Went to the movies today to go see Sparkle... and ... it was ok. Yes, I am comparing this newer version to the 1976 Sparkle with Irene Cara; which was such a good movie. Honestly, the movie had some similarities as the original, however there were a lot of subtle changes along the way. I thought Jordan Sparx was pretty good considering this is her first acting gig. I could barely keep a straight face while watching Mike Epps play Satin. In the original version, Satin was horrible...horrible and he looked like a true slimy, sleazy male. Mike Epps didn't look sleazy enough. And I thought Whitney Houston's acting was spot-on.
I really believe that this remake was made for the generation of today. And that's fine. A lot of the younger crowd walked out thinking it was the best movie ever! Just as I thought when I first saw the original.
So, have any of you gone to see it?
