Anybody picked up the 2006 maltin guide

I need to grab the new one, and the classic movies book. I heard that gave them a lot of room to add obscure titles this year. Wondering if anyone had thoughts.

I used to buy this every year, but there's no need anymore due to the IMDB.

I was happy to see that they finally listed Il Posto, Branded to Kill, and Tokyo Drifter this year.

I don't have any info to add, but just wanted to say that I too always bought this book every year. I haven't for the past couple of years due to IMDb as well. Might pick this up again for the hell of it though. I've actually found Maltin's star rating system to be pretty accurate and on par with my opinions.
