How do I find out which movie I have rated but not reviewed (or review has not been approved)?

Hi,

 

the question may sound too mundane or simple. Especially if one only has a few reviews, but mine are in the thousands now and there seems to be a discrepancy between what I've rated and what reviews are on. Going through my list manually would take me quite a long time. So if there was a possibility to get information on what titles are rated and not reviewed or the other way around, that would be really awesome.

 

Some may find this "problem" ridiculous (I have joked about similar things as first world problems), I'd still very much appreciate if I get some help in that matter, without too much other noise.

 

Thank you so much

Hi, Kospac. Looks as though you did rate Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell (five on a scale of one to ten) and Spenser Confidential (seven on a scale of one to ten) but either did not submit reviews for them or those reviews were deleted. Can you confirm this? Your feedback shall be most appreciated.

Wow! Either you're a magician or you know your way around imdb ... I'd like to believe the former! ;)

Thank you so much and whatever you did to find that out is even more appreciated (I shall try to keep a record of what I review - and I did review both those movies, but I guess they either weren't accepted or got deleted)

Cheers friend

You're welcome, Kospac. I worked all day to upgrade my home brew mechanisms sufficiently to handle such a large amount of data. My web client even crashed once or twice in the process. Even though it was hard work, I think that it has benefited my technical proficiency.

Hi jeorj_euler,

Happy New Year :)

I thought about sending you a direct message, but seems like they don't have that option here.

I just exported my ratings to Letterboxd (friends have been pestering me about this) and realized there is a discrepancy again ... I checked all the recent entries, but seems like something older might have been deleted and the reviews/rating balance once again is off

If you could throw on that machine of yours again it would be much appreciated. If it's too much trouble I'd understand of course, but I thought I'd ask

Btw, if you are on Twitter, my handle/nick there is kospac too

Cheers, have a good one

Hello again, Kospac. I was able to uncover that you did rate Excess Flesh (three on a scale of one to ten) and A Christmas Horror Story (seven on a scale of one to ten) but either did not submit reviews for them or those reviews were deleted. Alas, I don't yet know why the IMDb website interface indicates that you have more movie reviews live than movie ratings live, rather than the other way around.

Hi @jeorj_euler 
Thank you again so much.

I did review every time I rated. And I always check the next day now if the reviews have been approved ... they had but somehow it looks like these two have been pulled/deleted.

I don't remember which movie, but for some reason I was able to do a second review for one movie, which I only realized later, but forgot to delete one of the reviews ... and then I forgot the name of the movie ;)

Cheers

Interesting. I ought to look into identifying duplicates, at some point.

Hello jeorj, care to share how exactly you managed to find the movies kospac was looking for? By which technique? Unless it's a secret. Love, Horst

I don't think there's a way to query that. Unless you're willing to do some work.

Here's what I suggest (this is on the desktop version of IMDb):

  1. Create a custom list where you're going to record each title that you've reviewed.
  2. Go through your list of reviews (Activity Page > Quick Links: Reviews), and add each title to the list
  3. I'd even go so far as to record the permalink of the review in the comment field of the title.

BTW, if you're not using the pre-assigned Checkins list for anything, that would make a great place to store these, or even if you are, it would be a great way to build the list if you're going to add the permalink for each title. I say that because on a title page, you can click the Share link, and one of the options is Checkins, and you can enter the comment directly on that screen. So you'd only need 2 tabs open (the list of Reviews, and each title). If you don't want Checkins as the final location, you can move them to a custom list when you're done.

 

Once you've built this custom list, you can use Advanced Title Search to find the titles you've Rated, but that are not on your custom list of reviews.

Hi,

 

thanks for your reply.

I got lucky and someone found the missing reviews. I will try to come back to the method you suggested when I have time to do so

 

Cheers

Note: in addition to storing the permalink in the list comments, you could actually paste a copy of the review itself there too.
