That option should be available, but there are several reasons the 
sections should be kept separate.  First, by my agreement with the Daily 
Yomiuri to put my reviews on the web, I have to acknowledge them, and 
that is easier if all my reviews are together.  Second, I assume the 
formats will be different: I, for instance, always include cast and 
credits and hypertext links to other reviews (old reviews have links to 
the IMDB).  If Mark, for instance, does not use the same format, users 
may wonder, "Why do some Kinema Club reviews give credits and others do 
not?"  Keeping the sites separate will help explain these differences, as 
well as give each review author the liberty to design his or her site the 
way he or she wants to.

Ideally, we should set up a way for people to search through all the 
reviews.  Perhaps an in-site search engine would be best?
