New search gives no/poor/bad matches in title searches if name is not exactly matching IMDB entry, which has joined or seperated words.

1) The "new" search stinks! I tried a TITLE search for "VENUS ON THE HALF SHELL", and it found nothing... the actual title was VENUS ON THE HALFSHELL in IMDB. I actually had to go to eBay and search for that title, find an actor, search IMDB for that actor, then find the movie in that actress's list.
STUPID search!!!
2) The "new" TITLE search for "FAR AWAY, SO CLOSE" said it found one match which was quite meaningless and unintelligible. I again went to eBay, found the title there, used the name of an actress "Nastassja Kinski", and found the movie there in IMDB listed as "FARAWAY, SO CLOSE!" which is actually not the correct title spelling. Refer to eBay.com item number #290920783442 which includes a photo of the actual title.
Again, STUPID search!!!

Please fix this problem! It should not require such a perfect match for every search, especially when partial words are included as search terms.
(AMAZON's search does not have this issue.)
