The Bearded Trio Christmas Gift Idea - Star Wars Inspiration Books - Be More Leia & Be More Lando

Feel Inspired - Be More Leia and Be More Lando Our latest Christmas gift idea are two books that will help any budding entrepreneur and Star Wars fan.   "Be More Lando" and "Be More Leia" are full of wise words and hopefully will inspire the reader with advice that will help them in their career or just in everyday situations.

These easy to read books can sit on someone's desk and be read on a daily basis.  You could say they are kind of like the Rules of Aquisutions for Star Wars fans but instead of being centred around greed the books are centred around improving yourself and appreciating life.  Lets take a look at some of the advice in the "Be More Lando" book.

4DX - What Is It And Would Spielberg Approve?

Will 4DX Shake Up The Cinema Experience? A few days ago I was lucky enough to attend a gala opening of a 4DX screen at Cineworld, Spytty in Newport South Wales.  Actually, the cinema is the first in Wales to not only have a 4DX screen but a Superscreen and Screen X too.

What is 4DX?
But I was there for the 4DX and this would be my first taste of this latest experience.  So what is 4DX?  Well, if you've been to a theme park and you've been in one of those special movie showings  like the Terminator at Universal or The Muppets at Disneyland where you feel the chair move, get sprayed with water and have wind blown in your face then you are only half way there.
