We bend the rules all the time, otherwise "A Film by" credit wouldn't qualify as Director.

As has been often repeated (but not enough it seems), the rules can and will never cover every possible variation of film credits.

I wouldn't, except for:

Quote:
Exception: If a company name heads a group of crew, use the Group divider to enter the company name.


Quote:
Also use Group dividers for crew teams, included only if the crew meets the other listing requirements.


But I never quite understood the last one so I just ignore it and carry on.

Nice tool!

For additional visual verification you could also try this: Soundcard Scope

I haven't tested it on DVDs but it works well enough comparing mono and stereo tracks on Spotify, for example with The Beatles "1" (Remastered).

For older recordings you will sometimes see variations in the input signals due to channel noise but the differences are generally much smaller than for real stereo.

The main production studio is really the only studio I care about, not who paid for it.

Except none of these are genres. It's content meta data that should probably go in its own field somewhere if we want to track this.

I think genre should be limited to one field, at the most.

But the reason it went from three to five was to allow us to enter our own custom genres without having to remove any of the "official" genres. Since the custom genres are private it made no sense to increase the online fields.

A common problem with Swedish titles is that they seldom follow our general writing rules (nor do they have to). So in cases of mixed capitalisation I would be inclined to follow what's printed on the cover, especially since many times the disrespect for normal writing rules is intentional. I guess they want the titles to stand out better that way. There's also a strong influence from the English-speaking world which is often reflected in Swedish headings and titles in various printed media. In my personal database I can of course "correct" them later if I want.

The problem is differentiating between 2-channel mono and 2-channel stereo.
2-channel mono will play through the left and right speakers, just like 2-channel stereo.


Switch to Dolby Prologic Decoding. It will most certainly play 2-channel mono through the center speaker and 2-channel stereo through the left and right speakers.

This would depend on your receiver and settings, but normally mono audio should play through the center speaker only. If the left and right channels are different you will also hear them through the left and right front speakers.

I don't know how the subtitle tracks are stored on the disc (as bitmaps maybe, rather than text?) but wouldn't the search function have to scan the whole disc to find it? That would not be very fast.

There are box sets, which are published in more than one country (e.g. Alfred Hitchcock Collection). In this case I would assign an original title.


But then what would be the "original" country of the box set if it was released in multiple locations? Whatever country happened to release it first?

What about film that was shot in color but made b&w in post?

"Paddington Bear" is the name of the original character, not the title of this movie, so it must be OCB.

I would only classify it as commentary if it was recorded specifically for the film. It can go off on tangents of course but it has to have been commissioned for the feature in question, and not just be some random interview/panel discussion from years ago.

If it's helpful, I would add it.

For a "2 movie collection" I would probably drop it. Who cares?

8/3 - The Shape of Water ***½ (maybe I wasn't in the right mood but it didn't move me emotionally)
16/3 - Tomb Raider *** (tough girl but boring and predictable script)
24/3 - Annihilation **** (seen on Netflix, sadly it got no threatrical release in Sweden)
2/4 - Ready Player One ***** (I really enjoyed this, worth a re-visit I think)
23/5 - Solo: A Star Wars Story ***½ (not great, but better than expected)
3/8 - Mission Impossible: Fallout ****

I don't think "Thanks to" qualifies as an acting credit. But sure, if you can personally verify that all these people actually appear in the film...

In this case you even could argue that the US cut is an easteregg

Certainly not! The definition of easter egg in the rules:
Quote:
Easter Eggs are extra features hidden on the disc and not accessible through an obvious menu option.

The US cut is not hidden. It is accessible by selecting Filmstart Englisch from the menu.


That is pretty far from obvious imo. Since you started this thread I guess that was not what you expected either.

Seems to happen on laptops from time to time but removing the device in Device Manager, rebooting and Detect Hardware Changes usually cures it. But it seems like you have tried that. Could be a hardware malfunction. Also check that Wifi/wireless is enabled in BIOS settings.

A few making-of documentaries have been released as feature films, although I suppose those are rare and usually to be found on their own discs.
