12 August 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Will the former England striker keep his promise to present the season’s first episode of Match of the Day in his undies?

Not since Celia Johnson laid eyes on Trevor Howard has the nation been so captivated by a brief encounter. But the anticipation will finally come to an end on Saturday night when Gary Lineker, in front of a likely audience of more than 4 million people, presents Match of the Day in his underpants.

The Classic Film Series returns with Brief Encounter

13 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Some of Hollywood’s best love stories are the ones that never pan out. From Casablanca to Titanic to Brokeback Mountain, we can’t get enough of lovers who are never meant to be together.

In director David Lean’s 1945 masterpiece Brief Encounter it’s placid housewife Laura Jesson (Celia Johnson) and married doctor Alec Harvey (Trevor Howard) who spark up a romance in a dreary train station. Their chemistry is immediate, and we desperately want them to run off together, but their deep-rooted goodness and middle-class British morals hold them back.

Brief Encounter reminds us that love doesn’t always lead to happiness and all we can do is cherish the heartbreak.

Brief Encounter screens as part of Cineplex’s Classic Film Series on June 19th, 22nd and 27th. Go to Cineplex.com/Events for times and locations.

Death Becomes Her (Scream Factory) What is it? Madeline (Meryl Streep) and Helen (Goldie Hawn) have been rivals for years, but their biggest face-off comes after a desperate Madeline takes a potion in a bid to look and feel young again. It makes her immortal — right before she falls down the stairs and breaks her neck. She can’t die, but her body can take a beating, and even in her undead state she once again finds herself in competition with Helen. Why buy it? Director Robert Zemeckis is clearly at home with this blackly comic, Tales from the Crypt-like feature that deftly mixes laughs, gruesome deeds, and cutting edge (for 1992) special effects. Streep and Hawn are both terrific, but Bruce Willis more than holds his own (and delivers one of his best performances) as a beleaguered husband with a »
