The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at



I've just added about 500 ratings from my IMDB account. As recommendations seems to only get calculated given favourite movies, I marked (manually) every movide with rate >= 8 (about 50-60). I would appreciate any other suggestion to improve my recommendations since, at the moment, every movie in the recommendations list is completly irrelevant.

The recommendation system is still very bad.

I have lots of international independent films in my favorites. The first 20 recommendations for me are mainly Marvel films or other blockbuster movies.

Are you planning to incorporate user ratings for the recommendations? I don't know if this is feasible, there must be some reason that Netflix changed from a ratings to a favorites system.

The recommendation system is being completely replaced later this year. It has not been touched since the original implementation, ie. it has not changed since 2017.
