DVD: Sparkle, ParaNorman, Elliot Loves, And More!

 

 

Sparkle
($35.99 Blu-ray, $30.99 DVD; Sony)

Set in the Motown era, this adaptation stars Jordin Sparks as a young singer who forms a Supremes-esque trio with her two sisters. But Sparkle incurs the wrath and rejection of her churchgoing mother (Whitney Houston,  who also executive produced).  It’s not without its flaws, but there are some great musical numbers and Houston’s death gives the film some added gravitas.

Extras include the 20-minute “A Tribute to Whitney Houston,” and  video for the Sparks-Houston song “Celebrate.”
