Movie Collector reviews from customers

Thanks for your help and a great program
Thank you for your prompt response and for such a wonderful program. I have over 3800 films and I tried a lot of programs when I was trying to find a cataloguing system. CLZ was by far the most efficient, powerful and aesthetically well designed.
I look forward to using it for many years to come! — Mark Dixon (USA) on Movie Collector

Powerful tool
Movie Collector is an essential part of my collection! It is an extremely, well-thought out powerful tool with fields for everything a collector would want to know, or you can add your own fields. I could not keep track of my vast collection without it. I reference it (or the mobile app version if I’m in a store) when shopping to avoid rebuying movies I already have. Almost everyday I use the sort functions to help me decide what movie to watch – usually by running time and sometimes by genre, where I’ve been able to add my own categories.
It is an amazing program! — Les Perkins (USA) on Movie Collector

Fabulous software
I do want to compliment you and your team on your fabulous software. I have been using it many years and it’s a blessing to be able to keep my library in order and at my fingertips from my cell phone. Each year I notice more improvements that help me manage my large database. Having everything stored in the cloud has be so helpful to be sure nothing is ever lost or destroyed. I know the amount of time it would take to manually restore and I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that anymore.
I did my update yesterday and love the changes to adding my new movies! Very handy additions! Bless you and your team and keep up the great work! — B. Griffin (USA) on Movie Collector

What an awesome product!
I've contacted you about the 3 products I own and LOVE before. I just had a most amazing experience. I've been experiencing some disk problems and didn't realize my movie collector database was on that drive. This morning, Movie Collector wasn't opening and I was having other problems. I then saw a life saving message from your software. To set the scene, I have nearly 3,500 movies and TV series I've catalogued. The message was something like my datafile was corrupt with 0 records retrievable. AGH! I kept reading, would you like to use an auto back-up made two days ago? YES!! I was back in business in less than 30 seconds.
It doesn't get any better than that! You auto-saved my butt! I couldn't even imagine starting over, this has taken MANY years of collecting.
So THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! — consul50 (USA) on Movie Collector

Products serve me well
I've used the CLZ app on my phone and CLZ Movies on my PC for a long time now. I even used Movie Connect for a short period. Not only have those products served me well, but they have also included excellent online app, cloud, and PC support.
I've asked support questions and described issues over the years, and they have always satisfied m my concerns quickly, often within 24 hours. Most of the time, I just needed guidance, and they gave it personally, patiently, and politely and, again, quickly. — Alan Dombrow (USA) on Movie Collector

I love your product!
Thank you SOOOOO very much, don't know what I was doing wrong before! I have over 3500 DVDs, don't know what I would have done if I had to re-enter all over again!
I love your product! Makes it very easy to keep track of my collection. Some day I may get adventurous and do the same for out book and music collection! — Martha Escandon (USA) on Movie Collector

Thanks for the new feature
Just letting you know of my appreciation for your 2.5.1 upgrade and it's synchronization of links to the cloud. It has led me to a complete redesign of my own blog/web presence. I now use your cloud almost exclusively for my listings and details. It is much less klutzy and considerably more attractive than my own design. Not to say it's perfect, but for me the simple addition of web 'links' has made all the difference.
Again. Thanks, — John Deitz (USA) on Movie Collector

The new bar chart in the background of the Folder panel
Just a quick note to say I like the new bar chart. There is so much flexibility in the Movie Collector now it must meet everyone's needs. Great work. — Lionel Rose (Australia) on Movie Collector

Thanks for the new 'Transfer Field Data' tool
Just wanted to thank you guys for adding this maintenance option. It is a godsend for me as a user of your desktop version. I have over 4500 records of movies & TV shows that I am constantly having to rearrange or reassign fields as I add or modify where my hard disks as well as electronic media are stored and what versions of the media I own (DVD, Blu, UHD, iTunes, Ripped copies, etc).
I also keep up with where the media is stored either in carousels or boxes and for electronic copies I need to know which hard disk it is stored or which NAS it is stored on. And, I also keep up with whether ripped copies are designed to be played on an iPad (standard resolution) or through my theater projector (high resolution).
I just did a mass copy that finished in 5 seconds that would have taken me weeks to manually copy from one field to another, speaking nothing of data entry keying errors along the way.
Thanks again, guys. — Fred Hayse (USA) on Movie Collector

Great product
Many thanks to you and Alwin and all of your staff for a great product. I have enjoyed all of the uppdates and improvements through the years, and it is such a help when browsing second hand shops / fleamarkets. Is this movie in my collection?, do I have it on dvd or blu-ray?, to be able to check directly on my cellphone has probably saved me buying double copies on many occasions. Keep up the good work! — Peter Macken (Sweden) on Movie Collector
