How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 241 (or “Bowfinger” did it first…)


Having read the first book and seen the first movie in the Twilight Saga, and loathed both with a passion, you have avoided the work of Stephenie Meyer and the subsequent film adaptations that have occurred.  As such, when you first saw the trailer (provided below) for the film adaptation of Meyer’s supposed “science fiction” novel, The Host, you were shocked.

Why the shock? While you haven’t read the book, you have seen the film Bowfinger, a comedy in which a terrible director secretly films a famous actor without his knowledge in order to make a science fiction film called Chubby Rain, about aliens invading Earth via raindrops.

Thus, you exclaimed, “I can’t believe it… The Host is basically Chubby Rain being filmed for real!”

Behold, and judge for yourself.
