I've successfully managed to modify the source code so that the Movie schema type includes Review and Rating, but the one thing that I'm stuck at, and will probably require a huge amount of modification, is that I can't link the Director/Actor pages to their respective pages, which would be a nice feature if added.

We plan on adding pieces (and additional schema types) so adding reviews can be done. Keep in mind that any changes you make will be wiped out on update.

Question re: linking actor / director: would these be internal pages or external?

Skgppa commented Dec 11, 2012

Yes, I've made backup and notes on what to modify incase there is a security update later on. Thank you for the headsup though.

The links would be internal. For example if it's an imdb type website, the Directory/Actor would each have their own pages, marked up with Person schema, and the movie reviews will link to those pages. It also provides the additional benefit of a increased CTR from google search as the Director and Actor pages are linked and hence more visible. Check this:

https://www.google.com/search?pws=0&q=info%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.imdb.com%2Ftitle%2Ftt0338751%2F

If they weren't hyperlinked, then they would be simple text.
