This is a remake of 1976 movie. It takes place in the sixties with singer Jordin Sparks as Sparkle a beautiful gifted songwriter and singer if she would get over stage fright. Her acting is okay. She has two sisters Sister (played very well by Carmen Ejogo) and Dolores (Tika Sumpter) she is great and she is dark skinned and usually writers make them so ghetto but she was very smart and sensible. I hope to see these actresses in more movies.
Their mom Emma (played by the late, great Whitney Houston) doesn’t want them to sing for she tried unsuccessfully. She sings one song. Sister hooks up with the wrong man Satin, a stand -up comic (Mike Epps, Friday, The Hangover) I didn’t like his character but he may be portraying Richard Pryor in an upcoming movie. It is a good movie if you like singing but if you can wait for video do so.
RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION
The fifth of the series stars Milla Jovoich as Alice who has to save the world again. Plot really not important because they are not following the plot of the video game. The ONLY reason you should see it to see the action and there is a lot of it!! The women for the most part kicking all the ass and they are Michelle Rodriguez and Sienna Guillory. It is worth seeming on video.
I was one of the ten people who enjoyed the 1995 movie Judge Dredd starring Sly Stallone. Now the film is rebooted and it is very violent and very good. Karl Urban (Star Trek 2009) is Dredd Clint Eastwood talking, never takes his helmet off and kills for he is judge, jury and executioner!! The villain is Madeline Madrigal or short Ma-Ma (Lena Headey Game of Thrones 300) is a gangster who owns Mega City and pushes a drug “Slo-Mo” and he has to bring her down. She is malicious!! It didn’t make money and I don’t know why it is so good. It will fare better on video.
