I believe this was the module I got the farthest with.  I was using it
without a local database, instead querying IMDB's website.  However, it
appeared to be 2.x only (no 3.x yet), and it was tracebacking a lot.

The rest of the IMDB-related packages on Pypi appeared to have tiny version
numbers, or to have not been updated in quite a while.
