Not to be confused as a remake of the superb Korean film, The Host.

Sounds like exactly what I'd expect from the cancer on youth culture, otherwise known as Stephanie Meyer.

For those who read the book and somehow found their way here, how much of this movie's suckiness comes from the source material it adapted from? How much of it came from the way it was adapted on screen?

This is what I expected when I intially saw that a movie called "The Host" was coming out in North America. What a bummer.

Wow, am I the only one here who liked this movie? I am not saying its great - probably around 2.5 stars, but I enjoyed it, and have it preordered.

^^ Personally, I found the premise ridiculous because it offers no reason to side with the human resistance, and on top of that, the movie was just plain boring.

I keep trying to give Meyer and her movie adaptations a chance, just to be fair, but I can't get into them no matter how much I try.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

LOL, good one, I believe you. I'm certain that when it hits TV the commercial breaks will make for more compelling viewing.
