Happy Earth Day, with “The Host”

Happy Earth Day, with "The Host"

In commemoration of our overheating, warring, poisoned planet, I’ve done my best to get the word out about Earth Day and champion “The Host” as one of the must-see environmental films of the year: here at MSN Movies and the Utne Reader’s weekly PodCast. How often does a monster movie get this much critical attention: along with Jafar Panahi’s “Offside,” Metacritic rates “The Host” as the best-reviewed film so far of 2007. Not that anyone seems to be counting… With about $2 million in U.S. ticket receipts, the film just never got much traction in theaters.
