need genre filters on the 'Most Popular Feature Films Released In YYYY' lists.this will make it easier to find movies we are interested in.currently sorting is available according to moviemeter,box office income etc.

You can do this through advanced search:
http://www.imdb.com/search/title

Or hacking the URL, so the 2003 list:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?sort...

Slap "genres=horror" on the end and you are away:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?sort...

The problem with providing such links is that they can be a bit of a dead end, with no way to manipulate the filters further or return to the advanced search, which is why I made this suggestion:

actually i dont want to search for a movie.now say i want to go through movies released in the year 2012 and see which movies is should watch.i will check these at http://www.imdb.com/year/2012/. now i am only interested in crime,mystery,drama or action movies with ratings 6+.Then there is no way to narrow the list to only these genres.we have to go through all movies and there are like 8000-10000 title atleast released each year.they do provide some filter if you see on top but they arent effective.the filters provided with lists are much better,you can select more than on genre.

As Emperor pointed out above, you can do this with an Advanced title search:
http://www.imdb.com/search/title

The search you specified is:
Highest Rated Mystery-Action-Crime-Drama Feature Films Released In 2012 With User Rating Between 6.0 And 10
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?coun...

Alternately:
Highest Rated Drama Feature Films Released In 2012 With User Rating Between 6.0 And 10 and At Least 1,000 Votes
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?coun...

Yep, all you are seeing on that page is really a shortcut into a search results page (they just use a bit of trickery to disguise the more complex search URL query string, which lies underneath that), as you can see when you click on the "refine by" which then breaks you out of the clean URLs into the more typical search set-up. All my points still stand and if we had the filtering options in the sidebar (as we have on lists), then you could do all this (and more) easily.

Emperor yeah you are right....a sidebar filter will be much more useful.They already have that feature for lists,should implement for this as well.Thank you for the reply.

If you haven't done this already, a +1 on the suggestion might help - the more the better as it can give staff an idea of what people really want.
