Business of Film: Review of 2018
James Cameron-Wilson casts his critical eye over the cinematic highlights of 2018, a year in which musicals were to the fore, as were films directed by actors. He marvelled at the array of strong roles for women and wondered why so few male performances stood out in the year. As well as examining the winners at the UK box office, James also gives his own, personal top 10 of the year.

The Week That Was And The Week Ahead: Review of 2018
It's not been a year in the markets that many investors will remember fondly. Graham Spooner of The Share Centre looks back at the year that was 2018, highlighting some of the household names that have fallen out of favour as well as pointing out a surprising winner. Warning of value traps, he highlights some of the main influences on shares, including Brexit, trade wars and interest rates. Whether 2019 starts well or not, the advice is to drip-feed investment rather than try to call a chance in sentiment.

The Business of Film: Aquaman
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the new leader of the UK box office, Aquaman, disappointed that it beat Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to the top slot, a movie he considers far superior. He is less than impressed with Mortal Engines, debuting at #5. He points out that while only 4 films made over £40m in UK cinemas last year, this year over 8 have exceeded that take with overall attendance the highest since 1971. James also has a look at the nominations announced for the London Film Critics Circle awards.
