Rottenwood User Guide
To start, enter a movie title to the search field. A search result will be show. You can navigate through the results using your arrow keys and select the movie either by Enter on your keyboard, or double-clicking on it with your mouse. After that, you can set the movie to 'seen', 'want to see' or 'favorite', adding your notes and rating. Note that only if you set the movie to seen, want to see or favorite, it sticks in your library. To remove it, simply uncheck all these attributes.
Double-click a movie to see details. You can use the Escape key to leave the details (or click the Done button) and Command-[ Command-] shortcuts instead of clicking the Previous and Next buttons.
At the right bottom corner of the window, you can find a filter field. Even though it's just one field, more complex queries can be created:
my moviewill search for movies with title containing the phrase
my movie | genre(action)will filter the previously described search by genre - only action movies will be selected.
| director(spielberg)will show only movies directed by Spielberg.
| cast(schwarzenegger)will show only movies with Schwarzenegger in them. For convenience, there's also an alias
castfilter (i.e. you can use
| actor(schwarzenegger)as well).
- you can skip the title part and enter just
| genre(action)to filter out all action movies.
| user(great)will select all movies that you've rated with 67/100 or higher. Instead of
useryou can use
audiencefor audience ratings. Instead of
great, you can use
good, or expressions like
40+for movies rated above 40,
20-for movies rated below 20,
90-100for movies rated between 90 and 100, or
13for movies rated exactly 13.
- of course, everything can be combined together:
| audience(90+) user(90+)will show movies that both audience and you rate above 90,
| audience(90+) user(90+) genre(comedy)will show only comedies rated above 90 by both audience and critics.
Note 1: Unrated movies are actually rated as
-1, hence unrated movies will not be included in
| user(0-100), you'd need to use
user(-1), but it's better to use
Note 2: All searches are case insensitive. It doesn't
matter if you write
