Typically I choose a movie to review based on its moral message, but for today’s review I decided to watch a movie and see what it had to offer good or bad. I’ve really wanted to see The Host since back in 2013, when I saw the trailer, but haven’t had the opportunity till a week ago. I’m a sucker for science fiction stories based in utopias, so this movie appeared to be right up my alley. As a bonus it also had aliens! Aliens always make movies better…. 😉 My main concern was that this movie was based off the book of the same title by Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight Series. (Note: I’m happy to say I’ve never seen or read any of the twilight movies/books. My wife has excellent tastes) I was also a little concerned that some of the scenes in the trailer looked like they came directly from “The Notebooks” deleted scenes, but I don’t mind some romance. Despite those two things I was excited to give this a try.
