The Business of Film: A Haunting in Venice, The Equalizer 3, The Sound of Freedom & El Conde

The Business Of Film

The Business of Film: A Haunting in Venice, The Equalizer 3, The Sound of Freedom & El Conde
James Cameron-Wilson takes Simon Rose through the latest box office chart where Agatha Christie adaptation A Haunting in Venice is #1. However, James found it dreary, dragging the Whodunnit back to the Middle Ages. He much preferred The Equalizer 3 at #3 with Denzel Washington; although violent it's a thriller with character and atmosphere. He found The Sound of Freedom, about modern-day child slavery, well-made but an essential watch for the subject matter, which has obsessed him since, as has the fact that the film was blocked for five years. He found El Conde on Netflix, imagining General Pinochet as an aged vampire, a jaw-dropping curiosity.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Flying cars & mass-produced humanoid robots, a desk bike & a folding e-bike
Steve Caplin celebrates the arrival of a flying car, though with a slow terrestrial speed. He also looks at modular jets, how electric planes could be powered by lasers on the ground, at the first mass-produced humanoid robot, at a desk bike that keeps you fit while powering your devices, at Honda's ebike that folds into a briefcase and at the development of a flexible soft robot that can heal like a living organism and even self destruct into an oily puddle (thanks of course to diphenyliodonium hexafluorophosphate).

The Bigger Picture: Sunak's Net Zero U-turn, Liz Truss's speech, HS2 and the Horizon scheme
Political commentator Mike Indian discusses Rishi Sunak's U-turn on Net Zero, feeling it might be a sensible idea for the long-term but clearly done for political short-term reasons, using Net Zero as an issue to drive a wedge between Conservatives and Labour. Liz Truss's recent speech is an indication that the party is in trouble. He feels that, although the government should stick to its guns on HS2, there is plenty to be done elsewhere on infrastructure. He ends with the good news of the UK rejoining the Horizon Scheme, which he considers should be of benefit to the country.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, U-PHARSIN
Here is our 'writing on the wall': the clearest evidence yet that sea temperatures are undermining the Antarctic. Let's not turn a blind eye and follow the mistakes which destroyed the Libyan city of Derna, whose leaders failed to heed their warnings. The total area of missing sea-ice at the height of the southern hemisphere winter is five times the area of the United Kingdom: no-one can justify denial of global warming in the face of this clear evidence. The catastrophic flooding of Derna should therefore be a wake-up call for us all — don't let climate change get out of control. Background music: 'Ether Oar' by The Whole Other Image source: BBC

This Is Money: Should we keep the triple lock or come up with a better pension plan?
If the triple lock is stuck to, the state pension should rise by 8.5% next April. That will be an inflation-busting rise but a promise is a promise - and the triple lock is meant to be a cast iron guarantee that the state pension will rise by either 2.5%, average wages, or inflation. Except it's already been unpicked once and arguing about whether the government can wriggle out of it has become an annual event. It's expensive and paid for by current workers, but the triple lock has improved the state pension - and one day those workers should get that payout themselves. Yet, has it run its course and is it time for a better policy than the triple lock? Georgie Frost, Sam Barker and Simon Lambert debate the triple lock and whether to keep it. Plus, why is Facebook Marketplace such a wild west for consumers and what happened when we tried to set up our own (fake) scam? Santander's cracking 5.2% easy access savings deal was pulled this week. The team discuss whether another account will come close in future and why those who signed up to This is Money's savings alerts didn't miss out. And finally, a reader has viewed 40 homes for sale but not found one they like. What should they do?

The Hypnotist: The Impact of Inspiration
Many people have big dreams and amazing ideas, but we all know how easy it is for them to be eclipsed by everyday concerns. Great plans are often sabotaged by thoughts like 'Is it really going to happen?', causing doubts to build and that initial motivation to slip away, becoming increasingly less real and tangible. However, if those inspirations are accompanied by a 'What if?' mindset, there's a real possibility of holding on to that initial purpose and finding ways to achieve it. This episode is designed to help you with that transformation.
