Movies Kevin Costner, below co-produced and directed the epic "Dances With Wolves," a three-hour film that is well worth the running time. Costner also stars. He plays an army man assigned to a frontier outpost where he becomes friendly with a local tribe of Indians. The film uses subtitles when the Indians speak, and the Indians get a fair shake in the film--they are no better or worse than the white characters. Violence, nudity, sex. Rating: PG-13.***
If Thanksgiving has arrived, you know it's also time for mid-season replacements to begin popping up to supplant some of the turkeys the networks started in September. Tonight, the case in point is "Broken Badges," premiering at 8 on CBS (Channel 11). It's another cop show with some variations, such as the Cajun identity of lead character Beau Jack Bowman (Miguel Ferrer) and his recruitment of officers who have been on mental health leaves. Successful producer Stephen J. Cannell is behind the show.
