Review not being processed

More than a day ago I submitted a review for "Aguirre, The Wrath Of God" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068182).  Soon after that I submitted a review for "All Quiet On The Western Front" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078753).  The "All Quiet..." review was published almost instantly, yet I am still waiting for the review of "Aguirre...", despite it being submitted earlier.  

Today I submitted a review for Despicable Me 3, and, once again, it went through instantly.  Yet Aguirre is still pending.  I have tried submitting Aguirre again, on a few occasions, and this has not helped.  Unfortunately I did not keep copies of the submission receipts, except the last one.  The number is 180326-080500-423504.

Is there is an issue with my Aguirre review that I don't know about?  If there is, shouldn't I receive a notification that my review was rejected and why?  If it is still pending, why did the later two reviews go through immediately? 

Or are there stricter standards for reviews of Werner Herzog movies?  :)

Regards

Grant

Hi Col.  Thanks for the prompt reply.  It appears that the review is still pending.  Thus, as per the question I asked in my original email, why did two of my reviews get processed immediately and one take over a day (and counting)?  I would think that they would be processed in order. 

Only thing I can think is that you have an automatic scan of the review and if that is okay it processes it immediately.  If it picks up some key words that might indicate spoilers the review gets processed manually (i.e. one of your staff reviews it).  However, there were no spoilers, or anything that could set off some sort of spoiler alert, in my review.  

Or, Option C, as I also mentioned: Werner Herzog movies get special treatment....  :)

They aren't necessarily processed in order. I had reviews on pending that I wrote three days ago while the one I posted 3 minutes ago is already there. It seems to me that especially reviews on new movies sometimes take a bit longer, but not exclusively these.
