"Renegades" (citywide), a shamelessly contrived, ultraviolent macho fantasy, stars Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips, who are too talented and too successful to be wasting themselves on such trash. Sutherland plays a maverick undercover Philadelphia cop who has infiltrated a ring of jewel thieves. For absolutely no discernible reason except to further the plot, its icily lethal ringleader (Rob Knepper), while making his escape, steals a lance sacred to the Lakota Sioux on display as part of a gallery exhibition of Lakota arts and crafts.

"Sabotage" is an appropriate title for the new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, since its many action and suspense elements are routinely undermined by a sloppy assemblage. A hyperviolent tale from complicated-cop chronicler David Ayer ("Training Day," "End of Watch"), the film is about a renegade DEA task force whose members are mysteriously eliminated one by one in the wake of a botched cartel takedown. "Sabotage" was designed to give the grizzled ex-governor, playing the group's veteran leader, a shoot'em-up vehicle bolstered by Ayer's patented macho realism.
The run and shoot was reduced to a squirt. Bakersfield College, avenging two consecutive losses to Valley, held the Monarchs' rapid-paced offense to only 61 total yards en route to a 25-7 victory in a Western State Conference interdivision game Saturday night at Valley.

This Jeep's been studying abroad. The hardy American brand -- owned by Italian automaker Fiat -- used Tuesday's 2014 Geneva Motor Show to unveil the all-new 2015 Renegade compact crossover SUV. The small, boxy crossover will slot below Jeep's popular, budget-oriented Patriot in terms of size. But expect it to target a more premium buyer who might also look at quirky models like the Kia Soul or Nissan Juke. PHOTOS: Jeep's all-new Renegade "The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade expands the brand's portfolio and targets the rapidly expanding small SUV segment around the globe," Mike Manley, Jeep's chief executive, said in a statement announcing the vehicle.

President Reagan greeted more than 100 renegades from the Democratic Party with a "Welcome aboard--welcome home," and said their switch to the GOP represents "a national movement that is sweeping the electorate."
Don't expect to see Jim Debiase shaken up over a measly leadoff double. After being greeted with a two-bagger by Bakersfield College's Gibar Bradshaw to start the game, Debiase worked eight outstanding innings as Pierce pounded the Renegades, 10-2, in a Western State Conference South Division baseball game Tuesday. The freshman right-hander from Chatsworth High allowed three hits and struck out seven.
The Southwest College football team trailed 12th-ranked Bakersfield, 14-8, at halftime Saturday afternoon, but three consecutive second-half fumbles by the Cougars helped the Renegades to a 33-14 Western State Conference victory. Bakersfield (7-1-1) converted each of the fumbles into scores. Two plays after Southwest's Nathan Preston fumbled a punt, Bakersfield's Angus Sumlin scored on a one-yard run.
With a rake at the end of his pitching arm and a dejected look on his face, Clint Marcus dragged the dirt as he tidied up the pitching mound Saturday at Valley College. Perhaps he was just trying to cover his tracks. Or just digging for answers. Either way, it was lonely labor for Marcus, who had just been worked over by Bakersfield, which won its seventh consecutive game by beating Valley, 11-6, in a Western State Conference South Division baseball game.

As the Beatles and the Backstreet Boys jockey at the top of the album sales chart, another band strikes a chord in the Southland--favorite sons Rage Against the Machine, whose "Renegades" figures to be their last studio album with departed singer Zack de la Rocha, entered the Southern California chart at No. 3, and No. 14 nationally.

Director-cinematographer Lotfy Nathan takes a decidedly judgment-free approach to the provocative characters and situations in his urban documentary "12 O'Clock Boys. " Good thing? Maybe. But some viewers may not prove as neutral as they consider this unvarnished, kinetic, often disturbing portrait of illegal dirt bikers in inner-city Baltimore. For three years, starting in 2010, Nathan follows a brash kid named Pug, who's 13 at the start. His goal is to join the controversial local dirt-bike group called the 12 O'Clock Boys, so-named for driving their bikes straight up like the hands of a clock.

A pair of flamingos might be the last to leave Betfair Hollywood Park when the Inglewood racetrack finally closes Sunday. The bright pink birds were supposed to make the move to Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero last week with 10 other flamingos that lived in the infield lake at the 75-year-old track. But when a crew from Los Angeles Zoo arrived to capture them, five stealthy birds were able to flee through a hole in the mesh trap. “It's not very easy to round up birds,” said Susie Kasielke , curator or birds at the L.A. Zoo. “They get panicky and try to run out.”    On a second attempt, zoo officials were able to wrangle up three of the escapees.

Walking the Renegade Craft Fair at the Los Angeles State Historic Park is a little like experiencing an alfresco Etsy convention. More than 200 independent designers take a break from their small online shops and set up booths where you can see their handmade wares in person. The summer installment of Renegade at the L.A. park near Chinatown promises the usual design fodder -- original paintings and prints, wooden cutting boards, pottery, tea towels, jewelry, clothing and hand-screened pillows like the ones by Cotton & Flax above.

TEHRAN - The reform movement that took to the streets to protest alleged vote-rigging in Iran's last presidential election has been crushed. The supreme leader has made it clear that such behavior will not be tolerated this time. But that doesn't mean the maneuvering to replace Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in an election set for June 14 has been without intrigue. Ahmadinejad, who was reelected in the disputed 2009 balloting, is barred by law from seeking a third term and is publicly promoting a trusted aide to replace him. It is far from clear, however, whether the president's preferred successor will even be allowed to run. For much of the outside world, the incumbent remains the defiant face of the Iranian theocracy.

Christina Winkelmann's booth at the Renegade Craft Fair in L.A. this weekend showcased her holiday wreaths made of vintage Christmas ornaments, but it was her recycled bingo-card gift wrap that had shoppers lined up. The Los Feliz crafter seemed downright embarrassed that so many fairgoers were charmed by something that was more marketing genius than personal artistic expression. Winkelmann said the bingo cards truly were recycled -- picked up during visits to Grandma out in the desert.

Renegades, indeed. The Westlake-based girls' club team known as the Renegades went to the recent Volleyball Festival in Davis, Calif., with one objective. "To play at center court and, obviously, try to win it," Coach Bill O'Neill said. They did and, well, they did. The Renegades topped Laguna Beach in the final of the 16-and-under division, played before more than 8,000 fans. "There wasn't a dry eye in the place for the parents," O'Neill said. "And the kids were ecstatic."

Aug. 16, 1920: Justice Department officials declared war on a band of "outlaw" goats in Angeles National Forest, and the U.S. attorney's office filed a lawsuit against owners of a forest herd. Meanwhile, a forest ranger said he had shot and killed seven of the remaining renegade goats. "The 'outlaws' were among those left behind when the federal government recently ousted Mrs. Hyrel C. Gill and others from the forest for conducting a goat farm there," The Times reported.

It was an unlikely setting for a bike race. But as night fell Saturday, more than 2,000 spectators filed into the 2nd Street tunnel in downtown Los Angeles to cheer on riders. With their heads down and legs pumping as fast as they would go, the cyclists blazed through the tunnel in pairs at a pace that reached well over 30 miles per hour. The best of the riders didn't even have brakes - slowing down was not their concern. "You just give it all you can, just pedal as fast as you can," said 29-year-old Mike "The Cheetah" Chitjian of Monterey Park, who was one of about 200 participants.

EVENTS If you want to see just where those jokes on IFC's "Portlandia" about "putting a bird on it" came from, take a look at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend. And while you'll surely see all sorts of screened and embroidered images of owls and sparrows on useful and decorative items being sold by individual artisans in against a backdrop of food trucks, what you'll also see is genuine, DIY artistry in jewelry, clothing and crafts that won't only inspire you to buy a few things, it might send you on a path of putting a bird on some creations of your own as well.
