This is something that I think your program really needs, and I think a lot of other people feel the same.  I think the program is fantastic, but I just can't see paying for it without this feature:

You need to make to so that 1) You could assign MORE than 1 genre to each movie.  For example, Shaun of the Dead, I would consider both horror and comedy, but as of now I can only choose one, and 2) When you sort by genre, it would be cool if you could choose a specific genre like say comedy, and then ONLY the movies in that genre would appear in the Virtual Shelf view.  

I think this would be very useful because when I have people over and we want to watch a movie, we might be in the mood to watch a specific genre like Horror, and it would be nice to have a Virtual Shelf view of just Horror movies.  Any way to make this feature happen?

Thank you for the suggestion. The genre field is to be converted to a multi-value field. And there has been a request on a "filter feature" which eventually will cover your need. Soon I'll be making plans to make them available in future versions of MediaMan.

Can the genre field be populated by connecting to imdb

Hi @ all

First I want to say that it's a great program. But i have one question.
Is there also any chance to make a feature with a statistic that shows for example how much movies of each genre or of each rating are in the database.

Well, I'll revise the statistics function, and make sure this feature will be included in future updates. Thanks for you suggestion.
