Brian Regan lets his haircut do the talking. In anticipation of the last game of his career, the Cherry Hill East running back is sporting a red-tinged Mohawk with a star carved into one side of his head and racing stripes on the other. "I had to do something special," Regan said as Cherry Hill East prepared for Wednesday night's showdown with Cherry Hill West in the annual crosstown Thanksgiving weekend game.

The most appealing element of "Brink," the new first-person shooter from the U.K. studio Splash Damage, is the blue. It's a vivid hue that provides an arresting contrast to the murky earth tones that usually dominate the genre, and it's a signal that this game is up to something different. Unfortunately, the blue skies and seas that surround the Ark - the floating city where the battles take place - quickly give way to a succession of cramped, generic spaces. And efforts to distinguish "Brink" (Bethesda Softworks, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99; PC, $49.99)

A likably scruffy film with a likably scruffy protagonist, Berlin Blues isn't deep - but it is tender, snappy, smart. Frank Lehmann (Christian Ulmen) works in a beer hall.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. PLEA BY PRIEST IN BRINK'S HEIST A Dublin-born priest pleaded innocent yesterday to charges he helped steal $7.4 million from a Brink's Inc. armored car, and his lawyer said British and Irish authorities were meddling in the case. The Rev. Patrick Moloney, an avowed Irish nationalist, was arraigned on one count of conspiracy and two counts of possession of stolen money. Each count carries a maximim 10-year prison sentence and $250,000 fine. The charges stem from the Brink's robbery on Jan. 5, 1993, the fifth- largest holdup of an armored-car company in U.S. history.
