tv lovers will consult maltin daily with mixed results. most recent titles are missing. films from before 1950 and oscars are overpraised. many outstanding movies are underrated (3 examples:salome's last dance,my uncle vini, love walked in) Mr Maltin, please less judgements and more up to the minute listings.
I'm willing to forgive him for Taxi Driver, The Truman Show and The Shawshank Redemption. But Fight Club is the final straw. Leonard Maltin used to be my favorite film critic; but how can I respect a man who recommends convoluted Hollywood tripe like The Bone Collector and Double Jeopardy, and condemns the brilliant Fight Club. Fight Club is the most provocative, groundbreaking satire of society and it's institutions, since Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. Shame on Mr. Maltin (and Mr. Ebert too) for not recognizing a truly important landmark in motion picture history.
