I like it. It's a bit too minimalistic for my taste to be honest, but I think this is a very good start.
Cheers, I keep on changing things, too indecisive for this haha, yeah I always seem to go minimal, although the more time I spend in Photoshop, the more complicated this seems to be getting, ahaha, who knows where it will end?!

I tried some variants and felt that it wasn't always easy to identify the selected cdArt/Poster without this, as if it was a naturally dull image, the dim on the others wouldn't be enough to differentiate it.
I think maybe a shadow would be too dark, I;ll try a glow and see how that looks. To be honest, a lot of the design is limited by my vary basic-level skills and nothing more!
It's a shame that's your favourite as that's my least original! It's a riff on the similar gallery view used in the Kodi skin ReFocus, but with a few differences plus flags and logo option.
This looks great too, but again - the white border should maybe be a shadow instead? Really think that you should have a movie background on that screen... http://i.imgur.com/mmXUETzl.jpg
It comes across better in the video that HitcherUK made (second post in this thread), but that is just an overlay screen that goes on top of whatever's underneath.
But because it's so minimal, a slight pause will cause the screen to fade and then this info shows up. The dim was perhaps too strong originally, so I've tweaked it so it's clearer to see the art behind.
Do you mean it would be better like this? Or just that it was so dark before it looked like a plain black screen? Do you think it is still too dark?
The browsing through the movies is not a minimalistic text. Should there be an option to use logos instead? We have a lot of great HD logos for both movies and TV here on fanart.tv
Yeah I've got logo alternatives for most views (if you check out the full galleries here you can see them but I didn't want to put too many pics in this post: http://quizkid.imgur.com/
). So the most minimal would probably be this view (with title or logo - and the flags would be optional on/off):
