The Host (Trailer #3) Review

Just so there is no confusion I hate what this film is doing and the trailer just makes me cringe from start to end. From the mind Stephanie Meyer creator of the Twilight Saga, we get this new invasion genre assassin ‘The Host’. First she turned vampires into sparkling fairies, werewolves who are apparently allergic to shirts and a female lead who loves an older man who pervs over her sleeping, truly a role model for young girls everywhere. I just can’t wait to see how she will ruin alien invasions. What have I gleamed from the trailer? Aliens like white suits and mirror cars. Alien host learns to love a real boy. Romance will encompass this entire film, not good romance but lots of twilight “romance”. As a trailer it’s good but I can see it’s not a film for me. I didn’t see any acting per say but I don’t recognise anyone in it and wouldn’t know if we were getting another batch of awful actors, so can anyone enlighten me?

Score: B

Plot:

What if everything you love was taken from you in the blink of an eye? “The Host” is the next epic love story from the creator of the “Twilight Saga,” worldwide bestselling author, Stephenie Meyer. When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about — Jared (Max Irons), Ian (Jake Abel), her brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury) and her Uncle Jeb (William Hurt) , proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.

Sorry I invaded your girlfriend’s body and now she’s my bitch. But does me controlling her into looking cute help you not want to kill me. I hate stupid predictable relationships and that’s all I have seen throughout this trailer. There’s essentially going to be a love triangle between two people.

2. What Is It With The Mirror Cars?

The invading aliens apparently defeated us with their stylish cars and whiter than white suits. Why sports cars? Do the invaders have the same vanity to us but as a collective? What’s the strategy?! They seem retarded and somehow beat us! This angers me!

This is the only compliment I have for this film. It may have some good action scenes but it is only a trailer and they tend to include the best parts to get you in the cinema. It won’t be fooling me today and I hope it isn’t as bad as I think but I would be very surprised if this film turned out to be good.

    Although you may not have heard of her, Saoirse Ronan is a brilliant actress. Nominated for an oscar for her role in atonement at the age of just 13. She is also the best thing about the disappointing lovely bones and is amazing in Hanna. William Hurt is an oscar winner so the acting should be good from at least those 2.

    Saoirse Ronan is good. If anyone can make this film work, she can.

    Still, I think I’ll avoid this one like the plague.

    Saoirse Ronan is good, at least what I’ve seen her in thus far. That said I will not be seeing this because I think Stephanie is a terrible terrible writer. I watched all the Twilight’s with my roomie for girly fun but this one doesn’t even look fun for me. It doesn’t even look so bad it’s fun like Twilight. 😦

      Good to hear 😀

      I’ll admit I have never laughed so much as watching Twilight, but this wont be so obvious to mock. But you never know, we could be seeing the birth a million memes 😀
