    @Lichloathe for your issue I have to actually fire up my development machine and I have been messing around with network/system upgrades that prevent me from doing that. Procrastinating is also not helping, but I know that your issue is going to take me multiple hours, if not days, and I keep pushing it off :(

    The core of the issue is that IMDb.com detects you are not from the US and does things slightly different, which is also difficult for me to emulate, but I can usually find some free proxy somewhere. If you were fortunate enough to have a US based VPN that you can route Moving-Pictures requests through then it should work, because I've added more movies recently myself and there was no missing field that I could see.

    What I did notice was that plots are chopped off, because they decided to change the way the HTML works.

    So, really want to rewrite it from the ground up and fix all those issues on whatever new output IMDb.com currently settled on, but it also differs per movie, especially when they sneak in custom views on in-theater-now, or coming-soon entries.

    They have now started to embed JSON data as well, so ideally that is parsed, but I keep forgetting to ask @ltfearme if the Moving-Pictures script engine has support to directly parse JSON the way I can do with XML. Worst case I can manually extract it via Regular Expressions, but would not be a recommended approach.

    I've marked it in my calendar again for Saturday, so fingers crossed family does not drag me out of the house (y)

    Thanks RoChess for the update, no need to rush things, I totally undersstand.
    I don't have access to a US VPN but if you need anything else don't hesitate to contact me.
    Cheers
