Poarkle was nominated for Best Movie at the BET Awards. You're right, it does speak volumes. See ya!

SMDH.The relevance of the BET Awards? I'd guess Whitney's Lifetime Achievement Award from them is irrelevant too? And on top of that, she was their first recipientYou told Draug that Sparkle was so bad that even the NAACP Awards and BET ignored it; but when he told you BET did nominate it, you called it irrelevant? Really? So Whitney's last film is irrelevant for being nominated too?I saw the point Draug was making with the thread which is a good one and a eye opener. BN and Sparkle are basically on the same formula: two all-black-cast musicals, with small budgets; BN has a more recognizable cast as a whole (including 2 Academy Award Winners and a Academy Award Nominee vs Sparkle (outside of Whitney), yet it has very poor projected #s vs Sparkle.On top of that, the cast of BN is EVERYWHERE promoting this film. It all makes sense. The point is to show how even with a award winning all-star cast, does not negate to box office success, yet we have Sparkle - where the top money-draw persona passed away (Whitney) - not being here to promote the film, still did better #s than the film who has a bigger, more relevant cast (as a whole).

But I saw NO trailer on T.V, no posters/flyers around, no nothing. Around 40 people went to see it in my hometown & that was it. I was personally handing out flyers in the city centre to people advertising Sparkle because NOBODY had any idea it was even released or even knew it was being remade since the original movie wasn't popular here either. It was released in just ONE cinema in my city & stayed on the screens for 5 days... that's why the movie didn't do so well. Whitney's acting was really good, Jordin's was good & I couldn't see past Mike Epps as a comedian so I couldn't believe his character. I think they could of picked a better Sister (Tammy) acting wise & probably could of picked a better singer to play that role. But overall I think it was a good movie which is majorly underrated

I saw Black Nativity last night. There were about 10 people in the theater. Overall, I enjoyed the movie and liked the music. But it was slow in some parts and not much of a story line. It was great seeing Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Forrest Whitaker and the other African-american actors and performers on the big screen. We have to support these movies if we want quality films starring African-american people to be made.
