Kaleidescape Introduces Exclusive Leonard Maltin Recommends Collection of Movies

New Collection Curated by Acclaimed Film Critic

INDIANAPOLIS, CEDIA EXPO – September 6, 2012 – Kaleidescape, Inc., the market leader in movie servers, has partnered with respected film critic Leonard Maltin to curate a unique compilation of historically significant films, and modern movies you may have missed. Available exclusively from Kaleidescape, the Leonard Maltin Recommends collection assists in the creation of the ultimate home cinema experience by identifying great films to add to your collection of movies.

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.”

“Kaleidescape System owners are voracious consumers of movies, buying on average 51 titles per year,” said Michael Malcolm, Kaleidescape’s chairman, founder, and CEO. “We’re thrilled to be working with Mr. Maltin; his insightful commentary will help our customers discover and appreciate these lesser known films.”

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.
