    "I love this app purely for the option to create a wish list for my watchlist! I can't tell you the number of times I've been watching movie previews and thought "ooh" but then forgot all about the movie. With kids, it's quite a production to be able to go to a movie while it's in the theatre. But with the IMDb app, I can keep track of movies and actually catch them as a rental or on Netflix. This year I'll finally know what they're talking about at the Oscars!"

    "I wanted to like this site, but annoying features like the Movie Soul Mates interfere with my enjoyment. As with many sites of this type, it's hard to sort through non serious and non typical entries and reviews. Also, there are always going to be a large number of people, who's tastes are no where near close to yours. There are some decent recommendations, but far too many specious or otherwise useless entries. "

    "I'm a huge movie buff. We have an entire room dedicated to my DVDs and video tapes, all organized by genre and alphabetized. I love being able to see everything I watched in one place. Unfortunately, it's more difficult to do that with digital media. Enter Letterboxd. The site is a great way to keep track of all my movies. I can also quickly put together a list to send friends and family when they ask me for movie recommendations. "

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that the second most pirated item on the web is a movie? According to a 2011 statistics on Go-Gulf website, the most pirated item is pornography with 35.8%, followed by movies with 35.2%. With a large number of movies being released every year, numerous apps and websites related to movies are also increasing. For instance, IMDb, an Intenet movie database provides information about a particular movie or TV show such as its casts, production, year, other people involved, duration, and more. This application also allows users to create his or her own watchlist. IMDb is available in Google Play Store and Apple App store. Another resource for organizing movies is the Letterboxd. This application allows users to share their thoughts about a certain film. One can simply treat it as a diary to keep track of one's opinion about a certain film, or to record the films that have already been watched in the past. Resources for organizing movies is a helpful way to get organized especially for those who love films. Not only these tools provide information on certain movies, these tools also help users to get updated with the latest movies or the most watched ones. In addition, these applications also allow users to keep track of the films they have watched or create a list of movies to watch in order to help them stay organized.

    "I initially was under the impression that this world offer a physical solution for organizing my DVD collection, and was a little disappointed to find out that was not the case. However, after having cleaned out several going-out-of-business Blockbusters a few years back, I sometimes don't do a very good of keeping track of what movies I do and don't own. In that way, the Collectorz.com Movie Collector is very handy to have on hand -- I can search my personal database and find out if the movie is already in my collection, before potentially wasting the money of buying a duplicate copy. This product would be good for others who are only seeking a non-tangible way of organizing their movie and TV show collection, not for physical organization."

    "I was looking forward to trying this out as it looked promising. However, the advanced features are only available for a monthly subscription! A reasonable flat fee I could work with, but having to pay $5 a month for the app is too much for what's being offered. I'll pass. "

    "This is a nice piece of software that doesn't feel the need to support PCs for some reason, which blows. Just likes Apple and Android, even though it is designed for computers. Why exclude the OS that is the most used worldwide? Doesn't make any sense at all and can't stand it when companies do that."
