I bought the bigger paperback for this year. Because i heard that people were complaining to the smaller size book this year. Also i had a tough time finding time one in stores. I decided to order it instead and i was glad, i did. There is some great reviews of the more recent movies, i enjoyed last year. Including some movies, i thought they were great. Which he didn't thinking of much like "Drive" is one example (I thought, it was an excellent art-house character study thriller), "Shame" (I thought, it was a very good and daring movie, especially Michael Fassbender's fearless performance) or the underrated "Young Adult". He actually gived an above average review for "Final Destination 5" (Which it was one of the more entertaining of the series). He also liked "Prometheus", he has interesting review for that one. Some movies, he came close giving three stars like "21 Jump Street", "The Cabin in the Woods", "Hunger Games", "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and more. I thought, he was less critical with movies from summer 2011 to summer 2012. I also felt by reading of these new reviews, even those, he thought, it was average or above average. He wanted to like the movie a little more. The one movie, i was surprised he liked the "Fright Night" remake, i thought that one was really average. It was watchable, thanks to a good cast but i thought, they made many changes to the story what made the original movie, a real winner. '

If you should get this edition, i think, you will enjoy this year's edition. I certainly did so far and i know, there is a couple of reviews what came out for this june to last year's new reviews, i didn`t check out yet. Check out "Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil", he really give an great review for that movie. I argeed with his review on that one.

The mini-review gold standard Oct. 12 2012
By DocJohn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used all of the so-called movie guides - this is the one I keep coming back to, at least every other year or so. It is, with the current edition, the concise, yet somehow deep, source I always give credibility to.

Leonard Maltin 2013 Nov. 11 2012

The reviews are good as usual but the small format is very annoying on the eyes. I usually get the larger edition.

Paper vs digital Sept. 24 2012
By Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely disappointing with the Kindle version.The search function is very slow. To get to a specific movie takes forever. Much faster by a factor of 10 to use the paper version. The same applies to searching for actors. This edition takes no advantage of being digital. Where is the director listing? Why no search by number of stars or by genre. Maybe someone will write an app for this. Otherwise buy paper.

Still a valued reference except for . . . Nov. 19 2012
By Craig During - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
For 2013 Leonard Maltin and team once again provides a reference that movie hounds like me can use to discover new treasures or details about beloved films that are not otherwise easily found. Two minor carps though: (1) the format is narrower and with finer print making this year's edition more difficult to read. (2) As I have noticed in prior years a number of older films are now missing so you may wish to hold onto earlier copies rather than toss them out.

Good, but less complete with each new edition June 30 2013
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's good, but with each new edition he removes reviews that were in earlier editions. Sometimes it says something like "followed by a made for tv sequel" and the sequel isn't reviewed. Now that this is an ebook, there's no reason to still delete reviews for space reasons. Also, he should re-visit movies more often that have been subject to critical reevaluation in the years since he wrote his review, or at least acknowledge it. Ishtar, for example.
