Include more options for filtering and sorting ratings

Presently, the filters for displaying an individual's ratings are limited to showing them all or to showing all with a particular rating. It would also be helpful to filter by whether it is a TV show or movie. For large lists, filtering by keyword would be helpful too. Filtering options could also be made to work together.

The sorting options include only Most Recent and Top Rated. It would also be helpful to include Alphabetical. With long lists of ratings, the rater could use Alphabetical sorting to see what he has already rated and be able to tell what he still hasn't rated. When I'm rating large numbers of movies and TV shows shortly after signing up, the Most Recent sorting option is fairly meaningless. What would be more meaningful is a Chronological sorting order that sorts in the order shows and movies were aired or released.

Hi Fergus Duniho,

You can use Advanced Title Search to filter your ratings.

For instance:

Feature Film, Restrict to Titles I've Seen (Sorted by Your Rating Descending)
https://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=feature&my_ratings=restrict&sort=my_ratings,des...

TV Series, Restrict to Titles I've Seen (Sorted by Your Rating Descending)
https://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=tv_series&my_ratings=restrict&sort=my_ratings,d...

You may reach the Advanced Title Search page from most IMDb pages.
1. Select Advanced Search from the drop down menu next to the search box. This will bring you to the Advanced Search page.
2. On the Advanced Search page select Advanced Title Search. This will bring you to the Advanced Title Search page.

To create this search:
Feature Film, Restrict to Titles I've Seen (Sorted by Your Rating Descending)

1. Go to the Advanced Search page.
2. Select Feature Film under Title Type.
3. Select Restrict to Titles I've Seen under Your Ratings.
4. Your rating (High to Low) under Display Options.
5. Click the yellow Search button.

No. Ratings are NOT a list, so you can only view the preset IMDb page for another user's ratings.

You CAN perform Advanced Title Search on another user's List; see the description heading this list:

Dan Dassow,

Did you miss my second comment which already mentioned that page? I am not merely looking for a way to sort and filter my ratings for my own personal use. I would like more ways to sort and filter the public display of my ratings, so that I can more effectively share what I've seen with other people.
