Does netflix even have a current api?

If they do the first thing you want to do is read the documentation and work on some very simple hello world type of app to just get things going. Then build on a little at a time to learn.

Can you point to the actual api? I don' think they have one.

Eduardo, I think you have a couple  main issues.  First is how to consume a REST API.  The next is how to create your movie roulette app.

For the first part, take a look at http://phphttpclient.com.  Play with the API's from https://developer.authorize.net/api/ or https://developer.yahoo.com/php/howto-reqRestPhp.html because it will be very likely there will be good community support here for those.

For the other part, how to create your roulette app.  Before using that mishape, do some quick research and make sure everything is on the up and up. If they are using actual data from netflix for instance and netflix does not have a way to access their data, chances are that anything that is  using their database may not be legal. That part is up to you to check on.  If all you want is a movie database to create your roulette app, look to imdb. http://www.imdb.com/interfaces/  That documentation shows you can just down the the data and use it for non-commercial use. This means you can import to your own database and not have to worry about REST calls.
