The Movie Database Support

Hi, it's great that there's all this API available but clearly there are some things most people won't ever care about seeing in here. In the interest of not downloading and storing content which will essentially have no use or value to 99% of the population on a movie rating app, do any of you have good methods for filtering out the, let's call it "junk"? Is there a way to avoid things that are still in production? Is there a good way to filter out extremely obscure movies? Is there a good way to filter out "behind the scenes" or "the making of" content (which I consider kind of superfluous and more like the special features of a movie as opposed to an actual movie)? Is there any kind of benchmark(s) that you've found to be a strong indication for a movie's worth of inclusion? Very curious and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Hi @JeffWish,

Unfortunately, there isn't any way to restrict which fields get returned in a response. Our responses are static. One day, it might be nice to build a GraphQL API but given all the things I have on my plate, this just not something I am even planning for right now.
