The API is limited in the number of requests per API Key per 24 hours. I think off the top of my head 500 requests per day, but to look up a movie requires more than on request, because you need the list of movies, then the movie itself, etc.
I don't think I will be developing this any longer, Mortstar's scraper is along the same lines as what I was looking to evolve to. I had some work completed but RT changed the site layout again and broke it, and there is not a full set of reliable information for every movie; for example not all movies have writing credits or classification information, so the scraper "hooks" are a moving target. Better to supplement existing information with RT ratings, the same as Mortstar has done.
