Scans a given directory of movies, tries to match the filename to the movie, and displays basic IMDB information such as rating. Movies can then be selected and copied to another directory.
Someone handed me a drive with 500 (legally obtained) movies. Luckily the filenames typically matched the title of the film. I thought to myself, wouldn't it be nice if someone could write a program to look up the ratings on IMDB and allow me to copy only
movies with a 6+ rating. Then I said self, you could write that program. A lunchtime and a bit in the evening later and here it is. First I found
IMDB web services
here on codeplex. Then it was just a matter of reading the files, looking them up, and copying them. It is dog slow, but does the job.
