I love this widget, but for some reason my one isn't working anymore...

Maybe IMDB has changed something on their website.

Looks great...
I would love to see the rank of the movie, at least for the top 250 or so...
Anyway, great widget...

The only downside is that it lacks the user vote count. A lot of movies that have a small number of votes have skewed ratings. It's nice to compare the star count with the vote count. Other than that this widget is awesome.

Lovely, minimalist widget. Just enter the film name and it will query the internet movie database and return the average user rating for the film and a thumbnail. If you don't know the full name just type in a couple of words and it will return a list from which you can select the film you're interested in. I hadn't realised how much I used this program until IMDB changed something and Punk didn't work for a few days until this new release! I also have a widget that gives me all the TV programme times, so I can check the film ratings so easily. And, if you want to know more just click on the film name and you'll be taken straight to the review.

Go on, download it. You've nothing to lose and everything to gain!

You talked me into it, downloaded it and gave it a spin. You're right, it is a nice little widget.
