I'm surprised you guys broke down and gave a choice. Obviously it's going to take some time to get this system as tight as the now dubbed "Classic" view. That's a hell of a nice thing to do.
There are a few suggestions I have, but I can't imagine you guys aren't already working on them as I type this, so it's probably redundant.
I know that there are ratings icons on the top left, and I know what they mean. If I was just coming to this site, I don't know if I would. With the wide layout you have a lot of space to put "Mature" or "Everyone", or "Only For Grandpa and the Dog". Also, with so much space in that bar, you have a change to display the awards in the top bar that people covet so much. To put them below the Author Information doesn't lessen the achievement, but might obscure it for people who don't know where to look.
Movie score is also a bit harder to find, but it's not a scavenger hunt or anything. And maybe that's what you guys want, so people will start watching without a preconceived notion on the overall "worth" of the flash that score is associated with. It's also been said that the voting icons themselves are a bit smaller in comparison now, but I think Lil'jim already addressed that was being worked on.
All in all, I see a lot of potential for this layout, and think it's going to make this site even more cutting edge than it already was.
