I am in the market for a good and comprehensive movie cataloging app with all these DVDs I've been getting.
At first, I tried DVDPedia, but the things it seemed like I needed to do were just too much. It's a chore with the amount of disks one has... if you have over 20 or so, there's quite alot of stuff to work with.
Not exactly satisfied (although I had intended to purchase DVDpedia, sorry), I checked Movie Collector. Much more detail, more comprehensive, IMHO...
It tends to be easy to manage and update, if you want to add some info.
Now, the tough points. There is a big 'ol bump in the road with dual- named titles for my most cherished database, IMDB. I love spaghetti westerns and martial arts films, and IMDB lists them usually with their original titles (either Italian or Chinese). Try searching with the English, and it can be next to impossible to get hits with IMDB, Amazon, and my other favorite, DVD Empire (with its large cover jpegs). Either you get 2 out of 3 hits or IMDB stands alone, when you have to search for the original title name.
Try getting the trifecta, though and you're lucky to do it. You can use the UPC barcode, but IMDB doesn't recognize that. Perhaps there's a way to configure the "aka" title that IMDB uses? But then, some searches give me more hits than I'd imagine for IMDB. Should I give it the high five? I think so, since this is the best I've found.
I only hope the developers can see what I'm talking about, like for a movie like "Find a Place to Die." IMDB didn't recognise the search, but if you put "Joe... cercati un posto per morire!" in, it will, yet the other sites I like to garner DVD info from, don't.
But geezypeezy, it's fun to use. I've literally been up all night, and plan to buy this, because I've put almost 50 titles in, which is the shareware limit. You can configure and add genres, change pictures, so many different ways to make your search one that YOU choose and like to search.
It's very stable, not one crash. Two times it seemed hung up on a search item and it ended its search saying the effort timed out. For ease of use, I started giving 4, but 5 stars since it was easier to manage than the other I tried.
It does have search strings for adult titles hrough Adult DVD Empire, but I haven't tried that yet.
Works well with OSX 10.4.3 and a G4 processor. It doesn't heat up my Powerbook, so it doesn't seem to consume lots of CPU space.
