Review – Atlanta : Season 2 (2018)

Look What Donald Glover is Whippin’ Up in Season 2 of ‘ATLANTA’

by Nile Fortner

Donald Glover a.k.a Childish Gambino has been blowing up bigger than ever in the mainstream with his “This is America” music video and with his take on the iconic Star Wars character Lando in Solo: A Star Wars Story, a role that was originally played by Billy Dee Williams. Donald Glover also gave us a new season of the hit FX show Atlanta. Much like Glover, the cast of Atlanta has been blowing up as well, with Zazie Beetz as Domino in the recent film Deadpool 2 and Get Out star Lakeith Stanfield most recently in the new film, Sorry to Bother You.

Another Wolfcop – Interview with Lowell Dean and Leo Fafard

by Logan Myerz

When it comes to sequels, especially in the horror genre, the second installment can either make or break the franchise. There have been many films that surpass the original in many ways, such as Evil Dead 2, The Conjuring 2, and even Aliens. And many films that killed off the franchise before it really took off, such as Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows. As a filmmaker, it’s a chance you take to continue with the storyline and capturing what happens to the characters in the next chapter.  Do they live or do they die? More importantly, does the sequel capture the chemistry and tones that made the original movie so compelling?

I had the chance to interview the director, Lowell Dean, and the alcoholic werewolf himself, Leo Fafard, about Another Wolfcop, the sequel to the 2014 underground smash hit Wolfcop. With a title like this and the films poster (a take on Sly Stallone’s Cobra), you know you’re in for some laughs, thrills, and a downright good time. Another Wolfcop is a sequel film that I’ve been awaiting since the original and can honestly say I enjoyed it more than the first movie. Today, I spoke with Lowell Dean about the continuation in this franchise, the challenges, and the process of making a sequel film.  And with Leo, I found out what it’s like playing a werewolf, being doused in buckets of blood, and being banned from the U.S.

Review – Deadpool 2 (2018)

by Armando Vanegas

Ryan Reynolds is back as Deadpool (aka Wade Wilson) in Deadpool 2, the sequel to the hit movie. The good thing is that it’s the same as it was before, but has some more to offer this time around. If you want it to be more than a fun take on the superhero genre and expect something deeper, then you might be disappointed. The movie pretty much does what you expect in terms of it’s humor and style, but it also attempts to be more than that, which works to varying degrees.
