I wanted to get to the page for “X-Men First Class” and so I searched for it and selected the film option, but it didn’t show up. (At least not on the first page)
I ended up searching for “The Last Station” which also didn’t come up, so I clicked on one of the options that stated “Lists that feature ‘The last station’”, clicking on the link to it’s page, then clicking on James McAvoy’s page then finally getting to the new X-men film’s page.
How can the search engine be so crap!?
Now I realize that if I’d gone to the second or third page I might have found the film, but you shouldn’t have to!
I just typed in the titles of the two films you were searching for, in both cases the film’s profile was the very first result I got. Not sure what happened when you were looking for them.
Oh, come come now, friend. There’s no need for such language.
The search engine is a dear sweet baby still learning how to walk.
Give it some time to grow & perhaps be a little more caring of its feelings, yes?
Thank you though for voicing this complaint. I’m sure someone in-charge may take note.
Have a nice day! :]
Apursansar is on the side of the facts.
When you type “X-Men First Class” into the mubi search-engine, it is in fact the first choice that appears.
This post is a fallacy at heart.
A heart which I do not have.
I’ve typed in those exact words twice now and the film isn’t on the page at all.
I do live in Australia though, could that possibly make a difference?
An intriguing potential fact!
Are there separate search-engines in other countries & do they work differently?
It really isn’t the greatest. Usually I have to search by actor or director, but when I’m searching a film of whom I don’t know any further information about – it can be slightly frustrating… :(
Although, on the HOME page – using the search quick engine there is wonderful.
typical mubi member response: “maybe you just don’t know how to search”
Maybe I just don’t know how to search? Yeah it’s really hard to put in the name of a film!
The problem is this piss-poor search engine doesn’t even show a film when it’s typed in letter for letter!
You don’t see this?
Sometimes the search engine just does strange things. Occasionally I have trouble finding things and will just Google mubi + the movie you’re looking for and that usually finds it.
LOL I was only commenting on the snobbish tone some users like to use. I’m sorry the sarcasm didn’t come across. )
