    Black Comedy Gem, 'It's A Disaster'

    An offbeat little gem of a black-comedy, It's a Disaster is the kind of film that plays much better than it sounds like it should. It's another end-of-the-world (maybe) ensemble piece, but the deft writing and directing by Todd Berger and the straight-faced comic acting by America Ferrera, David ...

    Review: Brandon Does David Proud, 'Antiviral' A Classic Cronenberg Freak Fest

    There is no doubt that no matter what Brandon Cronenberg decided to make as his first movie, the shadow of his father would loom large.
