The definitive New York Times bestseller that has "essentially cornered the movie guide market" (New York Times Book Review)
In the age of Netflix, even just browsing the seemingly infinite selection of movies on DVD can be overwhelming. With hundreds of new films on the market every year, how does one choose? Fortunately, America's most respected film critic can help. For more than four decades, Leonard Maltin's movie guides have helped millions of viewers make the best selection for any occasion.
In addition to more than 17,000 capsule reviews and information including date of release, running time, and MPAA rating, the 2011 edition also includes more than 350 new entries, an index of actors and directors, and Leonard's personal recommendations. Savvy consumers know-when it comes to the movies-there's only one real guide.

They include his rating from "bomb" to four stars with brief reviews, release date in country of origin, running time, whether made in color, director, principal cast, MPAA rating, and availability on videodisc, laserdisc, or DVD. The guide also includes a list of recommended movies by category (e.g., movies about movies), U.S. mail-order and online sources, and a glossary of widescreen terms.
