3 thoughts on “Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide 2005

  1. LM is a middlebrow “reviewer” of movies. Sometimes his ratings and comments are totally predictable. “Off-putting violence” or “dis tasteful sex” are common complaints. His ratings can be egregiously high or criminally low. He definitely seems to favor Hollywood “classics” over more contemporary flicks. Overall he’s merely OK but does provide a pretty reliable reference book. This edition is merely the latest of many that I’ve had over the years. I found it at the dump. I don’t buy them any more

  2. I really need to get his Classic Movie Guide because each newer edition of this book (this is my fourth) has more missing older movies… otherwise it is a great reference book.
