Review – BlacKkKlansman (2018)

by Armando Vanegas

It’s a been a bittersweet time in this country that’s been mostly bitter in ways thanks to the current political state here in America. However, part of what’s been sweet about this year is that whether it’s coincidence or not, a lot of black voices have been able to get a chance to express themselves in such original ways as Black Panther, Sorry to Bother You, Atlanta, and now Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. For the most part, Lee succeeds with what he attempts to put on the screen. It’s a Spike Lee movie so you can definitely say that it’s not boring. The plot of the movie concerning Colorado Springs’ first black police officer in the 1970’s posing as a prospective KKK member who then recruits a Jewish officer to pose as the member in person to infiltrate the Klan. This is pretty unusual and to the movie’s credit, it does a lot with it by using it as a springboard to comment on recent political issues or social commentary that concerns the black community that may have been said before, but needs to reiterated for those who still aren’t able to get the message. For the most part, it never bothered me because it seems to come from a genuine place. While Lee is still Lee, this seem to be more mature and relatively calm to his other movies in its approach to its many ideas. It’s still very ambitious and maybe has too much to say. But it’s at least got some verve to it that I admire for bringing something to the table that will inspire some great food for thought, while simultaneously being an entertaining time at the movies.

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.
