It is the same with me too. I have four reviews still pending, two from yesterday, one from the day before and the other the day before that. Like you a vast majority of the rest of my reviews (being a prolific reviewer) since the change of layout, have been approved very quickly. Straight away even for most. I have queried about this already to the help desk. Their quite helpful answer, which was reasonably quick, said that the submissions had not yet had time to be processed after needing to be checked by staff first (which from the sounds of it has not yet been done). They also said that the amount of time it takes can vary, judging from the data contributions page link they provided it is clear that the amount of submissions they get every day is a lot and we're talking about user reviews alone.
I totally see where you're coming from. With the "pending reviews" section gone, which is one the things that needs to come back, there is no way of telling whether the review has been pending or been rejected. Sometimes I get paranoid as to whether I submitted it at all. Just to say too that it happened with me twice before since the new review layout was enforced. One over the Christmas break which I found out was due to under-staffing and that things are slower over the festive season, which was understandable. And the other was that the review had been approved but somehow was not showing on my account page and it was implied there was some kind of bug problem. It is very frustrating and unnerving for me when this problem happens, it very rarely happened for me with the old review layout (plus there was actually a way of seeing whether the review was still pending or been rejected) whereas it's happened three times in this month alone. The very few times it happened with the old layout in my early years of using this site tended to be with longer reviews with spoilers, for a few years now my reviews are still long but I am careful not to use spoilers.
Hope this helps and good luck.
I tried to post a short review for "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"
a few days ago, and it is still "pending"
normally reviews are posted quickly for me.

Around two days ago, I reviewed six movies (Downsizing, Call Me By Your Name, The Shape Of Water, The Disaster Artist, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and I,Tonya) and an episode of a sitcom The Office (the American version) and I still can't see them on my reviews list. At first, the mail; that I do get after I submit a review, arrived late than usual and then all the reviews that I have submitted (after Saturday, perhaps) has not yet been displayed. So I am worried that is there an issue in my profile or my reviews or what?
