Yes, that really was actor Woody Harrelson tooling around Baltimore on a bike Friday afternoon. Master illusionist David Blaine was in tow, according to Joe Traill, the owner of Joe's Bike Shop in Fells Point. Traill said that Harrelson has been a customer of his ever since he came in Baltimore in 2011 to film "Game Change. " "I think a bike is his preferred mode of transport around the city," Traill said. But, he said, this was the first time Blaine had ever been inside the shop.

Actor Woody Harrelson, who recently joined with local financier John "Jack" Dwyer to purchase the Inn at the Black Olive, will be in town July 27 to co-host a charity dinner at the Fells Point hotel and restaurant. Harrelson, an Emmy winner and Oscar nominee, will host the dinner, along with Dwyer, chairman of the family of Capital Funding companies in Baltimore, and Dimitris Spiliadis, whose family opened the hotel and restaurant in 2011. They lost it to foreclosure last summer, but Spiliadis remains as manager of the Black Olive, which bills itself as "Baltimore's most organic hotel and restaurant.

Transsiberian is the quintessence of what critic Judith Crist affectionately refers to as a movie-movie: a picture that breathes entertainment through every celluloid sprocket hole while seeming, without affect or pomposity, to encapsulate the entirety of film history. A queasy-making train thriller directed with vibrant visual panache by Brad Anderson, Transsiberian stars Woody Harrelson and Emily Mortimer as Roy and Jessie, a married couple who regrettably opt for the picturesque route back home after two weeks of Christian fellowship work in China.

Actor Woody Harrelson, known for his characters in the TV show "Cheers" and movies such as "No Country for Old Men" and "The Hunger Games," has a new role: landlord of Fells Point's Inn at the Black Olive. The celebrity joined John "Jack" Dwyer, chairman of the family of Capital Funding companies in Baltimore, in a 50-50 venture to purchase the property for $4.5 million in January after being connected by Dimitris Spiliadis, whose family opened the 12-room hotel in 2011 and lost it to foreclosure last summer.

In a career filled with wonderful performances, Julianne Moore gives what may be her best in The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio, as a 1950s housewife and mother who raises a family on the strength of her ability to write catchy advertising jingles that win contests. What makes Moore's performance so remarkable is that she has to play an idealized mother, warm, nurturing, patient, smart, perfect in every way imaginable - especially in comparison to her worthless husband (Woody Harrelson)

Just what the world needs: Another bowling movie!Much funnier than "Those Wacky Ten-pins," but not nearly as funny as "Strikes, Spares and Tons o' Fun!," here's the one about the one-handed bowler and the Amish kid and the gal with real big, uh, attitude.Conceived and directed and produced by the same idiots who brought you "Dumb and Dumber," this one is dim and dimmer. No, it's not. I just said that because I thought it was kind of funny. This one is actually not as funny as "Dumb and Dumber," but still, it's pretty funny.

North Country, the fictionalized story of the first class-action sexual harassment suit in the United States, engulfs you in the tingling snow-swept vistas of northern Minnesota. Shot with unpretentious eloquence by the legendary Chris Menges, they slap you to attention and at times lift your spirits even when you're watching dispirited women and dispiriting men tramp through these wide-open, densely textured landscapes. With the songs of Bob Dylan (a Hibbing, Minn., native) keening on the soundtrack, and Charlize Theron and Frances McDormand defrosting their emotions and acting their hearts out as (respectively)

"Play It to the Bone" is Ron Shelton on autopilot. Shelton, the gifted writer-director of such sports-as-life mainstays as "Bull Durham," "White Men Can't Jump" and "Tin Cup," loves making films where the jocks do battle with words as much as with their muscles. At his best -- and films don't come much better than 1988's "Bull Durham," where Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon made baseball seem exciting, intellectual and sexy -- the results are lighthearted, character-driven valentines to the ethos of sport, propelled by literate scripts that reveal as much about the people who engage in sports as about the sports themselves.

All those die-hard fans who said they'd enjoy watching Will Smith read a phone book, beware: As Ben Thomas, a renegade IRS agent struggling for spiritual redemption, he spends a lot of time reading names in Seven Pounds, and it isn't rewarding or enjoyable as elocution or drama. Seven Pounds is a worrying kind of a debacle for a superstar like Smith. Making a movie that's meant to be a stretch, he actually contracts. I thought last summer's misfit superhero movie Hancock was disappointing and self-destructive (loved the first half, hated the second)

ANTIBES, France-- --Hearing Keanu Reeves imitate a Jewish grandmother might surprise you. Hearing him talk about staying in one place is downright shocking. "Oy, you get older, you want to settle down," the famously itinerant actor says, sounding more like a bad Catskills comic. Reeves, 41, is in a place that many of us would like to be: stinking rich -- thanks to his 15 percent take of Matrix sequel ticket sales. He has not worked in a year, content to watch the fruits of his labor hit the screen this summer: the time-travel romantic drama The Lake House, which opens today, and the sci-fi adaptation of A Scanner Darkly coming next month.

A common complaint in cinematic circles is how difficult it is to get a movie made these days. "Palmetto" suggests that it might be all too easy.Someone could have told screenwriter E. Max Frye to go back to his day job. Volker Schlondorff's better angels might have deterred the director, whose credits include the searingly powerful war drama "The Tin Drum," from attaching himself to Frye's ridiculous script. The agents, new-best-friends and pool boys that serve as gurus to the stars might have advised such promising talents as Woody Harrelson, Elisabeth Shue, Gina Gershon, Chloe Sevigny and Michael Rapaport to pass.

"Indecent Proposal," the slick new Adrian Lyne film, asks: Is everything for sale? The answer it gives is: Yes, except good screenplays.Largely, it's a gloss on a mean old story that used to make the rounds:Millionaire at a party goes up to a woman, says, "Would yousleep with me for a million dollars?" She says, "Yes." He says, "Would you sleep with me for $50?" She says, "What do you think I am, a whore?" He says, "We've already established that. Now we're haggling on the price."In this case, it's debonair Robert Redford making the pitch, without the haggling.
