Books Leonard Maltin. From fred and ginger to ‘La la land’: a great new book. The movie musical! By Jeanine Basinger (Knopf) I promised myself a gift for the holidays: time enough to rea. ncut gems: controlled chaos. And although I didn’t care for it, Joker goes in the record books with eleven nods for what is officially (if not tonally) a comic book movie. The Academy, with its membership significantly expanded by 2,000 new recruits from the international film community-including more women than ever before-can no longer be accused of being a Hollywood monolith.

Buyers who suffer from age/disease induced reading impairment should note that the book text size is absurdly small. The book is apparently available is several "sizes" - I first encountered the book in a local lending library and it was barely readable. I ordered a copy from Amazon believing I would receive the same book that I originally borrowed; the Amazon edition was further reduced in size and with commensurate text size reduction. Pretty tough to read without sight aids.
Allowing that critics offer opinions that are either in line with or are in opposition to the reader's, Mr Maltin's reviews are generally supportable and spot-on, albeit often too short. Of course, the reader's ego will rule and the reader will gravitate to opinions that parallel his/her own. Mr Maltin covers a tremendous number of films... one can only wish that book would be available in an expanded electronic edition in which the writer would have the latitude to offer greater depth in his summaries.

I ordered this edition and then saw the reviews about the printing error, so I was concerned. The copy I received is perfect and I thought some people would want to know.

I was not worried, I know that Amazon would NOT screw us because they never do.

Thanks

One of the best movie review books out there. Wish he had continued with the director index ,...and an expanded actor index would be an improvement...but stll a very good value for the price. Don't agree on all the ratings, but most of them are a fair assessment. (he should have an online website, where those who don't agree could ask him (and his critics) to take a second look prior to the next edition!)

Good to have a comprehensive book with so many of the newer releases reviewed. But there are so many classics left out. And the director cross-reference from past editions has been eliminated completely.

I bought Leonard Maltin's movie guide 2012 for my mother's birthday. Like much of the older generation, my mother is allergic to computers and completely inept when it comes to using them. She uses them for E-mail, facebook, and not much else; sometimes I feel as if my existence is defined by helping her fix her aged PC and cleaning off all the unintentionally downloaded porno and malware that end up on her unkempt devices eventually. Because she's not tech savvy, she's less as likely to visit review sites like Rottentomatos, and therefore she desired an analog movie guild for her browsing pleasure.

Enter this book: An impressive compendium of movie reviews by Leonard Maltin. Sometimes I wonder how on earth he has time to watch all these films, but then I realize that this is probably all the man has been doing for many years now. The book is decent enough, and most of the reviews are reasonable...most of them. One example of one that is not, is 'The Dark Knight'; a modern classic which he, for whatever reason, gave a lower rating(two stars) than even it's predecessor 'Batman Begins'. He criticizes the film as being a "Batman story for the terrorist era" and goes on to say that the movie is too dark, and Heath Ledger's character is too grimly portrayed. This criticism makes very little sense, as he has seen it's predecessor, and had he been paying attention to comics over the last twenty years or so, he'd know that Batman has been written in literal specrtums ranging from Happy-go-Lucky(Adam West) to just short of pure, dark, noir-ish, evil. The criticism's context, in many instances, seems irregular and inconsistent, as most certainly the previous film had been setting this up the whole time.

While I appreciate Leonard as an individual critic, the above example is a prime reason why it's better to go with aggregate scores of many critics over just one. Viewing averages from a collection of critics helps you avoid nonsensical bias or flaws in judgment that can plague even the most rational people at certain times. On top of that, it's free.

Of course, some people just like having something for the coffee table. I understand that, entirely. As far as movie guides go, you could do a lot worse than this one.

He skipped quite a few old movies, so don't like this one as well as I did the 2004 one. This is for younger people who are trying to find out about post 1970s-80s movies as well as some of the old classics. Can't really recommend it for people born in the mid-forties.

To really be a fan of all things involving movies you have to get the annual LEONARD MALTIN'S MOVIE GUIDE! Every October I look forward to the new Guide coming out! The Movie evaluations, list of actors, directors, etc. and at the end of the book the lists of the major stars movies! Check it out, it's well worth the money spent!

This book is a very useful movie guide that also contains the actors and other information. I have copies from previous years and they have all been beneficial. The only thing to consider is every one has an opinion as does Leonard and we do not always agree. But Leonard is more realistic in his reviews than many other movie critics.
