Windows 7: iMDB/Rotten Tomatoes gadget

17 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7
iMDB/Rotten Tomatoes gadget

These sites being my two go-to sites when looking up movies, it would be great if there were one gadget which would pull up the movie scores of both sites, when entering the movie into the gadget's text field. Anything on top of that like links to the movie's page on both sites, posters, etc. would be icing on the cake.

Anyone know of such a gadget?:)

Edit - I found an iMDB gadget.
Download IMDB Search Gadget 1.2 Free - This Vista gadget will let you search the IMDB website from your Vista Sidebar or desktop. - Softpedia

It's ugly but it will let you search movies, and brinks up a little miniature fly-out iMDB browser page. I also found an RT gadget with a search: Windows Live Gallery

But it just takes you to the search results in your browser. Ideally I'd like a single gadget that brought up the scores for both sites in a fly-out or something.

I also found a Firefox addon that provides close to the functionality I'm looking for:

You highlight the movie name, right click, select CineMeter Ratings and it brings up the scores for the movie from iMDB, RT, and another one, can't remember, in a little pop up menu.

IMDB Trailers Won't Play - Is it the newly installed Chrome browser?
Ever since I installed the Google Chrome browser, I can no longer play any of the IMDB trailers (??). Is this a common problem . . . or, is there something I need to configure in Chrome to restore this . . . or, is this something else entirely (and NOT the Chrome browser)? A real enigma. (????)
