The Host

With the Twilight series tapped out, Hollywood turns to Stephenie Meyer’s other hit book, The Host, for a shot at box office success. For all the criticism lobbed at Twilight and its sequels, though, none of the films in that series are as inane as The Host. The story is about the invasion of Earth by an alien race called Souls (how original); the Souls are implanted into human bodies, with small pockets of people making up a resistance movement. There is one area where the film has a leg up on the Twilight films: the unintentional humor derived from idiotic incidents. Otherwise, it’s a chore of a film.
