Movie Lookup Sneak Preview

Following on from my previous post about a Movie Catalogue and APIs, I've finally got round to coding the movie lookup / auto-complete tool that will be used to easily add movies into my database.

Movie Lookup Sneak Preview

It uses the built-in autocomplete method in jQuery UI, and queries my PHP script which grabs the search results from the Rotten Tomatoes API, strips out all the unnecessary data, and outputs the JSON.

Speed is a bit of an issue, and I would have it query the API directly instead of having to use a Intermediary script, but the API requires a key that's unique to me and needs to remain hidden, so sadly there's no room for improvement there.
