- “Your Reviews” are now ordered by Date and reviews on each Title sub page are ordered by Helpfulness.We will continue to update functionality in the new year, starting by bringing back the ability to sort reviews from newest to oldest/oldest to newest. We appreciate your patience as we continue to improve the overall experience.
- We have removed the Index view.
- We updated the way that reviews with spoilers are displayed.
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/
Anyways, if IMDb does do this, please, at least, inform the member via email of the edits. The censorship doesn't even bother me so much as the word change makes my statement in the review unclear and grammatically incorrect. So, if IMDb does do this, please also write better.
just adding this here -- better place ? move it ...

Does anyone from the producers gives any feedback on all this reviews?
There are many points on the reviews, that I am also wondering,
that I will like to know.
On one hand, I realize IMDB staff do not have all day to sit and proofread everything that comes in, nor verify if the review is worth posting. On the other hand: where is the criterion for posting? Doesn't it include parameters? I can't seem to find that information anymore. If it exists, it doesn't seem to make any difference.
I also saw what I can only call "haters" reviews for "Crazy Rich Asians" -- the reviews were racist, vile and hateful. Am I suppose to report each one?
IMDB used to be a fun place to come to read user reviews (with Roger Ebert gone, there really are only a few "pro" critics that I read, since the "pro" ones that IMDB offers seem to mainly be people who give their blogs names and somehow end up getting their reviews listed under Critics' Reviews). But now, I am seeing so many awful, rambling, misspelled, grammatically incorrect messes that all the joy of reading reviews is gone. I'm better off just posting reviews on my own website.
Does anybody monitor the quality of reviews on IMDB? And if not, why not? Because it would take too much time?
"It's great movie for ever and I love it from beginning to end"
"This film unforgettable! This film i can watched indefinitely!"
"One of my favorite movies since i was a teenager, amazing performance & story."
I am sorry but these are not reviews, these are reactions, plain reactions, they give absolutely no specific insight about the film, no analysis, no criticism. Reviewing is a passion for many of us but I'm not sure I would have started this had I read these on IMDb back then in the 2000s.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about the length, Pauline Kael made many reviews that didn't take more than 100 words but she went straight to the point and expressed a sharp and well-expressed opinion.
Maybe we should get back to the old system? Because at this track, anyone can make it to the Top Reviewer if it all it takes is "one enthusiastic sentence".
