The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 9.0
This application lets you create well-organized, neat, nice-looking movie catalogs which are easy to browse, to update and to modify. Its most important advantage is the fact that it can automatically download all kind of information for the movies that you want to catalog, including images, cast and crew data, plots and so on.
I really like that all that Movie Collector requires in order to automatically retrieve the film data is the title of that movie or the bar code of the DVD or Blu-ray disc. Then it will automatically download cast and crew information, movie plots, episode lists, cover arts and more. This will make your movie catalog look truly great, with images and complete information for each movie.

Another big plus of using Movie Collector is the fact that it offers complex and effective sorting and searching capabilities for your movie catalog. The movie list displaying modes can be customized in numerous ways, letting you choose exactly how you view and browse the films (Images View, List View and Cover Flow are the default ones, but you can also group and view the movies in folders or in other ways). Wish lists or loan lists can also be easily created and managed, helping you easily track even the movies that you don’t posses at the current time.

Furthermore, Movie Collector provides with comprehensive sharing and exporting features, which enable you to synchronize your movie catalog across different devices and locations or to upload it online.

In my opinion, Movie Collector is one of those very few applications that completely justify their prices. And it’s not even expensive.


  • Can automatically download all kinds of movie information.
  • Lets you manage wish lists and loan lists.
  • A lot of customization options.


  • None that I can think of.

What's new in version 8.0

- Templates:
- Backdrops: When using IE8 AND having backdrop images stored on a UNC
network path, a white background was shown instead of the backdrop image.
- Backdrops: When the backdrop file path contained an apostrophe ('),
the default blue logo background was shown instead of backdrop image.
- Backdrops: In some cases, when using a Quick Search, the hiliting of
the search word caused the backdrop to change into a white background.
- IMDb button was also showing when IMDb number was not filled in.
- IMDb Rating wasn't properly showing 2 digits ("7.0" instead of "7")
- The display of episode level Seen It values is now more subtle,
using a small "eye" image, and only shown when Seen It equals YES.
- Font size of Notes field was too large in several places.
- Episode list nows looks better for TV Series with just titles filled in.

- Now really fixed: Focus problems while adding Cast or Crew members manually.

Publisher's description

This official description applies to version 9.2

The program helps you create a movie catalog. The data about movies are obtained from the Internet: a title or barcode is only required. Movie Collector can scan for and add films present in your hard disk automatically. Thus, your catalog gives a direct link to the movies scattered across your hard disks.
