IMDB Movie Explorer [Windows]

9 Gen/10

Did you ever have to make a selection of several movie files from a collection of lots of them? Could be because you plan to take some of the best movies on your next holiday trip or that your friend was nice enough to provide you access to a movie collection on a terabyte hard drive leaving you with the selection problem?

IMDB Movie Explorer tries to solve that problem for you. Now everyone would be able to sort the movies manually but this could take quite some time especially if the movies are not known or if there is not enough time to make a manual selection.

The portable program for the Windows operating system can scan a folder on a connected hard drive to compare the file names of all file types with movie titles at IMDB. The length of the process depends on the amount of files found in the folder of the hard drive.

The initial release is working best if the file name is identical to a movie title at IMDB. It creates some false positives or will not recognize the movie at all if the file name is different. It should also be noted that it works best with English movie titles as those are predominant at IMDB. IMDB Movie Explorer will furthermore display a rating for each movie that has been identified which the user can use to make the selection.

Movies with a checkmark can then be copied to another hard drive. The idea is to sort the movies by rating and copy only the movies with the best IMDB rating. The program works as it is but the limited identification routine makes it less useful as it could be. An option to identify movies manually would be handy.

Other options that the developer should consider are copying movies that total a specific file size or identifying movie genres along with ratings. IMDB Movie Explorer can be downloaded from the program’s Codeplex profile page.
