How sad that this is the final issue of Maltin's valuable guide. Always fair and unprejudiced.

Good reference book but hopeless in the kindle format. There is no way to search the book for a particular film as there is no index. There is simply an A - Z chapter list. If for example you want to look up a film starting with the letter E you have to wade through the films included in that chapter until you find it. This could take a long time and will quickly drain your battery.

It looks like the rise of the online review make the book no longer viable.This is the last edition to be published.That's a real shame as myself and probably thousands of others have grew up with this book.I first bought it in the early 90's, I had to buy this edition with it being the last.I don't always agree with the reviews but that's half the fun, comparing my own reviews with an expert like Maltin.But more often then not his reviews are spot on.
Reviews are concise and to the point, a general overview of the plot,then a critique of the film in question.I would personally prefer a slightly different rating system. Rate the film 1-10, rather then the BOMB (really awful) up to 4 star including halfs. But that quibble aside a must own book.

There are plenty of other reviews to choose from on the web, but for me this provides the benchmark against which others can be judged. I have always found it to be an essential reference over successive years and this remains a reliable and definitive film guide, but I can see why it has struggled against more accessible alternatives.

The e-book version is way too clunky to use as a simple A-Z list (the App, now defunct, was slightly better) and would score two and a half points for format, but the content remains five stars (or four if using the guides own rating) I will be buying the last print version too (you can stumble across other absorbing titles more easily when browsing for the film you want).

This is the final edition of a classic guide. Its coverage is wide, its opinions are intelligent and expressed very economically - space is at a premium when one has to cover 16,000 films in 1,600 pages. All the most important information is given (main cast, director, duration) and the star rating system is a handy shortcut to choosing what to see - obviously it reflects the tastes of the editors, but it coincides pretty closely to mine where I've tested it. I'm disappointed that there will be no future editions, but this one will serve as a reference work for years to come.

Supposed to be the last ever edition of Maltin's Movie Guide.
This used to be essential for movie fans.Nowadays with the internet it is largely outdated.
I still love this book..I often disagree with Maltin but it has always been a fun read as well as a useful referencee tool over the years.
I shall miss it
