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

I can be brief. Every year I rely on this guide to tell me about the huge number of films that are available on television and elsewhere, and up to a short while ago I have never found that I seriously disagree with the assessments the book offers. I say "until recently" because I now strongly disagree with the rave review they gave to George Clooney's film "Up in the Air". To be fair, most American reviewers thought the film was great. I thought it was nonsense and totally unconvincing. I thought the three lead characters, despite Clooney'ss charm, were unconvincingly written, and the supporting actress, a little rodent-like creature who gabbled her lines in a high-pitched squeak, was virtually unintelligible.
Nevertheless, this book is still a must for me and I value it highly.

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.

Leonard Maltin's guide is a must for reviews of most movies and really up to date, including recent UK releases
