You guys suck!! I never even gave the tags another look until this post and now I will be tagging at least the DVDs I haven't watched yet. Who know what else I will tag for. Thanks alot. 

You can use the Watched feature for that, filtering for Not Watched.

If you haven't used it until now, you can at first set all films you have watched to either the current or the purchase date (flagging them and then using Flagged|Set Watched or similar works).

Hitchcock Films
Academy Award Winners
Academy Award Nominees
Siskel/Ebert/Roeper Top Ten Lists
CRITERION Films (surpised that I didn't see more of these on the postings)
Dvds I've never watched/films I've never seen
National Board of Review Top 10
Film Registry
AFI Top 100 (any topic)
Never watched special features 100%
Golden Globes

Lots of work to do: very much behind

Probably because the filter works just fine for those. just activate the Full Sunstring Search and type Criterion

EDIT:
Hmmm, yeah, o.k., that is assuming you are not removing the Description fields from the Titles, of course.

I set tags to remind me, as means of search for profiles, that need work/covers/crew or some other details.

Yes, but when I use movie pick it suggests everything I've not seen yet. And when I want to see a movie I don't want to get cartoons, for example, get suggested. So it helps to tag them seperately as unseen, or is there a better way?

When you startup Moviepick you can actually exclude/ include genres to your liking aswell as many other ways to point the Moviepick to a direction you wish. Its not a simply random generator you know ;-)

That's what that field is for :-).

In my opinion, the Location/Slot is there, when using disc changer. You assign there for each disc a location. I only want assign for the complete profile a location.
And more importantly, I want to be able to filter. It's important for me to find discs of the same drawer when reorganizing because another item of a film series or such is to be put into the shelf.
And I can simply tick the location and do not have to enter it via disc information edit window.

I am using Tags for the following:

If the film is in a special cut version on the DVD (e.g Director's Cut, Extended Cut).
If a film is cut to get a lower rating or even a rating.
If the features on the DVD are in German or subtitled.
If there is a trailer of the film on the DVD or only for other films.
If the DVD is "indiziert".
What I have to do (audit profil, scan new or different cover, looking for headshots)
