Navigator Guide Movie Release Years (Corrections and Remaining Bugs.)

Guys,

 

Just a heads up on the Movie Year Release corrections and remaining bugs on the Navigator Guide Cover Art Screens:

 

Corrected: Some Movie Release Years HAVE been corrected on the Cover Art Screens. i.e Midnight Cowboy, Animal House Now show their correct year of release date on the Navigator Guide cover art screens

 

Bugs: Burnt Offerings- Cover art page shows the movie released in 2015.  This is way off.  Should be 1976.

 

Airplane!- Cover Art Page shows that film's cover art page with a release of 1979, should be 1980.

 

Bugs (Movies not in the database as of 9-17-2018), but had incorrect years shown on the cover art  pages last time they were in the system:

 

Fiddler on the Roof- Shows a release year of 1970 on Cover Art Page, should be 1971.

 

Christine- Shws a release year of 1984 on the cover art page, should be 1983.

 

Bad Boys (The Sean Penn movie, not the newer film,)  shows a release year of 1982 on  the initial search results page, and on the cover art page.  Should be 1983.

 

Will try to periodically keep this list updated for reference.

I am also pretty sure that I have seen the movie Midnight Express, released in 1978, show a Navigator Cover art parge incorrectly of 1979.

Thanks.  We will pass the information along to Gracenote.

There's really a lot of errors within the ODN 8.1 Navigataor System with years being off of movies.  I could understand a couple of errors from time to time.  But sometimes it looks like a blind person entered the data in Gracenote's database.  It's that bad.

 

Here's another one:  Heaven Help Us released in 1985 has a Cover Art year of 2008.  I'm like WHAT?

PS.  I ACCIDENTALLY marked James' response as a solution.  I don't think there is a solution to this.  This is ongoing.  Subs, we can almost make a game out of this.  See how many movie year errors you find in search results on your cable box guide,  You can use IMDB.com for movie referencing.  Great site!
