Movienizer

CNET Editors' review

Movienizer is an intuitive database that allows users to keep track of their movie collections. Although it's similar to other programs we've seen, the fact that it's free sets it apart.

Movienizer's interface is simple and attractive, with its major functions organized in buttons and menus across the top. Like many similar programs, Movienizer can download movie information from 24 online resources in nine languages, or gather information from a DVD or text file. The program also has a loan-tracking feature, allowing users to keep track of who they lend their DVDs to, although it's lacking the separate database for borrowers that many other programs have. The program does allow users to create collections of people, such as actors or directors, as well as sort movies by actors, genres, and other categories. The program also has a built-in movie player, allowing users to view movies that are stored on their computers without opening a separate application. Most of the program's features were easy to use, although we found it difficult to switch between databases at first; this function is not completely intuitive. The program's built-in Help file is well written and did a good job of answering our questions. Overall, while there was nothing really exceptional about the program, we found it to be a perfectly adequate movie organizer, competitive with other programs that must be paid for.

Movienizer is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "My favorite)"

    March 15, 2013  |   By JerryJar

    Version: Movienizer 6.0 build 345

    Pros

    Using Movienizer for years, very nice app! Looks very simple at first glance, but then you discover depth. Here one can do things impossible in other movie catalog programs! Very nice and prompt support, too. Worth every penny.

    Cons

    A friend of mine can't stop raving about the program after I showed it him a few weeks ago)

    "Movienizer defrauds buyers"

    March 9, 2013  |   By amitjaju

    Version: Movienizer 6.0 build 345

    Pros

    Features from any movie catalogue software

    Cons

    Movienizer licensing is very weird. You buy today and you not get major upgrades released tomorrow. You only get minor updates which have bug fixes (Hellow, I have the right to use a bug free software which I paid for unlike downloading a cracked copy).
    I bought 4.0 in October 2011. They released 5.0 in November 2011 and denied me an upgrade. Most publishers provide 1 year free upgrade.

    "All right if you buy the real one"

    August 4, 2012  |   By promytius

    Version: Movienizer 5.3 build 302

    Pros

    Nice interface, lots of potential features and many things to tease you about NOT having. I really enjoy the bait-and-switch approach to software; it builds so much confidence in the product.

    Cons

    Absolutely useless as downloaded.

    Summary

    Skip it or buy it outright, this is a waste otherwise.

    "Finally with mass update!"

    January 18, 2012  |   By highdsan

    Version: Movienizer 5.1 build 260

    Pros

    Just installed the new version and it's awesome! The nice new look is good, but what I mostly appreciate is the mass update feature. I've been waiting for it since maybe Movienizer 3.0. Many thanks!

    Cons

    None, Movienizer IS the best.

    "The developer has not cut out the old 2.2 version."

    January 11, 2012  |   By Steve9999999999

    Version: Movienizer 5.0 build 256

    Pros

    Before people complain maybe they should check out the forum at their website where the developer fully tells how to use the old program so it doesn't update and he still provides a 6.3meg download link to it. Which I just downloaded. Look in the general forum under "Can I go back to 2.2" I haven't tried it yet because I'm still testing the 5-526 version which seems better that 4 other movie programs I looked at today. I like all the data and pics it shows for each movie on one screen. I just want to know if it will combine movies with separate built data files on several HD's on to one HD and maintain the player link and data to those movies.

    Cons

    None yet, will keep testing it.

    Summary

    I'm assuming that the new version has a lots of improvements with future free updates so over the years one would use this program it seems to be worth it.

    "The best movie cataloger I've ever seen"

    November 7, 2011  |   By Cottonwire

    Version: Movienizer 4.5 build 248

    Pros

    Intuitive and simple interface; new feature of tabbed pages; support of numerous online databases; creates movie collection catalogs for Dune and WDTV media players; advanced work with persons; and many others ;))

    Cons

    Video player could be better. However one can setup his\her favorite player as default for the playback.

    Summary

    Movienizer is absolutely worth its money. The program is 'always evolving' and tries to satisfy every user requirement. Fast customer support and the software functionality makes it the best

    "program changed"

    May 12, 2011  |   By promytius

    Version: Movienizer 4.2 build 213

    Pros

    easy to use, minimal controls, installs and uninstalls easily

    Cons

    lacks some bells and whistles; recent "upgrade" now wants money for pro version.

    Summary

    I DLd and compared 5 different movie database programs; Coolector outdoes them all - 4 clicks to add virtually any movie. This pales in comparison.

    "Nice DVD database software"

    February 14, 2011  |   By freewayjambob

    Version: Movienizer 4.1 build 196

    Pros

    This program helps much if one has more than a hundred DVD's (I have more than 2,000). Good for all sorts of video files, too, but I do not have much of them.

    Cons

    One becomes addicted to it :)
