Imdb Top 250 Movies Pdf Download _BEST_

By late 1990, the lists included almost 10,000 films and television series, correlated with actors and actresses appearing therein. On October 17, 1990, Needham developed and posted a collection of Unix shell scripts that could be used to search the four lists, and thus the database that would become the IMDb was born.[27] At the time, it was known as the "rec.arts.movies movie database".

IMDb, unlike other AI-automated queries, does not provide an API for automated queries. However, most of the data can be downloaded as compressed plain text files and the information can be extracted using the command-line interface tools provided.[57] There is also a Java-based graphical user interface (GUI) application available that is able to process the compressed plain text files, which allows a search and a display of the information.[55] This GUI application supports different languages, but the movie related data are in English, as made available by IMDb. A Python package called IMDbPY can also be used to process the compressed plain text files into a number of different SQL databases, enabling easier access to the entire dataset for searching or data mining.[58]

For the purpose of this blog we will source the data from IMDb official website. The data is available here and here. One might have to spend some time in order to collect the data and required metric for the analysis. E.g. the result of sourcing data from first link above will have IMDb rating for movies but will not have user votes information.

Make sure to collect the URL for each of the movie which will be required for the exercise of embedding Web Page objects in Dashboard at a later stage. One can retrieve the URL of the movies as shown below. The method of collecting the data is left to the readers of this blog.

Letterboxd's Top 250 movies, based on the average weighted rating of all Letterboxd users. I removed all stand-up specials, stage plays, concert films, documentaries, shorts, 'collection listings' and other 'rarities', so only feature length narrative movies are listed here. Films should have a minimum of 5,000 ratings to be eligible to enter the list.

Fun fact:Highest ranked movies in IMDb's top 250 that are absent in the Letterboxd list: Forrest Gump (11), The Matrix (16), The Green Mile (27), Léon: The Professional (35) and Gladiator (37).

In our last Friday Challenge, we presented a data set of the Top 250 Movies from IMDB and asked you to create a dashboard from that data set. Pete put together an amazing dashboard and here is his tutorial. You can also download the dashboard at the bottom of the post.

I wanted to give a view of the ranking of the movies, which was almost a duplicate of the original data table, but since 250 items are too many for a dashboard view, I made a scrollable table that shows 10 movies at a time.

To answer these questions, I created a selectable list with a drop down menu to choose year to view and the list will show all of the movies that were released in the chosen year. I started with inserting a combo box from the developer tab onto the Dashboard worksheet. I formatted it to have the input be the Year column from the Distribution by Year table we recently created. I set it to display 10 values at a time as this seems to be a reasonable range of values to show, and linked it to a cell on the Calculations worksheet. (The selected value shown below [62] corresponds to selecting 1995 from the drop down list that the combo box provides.)

To display the selected year, an INDEX formula is used: =INDEX(K39:K118,AB2). This indexes the list of years from the Distribution by Year table, and pulls the value on the row defined by the selected value that the combo box selection returns. Next, a count of the number of movies in the selected year is needed. This is accomplished by a COUNTIF formula: =COUNTIF($E$5:$E$254,$AB$3). This could have just as easily been accomplished by using INDEX on the count column of the Distribution by Year table in the same manner that we pulled the selected year mentioned above.

Just a quick comment, the dashboard in the video is not the most up to date version, which is depicted in the write-up. There are a few minor differences in the dashboards. The first is the selectable year table that shows which movies were released in a given year that is in the final dashboard, and the second is the final dashboard does not have a selection for count vs. year as I did not find added value in it and it also made reading the data more difficult.
