Near perfect

This app is near perfect. It's only problem is sometimes it provides the wrong information and it doesn't have the essays about the films included in the book. If these things were put into the app in an update, it would be perfect.

Excellent app for a great book

This app works flawlessly, and has so many great features, it is a nearly perfect app. I have used it to check off all the movies I've seen from the list. It lets you rate them, make notes on each movie, even upload a photo, although movie poster art is included. You get a choice of three lists: Essential, New Edition, or Complete. You can sort or filter your list by several criteria. I had been keeping the list in a spreadsheet, but this is much nicer. It is a small app, but easy to use, fast and smooth, with no glitches.

Good checklist, lousy reference

I love the ability to check off and rate movies from the 1001 films book, but other than that there's is hardly anything else to offer. The posters/images of movies have to be manually updated. There's no real film information except the absolute basics. No actors, no synopsis, no links, or trailers... not saying this has to be a comprehensive diary of each movie, but for $5 I expected more than just a checklist...
