I would rather try to convince IMDB (It means to convince IMDB) to  
release their data with an easy format to parse. Specifically when  
you know that many of the data come from the Web community itself.

I wish IMDB had a more restful database.

The movie "les 400 Coups" could have different access


You could even have the full list of things in RDF. That would be  
more than great.

There are plenty of data out there that are rich but still not really  
accessible in an easy way.

    * IMDB database
    * Trailers lists of Apple and Yahoo for example.
    * An independant resource for ISBN (Vendor neutral)
	There is progress on this front
	Ex: http://worldcatlibraries.org/wcpa/isbn/0395720427

To create a format, you should first explore IMDB and other movies  
site. And see what is the minimal information. Look at all weblogs  
which talk about movies. I do that often too.
