The list reminds me of another list I saw in an English music magazine. Purportedly the "Top 100 albums of All Time" it then listed 68 albums which had been released in the previous 3 years plus a few Beatles and Pink Floyd thingo's etc.

 

The list told me little about great albums but a lot about the age of the people compiling the list.

Yes, as I wrote it yesterday I felt it very light on the classics. I wrote a "disclaimer" to this affect, however due to a bit of a stuff up lost the whole post and forgot to add the note in the re-write. It's a starting point of sorts and definitely needs an update with more vintage actors. However do like it as a bit of a summary of current outstanding Aus actors (excepting Bud Tingwell having passed away in 2009). But lists are inherently and usually flawed instruments.

My remarks weren't about your list but rather the original one in the first post.

I had no idea there were another 8 pages - I didn't look that far.

      Found this yesterday amongst SBS On Demand's movies. Set in 1941 during the siege of, another true (?) story about amazing people with huge hearts doing things we would find totally inconcevable. Loved it, highly recommended. 
      ps If I've placed this wrongly moderators, please amend.

      Hi All

      I'll introduce myself hear first post.
      I'm Mark and from Perth Western Australia
      I do like watching movies and youtube music videos.
      I am building a house and its at roof cover stage and I'm kicking myself hard because if i'd discovered this forum or the shop that sells the equipment I would of made the home theater bigger; enough for 2rows etc.... now I am dreaming.
      Anyway I have been reading this forum, visiting shops and reading product reviews. I'm lost and confused... .......but I've not given up I still want a kick-ass ground shaking theater room
      but I'm a n00b so I turn to you guys as you seem very enthusiastic, with heaps of experience and wise knowledge, which I would love to copy and paste from your brain to mine by a USB
      I have uploaded and image of my small room that's going to be my theater and the 2 quotes.
      Yes i know double doorssssss. at least I put 2 conduits in and extra power at the back but my wife wants to cover the hole room with curtains yes 360 degrees and I got thick carpets too.
      so I am young and don't own any furniture nor equipment so I went to west coast HIFI and got 2 quotes from them and I get the feeling of disappointment.

      Today I've taken a day off work to go window shopping, there isn't many places in Perth that do Home Theater, theirs only west coast HIFI, surround sounds and Douglas hifi, oh and Frank Prowse HiFI.
      I have not looked into online or international first I need to know what I need.

      My room is 4430 wide so nice 4 seat leather couch will go in.
      but 3890 long bit close to screen
      Bulkhead (wall to 700in all way round) 28c or 2400 high
      center of ceiling is 31c or 2700 high
      Bow i did use this website with the 2 different high i cant work out if i got a good room.
      Screen size I will be sitting about 3500 away I am counting about 400mm for the recliners space.
      Some say I could get away with 4K Hisense 75" UHD LED LCD 100Hz 3D Smart TV for $4500
      others recommend a projector and 100'' size max

      Now i love B&W speakers especially the cm10 s2 one shop today said that's over kill
      I love bass,. in my car i have a nice 10'' that made me sick at the start now I feel its losing power or I'm getting deaf.
      In my opinion the two quote I got are; over my budget, I wonder if I could save somewhere on parts, and I did not like the Yamaha speaker did not cut it for me.
      The sales man has also added in the quote krix subwoofer because the psb subwoofer was not loud enough for me the krix did make the room shake i think the panasonic DMR-BWT945GL would be great if i went for projector that unit would be my smart hub.
      Therefore my question is, what would recommend for me.
      5.1 or 5.2 ?
      TV or Projector ?
      speaker recommendation
      ( floor or bookshelf on stands ?)
      (subs I do like if I feel the sound or vibration or neighbors complaining ) ?
      ( rear in ceiling or ? )
      Yamaha power and pre or normal av receiver ?
      bluray player do i need to be worried about them
      did i miss any questions ?

      feel free to add model numbers if you recommending

      I will appreciate everything I am give, as now I'm in a dilemma.
