"Sparkle's" Jordin Sparks, Mike Epps, & More Share Experience

It's hump day! Seemingly that's nothing to get excited about. BUT it's the Wednesday BEFORE the much anticipated film, "Sparkle," hits theaters this weekend! 

So I should tell you this is NOT a review. Press is on a muzzle clause until it comes out. Why? 'Cause our reviews can sometimes be a profit killer.

But despite our published OPINIONS, errbody and their cousin wants to see the last movie we'll ever see Whitney Houston perform in *sigh*. Yeah, I'm prepared to cry. So, if you're sitting next to me at the theater don't say nothing about the big fat tear rolling down my face when she sings.  Just pass me a tissue and keep watching the movie.

In fact, I hope we turn this into a movie going experience! You know how we do! The old schoolers and church folk will get a little dressed up to head to the theaters.  The rest of us youngsters will head out in whatever as we often do excitedly. It will kind of feel like a family reunion.  Young AND old coming out to support a wonderful movie.

And that's the beauty of it.  Those that remember the original have stories to tell and those that are seeing it for the first time, will have a whole new take on it.  Hopefully, the two generations can and will start a dialogue about music, culture, actors, etc. and really listen to each other.  Think how one generation loved Irene Cara while this generation loves Jordin Sparks.  My generation has the pleasure of experiencing both!

No need to tell you NOT to talk during the movie at the screen.  You already know the actors can't hear you. LOL. But I understand sometimes how you can get caught up and desire to tell characters what to do as if their actions have not been predetermined.  It's just what we do.  It's part of the EXPERIENCE!
  
So here's a little warm up for this weekend, 2 GREAT interviews. To start here are the lady cast members Jordin Sparks, Carmen Ejogo, and Tika Sumpter.



Now check out this GREAT interview with the men Mike Epps, Derek Luke, and Omari Hardwick. Goodness all that fineness in one little room.  *FAN ME!* But seriously out of all these gorgeous, talented men, I'm looking forward to seeing MIKE EPPS!  He's really coming into his own as a serious actor not just a comedian.
