Reviews interface improvement idea

The new format for showing Reviews is maturing and I'm getting used to it. 

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.

The review interface is awful and not fit for purpose.

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.

This has now been implemented, thanks. 

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/
