    I'm attempting to tag all my movies, TV shows, etc with correct info and synopses. I've been looking on Amazon and IMDB but the synopses on both these sites are not the same as what you get on the back of the DVD covers. They are infact user submitted and usually waffle on about crap while giving away the ending.

    Is there a place where I can get pretty much what is on the back of the DVD covers so I can just copy and paste the stuff into iTunes?

    I just Google the film name and find something in that list.

    A lot of TV Shows have their own websites that have episode guides (South Park Studios for example).

    MetaX uses Amazon and IMDB if I'm not mistaken and I find the synopses from both sources not to my liking.

    I'm after the little blurb on the back of the boxes not the entire plot and how the story ends like you get from IMDB or Amazon.

    Also after trying to use Metax it doesnt work on my PMG5. It refuses to open! Is it a universal binary? It doesnt mention whether its UB or just Intel.

    Rotten Tomatoes is a great review site and features a synopsis for each reviewed flick.

    Agreed.

    You get the good, the bad, and the ugly, all there.

    Just wade your way through it, and draw your own conclusion.

    Then join and add your own review. That's how it works best.
