The Watcher"He may not always do things by the book, but I for one have learned to trust Dwight when he's got one of his feelings." That line is spoken about two thirds of the way into the pilot for "Memphis Beat" (9 p.m. Tuesday, TNT; one and a half stars) and if...
Times Staff Writer"The Sentinel" is an unassuming thriller, a nifty piece of genre filmmaking without frills or self-importance. It's a throwback, if you will, to the days of B pictures, when formula movies were made with a maximum of skill and a minimum of pretense....
Tribune movie critic2 stars (out of four) In the late 1980s Michael Douglas started sleeping with women he shouldn't--on screen, that is--and became the iconic Clinton-era movie star. The actor proved himself a durable commodity back in his "Streets of San Francisco" days...

Tribune movie reporterThe sequels and franchise flicks scored big last summer, so what do we get? More of the same this year. Check out the titles, and you might conclude that this is the year of the colon. But don't be fooled by the amount of noise generated by the highest-...
Chicago Tribune Movie Critic1-1/2 stars (out of 4) "S.W.A.T." is a cop thriller for moviegoing masochists. It's a big, near-incoherent action thriller best suited for audiences who don't mind being pummeled into submission. Technically clever but emotionally bankrupt, based on...
