Essential! Yes, you can download the app for iPhone, but it's not the same! The book contains a thoughtful foreword which cannot be viewed on the app. But, more importantly, if you are going to have a movie reference guide on your shelf, this is one to have. Thorough, comprehensive and sometimes funny, Maltin's reviews are insightful and a great way to determine what's worth watching out of the plethora of cinema with which we are barraged every year. And books are just more fun. Don't we spend enough time staring at a little screen?
