If you had any doubts that Arnold Schwarzenegger would make a slick politician, take a look at HBO Video's ''Pumping Iron: The 25th Anniversary Special Edition'' (PG, 85 mins.), in which the Austrian Oak uses his bulging charisma to psych out a young Lou Ferrigno for the Mr. Olympia title (extras include outtakes and a recent Cinemax doc on the doc). ''Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines'' (R, 109 mins., Warner) was this summer's most surprisingly satisfying actioner, featuring a killer car chase and an ending both eerie and original. Plus, listen to Arnold on the commentary track: ''This scene with the enlargement of the breasts was fantastic.... It's a whole new concept. Because there are some guys that like little breasts and there are some guys that like big breasts.'' Um, anyway, also out now: Columbia TriStar's two-pack release of big blow-up parody ''Last Action Hero'' (PG-13, 130 mins., 1993) and futuristic cloning caper ''The 6th Day'' (PG-13, 124 mins., 2000) -- the former not as awful as originally thought (fans just didn't appreciate being let in on the joke that most action movies are shameless cliche collages), while the latter is a mess from start to finish.
