Mine had pages missing, pages duplicated and pages out of sequence; don't know how many copies are thus affected, but if you buy it, check it.

Maltin's guide is as essential as it ever was, but buying it in ebook form was a bad mistake. The table of contents allows you to navigate by the first letter in a film's title, but given that each section still contains thousands of films, this doesn't help much, and even if you type the full title of a film into the search box, it still takes an eternity to find the film you are looking for due to the book's length. For this book to work as an ebook, the table of contents needs to be much longer, with sections being based on the first three letters of the title, to allow the book to be browsed in much the same way as the print edition.

Some of the older classic films are not in this new movie guide.They are in another movie guide called classics.So they expect you to purchase 2 books.The other disappointment is that the book is smaller and the print is harder to read its so small.l don't think l will be buying anymore.

Printed by Signet Books (Penguin Group) USA. The Modern Era has been added to the title,but still contains Classic films from the Silent Era ( a comprehensive guide is available in Classic Movie Guide covering the Silent screen to 1965).
Nearly 16,000 movie reviews and over 25,000 DVDs and videos reviewed. Ratings from being a Bomb to 5 stars is very useful
Running times which is an invaluable guide for recordings and discovering which movies have been edited.
Index of leading performers and film appearances and more
Pity no A to Z of Directors.
1,646 pages, excluding preface
Best viewers guide on the market & the Amazon price is value for money. DON, HULL

You may hate som of the ratings, especially concerning action-movies, but overall it's good quality.
Best thing is, that Maltin can change his evaluation in following years

A very concise reference book, convenient in size, and as contempary and up to date as possible for availability now. Film buffs should find it a necessity to have..

I love this book, which probably explains why I've bought every edition since 1986! Each review encapsulates all the essential information you need to know about the movie with wit, style and substance. I really can't praise this highly enough and it is a must for any movie fan, young or not so young.

... an excellent reference document, brought up to date. If you're a movie buff, between this and IMDB.com you can't go far wrong.
