creative way of filtering checking rating of movies from HD?

Click for full size
UPDATE - my idea #1
so a friend has a 2TB drive with a ton of movies - just in one massive folder...

well I want to check which ones are good...

what is a good way to do that?

well one idea that I have is to check them against say IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes rating ...

any other ideas?

well selecting the folder/file, copying the name - going into a browser and pasting the name seems so lame...

I'm thinking there must be some easier / quicker way I could do that?

let's think?


any ideas are welcome...

I have one idea ... but I'll post it later...

thank you...

===================

UPDATE


well here is my idea

what I came up with

so the folder has hundreds of movies...

so I do a CMD command of

x:>tree > c:\temp\x_drive.html

I do PRE tags before and after so it all shows up as intended

and that goes on into the left frame

now on the right frame I have either IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes or my own custom script that will lead both sites

OR for now I found www.moviegr.am it seems to be a good rating aggregatior from IMDB, RT and metacritc.com and a preview and a short description...

so I just highlight and drag-drop into moviegr.am search box ...

and if I like it I drag drop the name into the textarea in frame above...

this way I can filter and get cream of the crop movies... and etc...

what do you think?

what things can I improve?

but I'm all for any other amazing ideas...

than you...

How do you define "which ones are good"?

Media streaming programs like Plex and XBMC display the ratings, genre, and synopsis; I think XBMC will even link to a trailer.

If you're looking for an automated way, I don't know that you would be satisfied with the results since "liking" something (e.g. a movie) or thinking something is "good" can be quite subjective.

Media Center Master will grab the rating. Then you just have to parse the XML file.

Or My Movies.

XBMC looks nice getting it...
