Default Bookcase fields for a video

I'm trying to settle on the default fields for the video collection. I figure it will be mostly used for DVDs and maybe videocassettes, but I don't want to limit it too much. Right now, my default fields are:

  • Title
  • Medium - DVD, VHS, VCD, or DivX
  • Year - production or release year
  • Format - PAL, NTSC, or SECAM
  • Genre
  • Region - DVD Region Encoding
  • Nationality - country of release
  • Rating - G, PG, PG-13, or R
  • Cast - a 2-column table for the actors and their roles
  • Director
  • Producer
  • Writer
  • Composer
  • Studio
  • Language Tracks - audio language tracks
  • Subtitles - subtitle languages
  • Audio Tracks - I need a better title for this - it's for DTS, Dolby, etc.
  • Runnning Time - A numerical entry, running time in minutes
  • Color - color or b&w
  • Other Features - things like music videos, deleted scenes, etc.
  • Widescreen - a checkbox
  • Director's Cut - a checkbox
  • Plot Summary - a textbox
  • Personal Rating
  • Purchase Date
  • Purchase Price
  • Gift - a checkbox
  • Loaned - a checkbox
  • Comments

Of course, the user is free to add, modify or delete fields however they want. The default fields will be the ones that get translated, though, so I want to have a good set. I've looked at several other DVD Collection applications and these seem to be the common set of fields.
