Review: 'Sparkle,' 'Expendables 2'

August 17, 2012 5:20:50 AM PDT
There are two very different movies for different audiences opening in theaters everywhere this weekend. "Sparkle" is Whitney Houston's final legacy, while "The Expendables 2" is an action movie with an aging all-star cast.

"Sparkle" stars Jordin Sparks, but it is dedicated in loving memory of Whitney Houston. Her death came a few months after she filmed her supporting role, but the sadness of her passing also gives the project a real poignancy and helps to make the release of an ordinary film an extraordinary event.

Check out entertainment reporter Sandy Kenyon's reviews of both films.
