IMDb Rating


Update the IMDb rating of all local movies. Movies without IMDb ratings or updated the longest time ago are prioritized.


Movary scrapes the IMDb website for the ratings. Changes to the IMDb website structure can break the scraping and have to be fixed. This happens from time to time. Please report problems so that this can be quickly handled.
