Meryl Streep looks fab!

# 2

Is Harvey coaching her now too?
It appears she has been making more of an effort lately even if not totally nailing it you still sense she thought more about it. Someone has told her to put the hair up now which does help. However, here it looks a bit just pulled too tight and not really styled
As for the dress, the color is at least better than that Burgundy get up recently. The shoes don’t fit the outfit though and look totally out of place.
Next maybe someone will help her with the make up. She always gets smudges in eyeliner that look like yesterday’s left over make up.

# 3

She never smiles with an open mouth on the red carpet. Is she hiding her teeth?

# 4

Oh come on, Katie Holmes. There is just no excuse to still look this awkward on the red carpet. Her stylist should be fired – she looks matronly and so much older than she is. Good grief I seriously wonder about this gal. She seems like such a novice and she’s been around for awhile.

# 5

She’s been known for having stained and somewhat crooked teeth. Maybe she was a smoker at some point? Odd that an actress would have stained teeth – crooked can be charming.

I’m so sick of you hateful, nasty people who have nothing even remotely polite to say.

Katie looks gorgeous. Beautiful, confident and I’m sure, much, MUCH more attractive than either of you #’s 2 & 3.

You guys are ugly as sin inside and I bet not nearly attractive at Holmes on the outside either.

The Giver Premiere @ 08/11/2014 at 10:13 pm

It looks Katie’s stylist is sticking with the same hairstyle and makeup coloring she wore at the Life Is Amazing premiere presented by The Weinstein Company.

Her makeup looked better and more fresh faced at the Gravity premiere and would have complemented what she wore tonight.

Die-hard fans of the novel have expressed their concerns about the decision to make the characters older. Producer Nikki Silver credits The Weinstein Co. for the strategic move: “We started to see that the book would appeal on the wider audience basis.”

Following the premiere, the stars headed uptown to the Central Park Boathouse for the after party.

At least there are no pigeon toe pictures in this lot here that Jared chose.

I also hope the issue concerns all help. Thank you very much.

@Tired of the biotches here: LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL.

Did Katie hire a new stylist? This dress flatters her body type.

THANK YOU for finally saying what many of us are thinking. I’m so sick of these negative people. They wish they were as pretty and rich as Katie. They’re probabaly all scienofreakology people. Hahahahahahahahaha.

@Tired of the biotches here: Let’s hear it for another one is tired and sick of them also. They hang out here on Jared and always bash people who more fortunate than them. Envious and jealous B I T C H E S!

Love you Katie. You look amazing, very beautiful.

I think its many of the same people using different names to bash Katie. They are more than just envious. I think they are disturbed. No one else posts here cause these few haters make it miserable for everybody else.

Katie looks beautiful.
Reviews for The Giver are starting to trikle out if anyone’s interested. There are two very positive ones on RT. THR also has a review which is lukewarm/mixed. I can see why they wanted an embargo as some of the reviews give away a lot.

BTW, I’ve been away for a few weeks. I see that not much has changed. Guys, just ignore the haters. Trust me I’ve tried to engage but it’s just not worth it.

I like the way Katie looks in this dress, her makeup, and hair. I don’t like her shoes she should have worn nude color shoes.

Looks like Meryl Streep worked all day.

Katie was busy this weekend. According to JJ she was in LAX on Saturday but back in New York on Sunday and at the Hamptons at Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman’s house for a private screening of The Giver (according to the New York Post). Guess her parents met the Weinsteins. Tomorrow she’ll be on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The just jealous line is what is old and tired. Sorry but this is a celebrity blog and Katie’s threads aren’t even as bad as many others here.
Things aren’t going to change just because a handful of fans want everyone else to love their little Katie.
Comments will always be mixed.
Be glad you don’t love George Clooney or Jen Anniston because those threads are a million times worse.
Get over it unless you want to go make private fan page for your loved one.

The Giver Film Review – HR

But (no spoilers here) the hurdle Jonas eventually faces is more akin to that of the wizard-battling hero who can just smash an enchanted object to break the spell enslaving his kingdom. Wham-bam, no need for feel-good scenes of the peace he has brought to his fellow peasants.
This easy out should go over especially badly with readers attached to the novel’s much more ambiguous end — though to be fair, audiences by now are so used to this type of nonsense that it hardly even register. Like Jonas’ father — Alexander Skarsgard, who more than anyone in the cast finds a way to embody Sameness while being unmistakably human — we moviegoers tend to accept what we’re told, never knowing the peaks of feeling and intelligence we should really be demanding.

The Bottom Line:
A lazy ending mars this fine, if generic, take on a much-loved YA novel.

***the review only mentions Jonas’ father (Skarsgard); it does not mention his mother (Holmes).

Variety- REVIEW @ 08/12/2014 at 6:19 am

“But it’s hard to know what exactly to feel for Holmes, who’s casting as exactly the kind of dead-eyed Stepford wife the tabloids proffered during the TomKat years seems like someone’s idea of a cruel joke.”

The Giver Review – FSR

To their credit, they never try to make the book something it’s not. The Giver isn’t a thrill ride, nor should it be.

The Upside: Jeff Bridges is excellent; captures the spirit of Lowry’s novel; the beautiful black-and-white photography; Marco Beltrami’s score; finishes strong

The Downside: A slightly bumpy narrative; the end credits song doesn’t suit the tone of the movie or the ending; one scene definitely should’ve been in black-and-white, since it’s not from Jonas’s point-of-view.

Grade: B

***mentions Streep, Bridges and Thwaites characters only.

The Giver film review – Variety

What Lois Lowry hath given in her bestselling YA novel, this flaccid screen adaptation taketh away.

Sameness, the conformist plague that afflicts the futuristic citizens of Lois Lowry’s celebrated and scorned YA novel, “The Giver,” might also be the name given to what ails the movie adaptation — the latest in a seemingly endless line of teen-centric dystopian fantasies that have become all but indistinguishable from one another.

“The Giver” reaches the screen in a version that captures the essence of Lowry’s affecting allegory but little of its mythic pull — a recipe likely to disappoint fans while leaving others to wonder what all the fuss was about. Any hopes by co-producers the Weinstein Co. and Walden Media that they might have the next “Hunger Games” (or even “Divergent”) on their hands look to be dashed by lackluster late-summer box office.

….while the incidental character of the community’s Chief Elder has been padded out into a ghoulish, Nurse Ratched-esque villain role for Meryl Streep (who appears alternately in real and holographic form, and seems equally disembodied in each). And with only partial success, Noyce, who’s long been one of the best action directors around (“Patriot Games,” “Clear and Present Danger,” “Salt”), tries to turn Lowry’s elegant, open-ended climax into a large-scale setpiece involving speeding motorbikes, drone aircraft and storm-trooper thugs rounding up dissidents into a Guantanamo-like prison.

—-And yet, Bridges is the most affecting thing in the movie — a man physically and spiritually exhausted by having to carry the emotional weight of the world on his shoulders. The same, unfortunately, can not be said of Thwaites, who barely registered as the young prince in “Maleficent” and makes even less of an impression here.

As Jonas takes on ever more of the Receiver’s wisdom and experience, he’s meant to be shaken and stirred, pushed to the very brink of psychological endurance, but Thwaites plays it all with the same unwavering expression of sleepy, dumbstruck awe, more Harry Styles than Harry Potter.

Elsewhere, Israeli newcomer Odeya Rush flashes an entrancing come-hither stare, but otherwise sets off few sparks as the unrequited object of Jonas’ proscribed affections (or “stirrings,” as they’re known in community-speak), while country star Taylor Swift feels like the equivalent of human product placement in a thankless walk-on.

But it’s hard to know what exactly to feel for Holmes, who’s casting as exactly the kind of dead-eyed Stepford wife the tabloids proffered during the TomKat years seems like someone’s idea of a cruel joke.

This year at the movies has given us two superior dystopia tales — “The Lego Movie” and “Snowwpiercer” — rich in the kind of real emotion “The Giver” talks about a lot but never achieves.

Review: Why ‘The Giver’ is a Flawed Adaptation of Lois Lowry’s Book – IndieWire

Over dinner, during the time allotted for sharing feelings, Jonas reveals to his parents that he is “terrified” (rather than the book’s “apprehensive”) about the prospect of tomorrow’s sorting, to the chagrin of his straight-laced, Department of Justice mother (picture perfect, easy-to-grimace Katie Holmes), who tuts him to mind the accuracy of his words, and the slight dismay of his Nurturer father (icy yet ultimately tender Alexander Skarsgard).

Grade: B-

‘The Giver’ Review: Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep Can’t Teach This Predictable YA Thriller New Tricks – The Wrap

If the film aces its depiction of the dawning horror and social alienation that comes with studying yesteryear, the rest is largely a failure. “The Giver” is an anti-totalitarian allegory so farcically hyperbolic it feels like only a teenager could have come up with it.

Despite these chance felicities, though, “The Giver” feels pinned and tucked into place, evincing a too-smooth surface with all the standard narrative folds and corners. The picture is more human than the people it depicts, but it merely goes and ends where you’d expect it to, save for a gruesomely stupid final two minutes that surprises only with its laziness.

***mentions Streep, Bridges and Thwaites characters only.
