You should still be able to sort by ratings. This link for example: You just have to replace the movies subdomain with www and append the fcld=ture to whatever page you're on. Or, you can do what I did and set up auto-redirects for all of the pages using the new interface.

If you really want, you can replace with to use the old interface. Note the www subdomain instead of movies and the ?fcld=true. I set up auto-redirects in Firefox so if I'm on the watch Instantly or Genre pages it will send me back to the old layout. From my end, you can't even tell that I'm being redirected or that the layout has been changed. Hopefully, they don't drop this and leave me stuck with the new UI.

Everything else on file when it comes to your account is in the hands of the hackers.
