The Giver Event

“The Giver” event was a nice experience. The red carpet premiere was simulcast at different movie theaters throughout the U.S. and shown on the big screen. The quality was amazing. I took pictures that almost look like I was there, except for the theater seats, I was right next to Katie Holmes, Taylor Swift and Jeff Bridges.

“The Giver” is an adaptation of the book with the same title written by Lois Lowry with Phillip Noyce and Jeff Bridges below

During the simulcast they mentioned that this movie was eighteen years in the making. When I think back eighteen years, I had a four year old and a one year old. Fast forward to 2014 and it’s my youngest daughter that has read the book and wanted to see this movie. Eighteen years ago, the premise was definitely before it’s time. However, presently and unfortunately, it follows the huge success of The Hunger Games and Divergent.

“The Giver” tells a sweet and simple story. Watching Brenton Thwaites as Jonas protect the baby Gabriel made my allergies flare for some reason. My eyes were watering, nose running…weird but perhaps without raw edginess and a continuation of its story (trilogy) that leaves it’s audience wanting more, it may get lost in the futuristic movie making shuffle. I hope not.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed the experience. Live band, OneRepublic! Harvey Weinstein….Exciting!

If you were fortunate enough to view the simulcasted event, it was worth the big screen for sure but without the extras to support, you may be able to wait for Redbox with this one or read the book. I need to.

Enjoy!

WGCI Sprite Lounge “Who is Mike Jay?”

Who is Mike Jay? I have absolutely no idea.

I saw the invite on WGCI website and thought he looks like a nice young man that MY DAUGHTER would like to meet and greet. Did I have any ulterior motives to play match maker for my baby girl up?! Of course not! wink…

She stood me up….

I decided to honor the invite so I could find out who this Mike Jay really was. He’s a cute young man and we share the same birthday.
Welcome to the June5crew Mike Jay!

MY DAUGHTER should have joined me. I’m sure she would have enjoyed him. I did. He’s made some outstanding accomplishments in the music business thus far. He’s even written for my #CougarCrush Mr. Chris Brown.
