TMDB has been having trouble for the weekend, but the fact that you're
able to get info w/ an IMDB # means it's likely your titles are not
close enough to the actual film.  Not saying that they are, but if
your titles were something like...

$Title x264 xvid dvd l0l etc. etc.

Then that's not going to work.  The title field needs to be the actual
title of the film.
