I recently requested that Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide, =
Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever, and Halliwell's Film Guide all be =
placed on standing order, with the old copies being weeded as soon as =
the new copies were in. I've been asked if they are all necessary.=20

My feeling is that they are all useful for faculty who want to think =
about including films in their courses, they provide a quick guide to =
feature films available on video, and they all have a slightly different =
emphasis and coverage, not to mention criteria. Currently there are no =
provisions in the library to maintain these titles, beyond my own =
memory. I want to respond that they are useful and necessary in the =
same way that multiple English dictionaries are, and far less expensive, =
but thought I'd check with the collective before shooting my mouth off! =

So the questions are: in your respected opinions, are these titles =
different from each other? Are they all necessary? If not, which one(s) =
would you prefer to have handy all the time? Personally, I like =
Halliwell for the pithy reviews, Maltin for the volume and Videohound =
for ease of use.=20

Thanks
