'Terminator' returns

MOVIES "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is a sequel to the film he did in 1984. This one is not as good as the first. It may be longer. You can see where the $80 million (that's Schwarzenegger's figure) went, but most of the film is car, bike and truck crashes and special effects. The former are spectacular and the latter are awesome, but the film is not all that exciting. In the original film, Schwarzenegger was the bad cyborg, out to kill the woman who would give birth to a future savior of mankind. In the new film, he is an outer-space cyborg who is here to protect the kid, who is now about age 10. Linda Hamilton reappears as the boy's mother. Violence, language. Rating: R. **

Even in its heyday, Gang of Four was never a typical English punk band. Where most punks made a point of seeming angry and uneducated, the Gang's songs were as brainy as they were abrasive.

These days, the Gang of Four is really just a Gang of Two, as singer Jon King and guitarist Andy Gill are the only original members left. But this Gang is still worth joining. 9 p.m. Sunday, at Max's on Broadway, 735 S. Broadway. Admission is $12.50 in advance, $14.50 day of show; call (800) 448-9009 for tickets, 675-6297 for information.


Jets and Sharks

An excellent production of the musical "West Side Story" is being staged by the Maryland Arts Festival in residence at Towson State University. The Leonard Bernstein work has been admirably directed by professional artist Ken Urmston, who faithfully followed the original choreography of Jerome Robbins. Inspired by Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," the show features memorable songs and dance styles. Outstanding performances by Beth Weber as Maria and David Lee Simmons as Tony. Good supporting cast. 8 p.m. Stephens Hall. Tickets: $16. Call 830-ARTS.

After two weeks of much rain and some fine tennis, it's time for "Breakfast at Wimbledon" Sunday morning at 9 on WMAR-TV (Channel 2). The men's singles final is the scheduled event from the All-England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, and NBC's coverage features Tracy Austin, Bud Collins, Jimmy Connors, Dick Enberg, and John Tesh. Coverage has been good, with Collins staying away from such terms as "Bucharest backhand" to describe the action. Collins -- and HBO's Arthur Ashe -- are about the only commentators willing to take on the tennis establishment.

Galway in Columbia
