IMDB missing details

Was wondering if others are seeing the same or if I broke something on my PC, but IMDB lookups are not filling in all the details.

I only get actors and year, everything else is being missed, only started a day or so ago.

Your pc is fine. Every so often, IMDb will change something on their website and information will not be picked up until the software is updated. Having several choices for getting the info is a real plus during these times - I use tMDb primarily, and IMDb as backup. Before too long, there should be a newer version of AMM.

Thanks, I will try tmdb in the meantime.

Thanks for the answer to this question. I just used tMDb for the first time and it worked fine while waiting for the AMM program update. I was stuck trying to add an older film to my database (The Terminal, an old Tom Hanks film that I missed when it was in the theaters in 2004). BTW, a nice feel-good film.

I just used the TmDB database to upload Black Widow since the AMM current import function with IMDb is still not working. The character information was a real mess. Actor names & character names repeated 2-5 times with identical information. Many, many very minor characters included (may not be an issue for some users but will certainly make the record quit large unless edited down).
