IMDb REST API Version 3

I spent the last couple of days to fully reconsider and rewrite my IMDb REST API (formerly known as IMDb Fetcher) and I am happy to announce version 3 and the new website.

What’s New:

  • Improved speed.
  • Ease of use.
  • The request by title or name has been removed and now all requests are done by IMDb ID:
    // http://imdb.wemakesites.net/api/tt0120782 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120782/)
    {	"status": "success",	"code": 200,	"message": "ok",	"data": {	"id": "tt0120782",	"type": "title",	"title": "Palmetto",	"year": "1998",	"description": "A recently released ex-con gets involved in a fake kidnapping scheme that turns very real.",	"certificate": "",	"duration": "114 min",	"released": "1998-02-20",	"cast": [	"Woody Harrelson",	"Elisabeth Shue",	"Gina Gershon",	"Rolf Hoppe",	"Michael Rapaport",	"Chloë Sevigny",	"Tom Wright",	"Marc Macaulay",	"Joe Hickey",	"Ralph Wilcox",	"Peter Paul DeLeo",	"Hal Jones",	"Salvador Levy",	"Richard Booker",	"Mikki Scanlon"	],	"genres": [	"crime",	"drama",	"mystery",	"romance",	"thriller"	],	"directors": [	"Volker Schlöndorff"	],	"writers": [	"James Hadley Chase",	"E.

It is excellent, and few people know about it. It's a very underrated film.It had an interesting and unpredictable story with some very neat twists which a good noir might have. I'm not really sure I liked the very ending, but I sure enjoyed the rest of it. That entertainment included ogling a couple of sexy female leads, played by Elisabeth Shue and Chloe Sevigny and I loved the wonderful colors in this movie. Not only was the cinematography great, so was the soundtrack with some solid blues tracks. The guitar playing reminded me of the Ry Cooder's work in "Midnight Run."The movie was labeled by some national critics as a "poor man's 'Body Heat.'" Well, that's fine with me because I liked "Body Heat" a lot, too. If you liked that, you should like this movie, too.Yes, there are a few holes in the story but nothing that damaged the storyline to any degree. Woody Harrelson was good in the lead and Gina Gershon and Michael Rapaport provided solid performance in supporting roles.",	"rating": "9/10"	}	}
  • New search by keywords, within any IMDb category – title, name, keywords, characters, companies, etc. The result is an array, containing all of the data found from the query, for example:

Happy holidays!
