After 46 years of publications, Maltin is announcing that this is his last edition. In the "Introduction to 2015 Edition", he starts out this section by stating "This is the final edition of Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide. There's no way to soften or defect that news, although I can't pretend that it comes as a shock. With ready access to information on the Internet, our readership has diminished at an alarming rate. The book's loyal followers know that we strive to offer something one can't easily find online: curated information that is accurate and user-friendly, along with our own reviews and ratings. But when a growing number of people believe that everything should be free, it's impossible to support a reference book that requires a staff of contributors and editors." It's a shame, internet and new technology claims another victim which is this book.
Leonard Maltin is one of the best and most respected movie critics out there today even though I disagree with his negative reviews of The Shining, Caddyshack, Blade Runner and Scarface. Even with the cuts, I will miss this great reference book, unfortunately this version goes out with a whimper.
This year marks the 15th year in a row that I've bought a copy of "Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide". It became something of an annual ritual for me. Although "Leonard Maltin's 2015 Movie Guide" continued to evolve because of the ever-growing number of films it was required to evaluate, it still remains a wonderfully comprehensive reference book designed as much for occasional moviegoers as it is for hardened film addicts like myself.
Like its predecessors, the "Leonard Maltin's 2015 Movie Guide" is very simply and effectively organized. All entries are listed in alphabetical order. Each of the book's entries contains the following information: the movie's title; the year it was released; whether it's black-and-white or color; the film's length (in minutes); the director and cast; a short, sharp, informative review of the film; the film's rating (from BOMB to 4 stars, in half-star increments, as awarded by a consensus of Maltin's team of film critics); the aspect ratio in which the film was shot (e.g., Widescreen, Panavision, CinemaScope; etc.); the MPAA rating (G, PG-13, R, NC-17), and the various media in which the film is available (VHS, DVD, BD).
This latest edition of "Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide" concentrates on films released after 1965; films made prior to then are covered in a separate volume entitled "Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide."
Regretfully, "Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide" will no longer be published after 2015. Leonard Maltin announced this in his introduction to this year's edition. It's really too bad; with the guide, I've found it much easier to select the best films to rent or buy. It will be greatly missed.
