliens, who have taken over the planet by doing an invasion of the body snatchers move and inhabiting the body of the human being after ejecting the soul of the current user, which is why it’s called Host.  It’s basically a remake of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” all over again, only it’s not a horror story, but a love story.  It’s extremely stupid and painful to watch.  The aliens have made the planet better and do not perform violence, but one alien that is a leader is rebelling and commits violent acts against the humans who are trying to survive.

I can’t add anything more to this movie other than to say that it’s definitely a waste of time.
