Movie Explorer Overview

What is Movie Explorer? Movie Explorer is an app that scans all internal, external, and network drives for digital movie files and saves them in an attractive movie catalog for offline browsing, searching, tracking, sharing, and more. The app matches digital cinema movie files automatically with movie titles using metadata provided by TMDb. Users can find and play movies using the search box or one of the many sidebar filters. The app also offers a special Info view that shows all movie metadata, actors, and more in a separate window. Users can upgrade to Movie Explorer Pro, which allows them to add Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD discs by scanning their barcodes, import their iTunes or Apple TV library, catalog their TV show files and discs, and manage them using the special TV Shows view. With the PRO upgrade, users can also mark movies and episodes as watched or unwatched, rate and review movies and episodes, add movies and episodes to the Watchlist for easy access, define their own filters and lists, and share their collection. The app runs natively on Apple Silicon and Intel Macs and supports Touch Bar, Dark Mode, and Accent color. The app offers monthly and annual subscriptions for the PRO upgrade.

Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By Trey Spencer

    Great Free App

    This App does everything it says it will do, and it does it well. The movies are layed out beautifully and it pulls all the correct information about 95% of the time including HD artwork (and it's pretty painless to fix the few mistakes). I also like that you can get info on each movie and search for additional movies in your collection with the same actors/actresses/etc. Also, you can choose different artwork for the movie if you want. What would push me towards buying the Pro version is the abilty to sort my movies by a name of my choosing (kind of like Plex does). Right now movies like the Planet of The Apes Trilogy and Star Wars and Jurrasic Park/World are spread throughout the app. I want the ability to be able to have a 'sort name' or something to that effect that would let me just label them Star Wars 1, 2, 3 etc. so they'd be layed out next to each other and in order while still actually displaying the official movie names on the app browser itself.

    incredibly Slick

    Does exactly what the avid movie watcher with internet and a VPN would want from an organizer app. I wish I used this years ago. I would have ended up watch a lot more films rather than leaving them unwatched after forgetting what they are and why I downloaded in the first place. Stellar app. One of my top finds this year. I purchased the TV upgrade because price was more than fair for this exceptional app which is free if you don’t want the TV functionality. As you can probably tell I’m very happy !!

    99% what I've been looking for

    I've been using Movie Explorer for about two years now. I love it so much that I'm writing a review and I never write reviews for apps. I have over 5000 movies and 2000 TV episodes saved to hard drives. Movie Explorer catalogs them extremely well. The only negative is that it is very difficult (and sometimes impossible) to catalog anything not listed in the OMDB. But that flaw is really a flaw of OMDB and Movie Explorer's relianceon OMDB for metadata.

    I Wish I found this app first.

    I wasted a lot of time on other apps that were clumsy, buggy and hard to understand. This app is a dream come true! On my first day I managed to load about 900 movies and TV shows. Much joy here! Update: I’ve had Movie Explorerfor a while now and all I can say is: Most Excellent! I’ve managed to quite easily catalog my movie and TV collection of almost 24 Terrabytes into Movie Explorer and it runs just as slick and as fast as when I had only a few hundred movies entered. I’m planning on adding another 8 Terrabyte disk this month and I’m confident Movie Explorer will handle it no problem. Note to Developer: Is there any chance you could create a companion program called: Music Explorer? That would bring much joy. Kim
