This is an excellent addon for anyone wishing to give a lot more oomph to their movie forum/s with very little effort from members to post an amazing thread starter introduction to their favourite movies.  All the information is automatically seeded into the head of the topic, poster, release date, synopsis, cast, director etc, all with clickable links back tracking to TMDb for even more information.

There was a slight problem with the addon when I first added it to my arsenal of features, but @batarjal sorted it very quickly and updated the addon for future purchasers; this is what I call 'excellent' support and for which I am thankful.  This addon will pay for itself in droves, well worth the outlay and very, very easy to install and setup. If you run a forum with a movie section, or you run a movie site this is one to buy.  Top notch!

This is an great addon for any community owner looking to offer more to their forum with very little effort from members to post, the install was easy and everything worked as described, getting the API key took only a few minutes.

Good job @batarjal
