Movie Diary 8/15/2012

Sparkle (Salim Akil, 2012). A remake of the 1976 Irene Cara musical scripted by Joel Schumacher – but let’s pause there for a moment. All right. Still, this movie has a few things going for it, including a strong farewell turn by Whitney Houston (albeit overshadowed by the powerhouse Carmen Ejogo). (full review 8/17)

At What a Feeling!, an Eighties flashback to the comedy duo of Nick Nolte and Martin Short, in Francis Veber’s Three Fugitives.
