I see that the user reviews have been dropped from the main Show page, that's the first issue but it's not that important. I used to like seeing different reviews shown there each day. My problem is with the way the new reviews section appears. It's only sortable by "Helpfulness", I can no longer use the filters I used to use. Like Oldest/Newest, or hated/loved. This same complaint trickles down into my own Reviews area, I have over 600 so far, sometimes I will need to log in and edit one. But even in my own area, it's only sorted by newest, and the new format shows summaries only, I liked it better before when I had just titles, or when I could choose to show Titles and Descriptions. But the main thing is that I cannot search, there is no more alphabetical sorting, or any other sorting but newest first. Or maybe there is a setting hidden somewhere where I can adjust these paramerters? That would be great. I can do it somewhat in the App, or Mobile site, but not on the Desktop site.

One thing I do like is that my reviews seem to immediately post, instead of waiting about half a day. But I never was bothered by having to wait. But sometimes I like to get the link to my new review so I can share it, this is no longer possible. And that's the only issue I'm really concerned with, is there no way we can get a link to share our reviews? That and being able to search through our reviews. I hope these small problems will be addressed. But I've been here for 14 years, it's just been convenient to keep my reviews here, and I like reading through the wide variety of opinions.

One of the things I forever used to ask for with the iMDB App, was to somehow add the ability to make reviews from it. Maybe these changes will eventually make that possible. Oh Yes, the Mobile Site, from within the iMDB App. At the bottom of any given page, it says "More on imdb.com" and I can no longer use that link, because it says "Safari can't open the page because too many redirects occured". But, it's not Mobile Safari, it's the iMDB App's internal browser. I'll see if I can email the developers from Testflight.

Thank you.

Edit: I did not see THIS. I'll keep checking. But keep in mind my idea for allowing reviews from the App.
