It’s a conversation between battling beliefs . . . and possibly the only chance you will ever get in your life to convince Leonard Maltin that his movie methodology is mortally mistaken and, in fact, WRONG. Perhaps best known for his eponymous annual book of movie capsule reviews, Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide, which was published from 1969 to 2014, Leonard and his daughter Jessie Maltin, who together host the Maltin on Movies podcast, are willing to take on all comers who have a gripe over one of Leonard’s reviews.
