Get the Picture? (get-ImdbSearch.ps1 Powershell script)

6/14/2017: Two Posts in a day! And both're scripts to-boot!

I like movies. A lot. Last time we moved, I donated piles of dvd's! 

Wonderful thing, moving. Clears the head!  Gives you massive perspective.
Makes you want to donate 300-400 books, and hundreds of dvd's, JUST BECAUSE YOU NEVER WANT TO MOVE THEM AGAIN! :D Ever!. Really. :^S

Anyway, on to today's script: This one runs an interactive Imdb title search (using Google - smaht!) for near-miss title-matching, then returns a console menu of the Google hits, from which to pick. Pick a movie from the menu, and it pulls some fairly decent amounts of info on the chosen flick from Imdb.

Two outputs: Default 'Summary': 


And '-Full':



Here's the code


And the current revision can always be found at Github: Get-IMDBSearch.ps1
