Coollector Movie Database

CNET Editors' review

Movie lovers usually end up with big video collections, not to mention big trivia collections. Coollector Movie Database can help you manage both your collection and your obsession. Its Movie Encyclopedia is an ever-growing database of tens of thousands of films and hundreds of TV shows, including credits. There's also a personal Owned Videos database, as well as an Existing Videos feature that automatically scans various merchants and displays video titles in print in various formats; it even computes and displays the best price for each. It's free, too.

Coollector's interface is split into side-by-side panels, with the program's three databases displayed in tabs on the left side with individual entries and search results on the right. Drop-down menus for Movies and Persons let us filter search results by various criteria. The Tools and Help entries were fairly typical; most options involved choosing which video formats to display and where best prices should appear. We were surprised not to see a search box but quickly learned that search strings appear automatically with rotated results when you start typing, which is great when you're not quite sure of a title or name. However, you must still be in either the Movies or Persons section to search either category, and there seems to be no global search. The database itself is pretty comprehensive and easy to use. Nearly every film has a cover shot, and many actors have head shots. The credits we checked were fairly complete, with the most notable absence being TV show credits for performers. Adding videos to our Owned Video database was as easy as clicking on the right title and format; pop-ups made editing the data easy, too. One thing sets Coollector Movie Database above all others, in our opinion: When you click on an actor's page, it displays either his or her birth date and current age; or birth and death dates, age at death, and number of years since they died. Call it Morbid Movie Mania; we just love that stuff.

While its film database offers a lot of easily accessible information, Coollector Movie Database probably won't supplant the Internet Movie Database as the database of record for the motion picture arts, but it doesn't try to be comprehensive, just useful, especially to collectors. That's a part it plays well.

    "Wow - good job!!!!"

    September 1, 2013  |   By musicman777777777

    Version: Coollector Movie Database 3.26.3

    Pros

    Mega - Information - very good quality (most jackets on the net) still missing some older ones though

    Cons

    Mega - Information - either a lot to add or a lot to sift through - I have about 8000 disks - HUGE job ahead - wish there was an easier way - maybe scanning?

    Summary

    I tried most of the databases for movies (including writing my own - just a spreadsheet) & so far - this is way ahead of the others!

    "Movie database"

    April 12, 2013  |   By Mustang5513

    Version: Coollector Movie Database 3.24.7

    Pros

    Easy to input movies.
    Uses barcode as well as keyboard.
    Updates every time opened.

    Cons

    Updates every time opened.
    Does not backup data very well, cannot view on another platform.
    Lost about twenty movies when my hard drive crashed even though I did back it up on a thumb drive.
    No options to search for wanted movies and save to program so they can be purchased later.

    Summary

    Good database for tracking movies and easy to use. No real backup for program but can be worked around, even though it should not need it.

    "Good movie database."

    September 21, 2012  |   By Mustang5513

    Version: Coollector Movie Database 3.22.8

    Pros

    Easy to use.
    Uses bar code as well as manual entry.
    Extensive database.
    Free or paid, both good.

    Cons

    Cannot change picture to English for some movies even though it shows as english in the preview.
    Has to update everything, everytime it is opened. Can be very slow to download.
    Nag screen for free version on startup.

    Summary

    Overall, it is a good movie database that is easy to use. It does work in spite of the updates that have to be waited upon at the opening.

    "Great movie database."

    August 28, 2012  |   By Mustang5513

    Version: Coollector Movie Database 3.22.6

    Pros

    Easy entry for movies.
    Uses barcode scanner.
    Retrieves data quickly from the net.
    Rapid search by Actor, Movie title, etc.
    Free, although it does nag you when you startup for registration.

    Cons

    Does not export to a spreadsheet or text very well.
    Can only use it on one computer unless you are quite knowledgable of computers.
    Has to update program and movie database from the internet every startup.
    No cross-platform use.

    Summary

    Overall It is a good movie database that is easy to use if you only keep it on one computer. It is only for Windows, cannot get android or IOS or even Linux that I'm aware of.

    "Still nothing similar for music?"

    February 16, 2012  |   By digital-dj

    Version: Coollector Movie Database 3.20.5

    Pros

    my comments refer to music, not movies... sorry

    Cons

    my comments refer to music, not movies... sorry

    Summary

    There's music organizers, but I still see nothing giving details about individual songs, artists, renditions, etc.; just databases to manage what you have (iTunes, Winamp, etc). Would be nice to see the history of a song, how far it rated on "Top 10s", Who initially recorded it, etc. I have an old book, from the UK on songs that are golden, c1964; lots of valuable info in it; but haven't seen anything since that even remotely comes close.

    "$12.99 Price??"

    December 16, 2011  |   By Basuto9

    Version: Coollector Movie Database 3.19.9

    Pros

    A great program, and was free.

    Cons

    Now, CNet says "Free to try, $12.99 to buy"?
    A mistake by CNet, perhaps?

    Summary

    I guess I need to stop and think if this is worth $12.99 to me - I realize it may very well be worth it for some.
