Watching last night's Philip DeFranco Show on Youtube he linked to a trailer for Atomic Blonde



This would have gone by me probably since I don't go to the theater that often anymore and I probably won't watch this there either.

But it looks fun enough to warrant a watch on Streaming or maybe even Blu-ray

How do YOU track something that might be of interest to you in the future? A (blank) Wishlist profile in DVDP? Something else?

Just curious.

I use the Flixster App.  It allows me to track films I am interested in.  It keeps track of the title from theater to Blu-ray to streaming on Netflix.

I use the Watch List in IMDB for things currently, or even not yet, in the cinema. If a Blu-ray is announced I will add it to my Wish List in Amazon and/or, if a profile is available, in DVD Profiler.

I used to use Flixster for a while, but somehow always forget "it's there"...


BUT... just because I track it, doesn't mean I regularly check by lists.

I only track movies I'm sure to buy in the future. I create a profile in my wishlist, using theater posters, cast and crew as known, and images from trailers. For example, in my wishlist, I have already rather complete profiles for movies as "Valerian and the City of Thousand Planets", "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" or"Ghost in the Shell" with Scarlett Johansonn...

I track that stuff with the lump of Swiss cheese I call a brain.  In other words, I say "Oh, I really want to see that!".  Then about 30 seconds later, it's gone.  I go to the store thinking I'll see titles that were out 6 months back that I really wanted to see, but the titles are meaningless.  I can't recall what it is I wanted to see so badly all those months back.  So I buy whatever looks interesting at the time.

Make no mistake.  As systems go, this is about the worst you could have.  It's quite unfulfilling.  But it does save me a ton of money.

I'll usually just create a manual profile in my Wishlist and put in enough information to know what it is.  I've had some things in my Wishlist for years.
