  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 %.

      • 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!

        • 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..."

            • 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.

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

                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.

                  Block user needs to block everything. I don't want to see said person's reviews or anything they have to add to the site. Certain people think this website is their personal blog.

                  • Collaborate on a list or watchlist

                    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.

                    • Create lists of Cast, Crew 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.

                      • 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 ;)

                        • Watchlist: allow sorting/ranking/categorizing

                          In the 'films' section of your profile you can order your films by popularity, could it be possible to integrate this function into the 'watchlist'. Tis could be handy for days you have no inspiration on what to watch.?

                                • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Add Favorite Actors/Directors on Profile page

                                        The ability to list one's favorite films is great, especially when sharing preferences with friends; the opportunity to list favorite actors would be just as convenient. Adding a "favorite actors" category to a users profile page would be a fairly simple change that could really add a lot of personality to each account.

                                        • Bulk tag editing and other enhancements

                                          After obsessively adding/sorting/erasing/rewriting tags, I had a few suggestions I thought might improve their general function. I'm aware that some of these ideas might be impossibly complicated to implement, so this is more of a dream wish list:

                                          - Tag Editing: Rather than only create or delete tags, enable an editing function. It'd make things easier for correcting spelling errors or reclassifying tags that have been used hundreds of times.

                                          - Tag Folders: Allow users to subdivide tags into separate groups if they see fit. For example, I might discretely classify certain tags as 'genre', 'mood', 'actors', or 'miscellaneous', retaining…
