The Movie Database Support

Greetings and thanks for a great site and API. Occasionally I get issues when retrieving Collection info, where there are no movies listed that belong in the collection.

Example here is Cannonball Run.******


  "id": 101688,
  "name": "Cannonball Run Collection",
  "overview": "A series of films which revolve around an eccentric group of competitors in wild and illegal road races.",
  "poster_path": "/8Bq9YD1UIw1hdkccegKVaUipBH9.jpg",
  "backdrop_path": "/ogcQ0P7d1qY8S0CUWOeUrSa1BSB.jpg",
  "parts": []

Yet surfing your site, definitely shows The Cannonball Run, Cannonball Run II and Speed Trap as belonging to this collection.

Sorry, I can't recall the other collections I had issue with, this is the only one that I investigated thoroughly.

One other questions, is there any thoughts of allowing download of all Collections in one hit? I only ask as this would allow quicker performance if the file was local and only needed updating occasionally....(yeah, trying to be lazy, but trying to reduce number of API calls)

Hi Rob,

This is definitely a bug. I've created a new ticket for this here and will look at it next week. I'm out of the office until November 16.

Hey Travis.

Just wanted to bring this issue to your attention again. Tested and still returning an empty set for Cannonball Run. Sorry, can't recall the other collection this affected also. (removed)

Other collections are returning correctly (removed)

Hi Rob,

This is on deck to be fixed this going week.

Hi Travis

Hate to bring up an old thread, but the collection for Cannon Ball Run is still not returning any movies that are against this collection

Hi Rob,

This should be fixed now. You'll have to wait for the cached response to expire which is in 3.5 hours from me writing this post.

Sweet. Confirmed as working.

You can close this thread now.

If I find any other collections with this issue, I will open a new thread. Or is the fix for Cannon Ball Run something that would check and fix any other collections?


It was a data issue so it could happen again, yes. I'm not sure how the data got in that state but it's not normal and I have never seen it before.
