That could be it. I *highly* recommend running your movies through Fekker's program MIP. In addition to ensuring that you get proper info for everything in your library, you get more options for posters/fanart, AND he's got functionality built in for the extra media images and (coming soon) TV network support so you get the nifty little icons.
It may take a bit of time to get everything straightened out in the begginning, but trust me, once you've set up your library with MIP once, you'll be incredibly glad you did. It takes away a lot of the headaches caused by movies being incorrectly scraped, and it also cuts the time it takes to scan everything dramatically.
I've updated the version on FTP to reflect the laundry-list of stuff I've been working at. Changes/fixes are as follows:
Fixed: Timing not quite right with startup anim
Fixed: Issues with fanart/thumbnails flickering or showing incorrectly in music library.
Added: Global fanart image to Music library.
Fixed: Video OSD open/close animation.
Fixed: Sluggish navigation when visualization overlay is on.
Added: Stop button to OSD common controls.
Fixed: Disable Tile View in Movie library.
Fixed: "Video Setting" button in home screen doesn't work.
Fixed: Supplemental Weather script doesn't work.
Added: Flag to control whether to display rating, or use rating field for Network Logo.
Added: Seek Bar on seeking in music OSD.
Added: Now Playing info in Music OSD.
Fixed: Ghost Playlist Position with Twoline Weather/date enabled
Fixed: Press "UP" to view ghost playlist on homescreen.
Fixed: Press "left" from "Movies" button on home takes you to the settings button.
Fixed: Seek Letter shouldn't display in playlists
Added: Rough Album/artist/song info window in music lib.
So, feel free to download the updates and see how it works for you.

where would i get fekker's program mip, and does it work on OSX?
- deano72 - 2009-03-29 18:53
Sorry. Movie info plus is not available for osx yet. Worn and horizons and other skins show movie info. If I use mip via so on my mac do I only have to run it once? Obviously again once I add more films.

It works under OSX using WINE, the windows environment emulator. I'm not familiar with the usage of Wine, so I would recommend checking in the discussion thread for MIP on info on where to get it and how to install it...
- deano72 - 2009-03-29 19:00
Yep I will try wine.....cheers.

Hey, sorry, I missed the bit in your other post about the info being missing still. If it displays in other skins...it should work in Serenity.
Here's a screenshot, what exactly is missing?
I also updated the media info section so that if it's a stacked file or a .rar, it will automatically show the director info stuff and not try to use extra media.
That should be up on the FTP in about ten minutes.

No, still in the testing phase. I hope to have it ready for public by my birthday...4/7/09.

The day after my son's birthday. He won't get much use out of the skin tho since he's only going to be 2.
Hitting up FTP now to play with the new stuff..
