This is a major coup for WWE, to have Mickey Rourke in the ring at the company's marquee show. I think it's bigger than Donald Trump at WrestleMania 23 and certainly bigger than Floyd Mayweather's match last year. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

Mickey Rourke's soul is in Miami. It's home. It's where his family is. It's where he is able to make sense out of life. And, most importantly, the city is his artistic muse, an emotional oasis allowing the moody, misunderstood method actor to embrace skills neglected after filming 1987's Barfly. "l really do love Miami," said Rourke, cradling Loki, an 11-year-old miniature whippet and Chihuahua mix, his constant companion. "Miami - you can relax here." After years of therapy, Rourke said he is close to banishing most of the negative forces that crippled his life and career.

"Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" attempts to raise junk to the level of American pop myth. But this particular piece of garbage is not redeemable -- sewers stink and so does "Harley Davidson."Simon Wincer's new film tries to redo "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" in a slightly futuristic context -- the year is 1996 and the ozone layer is gone -- with motorcycles instead of horses. Wincer's good with horses in historical contexts -- he did "Phar Lap" and TV's "Lonesome Dove" -- but he takes a terrible spill here.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei. Directed by Darren Aronofsky. Released by Fox Searchlight; $29.95, Blu-ray, $39.95. **** (4 STARS) Getting a broken-down actor, savaged by time and broken almost beyond repair by his own miscalculations, to play a broken-down wrestler, savaged by time and broken almost beyond repair by his own miscalculations, was only part of the genius behind The Wrestler. The rest was not letting that be the only reason to recommend the movie. Make no mistake: Getting Mickey Rourke, his body and reputation ravaged by years of physical and emotional self-abuse, to play Randy "The Ram" Robinson, was an incredible gamble (financing was tough to come by, given Rourke's track record)

Just when you're ready to dismiss John Daly as a washout and a quitter, he reminds you why he remains appealing enough to merit a new reality TV series. (Or at least why the Golf Channel thinks he does.) Daly says stuff you'd never hear from another professional athlete. Candid stuff, like his take that Tiger Woods will return to golf sooner than most believe. "I honestly think he's not going to miss the Masters," Daly said Wednesday in a telephone interview to promote the eight-episode "Being John Daly," which debuts Tuesday.

An awful film about an awful time. Maybe The Informers is on to something. Shallow and pretentious, filled with characters who wear their vapidness like some bizarre badge of honor, The Informers thinks it has something important (or at least valid) to say about the 1980s, that decade of great self-absorption that was done in by a combination of despair, disease and plain old despicable behavior. But rather than being perceptive or even informed, it's alternately dull and disingenuous, coming across more as a smug "I told you so" than anything else.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Slumdog Millionaire, a joyous story of enduring love and unexpected riches among the lower castes of India, took home the Oscar for best picture at last night's 81st annual Academy Awards, capping an unlikely awards season for a movie that barely got released in this country. The movie, which was picked up at the last minute by Fox Searchlight Pictures, dominated the awards, winning eight of the nine categories in which it was nominated (its only loss came in the sound editing category)

The top categories in this year's Oscars are so evenly matched that many of us will applaud the winners, even if they're not our own favorites. Here's why both the Will-wins and the Should-wins have their points. Best Picture Will win: Slumdog Millionaire. To borrow a phrase from the poet Randall Jarrell, "you feel that it's happening - and to you." This film achieves immediacy and clarity in the chaotic milieu of the Mumbai slums, and creates an exhilarating experience for the audience.
