Web service

Does anybody know a good movie database web service .
I want to build a programm that given a movie or artist or any other movie parameter, will be able to show information about this movie or artist and etc...
 
Now I could do that using html files and DOM but I prefer XLM .
 
I looked at UDDI and it is hard to find any good server there. The service has to be fairly updated , so the information will be usefull and stay usefull for some time.
Does anybody know such server or efficient way to search for one?
Or where except UDDI services are published?
I also have heard that the search can be performed dinamicly , but I just couldn`t find out how  Sad
 
P.S. I do prefer the service to be free , but if it isn`t I still might use it.
 
Thanks .

Are you looking to create your own dynamic movie database, or are you looking for an established database that can be interrogated and return query results?
 
IF you're after the most comprehensive database that already exists on the internet, then it has to be http://imdb.com (Internet Movie DataBase). They allow you to download raw data textfiles for you to create your own content driven database (with obvious copyright restrictions). You can find out more here:
http://imdb.com/interfaces
 
If you're after a free/open source database then I can highly recommend MySQL: http://dev.mysql.com/

I am looking for for an established database , that is able to return xml content .( xlm , from my previuos post  Embarassed)
Imdb is exactly the kind of information I need , but it comes as html or plaintext , that means I need to parse it or use the Html Dom and both are not very nice options.

If the plaintext has a consistent format, a Perl script could probably convert it to XML. I took a look at the IMDB web site and couldn't figure anything out from a quick look. If you know where to get some sample data I could take a look and let you know what I think.

AllMovie as well as IMDb both seems good movie database. I didn't find any problem while using these two.
