The Host: Netflix Surprises


Click to stream the movie here!

I watched this movie last October, not really knowing much about the film. I figured it was some sort of horror film, seeing that it was in the horror section on Netflix. Outside of that, nothing.

As it turns out, it's one of the most famous monster movies of the current era.

I was trying to think of what I could really say about the movie, and all of a sudden I came across a comment on a site that summed up the movie quite swiftly and simply (yet perfectly):
"Big monster, great CGI, comedy, pathos, some scares. All around good movie."
Really, that's all there really is to this streaming movie. Other than the fact that it's a foreign movie (I know some people out there are really put off by that sort of thing) there's very little wrong with it.

As long as you go into this movie knowing that it's going to be a fun ride, then that's what you're going to get. It's literally all over the place, but is genuinely good. It's basically WHAT a monster movie should be in today's film industry.

i will drop the usual shtick to say that Korean film is amazing, and people should watch Korean film. However, they should not watch Korean film's most popular offering, "The Host."

The host is considered a monster film, or a horror film, or a comedy, depending on who you talk to, but it's just not that good. The opening is strong, but once you are introduced to the monster, it just becomes a watered down, "the girl is stuck and needs to be saved" film a la independence day or something.

If you want to watch a good Korean movie, see "Save the Green Planet" or any one of the Vengeance Trilogy.
