in thread Class for getting film information from IMDB.

So why did you decide to reinvent IMDB::Movie? The only extra feature I see is plot, which would've made an excellent addition to IMDB::Movie.

    I've decided to reinvent IMDB::Movie because there are not information which I needed: duration, summary, country, language etc. So, I've tried to inherit that module and extend it but it wasn't possible to do for me.

    And I've tried to implement needed functionality and make that module easy extending to inherit and override its methods or add new one.

    This is my first relise and I hope that step by step I'll improve that module.

      Did you try contacting the author (jeffa) about adding those (he's a friendly guy)? I think it would be a good idea for you to ask him to take over (or share) maintenance of IMDB::Movie, that way you can get rid of the duplication.

        Maybe you are right. But I've already upload my module to the CPAN. So, maybe will be better to merge our modules and make one which will include all the best things from both.

        I'll try to talk with jeffa.

        Updated:

        This is my first module which can be useful for other people and I'd like to post it in CPAN. Maybe it was stupid thing!
