You should rename the namespace declaration for dbpedia from _9 to  
something else, perhaps dbp I think the namespace needs to start with  
a character, that is ^[A-Za-z].

I would also change the following triple you assert :


<http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/guid.9202a8c04000641f8000000007272929> <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/common.webpage.uri 
 > "http://bladerunnerthemovie.warnerbros.com/" .


<http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/guid.9202a8c04000641f8000000007272929> <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/common.webpage.uri 
 > <http://bladerunnerthemovie.warnerbros.com/> .

The trailing / on the domain is good (that caught me out recently) but  
I would change the warnerbros web resource be represented as a URI and  
not a literal value :)

You also emit what looks like http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#date

The following triple could be data-typed :

<http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/en.blade_runner> <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/film.film.initial_release_date 
 > "1982-06-25" .

to :

<http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/en.blade_runner> <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/film.film.initial_release_date 
 > "1982-06-25"^^<http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#date> .

I think (not certain thought) that the year literal value you emit in  
several places is a ISO 8601 date, i.e. "1983". I would be tempted to  
emit it as a xsd:date (as above), or even an integer in the worst case  

As above the following literal should be a URI :


And finally I dont think I would have chosen to use bnodes in this  
document. I would have ditched the intermediary bnode, and used the  
object uri as the predicate. I would change these :

_:genid9 <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/type.key.namespace> <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/authority.imdb.title 
 > .
_:genid9 <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/type.value.value> "tt0083658" .
<http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/en.blade_runner> <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/type.object.key 
 > _:genid9 .

to this :

  <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/en.blade_runner>  <http://rdftest.mqlx.com/ns/authority.imdb.title 
 > "tt0083658" .

Which seems consistent with the rest of the triples.

I hope this helps/makes sense,
