Hi guys,

please don't take this as a beauty contest of any kind. I don't want to 
spoil JoH's or Ingo's work, really. The point is that the first is 
better accessibility-wise and semantically more correct while the later 
takes less space in the current layout.

a) Ingo's font-size is smaller, the table wider than JoH's <li> (still 
your solution is more compact)
b) while I like the info-boxes at the top in Ingo's solution, it does 
not scale well horizontally I guess, while Joey's list does profit from 
a wider main column.

The drawback with JoH's current solution is that it has a big fixed 
height, which will get worse with adding more fields (and rating info 
*will* need to fit there.)

How about splitting the green info block into two or three and float 
them horizontally? Like

and let the description and upload comment *still* float around that 
whole block?

Man, I didn't know it would be so tough...
