PG. 1960. Dryly hu­mor­ous take on the spy genre based on Gra­ham Greene’s novel with Alec Guin­ness as a hap­less vac­uum sales­man who is re­cruited into Bri­tish in­tel­li­gence in pre-Cas­tro Cuba. Carol Reed’s direc­tion hov­ers be­tween com­edy and thrills, not al­ways smoothly, but it’s highly en­ter­tain­ing. Grab your chance to see this sel­dom-shown clas­sic. Maureen O’Hara. 8.35pm, Show­time Two

M. 2010. Mega­mind is the most bril­liant su­pervil­lain the world has ever known – and the least suc­cess­ful. But when Metro City is threat­ened by a new vil­lain, can the world’s big­gest mind save the day? De­light­ful kids’ film with lead char­ac­ters voiced by com­edy favourites. Will Fer­rell and Tina Fey. 9.30pm, 7MATE

M. 2002. Yet an­other body-swap­ping film with hot chick Rachel McA­dams chang­ing overnight into peren­nial dud Rob Sch­nei­der and spend­ing the rest of the movie find­ing out what it’s like to be in a male body. Lit­tle that you won’t expect and a lot that you will, though re­fresh­ingly free of lava­tory jokes. Anna Faris. 10.30pm, SBS TWO

PG. 1987. Direc­tor Wim Wen­ders in­vades Frank Capra ter­ri­tory with a cere­bral tale about an an­gel who pa­trols Ber­lin watch­ing and lis­ten­ing to mor­tals. When he falls in love with a trapeze artist, he must some­how make the tran­si­tion to mor­tal­ity. Whim­si­cal and beau­ti­fully shot. Bruno Ganz. ANS of The Voice will have only one day to lodge votes for their favourite con­tes­tant be­tween the fi­nal two shows of the Nine Net­work’s tal­ent quest.

Dur­ing the se­ries view­ers have been given a week to down­load songs on iTunes or vote on Face­book, SMS and tele­phone for their favourite per­former.

Each down­load on iTunes is worth two votes to the artist, while votes made via the in­ter­net, mo­bile phone or land­lines are worth one.

The penul­ti­mate show will be held on Sun­day, June 17 and vot­ers will have un­til the fol­low­ing day to vote. The win­ner of The Voice will be an­nounced on Mon­day night.

It will be bat­tle of rat­ings on that Sun­day when The Voice goes up against the live three­hour fi­nale of Danc­ing With The Stars on the Seven Net­work.

Next Mon­day, June 11, coaches Keith Ur­ban and Joel Mad­den will have their teams re­duced from four to two.

In the other teams Ade­laide teenager and book­mak­ers’ favourite Rachael Leah­car and Glenn Cun­ning­ham are the artists left in Delta Goodrem’s team, while Seal has Karise Eden and Fatai Vea­mata­hau still un­der his guid­ance.

Once the team of Ur­ban and Mad­den are fi­nalised, the re­main­ing eight singers will per­form and only the re­spec­tive coaches will de­cide which one of their pro­teges will ad­vance to the fi­nal on June 17.

View­ers will ul­ti­mately de­ter­mine who wins the con­test, which car­ries $100,000 in prize money and a record­ing contract.

Mon­day, 7.30pm, Nine, NBN.

Judge Joel Mad­den
