    Watch: Saoirse Ronan & Alexis Bledel Are Hired Killers In Trailer For 'Violet & Daisy'

    Cross Post: The Host: Less Anti-Feminist than Twilight, but Hardly a Sisterhood Manifesta

    I readily admit I did not read The Host. I couldn't face it after immersing myself in all things Twilight while researching my book Seduced by Twilight. I started it, but less than 20 pages in I couldn't stomach any more of Stephenie Meyer's purple, flaccid prose. No, I agree with Nicki Gerlach--tha...

    Having suffered through the last two installments of the heavy-breathing "Twilight Saga," I wasn’t eager to see the latest film based on a novel by Stephenie Meyer. The only reason I had any hope was the presence of Saoirse Ronan in the leading role—and indeed, this uncommonly gifted Irish actress i...

    Review: 'The Host' Is A Dopey & Dull Sci-Fi Disaster

    Last fall saw the end of what appeared, for a little while at least, to be a seemingly endless series of "Twilight" films. The moony film series, based on a series of equally moony novels by Mormon housewife Stephenie Meyer, were torturously lengthy, poorly plotted trifles, the stuff of dime-store r...
