The data on a Movie Collection consists of three sections, a section containing global data, one containing country specific data and a third containing language specific data. While you contribute movie data though one option, these sections are stored individually. This means that a contribution to a movie collection where only country specific or language specific data is changed will only update data in the "Country Specific" or "Language Specific" section on the online service.



Original Title

The original title is the title of the movie collection in the language of the country considered the most commonly origin for the movies in the collection.


The Adult checkbox identifies titles that are specifically pornography. If either of the movies in the collection is considered adult per the movie contribution guide, this must be selected.


Movies included in a collection should be movies that are considered to be a movie sequel, meaning that it centers around the same main character or characters, and continues a story of an earlier movie.

Country Specific

Country specific is for variations that may differ from the origin country of the Movie Collection release, which means the country the title was released for. Currently this is only local Website for the Movie Collection.


The Country drop-down does not qualify as a data specification, but let's you select from which country you would like the data for the movie collection.


The website is the primary official web site of the movie collection for the selected country. Official web sites are generally operated by the production studio or distributor of the movie collection. The web site address is often provided in marketing materials, including trailers and poster art. Do not add unofficial web sites, or links to other sites such as IMDB, Wikipedia or others. If there is no official website for a collection, it may be entered in as a dash (-).


Language Specific


The Language drop-down does not qualify as a data specification, but let's you select in which language you would like the data for the movie collection.


The Title specifies the title for the movie collection in the language selected in 'Language'. If the title is shown in gray, it means that the title is not specified for the selected language, but instead is inherited from English. If the title is shown in gray, it is recommended to specify the title for the selected language and contribute it back to the service. The title can often be found on the official website for the movie collection. If an official title is not available in the language, it for movie collections may be entered in as a translation of the title in another language, or entered in as what is considered best suited, as movie collections unlike movies does not always have official titles. Since movie collections often does not have official titles, a moderator may correct the collection title after your contribution - please do not change the title contributed by another user without the involvement of a moderator. The Title is required information before contributing a movie collection to the online service.

Sort Title

The Sort Title equals the title, with exceptions of leading words, such as “The” in English, “Die”, “Das” and “Der” in Germany, and similar, where the leading word must be placed behind the title. An example would be the English Sort Title, “Simpsons, The”, and the German Sort Title “Simpsons, Die”.

Alternative Titles

Within the same language, the movie collection may have several Alternative Titles, as it can vary by country, DVD release and other reasons. List these alternate title here.


The Description specifies a description for the movie collection in the language selected in 'Language'. If the description is shown in gray, it means that the description is not specified for the selected language, but instead is inherited from English. The description can often be found on the movie's collections official website or in studio material, which is the preferred source for descriptions. If the description is shown in gray, you can click the translator button to the left of the description box, and translate the English description into the language selected. A description may be specified as a direct translation from an already existing description in another language.

Description Source

When writing a description, Description Source must come from one of these: Disc Title cover (DVD, Blu-ray, ect.); Manual text entry; Studio web site; or Wikipedia. Descriptions sourced from copyrighted web sites including IMDb and The Movie DB are not accepted.
