Reviewing Movies on Demand

Usually, my colorful TV partner Grae Drake (from Rotten Tomatoes) and I cover current theatrical releases for our shows on ReelzChannel, and we’ll be doing that with a holiday movie program later this week. In the meantime, we’ve got a half-hour show focusing on movies that you can now see at home using Video on Demand.

Grae and I have fun debating the merits of such diverse 2015 releases as Ant-Man, Inside Out, Trainwreck, Spy, San Andreas, Minions, and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. If you’d like to see a sample segment, click HERE.

This show won’t “date” as quickly as a current-movie survey, so it will run on Reelz all through January, but below are our December airtimes if you’d like to check it out.

To see where Reelz airs in your part of the world, click HERE. We’re on DirecTV channel 238, Dish Network 299, AT&T U-verse 799, and TimeWarner 128.

Leonard Maltin is one of the world’s most respected film critics and historians. He is best known for his widely-used reference work Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide and its companion volume Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide, now in its third edition, as well as his thirty-year run on television’s Entertainment Tonight. He teaches at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and appears regularly on Reelz Channel and Turner Classic Movies. His books include The 151 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons, The Great Movie Comedians, The Disney Films, The Art of the Cinematographer, Movie Comedy Teams, The Great American Broadcast, and Leonard Maltin’s Movie Encyclopedia. He served two terms as President of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, is a voting member of the National Film Registry, and was appointed by the Librarian of Congress to sit on the Board of Directors of the National Film Preservation Foundation. He hosted and co-produced the popular Walt Disney Treasures DVD series and has appeared on innumerable television programs and documentaries. He has been the recipient of awards from the American Society of Cinematographers, the Telluride Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives, and San Diego’s Comic-Con International. Perhaps the pinnacle of his career was his appearance in a now-classic episode of South Park. (Or was it Carmela consulting his Movie Guide on an episode of The Sopranos?) He holds court at Follow him on Twitter and Facebook; you can also listen to him on his weekly podcast: Maltin on Movies. — [Artwork by Drew Friedman]
