Should not stop every 10 movies; if you see lines like:
  SCANNING movies: Title of a Movie (movieID: nr)

it's printed once every 10.000 titles.  So it's not that slow. :-)

The script basically scans a lot of titles (and other information)
keeping them in memory until they're periodically written to
the database.
For the movies, the batch is written every 100.000 titles (if the
write to the db fails, the data set is splitted in two halves, and
a warning is logged).

Has the script completed, on your system?  How long did it take?
