  1. Improve keyword relevancy when searching for lists

    No matter what I search for, some "Edgar Wright" list is the first hit. That list can't possibly be the most appropriate hit for *every* single search term.

    This site has a huge bias for huge lists over tight and focused lists. If I search for "girly movies", a list with 1000 movies scattered across all genres is not what I had in mind.

  2. Replace the GoWatchIt feature with a less US-centric service

    With JustWatch (just an example) you are able to search streaming services the world over rather than just the US, which the majority of your streaming filters seem to be geared towards. Is this something that would be possibly to implement?

  3. Stats page for watchlist

    I think it would be cool to see breakdown of year / genre / directors on my watchlist.

  4. Delete tags in bulk

    It would be nice to be able to delete a tag from all films you've tagged. For example: I started out tagging every film with the actors that were in it. (I know, I'm stupid.)

    When I go to my tags pages now, it's a mess 'cause it's full of tags that I don't need. It would be easy to be able to have a function that would remove that tag from every movie I've logged with that tag. Now, I have to edit every entry and that's obviously very time consuming.

    PS this feature is not mentioned in the…

  5. Clean background option

    Explains itself. It’s really annoying trying to read on a dark background, and specially if you plan to reais for hours. I’m really interested on making an account on the website, as he got all these nice features, but it doesn’t have the simple option to change theme to a clean one (white background black text). Please, letterboxd! Hear us.

  6. Filter lists by other lists

    Sort of to create the inside of a venn diagram between two lists, so I can see the overlap of one list in another list. (Lists have to be personal or liked to show up as filter option)

  7. TV Miniseries segregation

    I love that you have mini-series listed on here, as well as short-films. But perhaps have someway of segregating the two in terms of categories? Or perhaps include a mini-series tag to the show, to make it easier to find and log. I, myself, watch plenty of mini-series and while I love logging it into my diary, I wish it were easier to browse for more mini-series in the database, or to look up miniseries I've already watched in my watched "films" tab.

  8. Improve GoWatchIt service

    One of the main reasons I paid to have a Pro account on Letterboxd was because I thought it'd be a great way to keep a master Watchlist where I can sort those movies by where I can watch them. But it appears your partnership with GoWatchIt.com is broken. It almost never accurately reflects the movies that are currently streaming on various services. Just now it doesn't show that First Reformed is on Prime Video (subscription). It doesn't show that Sorry to Bother You is on Hulu (subscription). It shows Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is on HBO even though…

  9. Option to like Cast, Crew and Studios

    the ability to like actor, director, etc. profiles on the site and have those likes appear on our profile likes page would be super awesome and handy. i think it's something to really consider!

  10. Create a search engine that can find common movies between multiple actors or crew

    I want to type in multiple actors and see what films they have been in together. Or see how many times a director collaborated with the same actor.

  11. Provide Better Sorting on Searches

    When using the search function, results seem to be all over the place.

    If I use a search term, and then select "Lists," it seems pretty random which lists come to the top. It would be great to sort by "Likes" or "Comments."

    If I select "Reviews," I would like to sort by "Likes" or Comments."

    "Actors" or "Directors" would be great to be able to sort alphabetically.

  12. Add a back arrow to the website,

    I use Letterboxd as a PWA on my PCs (https://imgur.com/eWlCAeJ), and there's no option to go to the previous page. It would be very useful to have something like for example the Spotify PWA (https://imgur.com/1DW3fJI)

  13. More info on personal film pages

    On my personal film/review pages, such as this:
    https://letterboxd.com/rotane/film/spider-man-homecoming/
    i would like to see more infos and links to other things, namely any of my lists that this movie appears in, plus reviews that i liked from other people (rather than my friends' ratings).

  14. Change/ configure backdrop

    So I just became a patron after one year of pro and was excited to get that fancy backdrop for my favorite film, Cold War, and although it doesn't look bad, there is a few other options on TMDB that I believe would look a lot better; especially one of them that I'll link below.
    I understand it is not very convenient to do this for any movie on request so I suggest adding an option for patrons to each select the backdrop they like most for their favorite film from a list, either on the website itself or, for…

  15. Allow users to delete/edit comments as they please. And not for a short time, that seeems arbitrary. No reason to gatekeep a simple feature.

  16. Movie Memories

    I believe Letterboxd should show you which movie or movies you watched today, x years ago.

    Either on the homepage or some other place, maybe even in the diary itself.

    I know this has been suggested before but is now buried under many other requests and I thought it would be nice to suggest it again.

  17. Yearly Stats Reflect Films Watched by Decade

    I love the stats feature available for Pro/Patron members. The "highest rated decades" on the all-time stat page is really neat and I thought maybe each year could have a feature that shows the number of films watched per decade. For instance, this year I feel like I've been watching a lot of older films from the 30s and 40s but there's no simple way to determine that.

    So basically having the "by release year" graph available on the individual years pages!

  18. diary memories

    im thinking like facebook memories or timehop it would be nice to have a function where you could see what you logged in your diary or wrote a review for a year ago, two years ago, etc. or even smaller time frames like a week, a month or six months ago. i really wanna know what i was watching last year etc but it’s not practical to scroll through my whole diary.

  19. Film in TMDb not showing up in Letterboxd

    I’ve been trying to add the following TV film to Letterboxd. It already appears in TMDb and all data seems to be the same as all of the other Sherlock TV films (which are on Letterboxd) but I can’t get it to import.

    https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/555827-sherlock-a-scandal-in-belgravia?language=en-US

    Please can you let me know what is wrong or missing?

  20. Hide popular/obscure films

    Add an option to hide films with more or less than 3000 ratings (as an example). This way you can find or filter out obscure films.
