Crosschecking movie watchlist from two people

trakt

Trakt.tv is a great service for those who like to keep track of everything they watch, both TV shows and movies. I am a bit of a statistics freak and I love to analyze any kind of data, and with this website it’s no different. So far I have watched 2,027 episodes from 35 different shows and 642 movies (that I have tracked so far).

Another thing that I really like about trakt is that I can install a XBMC plugin to add shows automatically to the list after I’ve watched them.

You know when you’re trying to decide which movie to watch with your girlfriend or friend, and you spend more time searching for what to watch than actually watching it? With this in mind, and using trakt’s API, I made a Python Script to do this work for me (maybe someday I can make a php version and put it online), and all you have to do is enter two usernames from trackt and it will list the movies.

This script actually does a bit more than that and can list your watchlist and the movies you’ve watched.
