Ever since I started writing reviews and as far back as I can remember, it used to look like this (sorry for the quality):

You could order them chronologically, alphabetically, or by usefulness, it was practical and just fine.

Now the page looks totally different and it seems that you can only order them by date, even if I want to have access to my reviews, I have to keep on loading and loading and loading. Reviews aren't even mentioned on the activity section of the profile's page, only as "quick links".

Is it temporary or is this the new look of the review's page? Please say it ain't so!!!

I have exactly the same experience as you. I have 3,154 reviews in the past 5 years, so the new format makes it impossible to access old reviews in any of the several ways that we've found useful over the last 5 years. IMDb needs to go back to the old way immediately! Today, I needed to look up my review of "John Wick", using the alphabetic sort. Impossible.

Yes, this is the look of the new page..for now. We recognize that this isn't ideal, particularly those with many reviews, and we plan to iteratively update it as this is an important piece of the IMDb experience.

Please change it back!  The new look is awful.

The new look is really awful . Besides, how to find the "hated it" section ? The user cannot sort anymore.

If this will not be changed back I am done with IMDB.

I tested it and it only scrolls back about 200 reviews. So in effect I have lost access to 1,500 of my reviews with this change. I can't believe you guys have done this?

I really cannot understand why IMDB has worsened everything. It is a great disrespect for its users. I have 137 reviews. I am glad that I do not have 3,154 or 1,500 as the users above. Shame on you, IMDB!

I don't like this either as I can't find the reviews I want but instead having to scroll down to find an in-depth review.IMBD, please either change it back or find a better way for people to see reviews better, this won't work.
