  1. Thank you Thomasina. I did love Sparkle. It could have been better, but I still loved the movie. Whitney looked great. Jordan was great too. Everyone did a great job.

  2. I totally agree with your assessment on the old, new, script, costumes, music. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the movie. Appreciated that they stayed true to original but also updated and modernized a bit. Thank you for the opportunity to see and share in it with you! I just have to say as I was reading review, when you said bittersweet in Whitney portion, I stopped cause my head flooded with, “Bittersweet memories, that is all I’m taking with me(note singing in my head)…”

  3. SPARKLE WAS AMAZING AND NOT BECAUSE MY SISTER WHITNEY WAS IN IT BUT IT WAS A VERY GOOD ADAPTATION OF THE ORIGINAL.. IT MADE U LAUGH AND CRY SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE ACTORS GREAT JOB ; 2THUMBS UP YALL GO CHECK IT OUT THE MUSIC WAS GREAT TOO.. AWWWWE WHITNEY I MISS U

  4. Im really pleased with the modern version of the film. It is an amazing tribute to the original. I recognized several of the original lines and appreciated the new lines. Found myself sad n angry all over again about the loss of Whitney. This movie would’ve been a welcome home party for her from every fan that sees the movie. She really came full circle and is a treasure not to be missed. Jorddan Sparks is in a word – phenomenol!! I dnt follow AI to much but I’ll b looking for her CD to add to my driving music. THANKS A MILLION Thomasina for the VIP treatment at the screening.

  5. Pretty much my thoughts exactly. Folks who love the original will be disappointed with the changes that make it less romantic/melodramatic. But for those who are unfamiliar with the original it’s a fun ride full of style and glam.

    • Absolutely agree Mike D.! Really missed the Stix/Sparkle intimate moments. Loved the early Levi/Sister moments though. Thanks for stopping by Mike and sharing ur thoughts ;).

  6. I agree with the thoughts listed regarding the film. I have to say the fact that it was Whitney’s last film role was enough to bring tissue and yes the song was awesome, Thomasena. I thought she nailed the role of the “Overly Religious” personality type mother which (on my soapbox) is really the mother living in fear of facing her own past and issues. They movie did a great job pointing out those facts out too… I am a fan of the original so I was not happy with all of the updates nonetheless appreciative of the artists work and am thankful they produced it. YES, YES, and YES I thought the beauty of the clothes and colors just the aesthetics of the cinematography was impressive. My issues with the film are perhaps in some ways is just a big pouting session bc I didn’t hear the songs I wanted to… or See the scenes I thought were relevant… IE… orig. Sparkle had to deal with the absent father issue… OK so won’t go into share all my opinions at this point it is unnecessary when IT can’t change anything the film is done and it is out… I will just have to live with it and cherish the Whitney in it. Plus the original is not hard too find if I need to I can just watch that.
