Tagging Movies And People in Reviews.

I was reviewing a title, i felt the need of putting in a comparison referring a certain director. Also, in most of the reviews people have referred to a movie or a celebrity which I felt the need to check out. I guess there should be a mechanism to allow us to tag or hyperlink movies or people in reviews. It will be easier to just click within the review it self then to type it separately in the search bar of copy pasting it.

I like it.

If they used the "qv" formatting then I could see there being problems, but the forum now implements markup that generates a link using [link=XXXXX] (where XXXXX can be a name, title or company ID) and this would work nicely.

It would not only help people work out which film/person is being referred to but increase the interconnectedness of IMDB, helping people find new titles and search rankings and the like.

You can't once someone (in this case me) has replied.

I wouldn't worry about it - it gets the point over and I didn't notice (and I'm a stickler for accuracy!! ;) ).
