Went up to the Village last night to see Sparkle...and it wasn't very good. The story is a cliche, of course, and while Whitney Houston was obviously tryin' to restart a career before her death, her character's gospel solo seemed out of place & pointless to me.

Came in early today to see C&JF this afternoon. And it was a pretty good movie. I think that, if nothin' else, at least its honest, and it does a good job of showin' how a romance can turn out in reality, not just in movies.

Got a plan to see quite a few movies over the next few days, 'cause I have a lot of time off from work...

- edit, to add -

Wound up with the night off, so I went to the Drafthouse South Lamar to see Cosmopolis, which has Robert Pattinson as a wealthy tycoon in NYC who conducts business, pleasure & medical issues all while in the back of a white stretch limo. The dude who played the Blob in X-Men Origins: Wolverine plays his bodyguard.

Such a dull, lifeless movie. The characters all speak in this flat monotone, and there's no emotion at all to what they have to say to or about each other. And there's no background noise...which makes sense for a soundproof limo, but still, it just adds to the dullness of the dialogue.

Robert Pattinson should just take his Twimoney & go away.
