She’s back. After 28 years, it sure is great to see Linda Hamilton return to the big screen again as Sarah Connor in the sci-fi action thriller “Terminator: Dark Fate.”

Hamilton is just the shot in the arm needed to ignite this movie and the franchise in general. She’s just as fearless and fierce as she was in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and wears her toughness well.

Also making a noticeable and welcome return is James Cameron who co-wrote "Terminator: Dark Fate” and produced it with David Ellison (“Star Trek Beyond” and “Annihilation”).

Then of course there’s Arnold Schwarzenegger as the old Terminator T-800 “Model 101”/Carl. He’s exceptionally funny playing a married, drapery salesman. Old Arnold needed more screen time since he and Hamilton are a dynamic duo.

Sarah Connor and Carl (Schwarzenegger) must band together to thwart a massive attack from a revolutionary Rev-9 Terminator (Gabriel Luna, TV’s “Dark Web” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”). He’s a liquid mass of destruction and has been ordered to kill a young Mexican woman named Dani (a very good Natalia Reyes, “Running with the Devil”) who works at an automotive factory in Mexico.

Dani and her brother Diego (Diego Boneta, “Monster Party”) are being protected by a half human/half cyborg super-soldier named Grace (Mackenzie Davis, “Blade Runner 2049” and TV’s “Halt and Catch Fire”). She’s been sent from the future (2042).

But, Rev-9 is virtually unstoppable. It’s going to take everything and then some to keep him from wiping out civilization. But you should never bet against Sarah Connor or an aging Terminator itching to blow things up and put on some cool shades.

The action is relentless in “Terminator: Dark Fate” and features jaw-dropping car chases, plane crashes and vicious, fighting robots.

“Terminator: Dark Fate” is quite a spectacle and pretty spectacular.

REVIEW: It must have been my recent chance meeting with former Dodger legend Dusty Baker that turned my attention to the Dodgers and baseball in particular. Then again, baseball season is right around the corner, so this review was just meant to me.

The truth is, I realized I hadn’t reviewed any baseball movies in a long time. One of my favorite...
