Media List PHP App

I recently developed a PHP application designed to query IMDB, get movie information and save a list of your DVD and Blu-ray collection to a database. This was just a personal project to test out some new technologies. It uses the OMDB API, MySQL and PDO for database connection and is hosted on Heroku. Also has the ability for users to create their own accounts. Written from scratch.
