The Business of Film: Free Guy, The Courier and Tiger Bay
James Cameron-Wilson tries to make sense of a box office that has risen even though all the existing big movies have seen their takes collapse. Riding high at #1 is Disney's Free Guy with Ryan Reynolds, a film packing cinemagoers in despite little advance buzz. James found it smart and original but was less impressed by the spy thriller The Courier with Benedict Cumberbatch which debuted at #8. On DVD, as well as seeing his earlier recommendation Antebellum again, he also proposes watching 1959's Tiger Bay, the first film to star Hayley Mills.

The Bigger Picture: Why American isolationism is such a dangerous policy
Political commentator Mike Indian asks, in the wake of the chaotic American withdrawal from Afghanistan, whether the USA's role as world policeman is over? He points out how very dangerous American isolationism is likely to be. Although recognising that Parliament's holding the American President in contempt will have little real effect, he believes that the Commons debate on the issue showed the House of Commons at its best, with some very powerful speeches and some very abashed ministers. He also looks at the state of the Labour Party ahead of its forthcoming party conference.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The bid for Morrison's and what it means for the market
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, looks at the bid for Morrison's, explaining why it is attractive and pointing out how cheap the lacklustre UK market now looks for overseas investors. Although the FTSE 100 Share Index has been mostly immune, that's not the case with the 250. Is the UK now open for foreign takeovers and why are a growing number of companies shying away from listing on the stock market altogether?

This Is Money: Are your energy bills about to soar? Latest on the Ofgem price cap and how to beat imminent rises
From October, millions of households can expect to pay even more on their energy bills. Ofgem is raising the energy price cap for the second time in a year, due to rising wholesale costs. The cap is now at a record high and it means those who are on a standard variable tariff, or a prepayment meter, could be facing hundreds of pounds added to their annual bills. Lee Boyce, Grace Gausden and Georgie Frost take a look at the price cap, what it means and how to potentially beat it. When it comes to future technology, will we soon see the death of the landline to be replaced by phone calls over wi-fi? Additionally, with growing numbers of households – especiall rural ones – turning to satellite broadband, we explain how it works and the potential costs. When it comes to current accounts, we tend to stay loyal. But those who have switched, Starling Bank and Virgin Money have been the most popular destinations. It's a tale of two different switching mentalities – those who want branches and bribes, and those who simply want a sleek app and good customer service. Lastly, Grace on the Case launched 10 months ago. In that time, our senior reporter Grace Gausden has managed to claw back a total of nearly £206,000 for readers. She takes a look back at some of her most satisfying wins and her passion for helping This is Money readers achieve a fair result from a variety of different firms.
