Hello, I would be happy to help
emby misidentifies the movie X-men: First Class
At first he identifies it as a documentary film: X-Men: First Class 35mm Special (2011), ID number in tmdb - 691677

Even after I change the movie identification in both tmdb and imdb
He still doesn't recognize the film correctly!

Have you just changed the values in the metadata, or have you actually gone through the identify procedure using the correct id? 

My practice in this kind of situation is simply to add [tmdbid=49538] to the folder name; the change forces Emby to re-identify it, and the value overrides the previous error (the value I've given is the one you need in this case) - it also ensures that the identification remains correct if a full rescan is required for any reason.

excellent I will try it now.
With this method that changes the name of the folder,
Does it just force emby to take that info?

Can I do this with all movies? Right...

Tried changing the folder name as you suggested didn't help.
Where exactly do I add it? At the end at the beginning?

At the end (and with the brackets).  I don't know why it wouldn't work - I do this regularly with tricky items (though only two of my hundreds of mainstream movies need it), and it never fails for me.  My main use of it is for operas, which I wish to name in the filing system differently from how the metadata providers name them.

What is your folder structure?  I use the recommended format of a folder under the library folder for each movie separately, and no further nesting (such as grouping folder for a series - these get joined as collections in Emby, but not in the file system).

Add to folder [tmdbid=49538] - "At the end (and with the brackets)"

True, I noticed that too.
In the search, a documentary film appears first

Maybe @Happy2Play can report that to them.

I also reported.

From what I've seen there are more reports about it.
Look at the answer they gave

Try responding with this:

The issue is actually more basic and has nothing to do with documentary/movie/series classification.

If you search for "X-Men: First Class", there is an exact title match in the search results, but this is the second result in the list. For example:

https://www.themoviedb.org/search?query=X-Men%3A+First+Class

Instead, "X-Men: First Class 35mm Special" gets chosen as the best match. Applications can workaround this, but such workarounds can sometimes have negative effects. Ideally their search engine would be smart enough to order the results based on how closely they match the search criteria.

Then they are wrong .. lol

As Luke explained above - if you query 'X-Men: First Class' - you don't get back that as the 1st result.  It should an EXACT match - why is it not ?

I'm not sure how TMDB think this is not their problem - it is.

If you try 'X-Men: F' - you get X-Men: Days of Future Past as the first entry !  ?? Please ask them to explain the logic here and maybe Emby can accommodate.

The Mods over there don't see it as a problem as TMDB does not have an exact search function.  But technically the discussion in that item is not the correct area as there is not issue with this item itself.

lol - this is sorta fundamental to a metadata database no ?

"let me search for accurate metadata and get a load of irrelevant junk back, but the answer you want is likely in there somewhere - you sort it out.."

🤣

Even if they don't care about what comes out of the API, you'd think they'd want their search page to produce the best results as possible.
