One other comment that may be relevant - when Tellico does an update, it
runs a search and then compares each result from the search to the existing
movie. If that result doesn't match the existing movie closely enough, then
the new information won't be used to update it. So in the case where
there's a title but no other data, and maybe the punctuation or the word
order is different, Tellico will not use the TMDB result to update that
particular entry. Typically, the match needs to have at least two similar
fields (like title and year or studio, for example)
