Add runtime to the columns (or filters) for lists

When I display my list in column mode (if that is what it is called) it shows me the following columns for each entry: Title, Year, Type, #, Ratings, Date.

And it allows me to 'refine' or 'filter' the list via a bunch of different criteria (on the right side of the page).

These are great, but what about runtime? When I'm looking at a list of movies that I might want to watch tonight I need to know the runtime.

Note that, if I export the list, runtime is one of the columns exported!

Although you cannot directly sort a list of titles by run time, you can use Advance Title Search [http://www.imdb.com/search/title] to sort your list by run time.

For example:
Longest Titles In Your "All Films that have Appeared on the IMDb Top 250"
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?lists=sbXIgqyYZNI&sort=runtime,desc

To get to the Advance Title Search:
1. Click on the arrow next to the yellow spyglass.
2. Scroll down to "Advanced Search" and click.
3. Click "Advanced Title Search".
4. Select the list from the List Include scroll down menu.
5. Select "Run time descending" from the sort by scroll down menu.
6. Click the yellow "Search" button.

Note: You can apply additional filters from the "Advance Title Search" page. Also, if you would like to sort someone else's list, you can substitute the hash code for that person's list in place of the hash code for the example given above (sbXIgqyYZNI).
