    The Matter-of-Fact Multiculturalism of 'Turbo'

    The reviews for Turbo, DreamWorks' animated tale of a snail with a dream to race in the Indy 500, are in, and for the most part, well, "lukewarm" would be overselling them. As City Weeklys Scott Renshaw put it on Twitter, "Turbo strives for nothing, says nothing, accomplishes nothing. It's not 'bad....

    REVIEW: Dreamworks "Turbo"

    Review: 'Copperhead' Is A Slow-Moving, Predictable, But Worthy Civil War Drama

    A Civil War movie without a battle scene is like…wait, what? A Civil War movie without a battle scene?! That is “Copperhead,” a sincere, slow-moving, occasionally successful film devoted to one specific homefront story. That, in itself, is noteworthy.
