If you download movies every day, you will quickly find yourself stuck with so many unorganized files with no way of knowing which is which. While media centers like Boxxee do a good job of organizing movies, sometimes you just need a tool that is lightweight and gets the job done, such as Movie Monkey. This tool automagically checks for information online for the movie files in your hard drive.
