I did a search for "The Warriors" using the text box at the upper left hand side of the screen, and it came up with all the wrong movies. Having had experience with how unreliable the searches are, I spent a few minutes finding the name of the director. When I searched for his name I got the right movie. I don't think it should have to take such an effort to find the movie you're looking for.

Were you looking for the 1979 Walter Hill film? If so, it came up just fine in the first search I did. You have to remember to click the link at the bottom of the results that says "view all results." The search only returns the first five results, which I believe is alphabetical.

What DH said. And also, frustratingly, the word "The," if it is the first word in a film's title, often screws up searches, so you should always omit "The" to start off a search query.
