Take a look at the code that produces movie titles.


Right now, it simply truncates anything within any form of braces.  
While I don't have the final say on parsing formats, something that 
handled the specific regular expression "\((0-9){4}\)$" to parse out 
four digit years to allow later filtering of the results would likely be 
acceptable.  Note that due to how that function operates, with a 
position response of "0" telling it to stop looping back through, the 
interface would have to be altered to support new values.
