Be grateful that she only got the clout to ruin Breaking Dawn I and II and had no input to speak of in Twilight, New Moon or Eclipse. Breaking Dawn I, II made huge amounts of money and now we know Meyer had nothing to do with it.
And Pattinson and Stewart had everything to do with the success of the franchise.
The Host has an excellent cast and that's it. Even excellent sounds dumb with these lines.
How Andrew Niccol could do the screenplay for The Truman Show and the screenplay for The Host will forever remain a mystery. His direction is awful also.
Every visual cliche is in it over and over and over and over again and again and again. You feel as if you are watching one of those terrible movies from the 1950's.
The musical score is awful. The syrup flows with each passionate kiss without any passion.
I cannot pan this movie enough. I even groaned aloud while watching it in all the right places.
It pulled in about 6 to 7 million above production costs. How it even did that I'll never know. Maybe because the Twilight audience came hoping against hope for another Edward. They definitely didn't get him.
I am quite sure now that this is what I have done with The Host. I have been programmed to perceive it as I have written about it above just like all the other reviewers. I shall be re-reviewing it reading it through the paintings of Mark Tansey. CLICK HERE
