Latest software updates
I had been using your software for my comics and decided that maybe the movie program could be helpful and save me some money at the same time. So I gave the sample program a try. That was more than 5 years ago and now over 4000 movies. I love getting the notices of updates because there is something always interesting that you guys have developed that I didn't even know I needed or an update that fixes little bugs that get ironed out.
I have seen many changes in how the collection software you guys offer has evolved since 1st trying out your free trial software and am hooked. I love entering my collection into your software and you seem to make it easier and more interesting every year. I never rent the same movie twice since I started using your excellent program and have found that no matter how many movies I have in my collection I have no fear that your program can keep up with me.
I look forward to seeing all the new ways you keep improving your collection software and I really appreciate the discount offers you give every so often. I'd like to give 5 stars plus rating for how great your programs are and how quickly there are updates if any issues arise.
Cheers to many more years of our continuous relationship.
Reviews from customers
At first, it started with just a couple of movies. Some that just looked really good on the screen – Hell Boy (#1), some that I always wanted to own – Big Night (#2)….some that my kids could watch over and over again – Air Bud (#14). (Side note, kids are the number one best way to get a spouse to agree to buying a movie). Then, the dam broke. Around 2009, the Hollywood Video store in our town was going out of business and they put all their movies on sale. This was like locking an addict in a pharmacy for the night. Staring at all the films with $3 and $5 dollar price tags…I began to see a bigger mission. I started thinking that I could build a collection and leave behind a legacy. Now I wanted to own all the movies that ever had an impact on my life. The films that scared me, made me laugh, made me cry….the movies that gave me direction. I wanted to own whole genres of films. Like a Last Will and Testament, this was going to be a collection that I could leave to my kids, like a digital message, that would live on after me. A collection that my kids could see and say, “these movies were what made my dad who he was”. Instead, I came home with about 40 films and my wife and kids looked at me like I had lost my mind. It was also on this night that I almost purchased a movie I already owned…
On August 20th, 2009, I paid about $25 to a company called Bitz & Pixelz for their cataloging program Collectorz. By this time, I had about 125 movies. Amazon was constantly putting movies on sale – Father’s Day Sale, Summer Sale, etc. Movies like Batman Begins (#45), Blade Runner (#62) and Casablanca (#82) were easily available. Every week, I would get e-mails about “This Week’s Hot New Releases”…. I was hooked. Logging movies into Collectorz became a weekly ritual. I’d think long and hard about which films would take up coveted spots in the collection – Riddick (#100), Hair (#200) and transformers 2 (#500). By the time Captain America came out in 2011, I had hit 1000 movies.
About a month ago, Avengers Infinity War became number 2000. My friends all have links to my Collectorz collection on their phones and I sync my collection across my home computer and all my devices. I travel a lot, so often on a late night flight, I’ll bring up my collection just to look at the cover art, read the plots and peruse the list actors, producers and actors. Many a Friday night, there will be a group of my kid’s friends huddled around the computer perusing the collection for a movie to watch – “sort by action”, “no, romance”….”don’t be crazy, comedy” – can be heard over the mouse clicks. Collectorz, being a one stop shop for the collection, triggers someone to ask to see the trailer, or ask “who stars in that one?”
I dread the day that they stop making Blu-Ray films. I love receiving the movie, holding it in my hands, logging it into my Collectorz catalog….and filing it on my shelf. In fact, some films are still in their wrapper - My wife and I joke that this will be our retirement. Fourteen years ago, I started something I hope I’ll never finish…and Collectorz is logging every step of this journey.
Then I found Collectorz.com and I was in pure Heaven! I love how I can have all of the information that's listed in the CLZ cloud/library in my database - now I have well over 2,985 videos (DVD's and Blu-ray's only) and I cherish the software and the company who makes it!
I can't thank you enough!
Fast forward a few years My collection increased and I was looking for a way to catagorize the movies. I started of with Quattro Pro for Windows, after that Excel. It didnt quite did the job for me. I was looking for different ways of catagorizing and Excel just could not get that job done. Finally in 2010 I found what I was looking for. That was the first time that I purchased the moviecollector software. Since the early beginning of using it I have been more than happy with it. It suits the needs I so desperately was looking for. I now have a list consisting of move than 2500 movie titles. And that is only just the beginning. I expect the list when finished (will it ever be) to consist of approximately 12000 titles. So I have a lot of work to do. The way of catagorizing, of should I say a list within a list, is also magnificent! Since a few months I merged all my seperate lists into one big movie collection. I have for example a seperate list of movies, music dvd’s, cabaret, documentaries and pro wrestling. With the help of your great support, who showed much patience, I now merged that into one big list that I can upload in the cloud. I really can say that the movie collector is THE solution for me. Just the software I hoped for all those years. And with the update plan I always get the newest updates!
I highly recommend Movie Collectorz for anyone who wants to keep track of their collection and prevent duplicate buying. With the mobile app there are no more bulky printouts to drag around and the camera works as a scanner so you can add new purchases immediately. Insurance companies will either love or hate you as you now have an accurate list of your movies. There are also features for lending titles to friends and family, so you know what is not with you at any time. Check it out, it is well worth the investment!
Now on to comics and books. Ah, the Collectorz life.
I was lucky enough to discover this app and it was perfect for this chore. The scanning feature for the barcodes was extremely helpful, although I soon found many in my collection that weren't in their database, that I had to add, including adding a photo of the unique addition that I had that didn't match their photos. 1500+ titles later and I was done!
Now I just add new ones incrementally and I no longer end up buying ones I already own!
I have had times in the past when I would see a movie on sale and think to myself, "Do I own this?" I would proceed to buy the movie not realizing I already own a copy(or two, thanks Spaceballs and beer.) Now I can just take a look at this app if I'm not sure and know what I have and don't need to buy.
I also completely support this app for the sake of buying actual movies and not just downloading. Support the artists and film makers. Buy the movies. Complete your collection. Enjoy the stories.
51 blu-ray, 1.065 dvd, 18 iTunes, 125 laserdisc, 1 umd, 55 video cd, 1 video disc, 166 vudu and 53 other = 1.536 and growing.
Totdat ik Movie Collector ontdekte: jullie heetten toen geloof ik nog Bitz & Pixelz of zoiets. Toen ik Movie Collector had geïnstalleerd dacht ik: Dit is het! Hier heb ik jarenlang naar gezocht! Vervolgens ben ik wekenlang elk vrij moment bezig geweest met het inkloppen van ongeveer 1200 speelfilms (ruim 600 VHS-videobanden) De link in Movie Collector met IMDB bestond toen nog niet, en ik had bij het opnemen van de films gaandeweg al veel informatie vastgelegd vanuit filmcatalogi en TV-programmagidsen (met name Veronica en FilmNet). Toen eindelijk alles in Movie Collector was ingevoerd had ik dus een fantastische database van mijn filmverzameling, met acteurs, regisseurs en noem maar op. Ik heb steeds ook de nieuwe releases van de software gevolgd en ik zag de mogelijkheden groeien. Mijn VHS-banden heb ik later verkocht aan een andere filmliefhebber, maar mijn verzameling bouwde zich geleidelijk weer op via DVD's zowel zelf opgenomen als gekocht.
Een beetje op dezelfde wijze ging het met Music Collector. Toen ik mijn verzameling CD's wilde vastleggen kende ik Movie Collector al een poosje , dus toen ben ik meteen Music Collector gaan aanschaffen. Ik beheer er ongeveer 800 CD's mee (meest klassiek). Beide programma's zou ik niet willen missen.
Het gebruik van de software is bij mij de laatste tijd wel veranderd: ik neem minder films op dan vroeger, met name ook door het gigantische aanbod wat er is. Ik ontvang hier Film1 en HBO en ik neem eigenlijk alleen de echt sterke films op (omdat ik die wellicht nog wel eens wil terugzien) en series, omdat ik het liefst de afleveringen ervan achter elkaar bekijk. Voor muziek heb ik Spotify en ik koop dus minder muziek. Wel download ik soms albums via iTunes en die beheer ik dan weer in Music Collector. Kortom. het blijft op de een of andere manier doorgaan.
Dit is wel zo ongeveer mijn verhaal over de Collectors. Voor het beheer van media is er niks beters, dat hoeven jullie niet meer aan te tonen. O ja, dat zou ik nog bijna vergeten. Ik gebruik apps voor Movie en Music Collector op mijn iPhone.
Being able to access my movie list has been most enjoyable; in fact my whole family has a renewed interest and enjoyment since everyone can be reacquainted with lost loves, or at the very least infatuations.
The PC program offers great information, including episode descriptions for TV shows, while the iPad/iPod/iPhone version gives limited but more than enough information to make selections and purchasing choices.
That little scanner is awesome, and without it I never would have had the patience to compile a full list of movies, let alone be able to search for actors/directors/genre, etc
At one sale (two stores going out of business) I bought 130 DVDs in one day! (At $1 a piece!) There's no way I could have managed so many new arrivals in such short order without your program. It's been invaluable to my collecting.
I tell everyone it was obviously designed by people who understand collecting because it has every piece of information a collector would want to know or enter.
I may be your biggest fan. And on top of that, all this wonderful, personal service from you. (I even tried to encourage one of my retailers to carry your software. But he felt it would be just as easy, and cheaper, for his customers to buy direct from you. -- But they need to know about it first.)
Your ipod application I tell people is my favorite application on the planet! It is essential for me to take whereever I shop to see if I already have a title.
I also bought your Music Collector. One of these days I'll tackle THAT other extensive collection of mine. As slow as work as been (I'm a freelance video editor - produced a lot of bonus features for Disney DVDs, in fact) you'd think I'd have the time. But I guess my "spare time" this year has been spent shopping!
I had to buy a new video projector a year ago. I went overboard and bought a very high-end machine (SIM 2). DVDs now look so great, the projector just sits up on the ceiling, and like Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors, says, "Feed me. FEED ME!"
First let me say I have been searching for sometime now for a better way to ensure that I don't repurchase DVD's I already own. I have a collection of DVD's and Bluerays of well over 2000 titles so remembering them is getting hard! I found this program while searching for a video store system thinking that was the only way I would be able to keep track of what titles I have and who I have loaned them to friend wise.
The software is a amazing, it's easy to use and simple to follow. I am amazed at how very little time it takes for a newbie to pick it up and run with creating a list. I now have all my movies listed and with the added iPhone app CLZ Movies, I can now ensure that I take my collection list everywhere I go!
The communication from the Collectorz team has been second to none, making me feel like I not only purchased a great functioning software I am part of a greater community. I have no hesitation in recommending this awesome software bundle to anyone, it not only saves you money (from repurchasing titles) it saves you time (taking them back to the store because you already own them!)
Look forward to the next release guys! Keep up the great work!
