Basic movie organizer

Keep track of your movie collection with this attractive program.

Movie Label 2010 is a multifeatured database program that allows users to organize their movie collections. Although we liked the program's many options and sleek interface, it didn't always run as well as it should have.

The program's interface will look familiar to users of Office 2007 products. Everything is fairly intuitive, although given the number of features, sometimes users will have to do a bit of poking around to find what they're looking for. There are several ways for people to enter movie titles; Movie Label can search for and download information from IMDb, gather information from a DVD, or import titles from a text file. Although the program can be used simply to keep track of movies stored elsewhere, such as on DVD, users can also play movies that are stored on their computers directly from Movie Label, which is nice. Users can also create a database of contacts in order to keep track of whom they loan their movies to. The program's Help file is well-written and thorough.

Overall, we liked the program just fine; it didn't seem particularly better or worse than other similar programs we've used. We were a bit concerned that at one point while we were attempting to download information for a TV show, the program froze up and then crashed. We restarted and it was fine after that, but we can't be sure this was a one-time occurrence; users would be wise to use the entire 14-day trial period before purchasing. Movie Label 2010 installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend it to all users.
