Once again I was lucky enough to get passes to a premiere screening this time it was for a movie I had been dying to see, Stephanie Meyer’s, The Host starring Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons Diane Kruger, and William Hurt.
I loved Stephanie Meyer's book The Host even more than the Twilight series so when I heard that it was going to be a movie I had some concerns. But I shouldn't have! This movie was amazing from beginning to end! And I cried like a baby y’all know how I feel about stuff that makes me cry right? Crying=AWESOME!!!!!
I was so impressed with how close to the book they got! I mean there were things that got left out but they weren't even important enough to register on my radar.
I loved Saoirse as Melanie/Wanda. When she was cast I wasn't entirely convinced that she was right for the part but she did an amazing job! And how they used Melanie's memories as flashbacks was really cool! You could see Wanda feeling how Melanie felt! Oh and the love interests Ian and Jared? They were cast perfectly and the chemistry between Wanda/Ian and Melanie/Jared was spot on! And holy hell Jake Abel? Be still my heart he has a fan for life! And not because I was Team Ian in the book, but because he was brill! And OMG William Hurt was the perfect Jeb and Diane Kruger was as crazy as the Seeker was and I loved to hate her!
The set was breathtaking as well! The cave set was my favorite but the alien upgrades to our planet were awesome and the way they transported the aliens to and from earth was beautiful!
I highly suggest that everyone go and see The Host! I will definitely be going again!
Oh and one more thing before I close. My mom who hates most sci-fi movies LOVED this one!!!!
