Frequently enough me and my friend (@zeromeaning) find ourselves checking the rating of a movie in IMDB (yeah, we like rotten tomatoes too but the masses opinion also counts). It takes more than a few clicks which is tedious and should be instant already.
We had in mine a straight forward syntax:"imdb the matrix".

In order to not go head2head with IMDB's restrictions on API usage we'll use a dedicated site (, created by Brian Fritz) which already makes the data we need accessible in JSON.
We aim to develop the Spice ourselves, so we mainly look for opinions and improvements suggestions from the community.

Cheers!

It would be awesome to also include more information about the movie, e.g. plot summary, cast, director, etc. I often check those out too when searching for movie ratings/info :)

Could you add a Tomatometer rating please?

Actually there's a separate IA for that called "movies". you can trigger it with "rotten", as in: "rotten the matrix".
Its a well polished IA and we'll try to make "imdb" as pretty :)
Thanks!
