This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: User Reviews disappeared from reference view (old title/name page layout)

Just a couple days ago I noticed the main page for movies doesn't include a User Review at the bottom of the page. Is there a way to fix that and make it go back to the way it was?  I realize you can still read the User Review by clicking on that section, but sometimes I just wanna quickly see the basic idea on the main page from a user rather than leafing through countless user reviews in the User Review section.

We're finally seeing what all these "updates" are for: to appease the powers that be. Hollywood has been complaining about sites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB giving too much power to the customers. They want to go back to a time where people would blindly pay for films without any information about them, or the ability to access reviews written by real people at the click of a button. First it was the message boards... now this.

I expect IMDB will remove ratings from the main pages soon too.

Hi Jeff,

Please know that User Reviews are still shown on main title pages; for example:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3521126

Can you please provide us with a link to the title page where you noticed the User Review section was missing from the main title page?

Thank in advance.

Granted, maybe I'm still using an older version of IMDb, but here's a screen capture of it.  Typically the User Review would show up below the Additional Details section and about the Related Links.

And similarly, there would usually be the title of the User Review listed with the Plot Keywords and Awards link about the Cast list.  Now it isn't there.
