Yeah... incase you didnt know, I'm a lifelong sucker for Kaiju Eiga (yep, Monster Movies). "The Host" being even more atypical for the genre for having a decent 'human element' and a odd sense of political awareness to it. In essence its a weird combo of social consciousness/family values/mutant tadpole-monster eats picnickers as monster flick... which even more oddly was really well received at film fests all around Europe last year. And was on the cover of ARTFORUM (??) last month.
