Christian Bale's rant against the cinematographer who stepped into his sight lines during the filming of Terminator Salvation might have been unforgivable, but it is understandable, especially after you see the pounding and lugubrious finished film. Some actors gas on about dates and sports or crack abysmal jokes but click into character as soon as the director calls "Action!" Others live their characters even during lunch. Early on, Bale received tons of admiring press for being one of the latter.

Navy's lacrosse season is still fairly young. Despite a 3-2 overall record and a 2-1 mark in the Patriot League, the team still has eight regular-season games to play and either hone its resume for the NCAA tournament or begin the offseason in May. But make no mistake that the Midshipmen have warmed up to their first wining record in the conference since March 30, 2012 when that squad was 3-2 in the Patriot League despite a 9-4 loss to Lehigh....

When writer-director James Cameron makes an action/science-fiction/thriller -- like, say, "The Terminator" or "Aliens" or "The Abyss" -- he's not content to play safely within the conventions of the genre.Each time out, Cameron twists, stretches and punches through the boundaries of the form."I think it's essential," Cameron said. "Why would people go and pay to see something they've already seen? A film should transport you in some way."In "The Terminator," Cameron transported audiences to 2029, where a deadly cyborg is sent back in time to assassinate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton)

Extreme machines meet ultimate fighters in Terminator Salvation. That may be a "money line" for some people. But for the rest of us, this fourth Terminator film is the ultimate heavy-metal parody. Better make that travesty, because there are next to no moments of comedy. The producers and screenwriters had the idea to pick up the Terminator saga after Judgment Day - the moment of reckoning between mankind and the Skynet computers and machines. The director, McG, had the opportunity to create a vision of human scavengers creating ramshackle villages and defense zones out of post-apocalyptic detritus.

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.
