It so hard to edit list order in new lists editing now, in functionality new interface of list editing is like switching from Windows 10 to DOS. I really need possibility to drag items inside lists... Like look, here is list of my 500 all-time favorite movies: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls000036249/ , if I want to add some new one here, now I can't compare it during the process, I need to open few pages at same time for checking it and saving and re-editing list several times, but even worse: I want to keep certain movies in the beginning and end of each 100 within 500, so now it requires 100 times more time to do it, it just take nearly an hour to add 3 new movies there, it is very disappointing, now I guess I will be not doing it anymore :(

I should say I have problems with new interface for the lists as well. For large lists it has become really problematic to keep the track and order intact.

I agree that ordering lists is very difficult now. Hopefully IMDb will address that soon.

I'm glad to have seen your list. You have a very international mix, and the Refine feature does not provide a way to select certain countries or languages. You might want to provide links and/or instructions for how a user can search your list. Here are instructions I wrote:
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027342264/
Feel free to copy, adapt or refer to them.

You might want to provide at least a couple of links to get them started, like:
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?countries=jp&lists=ls000036249&sort=release_date,asc
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?languages=fr&lists=ls000036249&sort=release_date,asc

Or perhaps an array of links in your list description, like this:

Countries: England | France | Japan | Russia | US 
Languages: English | French | Japanese | Russian 
each with a link. On IMDb description/comment fields, the format for links is described here:
https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/how-do-i-create-a-link-in-one-of-my-descriptions/...#

It would be a 1-time effort on your part, and would provide a nice service for your viewers, of whom you already have a LOT.
