For a movie buff like me, database management of my video collection has become a necessity and I guess I am not the only one of the kind. This is what made me search a few useful movie organizers and here’s the first one for you.
Collectorz.com Movie Collector is a comprehensive movie database organizer which can obtain movie related data from IMDB, Amazon.com, MovieCollector.net and its own database.
It has a well designed user friendly interface which is pretty conventional in looks but offers great ease of use. It serves you with all the data related to movie including its front and back covers on a single window. The left part of the screen contains the details of the movie while the right part contains the same and more in a visually pleasing format along with a list of cast and character and the plot synopsis.The left part can also be used to view to view just the front covers of the movies.
It obtains its data from perhaps the best and largest sources of movie database online I.e. IMDB, Amazon.com and MovieCollector.net. To add to it, it also has a vast database of its own to support. Thus you will never be disappointed in your search.
It offers you myriad details to be stored for each movie. These details can be edited manually or can be downloaded from the source sites online.
4. Television Series support
You can also store the details of your favorite television series including their telecast timings.
1. No Integrated Player
I don’t know whether this would actually qualify as a low for the software or not as most of its counterparts provide this feature neither but I really feel it would be be a great value addition to the software. It does have a button to start the media center but that’s hardly of any use in PCs without Windows media center which most of them are.
For any collector tool, I find a price tag of $39.95 a bit too expensive.
Movie database management would never in the category of must haves but if you do need a movie manger, this is the one for you. It leaves little to be desired in terms of database management and contains certain features that make the job a lot easier.
