The Host is the latest vision from Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer to hit the big screen. Our The Host review finds it a fascinating story idea, but one that fails to come together.

Writing an Upside Down review is challenging as we want people to reward the originality of the Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess romance. But, Upside Down falls apart in the last half hour.
