Well I finally got around to watching the Host, and it was awesome, just like I knew it would be! The director did such a good job of bringing Stephanie Meyer’s story to life. The underground cave hideout that Uncle Jeb created was just the way I pictured it. The scene where Melanie walks through the desert was a great scene. I loved the chemistry between the characters, and I love that they didn’t stray too far from the book. They absolutely nailed it! Great movie, and definitely one that I plan on buying on DVD.
I love the book The Host. Way back in 2008, it was the first Christmas gift that the Hubs bought for me. I have read and re-read it, and I get lost in the parasite infested new world that Stephanie Meyer created. I was so excited to see that they made a movie from the book! It looks like they really nailed it, and the special effects don’t look cheesy at all. I’m dying to go see the movie, but I recently came down with a cold, it might have to wait. 🙁 Plus being 7.5 months preggo, I’m not sure I can sit through a whole movie in the theater. 😉 But I know whenever I do get the chance to see it, it’s going to be awesome!
