After some hours of pattern matching, html analysis and such, I’ve come up with a fuzzy IMDB scraper implemented using scRUBYt!, that can be used to extract any kind of information from the huge IMDB database in a programmatical way.

Here it is, straight from the scRUBYt! wiki.

I hope you enjoy it :).
