Eric's Movie Database is a software program to organize and manage movie collections. The lightweight application offers all the features that movie collectors except from a management application.
The software program concentrates on the collection aspect unlike other movie databases who desperately try to offer a unique feature that distinguishes themselves from other programs in the category.
EMDb is closely tied to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) which it uses to look up and retrieve information about movies. It takes only 15 seconds from entering a movie title to search on IDMb to add it to the local collection of movies.
It can take more depending on the information that you want to add or change before a movie gets added to the database. A hit on IMDb usually fills out many information about a movie automatically including information about actors, the plot, director, the year it was published, its genre(s) and duration while other information that are source specific have to be filled out manually instead.
Source specific means the medium the movie is available in, for example DVD, CD, VHS or a computer video format.
All movies that are added are listed in one central database which can be sorted in various ways. A search options is available to search movie collections using various parameters like genre, title or actors. One interesting feature of the search is that all information that have been added are available in menus which means that you can either enter the director manually or click on the name in the list instead.
The movie database comes with an export and print function and can also keep track of loaned movies easily. Eric's Movie Database is fast and responsive. It might appeal to users who want to quickly organize their movie collection without the added noise that other applications in the category produce.
