THE HOST

Another strange one. A combination monster movie cum family drama with some humor. The humor didn’t work for me, but some of the family stuff did – some nice character arcs. Pretty neat monster. I liked the way things became personal and especially liked the way the film keeps you off balance by killing off sympathetic characters when you least expect. I got impatient with some of the family stuff, so that’s when I FF’d. But I recommend it for a different take on the giant monster genre (almost antipodal from Cloverfield).
