    I can't remember the last time a movie did basically nothing for me


    Edit: feeling compelled to defend three stars here. One each for:
    - The ornithopters
    - The way the Sardaukar levitate down from the sky
    - The hunter-seeker operator cemented into the palace wall

  • The Host

    The Host

    ★★★★½

    Added a half-star because I can't stop thinking about it. Bong's signature move here is to show, very plainly, plot developments that are so tremendously bad for the characters involved that it takes a full 2-3 seconds for the audience to comprehend that they happened at all. Incredible stuff.
