After months of working on comic related updates only (for our CovrPrice partnership), the CLZ team is finally freed up to work on our other products again, phew!

So today, we can release a nice update for your Movie Collector software, in which we improve on the IMDb integration. Not a huge “major” update, but since 2023 is getting closer, we are calling it “version 23.0” anyway 🙂

Anyway, about IMDb: Most of you are probably diligently updating your IMDb Ratings and Votes on a regular basis. After all, if you are in any way interested in IMDb ratings, it is important to always keep those up-to-date.

However, after running the “Update IMDb Ratings/Votes” and getting the “254 movies updated” message, have you ever wondered

“WHICH movies have been updated and WHAT the change was?”.

Well, not anymore, because with today’s v23 update we are introducing a nice report that answers just that. Also, this updates makes it easier to update IMDb Ratings for your entire collection in one go.

New “Updated IMDb Ratings & Votes” report screen

After you run Update IMDb Ratings (via the menu), you will now get a nice report screen, showing you exactly which movies have been updated and what the old/new Rating was, or the change in Nr of Votes was.

The screen automatically sorts by biggest change in IMDb Rating, but you can click the “Votes” column if you want to see the biggest amount of added votes for movies!

  • Click the “Rating” column: will show the list of updated movies sorted by the change in Ratings.
  • Click the “Votes” column: will show the list of updated movies sorted by the change in Nr of Votes.

Easily update IMDb Ratings & Votes for all movies in one go

The menu item in the “CLZ Core” menu, to update IMDb Ratings and Votes, has been modified to automatically update the IMDb Ratings and Votes for ALL movies in your collection.
(previously it only did the currently selected movie or movies).
