Just tried to use the advanced title search.

Selection query on results page after clicking "Search" was displayed as:

--------------------------------------------------------
Feature Film Released at least 2012-01-01 User Rating between 6 and 10 Action, Comedy, Crime, Fantasy, Film-Noir, Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Thriller English (Sorted by Popularity Descending)

No results. 
-----------------------------------------------------------

Would have expected hundreds with these criteria, but nothing was found ...

Are these ANDs or ORs ? ?

Action, Comedy, Crime, Fantasy, Film-Noir, Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Thriller

AND = all of the above
OR = any of the above

Hi, urshurak. It's probably not broken. You have to understand that there might not be a single title that belongs to the Action genre and the Comedy genre and the Crime genre and the Fantasy genre and the Film-Noir genre and the Horror genre and the Mystery genre and the Sci-Fi genre and the Thriller genre. Do you understand?

Jeorj  is correct - you are looking for a title that contains all of the criteria you mentioned, of which none exist.

Ah, ok, got it - I thought the multiple checkboxes represented "OR"s not "AND"s

Fair enough, close this
