    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to create something where I could sort my movies based on the number of stars that they were given (I think this is from IMDB). There is a user rating, a users rating base 10 that I can add a dynamic menu item for or I could add an empty menu item and set some filters. The filters also have the user rating and user rating base 10 but there is also a popularity filter. One problem that I have is I don't know what values can be put into the filter. Is it 1-10? Is it 1-100? Is it some other thing? It would be cool if I could get a list of all films that were 10 stars or better than 7 stars, or between 4-5 stars.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The rating given from IMDb or another site is not the User Rating / User Rating Base 10, those are the rating fields that you give a movie. I think the one you are after is score, and I believe its decimal value from 1 - 10 e.g. 1.0, 1.1, 1.2...,9.9,10.

    The user rating base 10 is populated from the trakt plugin so it can store your non-rounded user rating as the default field that comes with MovingPictures was only ratings from 1 - 5.

    The rating fields can probably also return 0, but thats probably not something you need.

    Once I did it for myself. But for sorting by rating I used the parameter "score", which was loaded with the plot of the movie. The "score" has a value from 1 to 10 and 0 - the rating is not defined. I made 9 subcategories: from 1 to 2, from 2 to 3, etc. If you are interested, I can write more how to do it.

    Popularity field is normally reserved for the search node during the initial search to determine which movie best matches your title search. With IMDb+ I repurposed that field to use for the amount of people that voted to establish the score, but not every scraper-script might do the same. The score field is what should represent the rating of the movie, and with IMDb+ this can be configured to be IMDb score, MetaCritics score, RottenTomatoes Critics score, RottenTomatoes Audience score, or even a mix of them all with the additional option to only accept a rating if at least 20+ people have voted for the movie, as you otherwise have crew/fans vote 10/10 for a crappy movie just added.

    PS: You can just filter movies with the built in score one, ascending or descending. It is also possible to make this a view.
