The Host

Movie • THE HOST • 2006
As goofy land-running giant fish monster movies go, this wasn't too bad. Try not to pay attention to the story. You'll be disappointed unless you like to make fun of bad writing, and worse acting. The monster shows up pretty early, so there isn't any time wasted, but they certainly tried too hard to shoe-horn in government reaction and family chemistry that never seems to work.
The best part was when the monster regurgitates the bones of all his victims. The sound of the bones trickling all over the concrete floor of the sewer reminded me of jelly beans in a plastic Easter egg.
