I, like I’m sure everyone else on this site, get through a fair amount of film viewing. The problem I can have is forgetting some of the movies I have seen. I wondered if a piece of software existed whereby I could add a film to a list, perhaps give it a grade, even a short review. I have found a couple of programs that do this for one’s DVD collection – but they’re protracted and unwieldy. However, I have found nothing geared towards just film watching. At present I just mark them off in an old Halliwell’s Film Dictionary.
What do other people do?
Does such a piece of software exist?
If you’re doing purely for yourself, why not put it all into a word document?
I keep track of every film I watch on Flixster. It sounds like exactly what you need.
My user name is adamcook82
I have an entry at the top of my blog that I just keep editing. Every time I see a film, I add it to the list. I keep track of short films, miniseries, and repeat viewings too.
Criticker.com is excellent.
Microsoft Excel, obviously; it’s programmed expressly for things like this. Why search for other programs?
Some great ideas thanks everyone, a couple of points though:
Adam – I have my onw flixster list – great for around 100 films, but I would want to list thosands of movies i.e. transfer them from the dictionary (see above) to the software – I’m not sure it would be good for that.
I have thought about Excel Dan, the trouble would be again transferring all the films across. (the blog would be similar I feel, Samantha) Also, the front-end is rather bland.
I like Criticker Erratic, that is about the closest to what I was thinking – sounds like I’m making excuses here – but it is online (I wanted something that I could use offline) and again would be unwieldy I feel, if it got too big.
Yeah, Excel would be the simpliest solution.
