It says the table's name should be set to movies... could someone tell me what's wrong?

# insert your code here
from sqlalchemy import create_engine
from sqlalchemy.ext.declarative import declarative_base

engine = create_engine('sqlite:///movies.db', echo=False)

Hi Javi. It's a simple typo. Should be __ tablename __ instead of __ table_name __

The simple ones are sometimes the hardest to find. Keep at it!
