Batch retrieve rating from tt* code list

I am a movie collector and I carefully tracked my movie collection in a excel database with title, tt* IMDB code, rating (x/10) and some other information.

I'd like to refresh the current IMDB rating for all the movies in the list (5k+) but doing it by hand is a pain in the a$$.

I am a total noob with APIs. Is there a way, given a tt* code list, to retrieve rates (x/10) ? Perhaps correct movie names too in my language (italian)?

If you create a custom list on IMDb, and add each title by copy/pasting the tt* code into the Add box,

you can then Export the result in a .csv file. The export will have the following information:
Const [tt*]
Created [date]
Modified [date]
Title Type
IMDb Rating
Runtime (mins)
Num Votes
Release Date
Your Rating
Date Rated
