The 'Emperor' has no clothes. And I am talking about the herd of lemmings called professional reviewers. Each reviewer is afraid to look stupid in front of the other reviewers, so, when something that is an 'easy target' like The Host comes along, they can't really decide for themselves, but need to follow the rest of the herd. So we get reviews that make you wonder if they even watched the movie, let alone understood it. And we get a lot of reviews that don't even really deal with the movie, but with the reviewers own prejudices. Some of the comments I read were amazing. Complaints by one reviewer that the main character looked better in her silver night gown than she did in grubby cave clothes, and maybe they should have had more of the silver night gown. Or lamentations that William Hurt's character was put in a 'hippie pony tail' and wasn't that just ridiculous. Or one reviewer even wrote his personal opinion, hoping and wishing that this movie would fail, so we wouldn't have to see any more crap like this. Huh? Personal opinions are fine, but is this really professionalism? Why does Rotten Tomatoes even count the opinions of such 'professionals' let alone add their tally to the general review total? Hey, I'm seen this movie and I'm here to tell you that you can argue whether it was a great movie, a mediocre movie or a poor movie, and depending on who you are and your own personal preferences, you would be right. But none of that says anything about THE MOVIE. Just because it was written by Stephenie Meyer, who has 'sparkly' vampires and writes 'teenage love stories' doesn't mean that it is crap. I think people's jealousy of her millions of dollars in profits is coming out. Especially when she earned those millions of dollars by giving her fans EXACTLY the type of story they wanted. And it's funny because Twilight is much more popular among adults than among teens, and THE HOST is better written and this movie is better made than Twilight. But it still isn't everyone's cup of tea. AND it isn't bad or horrible. So could we get some reviewers who can deal with things as they really are? And maybe even be willing to make up their own minds based on what is REALLY there? You can always find something bad to say about ANYTHING, but that doesn't make it bad. This movie will stand the test of time much better than the opinions of some of its reviewers.
