Incomplete search results

Post by kritikos »

Autocomplete works, but if you go to the full results page, "Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995)" is the only title of the franchise.

Now the first movie appears but not the sequels.


This also gives no results: https://www.criticker.com/?search=ozu&type=people . It should show https://www.criticker.com/people/Yasujiro_Ozu/

https://www.criticker.com/?search=The+Y ... type=films shows only the American remake and omits the original Japanese movie (https://www.criticker.com/film/The-Yell ... Happiness/).

Thanks for pointing this out! We'll see what we can do to make these results more complete.

I've also noticed some inconsistencies regarding "and" (and other conjunctions/articles)

For example, searching for "water power" only brings up the 1977 film "Water Power", but none of the films entitled "Water and Power" or "Water & Power" (nor any other films with water or power in the title). And yet searching for "artists models" brings up "Artists and Models", "Artists & Models", and "Artists and Models Abroad".

EDIT: Realized it's probably likelier that the "water power" issue was the result of returning an "exact match" to the exclusion of all partial matches?

Searching for "the serpent" doesn't bring up The Serpent and the Rainbow, among others. Returns only five films, and the top two only have "serpent" in one of their alternate titles
