If you make a movie based off a boring book, you're likely to get a boring movie. That's sure what we got with The Host!
I know everyone in Hollywood is looking for "The next Twilight." But my guess is it's not gonna come from Stephenie Meyer, 'cause it certainly isn't The Host.
Melanie's body is taken over by a "pod person," as are most bodies. However, Melanie fights back and argues with her inhabiter. The inhabiter, Wanderer by name, feels for her and tries to help. Only, not many of Melanie's friends are ready to jump on board.
It's a nice premise and all, but we spend the entire movie in a cave, a boring, boring cave.
Okay, I'll be honest. I didn't finish the movie. I didn't see it in the theater, so it's not like I walked out or anything, but I didn't finish it, and I have no desire to.
