However, there is one thing which appears to have gotten lost in the redesign, and I want to draw yr attention to it. Furthermore, I can recommend an easy "fix".
The old design allowed the User to "cut" (for subsequent "paste"-ing) a URL to a specific review for a specific movie.
This was nice. Back then, I could embed the aforementioned URL elsewhere on social media if folks wanted to see my standard take on a flick.
It wouldn't be hard to reinstate this. The common way this is done elsewhere is via a "permalink" clickable/right-click-->"save link" link.
It shouldn't be terribly difficult to add this to the current reviews interface.
Thanks for reading this far! Hope you find the idea appealing and worth implementing.

That would be "Copy" not "Cut"...

Since 200 people follow that thread, I've posted this Idea's link in that thread, and encouraged voting here.
Permalink would be helpful on Users Reviews
which are not always easy to find on the Title Reviews

I don't understand what point you are trying to make by posting links to the user "TheManWithTheGoldeneye" and his sole review.
I definitely understand the point of asking for individual pages of review rather than the Load More button, but that would seem to be its own Idea, worthy of its own thread, not directly what this thread is about.
Please restore the permalinks to our individual reviews posted over the years. All the permalinks to our individual reviews from previous years are dead now.
I have now set up a new blog and will need to copy all of my reviews from IMDb to the new blog if you don't fix this. If I'm unable to link to my individual reviews posted to IMDb, it no longer makes sense for me to post any new reviews here at all.
Thank you for your help.
Organizations go thru cycles, and IMDb is entering their "monetization"/"cost recovery" phase. Continuing to offer this kind of service does them (as they see it) little good and a small but significant cost.
The "little good" it does is that it does afford them a smidgen more exposure on other social media, as any embedded URL with an "imdb.com" in it naturally would.
The cost is that they get more hits from the hoi polloi; free-riders who enjoy the surface-level benefits of the IMDb, but don't pony up for the professional service. Why should they pay for that additional bit of wear/tear on their servers to dish up some free-loaders' User Comments on movies and TV shows? Why should that be on *their* nickel?
The IMDb folks did that bit of cost/benefit calculus and found the retaining of that functionality wanting.
In short: Tho I miss this functionality, I'm not holding my breath. I thought I'd chime in mostly because I just wanted them to know that at least ONE person noticed it went missing.
Months have passed now, but I'm still in shock over what IMDb has done to us. Amazon is only a little better, succumbing to the illness of political correctness by now failing to show the ratio of helpful vs. unhelpful votes below reviews – only helpful votes are displayed now, which is useless. I'm afraid IMDb will follow suit.
I have just set up a new website, kritik.avenarius.sk, and I will be transferring all my IMDb reviews from previous years to it. IMDb just gives me no other option. As others have remarked, if there is no way for you to link to a review you have just created and posted to IMDb, it's as if the review didn't exist. So why bother at all?
advanced search function
It would be a very handsome feature if you could specifically search for User Reviews
to a specific movie and filter by Users who have also written Reviews
for a defined set of other movies...

The alphabetical sorting has a mind of its own. My last film on alphabetical index in reverse is xXx2 than anything with Z.
The worst thing is. IMDBs IT experts just need to pick on someone who has done thousands of reviews and test the various functions. They will soon find it does not work.

To view an individual review, simply click the review title. To copy the URL of a review, click on the "Copy link" label under the review. For example from https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5580390/reviews?sort=reviewVolume&dir=desc&ratingFilter=0 (see red highlighting)
which will lead you to or will copy -> https://www.imdb.com/review/rw4063416/
