Default The Host: As good as reviews say?

A 92% on Rottentomatoes and rated very highly on many sites for not only the film in general but the Bluray A/V transfer. Its cheap at $20ish or so - what you guys think? Does it have replay value? Must have?

Ya I was surprised too it got all the praise. Not sure if its worth buying or not.

How about Pan's Labyrinth? Thats another highly praised one.

I thought it was good but not great. its definitely not on the caliber of Jaws as some reviews suggested. I would rent or pick it up cheap.

Ive tried reading the sypnosis on Pans and dont quite understand it. So it sounds like a sci-fi fairy tale? Hmmm....sounds more like a "view once" movie.

If you watch this movie, DO NOT watch it with the english dub. Watch it with subtitles.

Don't insult us.


Pan's Labyrinth is a GREAT FUCKING FILM!!!!!


No, it's not sci-fi, it's an adult fantasy through the eyes of a child. There's lots of war violence, and is def not for kids.
