All My Movies is an easy to use program that lets you keep track of the movies you own. The program has an intuitive interface and a great number of features that make it one of the best options for users seeking a tool to keep their movie collection organized.
You will have several options when adding movies to the database. You can add movies using information from 15 different movie databases (IMDB, Amazon, and others), you can also add a movie by scanning the barcode printed on every DVD/Blu-Ray case, or by manually entering the information. Once the correct movie is chosen the application will automatically add all pertinent information about the movie to the database, this includes cover art, synopses, casts lists, and more.
You will also have the option of adding movies to Wish lists, mark movies as seen, and keep track of movies that are loaned to others. Reports can be printed with this information as well as other information about the movies stored in the database.
Installing All My Movies was flawless. All you need to do is download the application installer from the Bolide Software page and run the installation file. All My Movies will only run on a PC running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 and has no additional requirements.
The trial version of the application it is only good for 30 days from date of installation after that you can purchase the full version fro $44.95.
Setup and Adding Movies
Users running All My Movies in Trial Mode will notice that thereâ€™s a movie database that has already been set up that contains several movies. You will have the option of creating your own databases (with the paid version) which can then be shared with other computers on a network or with friends. Because this guide covers the trial mode and the creation of the database is not possible, Iâ€™ll skip over to the adding movies section of this review.
To add movies to All My Movies is easy and the options are plenty. You can add movies using the Movie card which automatically pulls information from IMDB for the movie title you are entering. IMDB is not the only data provider available, if the movie that is being added does not appear in IMDB you can also use other online databases (in other languages)to locate the movie information you need. Did I mention that All My Movies automatically populates all the fields for you?

You can add DVD and BluRay movies by inserting the disc into your computer and asking All My Movies to read the information from the Disc. If you happen to have a ton of movies and canâ€™t imagine sitting there for hours entering titles, selecting movie types, etc. then there is another option which makes movie entry much easier. All My Movies allows users to enter movies into the database using the barcode found on the DVD/Blu-Ray case using a barcode scanner.
I found that adding movies to the database using the IMDB option was the easiest. I also added a movie using the numbers on a barcode and found it to be quick and easy.
Browsing Movies in Database
You have added your entire movie collection to All My Movies, now what? If youâ€™re thinking about buying a new movie or renting something you think you might have, all you have to do is perform a search to locate the movie on the database and save some money.

Okay, so using All My Movies to track what movies you own isnâ€™t that exciting. Remember how All My Movies pulls information from IMDB? Rather than visiting the web each time you want to find the rating or information about a film you can quickly find the information you are seeking about a film with All My Movies.

All My Movies allows users to track the movies that have been loaned out and returned, so if you have a relative who swears they never borrowed a movieÂ you can use the record on your database (with time and date) that says otherwise. I also donâ€™t see a reason why a mom-and-pop video rental store canâ€™t use All My Movies to manage their customer and movie databases. This application would be perfect in that scenario as well.

All My Movies is a great application with a lot of potential. The program has an intuitive interface that makes adding movies a snap and has a great feature set that makes managing your movie collection as fun as it is to watch the actual movies. I donâ€™t find the $44.95 to be an appealing price for an application like this especially when multiple licenses are needed in a single household. I think that if the developers at Bolide Software drop the price to something like $24.95 for the home user and offer a beefed up version for small movie rental businesses at a higher price, then pricing would be more reasonable. Other than price I think that All My Movies is one of the best options for users seeking a tool to keep their movie collection organized.
