 dvddb, is there such a thing?

Well, this is the thing...

I've developed a 'DVD Database' macintosh file/program using FileMaker Pro
5 (I've seen plenty programs for the PC, but few for the Mac). So far it
works wonders, it contains not only disc-specific information about a
title such as format, region, layers, bonus material, cover, etc., but
movie-specific information as well (director, cast, crew, trivia, goofs,
alternate versions, etc).

Currently I have to skip from places like IMDB and Amazon/DVD Specs page
to gather all the information about a certain title and then enter it
manually into the database.

What I was wondering is if there is such a place or site that gathers all
this information (a la CDDB) and be able to call it using the ISBN o
something unique like that, so as to avoid all that skipping around and
save some time.

Alternatively, is it possible to write a script that calls and gathers all
this info directly from the sites?

Thanks!

Does Sherlock-2 do this? Perhaps in combination with applescript?

Good luck
