    Anyone have any good recommendations for home theater or movie related books?

    I already have the Theo book on home theaters,High End Audio guide for Everyone and an AFI encyclopedia, are there any others I should own?

    Im really interested in learning/discovering about important films I have never seen before.

    I was considering the following:

    1) The New York Times Guide to the Best 1000 Movies Ever Made - Vincent Canby

    2) The Great Movies - Roger Ebert; Hardcover

    3) Master Handbook of Acoustics - F. Alton Everest; Paperback

    4) Hollywood on Lake Michigan: 100 Years of Chicago & the Movies - Arnie Bernstein

    This last one simply because I grew up in Chicago...[​IMG]

    Any comments/Suggestions???

    anyone??

    I looked over the NY Times Guide - simply a collection of the published movie reviews. (not worth it) [​IMG]

    The Great Movies - read his chapter on The Wild Bunch. Pretty interesting insights and comments (worth it!) [​IMG]


    I also checked out Oopps! movie mistakes - Jon Sandys, it was simply a collection of continuity errors. (not worth it)

    A Year at the Movies : One Man's Filmgoing Odyssey - Kevin Murphy looks promising might be picking this one up [​IMG]
