Fun Search Film is simple and easy-to-use database software to store and organize your personal collection of films and DVDs. The system is capable to store thousands of films including among other things name, description, category and cover.
Pros: Fun Search Film lets one organize oneís film collection including other DVDs, VCDs etc. Films are a common passion and there is nothing we enjoy more than a quiet evening with a good film. The only catch is that when the number of films in a collection begins increasing, the task of arranging, sorting, classifying and even remembering what we actually have becomes difficult. Fun Search Film is software specially designed for the film hobbyist and collector.
Such details as film name, description, category and cover image etc can be entered that may relate to thousands of entries. The dimensions on which the whole collection can be organized are actually Category, Country, Language, Subtitles, Actors and Rating. Major utility of any such collection is in how effectively searches can be made. One can combine several of these dimensions to form search criteria to find items. Finding a film thatís in action category, has English dialogs and subtitles in Spanish can be found right away. Tagging on ratings according to personal taste is possible so that personal favorite can be found easily too. If choosing a film by reading descriptions is a bore one can choose by cover art too. If all else fails the application can draw lots to find a film by playing a film lottery. Sharing with friends and family is easy too.
User interface is not all that superbly organized but is adequate for the purpose, could have been better. It does help enter all the information though.
Cons: Biggest issue with any such organizer is that the more effective search makes it necessary to enter as much information about an item as possible. There lies the dilemma. When adding a title a lot of entries are to be made. So if you postpone entering details, a lot of entries piles up quickly and then they do not get done.
Overall feature rich, fairly easy to use this is 3 star material.
