I'd be interested in hearing other people's experience with this engine.  I tried searching these keywords "big fat wedding" and it found four hits for "My big fat Greek wedding",  some of which were gossip rather than reviews.

I also searched "hours" and got any news item with "hours" mentioned, and since the news items tell you how many hours ago they were posted, I got a lot of hits that had nothing to do with movies at all.

I searched "Winged migration" and got only five hits, which surprised me for such a fabulous current movie.

In extreme perversity, I searched "cup" intending to read about the Tibetan soccer-fan movie "The cup", but I only got sports hits and none to do with movies.

"Sorting by relevance" did not help in any of these trials.
