In so many ways, we've seen C-12: Final Resistance before. Its post-apocalyptic urban settings where cars and buildings have been bombed out. Its alien invaders who think people are the other white meat. And the men-turned-into-cyborg soldiers that creep out the survivors of the apocalypse. Despite the familiar sights and themes, there's much to praise about C-12, one of the better games developed recently for the aging Sony PlayStation, as more visually appealing games are developed for the PlayStation 2.

Saying you like a brutal franchise picture like Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines because of the grace notes probably sounds as persuasive as saying you buy Maxim for the articles. But that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Jonathan Mostow, who directed the estimable genre pictures Breakdown and U-571, brings some welcome gusts of humor and a smidgen of humanity to T3. Still, he can't cut loose from crash-and-dash chases and robot-crushing wrestling matches that for some of us turned tedious even in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The good news is that Schwarzenegger is more entertaining than ever as the Terminator T-101 cyborg.

Tonight, ABC goes to the dogs, and the cats, with back-to-back specials on "Lassie" and lions. The fact that nothing else is of greater interest tonight suggests just how little interest you should have in TV this evening.* "Lassie Unleashed: 260 Dog Years in TV" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 13) -- Much as I loved "Lassie" as a kid, I can't drum up much enthusiasm for this latest anniversary special. It's true, though, that the black-and-white reruns still charm many kids, including mine. It's only when you're grown up that you notice how many of Lassie's whimpers are overdubbed.

Woman Thou Art Loosed Rated R; *** Hate and forgiveness, the destructive power of the former and the uplifting power of the latter, are the cornerstones of Woman Thou Art Loosed, a largely effective morality play about an abused girl who never gets over the poison inflicted on her preadolescent soul. Michelle Jordan (Kimberley Elise) is introduced shooting a gun during a worship service led by the charismatic Bishop T.D. Jakes (a real-life minister, and author of the book on which this film is based)

ARNOLD Schwarzenegger has more or less got it made. At the moment, he is enjoying the perquisites of super stardom, so if you ask him what he hopes ''Terminator 2: Judgment Day'' will do for him, he says he isn't that concerned about it. He wants it to be a hit, of course, but he doesn't expect to send his career in any particular direction. Straight ahead is good enough.''I'm not concerned about what it will do for me,'' he said. ''I don't have to be as concerned about stepping stones as I was in 1984 when the first 'Terminator' appeared.
