Coollector Movie Database helps you keep track of the movies and TV shows of your interest. The application consists of a vast database of more than 140.000 titles that you can search and explore to find a particular movie or learn about new films and series.

Collector offers a wide range of options and filters to help you explore the database and quickly find what you are looking for. When you first launch Coollector, it will see the list of movies ordered by IMDb rating, but you can easily change that and sort films by title, popularity, or year. You can also search through the database by genre, actors, and even by barcode, provided that you own a physical copy of a movie. The application also enables you to add and remove filters. What's interesting about this new version is the possibility of exploring the catalogs of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime from several countries.

Clicking on any movie will bring up all sorts of details about it, such as the poster, actors, release date, its level of popularity on IMDB, and a short synopsis. You can quickly rate the movie, add it to your wishlist, watch the official trailers on YouTube, and also associate a file to it. Coollector will also list all the DVD and Blu-Ray discs available for that movie. From another box, you can mark any movie as owned.

While Coollector's interface might take some time getting used to, it is designed to make the experience as customized as possible. By default, Coollector’s interface is divided into two panels, but you can switch to a single-pane view, and also adjust the thumbnail size and the number of columns as you like.

To add your own movies to the database, Coollector gives you several alternatives. It enables you to import a list of barcodes or a list of movies in files like TXT, CVS, or HTML. You can also manually add a movie that's not available in the database, or simply scan a folder of movies in your PC. The application will immediately recognize the movies and will let you add them to your database.

Coollector can also learn about the type of movies you like in order to make personalized suggestions; for that purpose, it invites you to play the Rating game, which consists in rating random movies.

In short, Collector is a great tool to have if you want to know everything about the movies you like. The list of movies it includes is huge and and so is the number of features it offers to explore and organize your database.

Drift I'm a movie buff, so I use Coollector nearly every day. I look up a movie (displayed on the left half of the screen), see who acted in it (displayed on the right half of the screen), then click on the actors to see what other movies they were in, then explore those movies, or explore other actors in those movies. It's very fast. To do this on IMDB, one must wait for pages to load, which can be very slow, but it's immediate on Coollector. Even so, every page in Coollector has a link back to the corresponding page on the IMDB website, so it's fast and easy to navigate to IMDB if one chooses. Besides actors, Coollector displays all the other cast and crew, so it helps answer questions about the history of producers and directors, something every film buff must know. Another feature I find useful is the ability to search for movies by genre and year, so if for example I want to know what Sci Fi movies came out in 1984 (the same year as the Terminator) it will display pages for all of those movies, ordered by popularity or IMDB rating. Thus it's a great tool to help discover movies one might have missed. The one thing I'd say to potential buyers of the software is don't let the low price worry you. This is a professional piece of software, even if it's priced like shareware. It's not buggy or incomplete, it is stable and vast. Anyone who is interested in film will love Coollector and will instantly regard it as essential.

Guest The prices feature isn't enabled by default, but the users interested in that feature can go to the settings panel and select which Amazon stores (US, UK, France, etc...) they want to display the prices.
