Pulling Info From IMDB Part One: Goofy Movie Titles

Hey There,

We're going off the range here today (while we leave another script on the oven to simmer for 24 hours ;) and moving along to finding the best way to strip "random-yet-connected" data from any online source.

The script should be fully tested by tomorrow, but for today we'll just be showing you what we've gotten it to produce so far (since it had to be manually massaged a bit).

This "project" will accomplish two simultaneous goals; neither of which will probably end up being for the betterment of mankind ;)

1. Scour the Internet Movie DataBase Main Search Hub-Page, using wget for Linux or Unix, and find all the movie titles that match our seed-pool of words or phrases.

2. Mix the real movie titles with fake movie titles culled from our seed-pool. For instance "Maximum Proposal" is a movie title created by combining two different members of our seed-pool. It's made up of two words which, when taken separately, appear in lots and lots of movie titles. Together, they're just completely ridiculous ;)

The result is, hopefully, as amusing for everyone else as it was (and is) for us :)

Presenting, in an ongoing attempt at maintaining alphabetical order, a collection of some of the worst and most uninspired creations of the military-industrial-entertainment complex.

Most are real, some I just made up.

If you can find all the fakes, treat yourself to a brand new couch!
