Relating rated movies to artists

Sometimes I'm looking in the actors/directors profiles and I ever wonder how many movies I've seen from them. It would be nice if there would be a box in the right side giving you the information for example:
You've seen 4 of 10 movies from Angelina Jolie
(rated movies listed)

Thanks

Although this is not exactly what you suggest, you can do this with an Advance Title Search (http://www.imdb.com/search/title).

Most Popular Feature Films You Have Seen With Angelina Jolie

Most Popular Feature Films You Haven't Seen With Angelina Jolie

Sure, but if we try to do things better, IMDB gets the interface even more soft and appellative for its users :)

There might be a better way of doing it (and now I think about it, I wonder if this has come up before) but you can use advanced search:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title

Which gives you:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?role...

It might be nice to offer this as a link from the profile.

It's almost the same the user Dan Dassow has said :)
And i was thinking, in there was really a listbox showing the movies watched, there is always that conflict for example:
Tarantino is the Director of several movies, but he always participate in them. So there coulde appear int the list:
Tarantino movies you have watched:
As a Director: (3)
Kill Bill
Inglorious Bastards
Django Unchained

As an actor: (2)
Inglorious Bastards
Django Unchained

Thanks again, just trying to get the idea even better

Yeah that is currently the problem with the role search (and Tarantino is good example), as it can't differentiate someone's actual roles - it should really be:

?name=nm0000233&role=director

or:

?name=nm0000233&role=actor

That is worth a suggestion, as it has come up here before.
