Contains the classic Schwarzenegger films TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES and PUMPING IRON 25TH ANNIVERSARY.

TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES: A decade has passed since John Connor (Nick Stahl) helped prevent Judgment Day and save mankind from mass destruction. Now 25, Connor lives "off the grid" - no home, no credit cards, no cell phone and no job. No record of his existence. No way he can be traced by Skynet - the highly developed network of machines that once tried to kill him and wage war on humanity. Until, out of the shadows of the future steps the T-X (Kristaana Loken), Skynet's most sophisticated cyborg killing machine yet. Sent back through time to complete the job left unfinished by her predecessor, the T-1000, this machine is as relentless as her human guise is beautiful. Now Connor's only hope for survival is the Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), his mysterious former assassin. Together, they must triumph over the technologically superior T-X and forestall the looming threat of Judgment Day, or face the apocalypse and the fall of civilization as we know it.

PUMPING IRON 25TH ANNIVERSARY: Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the exciting Pumping Iron, the box office blockbuster that elevated body building from freak show to art form and launched Schwarzenegger's mega-superstar career. Schwarzenegger is mesmerizing and ruthless as he psyches out competitors, including Lou "The Hulk" Ferrigno, Franco Columbo and Mike Katz in his quest for a sixth straight Mr Olympia title. Surprising backstage and off-sight scenes reveal why the muscle warriors are seduced by the sport and how they and their families are consumed with defeating the Champion of Champions, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"[Terminator] The effects in T3 are spectacular, and the action sequences--particularly the fights between the good and bad terminators--are exhilarating.   Jack Matthews, New York Daily News

Editor's Note
T3 - Returning for a third bout of cyborg time travelling, Arnold Schwarzenegger reprises his good-robot role from TERMINATOR 2, once again travelling back from the future to protect future human resistance leader John Connor (played this time around by Nick Stahl). We soon discover that Connor has become something of a drifter, his mother Sarah Connor has passed away, and he has taken to the road in order to preserve himself for his supposed destiny. When Connor breaks into a lab to score some painkillers, he unwittingly runs into his future belle Kate Brewster (Claire Danes), and a whole load of titanium-plated-trouble in the form of a hot female Terminator played by newcomer Kristanna Loken. Hell-bent on destroying Connor, Brewster, and anyone else that gets in her way, Loken's Terminator comes face to face with Schwarzenegger's Terminator leading to some epic battles between the two cyborgs, and a neat string of one-liners from Schwarzenegger.

Director Jonathan Mostow (U-571) clearly relishes upping the CGI ante for this explosive sequel, providing some no-holds-barred action sequences. Mostow also offers intriguing storylines continued from the previous two films, delighting fans of the franchise. In the chaotic final sequences Schwarzenegger warns "she'll be back," hinting that there's more Terminator frenzy to come in the not-too-distant future.

PUMPING IRON - Behind-the-scenes bodybuilding activity is the theme of this semi-documentary on World Bodybuilding competition. When the film was first released, it became a surprisingly huge box office success, and helped to spawn the career of future Hollywood action superstar--and six-time Mr. Olympia--Arnold Schwarzenegger. Also features notable figures such as Lou Ferrigno, Franco Columbu, and Mike Katz.
