What do you get when you mix the anti-vowel (McG) director of “Charlie’s Angels,” with the anti-character, anti-plot writers of “Catwoman?”  “Terminator Salvation,” of course.  How bad is it?  You’ll have to listen to the dizzying, time-travel-laden podcast to find out!  Also, “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” is yet another example of […]
