Kaleidescape has partnered with american film critic Leonard Maltin to curate a compilation of historically significant films, and modern movies. Available exclusively from Kaleidescape, the Leonard Maltin Recommends collection assists in the creation of home cinema experience by identifying great films to add to your collection of movies. Leonard Maltin Recommends collection was introduced by Kaleidescape at CEDIA 2012 (September 6-8 in Indianapolis, USA).
Leonard Maltin, noted film critic and historian, is the editor of the long-running and influential reference Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide and the companion volume, Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide. He currently hosts the weekly ReelzChannel television show Maltin on Movies, and teaches at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts.
Kaleidescape is producing exclusive video commentary in which Leonard Maltin will share his thoughts, personal anecdotes, and behind-the-scenes tidbits about each movie in the collection. Additional commentary will be added weekly, and the videos can be viewed on the Kaleidescape website.
"Living in a Big Way was one of Gene Kelly's rare commercial flops, but I selected it because it contains two of the most entertaining musical numbers he ever put on film," said Leonard Maltin. "These pearly gems are rescued by Kaleidescape's video bookmarks because you can simply select 'Fido and Me' or 'Playground Medley' to skip directly to the beginning of these innovative dances."
Leonard Maltin Recommends is available on DVD (26 titles) and Blu-ray Disc (17 titles) at suggested retail prices of $545 and $445 respectively. Additional titles will be added to the collection quarterly.
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Kaleidescape sells its movie servers through custom audio and video installers throughout the world. For more information, visit www.kaleidescape.com
