The New IMDb Layout: Problems and Issues

Friday November 6th 2009

Above: A sample from Martin Scorsese’s IMDb entry, as seen in the new layout.

Srs, what is the point?

  • The posters are so tiny that you might as well just have a blob of colour next to each title.
  • They’re also missing a hell of a lot of posters, which leaves most lists with big white gaps between the blobs.
  • The titles are now so far apart that someone like Martin, who has a lot of movies to his name, ends up w ith a page that takes about 4 hours to scroll through.
  • There is absolutely no need to have the year of release both in brackets after the title and aligned to the right.

Madness. Sort it out.
