Your ratings can be viewed in descending chronological order, and the date you rated it is displayed. On the non-mobile version of the site, just hover over your user name (in the upper right corner of most IMDb pages), and wait for the dropdown menu.

You can also sort by rating date using an Advanced Title Search, but the date is not displayed there.

I'm not aware of a way to request ONLY the last 3 months of ratings.

Hi Lou,

What @bderoes wrote is what can be done entirely within IMDb. However, you can export your ratings to a CSV (Comma Separated Variable) file which you can import into Excel, Open Office or Google docs. Then you can sort and filter your ratings within one of these spreadsheet applications.

1. Make certain that you are logged into your IMDb account.
2. From the drop down menu select Your Ratings. This will bring you to Your Ratings Page.

3. On Your Ratings Page, click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner.


This will bring up this menu:


4. Click on Export.. The file ratings.csv will be exported. Save and import this file into your preferred spreadsheet application. The spreadsheet has these columns:

Const
Your Rating
Date Rated
Title
URL
Title Type
IMDb Rating
Runtime (mins)
Year
Genres
Num Votes
Release Date
Directors

5. Sort by Date Rated and filter by other variables as desired. You should see something like the following:

Thanks bderoes & Dan, the above of course, depends upon you remembering to vote on IMDb for everything you have watched in the last three months.

Hi, Lou. I would like for you to clarify what you mean by "view".

By view I mean I was wondering if I could see a list of the pages I have visited including for film editors, directors, producers, etc., not just movies. Thanks.

Sometimes IMDb shows those pages under "Recently Viewed". I was wondering if I could get a listing, a history, of all my "Recently Viewed" pages. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Yeah, use your browser history. In the search type IMDB.com.

The feature of being able to acquire a pallet of more than the most recent thirteen items of the "Recently Viewed" history was discontinued a while back, and never was it necessarily possible to acquire a pallet of all items viewed going back months, unless there would have been few enough items to fit within a particularly old listing. I don't remember how many items could fit in it, maybe 35 at maximum.

The problem with the browser history is that it records every page visit and likely (unless some kind of "elite" edition browser is being used) does not provide a tool that allows the history entry to be narrowed down in such a way as to conform to a regular expression like as follows:
^https?:\/\/www\.imdb\.com\/(title\/tt\d+|name\/nm\d+)\/?$
Even so, the posters and headshots will not show up in the search results. Another problem with the browser history, is that it is not possible for the browser user to take it with him/her across whichever other devices to which he/she may switch.
