SPARKLE (Remake) (2012)

One of the first video reviews i did. Since it was recently released on DVD i dedided the time was right for a update review. I will also say that Derek luke seems a little too old to play the role here. In general he is stuck playing love interests who are saintly. The film was originally Set to star Aaliyah.
