  1. Recommendations

    I think "recommendation" will be a killer feature of the site, even if it doesn't approach the philosophy behind letterboxd (being a social site).
    Moreover now that you are at the beta stage, meaning fewer users, less probability of "friends", the recommendation of a movie based on my most liked movies or the highest rating, it'll be a great way of discovering new movies.
    I know that technically it will very challenging or maybe you have even think about it.

    • Match users with similar taste

      Add a match button to every profile so you can check immediately if somebody has the same taste as you.

      You can use the like and/or rating of a movie to produce a list of similar movies/similar profile or a similar %.

      • Private accounts

        I'd like the option if keeping my account private, like how Twitter handles private accounts.

          We’re thinking more about this now that our API is nearing.

          In the meantime, note that you can block any member from following you or posting comments on your content (look for the Flag icon on the member’s page).

        • Suggest movies to friends

          I imagine some kind of inbox or notification system where you can receive suggests from your friends. The film menu you see on mouse over can get an extra option "Suggest to friend..."

          • Add a random button to the watchlist.

            The title says it all, yo. I've personally seen at least three people asking for a similar feature. Adding a button that would randomly choose a movie in your watchlist for you.

            What you could do if you were feeling all kinds of fancy is even adding the ability of letting the user input a tag, to help you choose a movie in its watchlist.

            • Add groups that users can join (and tag members when watching films together)

              Enable users to create groups they can join, such as "Filmspotting fans," "365 Movies in 365 Days" or groups by location, etc. sort of like Facebook groups.

              • Android App

                Since there is an App on Itunes, I think it would be a great idea to make one for Android. Not everyone has an Iphone, I simply prefer Androids. I love the interface which you displayed on the preview on the website, I hope this goes through soon!

                • Follow/Subscribe to a List, Actor, Director, Studio or Tag

                  Besides liking a list, I think it would be nice if you can follow a list. Some lists will change or grow over time and it would be nice if people get a notification in their activity of it when they choose to follow a list.

                  • Collaborate on a list

                    Allow a list being 'open' which then users can follow a list and add films to it. This will result in much more list activity and complete film lists.

                    Take for example http://letterboxd.com/pablos/list/special-powers/. I can easily add 10 more movies without any effort to make the list more complete.

                    Optional: to demotivate abuse, submitted films must be allowed by the list owner before being added.

                    • Fully Block A User

                      Please let me be able to fully remove users like Todd Gains, Cogerson and Naughty who just ruin the website for me. Their reviews are dreadful and I find I can't visit the homepage because their awful rubbish is plastered everywhere.

                      • XBMC Plugin

                        I'd love for letterboxd to have an xbmc plugin (www.xbmc.org) which would allow to import your movie collection as well as collect seen/unseen data automatically. The option to rate a movie aftter watching it could be added too! Take a look at www.trakt.tv they have such a plugin and i think it would be awesome if letterboxd had something similar! Thanks
                        PS I`m typing this from my couch, in font of my win7/xbmc htpc powered home theater ;)

                        • Create lists of Actors, Directors and Studios

                          I often find that I want to list things other than films. It would be great if I could create a list of, for example, the Best Directors. Or list my Favourite Japanese Actresses. Or make a list of popular Animation Studios.

                            • Add multiple or categorize watchlist

                              My current watchlist is 500 films deep. Trying to find something to watch strictly from flipping through the cover view is a bit tedious.

                              If we could categorize films within the watchlist (I might do my own by genre) it might offer some relief. Then, when the film is watched, it would still disappear from your watchlist instead of having to be manually removed from a list you've created.

                                • add an option to have tied films on ranked lists, with both having the same rank number.

                                  For example, you could have
                                  1. Citizen Kane
                                  2. The Godfather
                                  2. The Godfather Part II
                                  3. Blade Runner

                                  This shows that the two are considered to be equal on the list and doesn't mess up the numbering for the rest of the list.

                                    • Plex integration

                                      When you watch a movie in Plex it marks it as watched here and at the end, it gives you an option to review/rate it which shows up here and that you can toggle on or off.

                                      Just a thought, but not sure whether it's possible or not. Seems likely and it'd certainly urge me to permanently use the service.

                                      Stunning work so far! Keep it up.

                                      • New System for Handling Films Marked as Adult

                                        Recently, a lot of sexploitation and other classic exploitation and cult films have been removed from Letterboxd because someone on TMDB has been marking them as Adult. I think that the process of importing titles needs to be rethought, because it is drastically affecting my abilities to keep track of my lists and reviews, and it really hurts to see titles disappear after I have put effort into writing reviews and managing lists.

                                        Something really needs to be done about this, because this has continued to be an issue since I first started using the site, and so far there…

                                          Let’s do this: can someone in this thread compile a list of “important/historically significant” adult films that should be on LB. Then we can see about adding an exceptions list to our importer that uses this list.

                                        • Select/detect language of reviews

                                          Most reviews are and will be written in English. But once public accessible this site will (hopefully) grow, so will the number of reviews and diversity of languages used to write these reviews. On a movie detail I can see 3 popular reviews in 3 different languages for example.

                                          Maybe an options where you can select in what language your review is written and an option (checkboxes) to select which languages you understand... and wan't to see.
