Leonard Maltin

Who is the best movie reviewer alive today? Why, yes--it's none other than Leonard Maltin, whose movie reviews are succinct and superb. Here's a gem, from his annual Movie Guide, which may be the greatest (brief) movie review of all time:

"The Terror of Tiny Town (1939) 63m. *1/2 (out of 4 stars)
If you're looking for a midget musical Western, look no further. A typical sagebrush plot is enacted (pretty badly) by a cast of little people, and the indelible impression is that of characters sauntering into the saloon under those swinging doors!"
