Adaptation #41: A Host of Issues

header041Our hosts agree that Andrew Niccol’s The Host was a tough movie to make, with source material that had both too much and too little to fit into two hours. While they enjoyed the film, they also feel like it went too far in some areas and not far enough in others.

Also, check out episode #38: Mind, Host and Soul which covers the novel by Stephenie Meyer.
