Project Description

I have a script that scrapes [url removed, login to view] and exports the results to a .csv you can see the script in action here:

[url removed, login to view] (note that the source-code available on the webpage is old, I will provide newer code upon hire)

There are a few issues with the script I need fixed namely:

Occasionally it will grab the wrong Critic % and average rating; I can provide specific examples.
I would like it to scrape the DVD release date and production company when available.
It doesn't always get the "Movie Info" (Synopsis field).
When using the search by title function it errors out with 'could not find object on line 114'.

I just need the script working properly and its 95% there. This shouldn't take long for someone familiar with web-scraping.
