What's the point in having a massive database and no advanced search option? It would be nice to be able to search by year or by a certain genres.

Thanks for the link, but you missed the point. I was asked to evaluate the android app. This link defeats the purpose for an app. If you incorporate this link with the app it will be epic, until then its not worth using.

I did not see you are using the "android app" in your original message

Sorry about that. We have a bug at the moment which is causing random data drop outs on the mobile apps.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Refine search for imdb app.

Hi there,
I frequently use imdb to find new viewing content and sometimes I stumble across some very intriguing tv shows or movies.. However I find that I've done this to a point now where I've exhausted all the search criteria on the app.
For instance if I were to look for a type of movie by genre I can get the top 100 movie of a certain genre, but what about number 101?
If I search top 250 it covers all genres so any movie I see in there chances are I have already discovered it.
I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of refinement available when searching the genres or when searching in general.
For instance
-Years movie was released between
-between star rating x.x and x.x
-country
-nominations
-type (movie, tv show, short, anime etc)
-genre

I hope this can be done as it will not only help the users but also the film industry.. If there are many people who use the refinement it means previously undiscoverable shows or movies now become easily discoverable and in turn hopefully sales for these film makers increase

I need an app that can help me pick which movie to watch by entering genres, actors, themes, ratings, and such things.  I already have a portfolio for the idea and just want someone from IMDb to take a look at it.  I think it could make IMDb a lot of money.
