Hi Joshua, It's not so simple, since the data you need is not in a single place. Maybe you can try a combined approach: use the dataset released on https://datasets.imdbws.com/ and use https://imdbpy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/usage/s3.html to collect a list of movies released since the year 2000. With that, you can use IMDbPY to access the web site information and gather the other data. See the documentation to know how to download the various pieces of information. Please beware that some parsers may be broken, so you better test it on a single movie before to see if you can really collect anything you need. If something is broken or you have doubts, feel free to ask.
