Hello, 1. - The short answer is **yes**. If copyright is a concern, then I would recommend using the TMDb api as data taken from IMDB should not be used commercially. 2. - This data is taken straight from IMDB and then cached to speed up future requests. This API is really only meant for personal use if you want imdb-specific data (such as `technical specs` which only imdb has). The TMBD api is really good, and will perform better than mine in production as their servers are much faster.
As of now, there is no way to search titles by genre. I am currently exploring possibilities of expanding this API which may include additional search options such as genre.
Hello there! Unfortunately, IMDB does not store this information so there is no easy way to search it. You could try looking for a list of 4k films on IMDB, and then looping though each one (would require a bit of work though).
