##Movie Ratings + Top250 + MPAA

This addon updates the ratings of your movies and the Top250 position from IMDb.

#####Attention: the script gets the ratings from http://omdbapi.com which are only updated once a week, so the votes can differ sometimes.

Bug reports and feature requests are very appreciated.

#####Features:

  • update the movie rating and vote count (only if something changed)
  • update the IMDb Top250 movies
  • update the MPAA rating for movies (US / DE)
  • write missing Top250 movies to the addon_data folder
  • update only movies with more than 0.1% vote increase (much faster)
  • run in background
  • run periodically
  • start parameters for skinners (see below)
  • resume movie rating update if it was cancelled
  • simple GUI to select what should be updated
  • progress bar

#####For Skinners: Create a button with the function:

RunScript( script.imdbupdate, movies [,hidden] )
RunScript( script.imdbupdate, top250 [,hidden] )
RunScript( script.imdbupdate, mpaa [,hidden] )
RunScript( script.imdbupdate, all [,hidden] )

#####ToDo:

  • better settings explanation
  • update rating of TV Shows (hard thing)
  • ask for a rating after watching a movie
  • code comments
