If you are a real movie lover, surely you will find Movienizer a very helpful tool for you. It allows you to organize your movie and TV series collection and locate one in no time. You can use Movienizer to record all kind of information about your movies - including a brief synopsis and screenshots - and to rate them, so that you can find your favorite flicks very easily. What is more, Movienizer is capable of downloading any missing piece of information about your movies automatically from renowned online databases such as IMDb.
The program offers a practical user interface with easy access to all the functions offered. Its main panel displays thumbnails of all your registered movies and actors in alphabetical order. Note that Movienizer not only allows you to keep detailed information about your favorite movies and series, but also about your favorite actors/actresses. You can also filter your movie list by any of a large number of parameters, such as the year, the genre, the actors, the country, and the IMDd rating, just to mention some. Besides, you can create quick filters that allow you to filter your movie list with a single click.
Once you click on a movie, all the information attached to it will appear classified into categories, like General, Shots, Awards, Actors, Description, and Seasons (useful for series). As for the actors/actresses, the available categories are General, Biography, Awards, and Movies. Adding a new movie to your collection is also an easy and simple process. The program allows you to do it in four modes: by title, by barcode, from DVD/Blu-ray folders, and from files/folders. This means that you can type or read the barcode of your original DVD (barcode readers are supported) and let the program download all the information automatically from the Internet, or simply let it extract the information directly from the metadata on your DVD disc or video files. You can also add persons (i.e. actors/actresses, director, etc.) by letting the program find and download the corresponding information from the Web. Of course, the program also allows you to edit the information of your movies and persons at any moment with ease.
To conclude, I would say that Movienizer is a great tool that performs its job really well. All the features mentioned above cover just its main functionality, but there are more additional functions. The $39.95 price is for a 1-year subscription only, but you can also buy a lifetime license for $89.95. The publishers also offer a portable version of the program that works without installation.
