Films that need info updates on ICM from imdb

#1

Post by PeacefulAnarchy »

This is a thread for posting movies that need their imdb info updated on ICM.
If the info is wrong on imdb update it there. When you see the change go live on imdb, then you can post here.

Please post an ICM link (preferably a beta link) and say what needs updating.

For now only post updates for the following:
* Incorrect titles
* Incorrect/missing years
* Incorrect/missing directors
* Incorrect/missing genres
* AKAs that show up as display titles on default imdb. See this post: http://www.icmforum.com/single/?p=10014693&t=8435382
* Duplicate Entries, post links to both.

You can post for runtime updates, but only if the runtime is NOT tied to a specific country.
Image
If the runtime looks like the first case, with a country attached it will not work. Try to fix it on imdb if you like. If it looks like the second then it's fine.

We've fixed a lot of the most glaring ones, but there are probably still a lot, especially for unofficial and more obscure films, that need fixing.

original title: Rak ti Khon Kaen

it has a duplicate but you said not to mention that ahh!!!!

director: Edgar Reitz
runtime: 925 min @ 25fps (which should be correct (?), as it was made for german tv)

That one is the duplicate. Can't be fixed until duplicates are merged.

Fix the runtime on imdb. It says 90 min on imdb that's what ICM takes.
Directors take a few hours to show up so we'll see if this one went through. Not sure if the parser deals correctly with miniseries.

just so you know, in case it's a symptom of some error, known or otherwise, the director tag on the correctly titled one is wrong but doesn't look it, at first glance, but the film doesn't come up when searching for Apichatpong Weerasethakul. I think it's currently set for Apichatpong+Weerasethakul, or at least that's what the url says when clicking on the tag link.
(dupe, https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/?ta ... rasethakul which gives you all of Joe's films
correct title https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/?ta ... rasethakul which doesn't even bring up Cemetery of Splendour)

I guess you need to add to the OP that you can request info-updates from IMDb to iCM, so if it's wrong on IMDb, we can't fix it on iCM. Apparently that wasn't clear to funky.

Yeah tags don't update, I think that's low priority because it works correctly on the beta site. That's my understanding at least.

yeah the OP seems to read that the only restriction for adjusting runtime on iCM is the presence of a (Country) label on imdb.

alright. just pointing out/making sure/hoping it's not some databasing error where it looks fine with the + but it actually fugs shit up.

Well the correct runtime has to be on imdb to be updated. I thought that was clear in context. I'll rewrite.

Is it clearer now?

does all information one might want adjusted on icm need to be correct on imdb for it to be updated on icm? are the icm pages entirely reliant on the imdb information?

nevermind. question answered.

like seriously, fuck all my posts in this thread.

Yes, all we can do is initiate pull requests, not edit info manually, so it needs to be correct on imdb.

Good to know someone is aware that the merge function isn't working. I've been ignored like four times in the icm bugs-thread when mentioning it.

Anyway, Hideg napok (1968) is listed as 1966 on Imdb.

The entry for Alice Guy-Blache's Falling Leaves (1912) lists the director as "Drama," and all the other identifiers are out of place.

It still lists director as "drama" on my end, but I assume it takes a little while to show up?

Directors take a few hours to show up. It's possible that since she's uncredited that might be an issue but I don't think so

Here's another example of all identifiers having gone wild because IMDb isn't listing the director:
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/et+ ... +menneske/

I instantly had to think of the list of Dogme 95 films, which proudly conceal their directors. While it is argued on the page of Festen, probably the most popular Dogme film, that it's a rule to hide the name, on almost all of the other Dogme films I looked up the director name is listed.
If you ask me: cut the crap and enter Thomas Vinterberg for Festen. We want to be able to work and benefit with iCM and not support some dubious movement, the name of the director is known after all. It hurts the database.

I've done that first one. I'll go through that list of Dogme movies tomorrow.

I had already done it. Also, all the movies on the dogme list already have directors, except one that doesn't have a director on imdb.

It doesn't seem to have gone through, I think because she's tagged as unconfirmed on imdb. I removed that so if imdb fixes it then I'll try again.

My understanding is that both posters and duplicates are at the top of the priority list and being worked on, no eta though.

Marijn sure needs some help, he has clearly got too much on his plate - either he gets someone to help him (probably difficult in terms of finances) or delegate some of the work to volunteers.

Evstifeyka-volk (2001) has no runtime. It's just over six minutes long.

It's also a lovely animated short!

And will do on the link. This thread is a very satisfying thing to have. Is it acceptable to post here whenever we see missing info?
Edit: just read the OP more properly -- all set. Thanks, mods!

As long as it fits the guidelines in the OP (only the sections we can confirm are updating, make sure the info is correct on imdb) yeah that's why the thread is here. When we got this feature I went through hundreds of films without runtimes or with incorrect titles. I'm sure there are hundreds more, if you find them post them.

Hm. In this case I knew the runtime was six minutes because I had just watched the original. I assume such direct sourcing is acceptable as well?
