2 - Ghostbusters The Ultimate Visual History
Sticking with visual history books and this time it's dedicated to the 1984 classic, Ghostbusters.  This is a real treat and like the Back to the Future book it's packed with behind the scenes images which, until now has been seriously lacking in books and on the Internet for the movie.

3 - Star Wars Bluetooth Speaker
These high quality officially licensed bluetooth speakers are of the highest quality and so is the sound.  Not out until January but they will certainly be worth the wait.  A C3P0 and Stormtrooper version of these quality speakers are available.  The company have really gone to town on the detail to bring us fans a product we would be proud of putting on our shelf next to our collection.  Here's what AC Worldwide say about the Stormtrooper model:
"The grey “patches” you see on a Stormtrooper helmet were painted, they are meant to be grills – so we have made them as they are meant to be, the vents on the jaw line were stickers so we have built them in, over the bridge of the nose and around the rear of the helmet, we have looked at what has been painted and then made what they are meant to be."

4 - Jurassic World Blu-Ray Limited Edition Blu-Ray
The set includes Jurassic World on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D, and comes with two interlocking book-end statues featuring the battle between the incredible new Indominus Rex and all-time-favourite T-Rex as seen in Jurassic World, all packaged in a gift box.  Unfortunately it's out of stock on Amazon US except for a few sellers selling at an inflated price.  Check around first.

5 - Jaws 2 Soundtrack
This two disc version released by Intrada has been a long time coming.  Featuring some of the finest pieces by John Williams and one of my all time favourites, The Catamaran Race.  There are a total of 43 tracks and over an hour and a half of John Williams magic.

6 - Star Wars Insider Magazine Subscription
The build up to The Force Awakens has been immense and with the release of the film at the end of the year and more Star Wars in 2016 it's never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan.  Keeping up to date and getting the official news can be more difficult than it sounds.  Thank goodness for Star Wars Insider which constantly delivers a quality magazine with news, articles, competitions and much more.  Written by some of the most knowledgeable Star Wars gurus on the planet.  There's nothing like having Star Wars Insider by your side kid.

7 - The Bearded Trio T-Shirt
Okay, it may be a bit of a plug but lets be honest if you're a fan of Spielberg, Lucas and Williams why not wear a T-Shirt with the three on the front?  A perfect way to show your love for the talented three.
$20 on Tee Public.  (Sometimes on offer at $14)

8 - Empire Magazine The Force Awakens Six Cover Variation Bundle
Empire magazine is one of Britain's biggest selling film based magazines and when they do a Star Wars cover for their magazine they are going to be good.  The build up to The Force Awakens ensured we were going to get a special cover for the magazine.  What we didn't know was that they were going to do six Luminous variants!  Daisy Ridley as Rey, Captain Phasma, Finn, played by John Boyega, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren and finally Chewie and Han.  Star Wars collectors will definitely want to get their hands on all six.
£49.99 on Amazon UK

9 - Steven Spielberg Blu-Rays
In last year's gift list we recommended Spielberg's Directors Collection on Blu-Ray.  A group of Spielberg's finest movies in one box set and four of them made their debut on the HD format and you could only get them on this box set.  Now you can buy them individually which is handy if you already own the others.  The titles are Duel, Always, 1941 and The Sugarland Express.  Another title we would like to mention is Munich which is finally available on Blu-Ray.
$8.00 on Amazon UK
$13.48 on Amazon US

10 - The Force Awakens Soundtrack
It's out on December 18th and I know most of you won't be able to wait until Christmas day to listen to another Star Wars masterpiece from John Williams.  But if you're really good and ask nicely your loved one may give you an early Christmas present.
$13.99 on Amazon UK
$13.98 on Amazon US

Everyone here at The Bearded Trio would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  I hope it turns out to be the best one yet.  May the Force be with you all.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset.

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
