  1. 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…

    • Watchlist - Who and Where

      When I add something to my Watchlist, there are two critical pieces of information I'd like to be able to include:

      1) Who told me about the movie or where did I hear about it.
      2) Where I plan to watch it.

      Examples:

      a) the Inside Streaming newsletter recommended I watch a film on Netflix. I put it in my Watchlist but over time I'll forget why I did or where I can watch it.
      b) a friend at work recommends I watch a movie he/she saw on TCM last night. When I put it in my watch list I'd…

          • Fix your alphabetical sorting

            I know I've personally suggested this same feature in a different thread a while back ago, I can see there's others that have in the past too. I love your site and using your new app on Apple TV makes finding a good movie to watch that much easier. But you guys truly are using an alphabetical system that is incorrect and very frustrating. Films should not be bunched together just because they begin with an article. In my watchlist, "The Accountant" should come right after "Accepted," but because it has "the" in the title, it comes hundreds of titles…

            • Movie Posters

              Hi, I know this has been mentioned before but I'd really like to make a point about the movie posters.

              I read about the website's preference for simplified, cleaner versions, keeping only the name of the film and dropping all the remaining information that composes a movie poster. I was wondering why people keep uploading such versions at TMDB and, searching through this board, I found out that the reason is that these versions work better at smaller sizes.

              It may be a good point but it still bothers me so much because those simplified versions feel like a scar…

                We generally prefer original, theatrical posters (or simplifications thereof) over DVD covers, but we are a small team and we don’t review every film entry regularly to check this is the case—sometimes such a file isn’t available. (If it is, we may have chosen a Criterion cover because it was more immediately recognizable for the film.)

                We feel that cleaner versions of posters work better at the small sizes we often exhibit them at. We respect your right to disagree, but we don’t plan to change this approach.

                It’s possible we’ll one day allow Pro members to choose their preferred poster, but that’s not high on our priority list at present.

                    • Sort Movies by Relevance

                      My suggestion is to create a new filter on letterboxd. Sorting by Relevance. It would sort movies by picking a mix between high score + popularity

                      The current filter 'Average Rating/ Average first', displays a lot of movies with low people voting, like sometimes we see movies with 3 votes 5 stars being display at the top.

                      Im not saying these movies are bad, but i dont think they have what it takes to be considered the 'best movies' from that year in that category.

                      For example, if you pick Horror genre, year 2016, the second movie has only 11,…

                      • I prefer popular in letterboxd

                        I prefer the section "popular in letterboxd" than "popular with friends". Maybe because I don't have many friends, but it always similar to news from friends and I want to know what are the most popular movies right now in the whole community.

                        • Name of Film Beneath Film Poster

                          When browsing through films it would be nice to see the name of the film in decent sized text underneath the film poster as opposed to simply seeing it in small text when hovering over it (sometimes the title disappears quickly and you don't have a chance to see it and you then must hover over it again for the title to reappear). It would be much more accessible and easier on the eyes when scrolling through filmographies if the film titles were put underneath the corresponding posters.

                              It'd really help if there was a thin border around the film posters, marking them as watched/liked and as "on my watchlist"... I've just started using letterboxd and am already losing track of what I have already added and what I haven't.

                              • Higher standard for "Top Rated Films"

                                I've noticed that finding good films to watch through sorting by highest rating has become difficult lately. A good example would be trying to sort by highest rating and narrowing the search to horror from the 2010s.

                                You will find that a bunch of the results are youtube videos, and the others only have 100 or so people who have even logged the film as watched.

                                Perhaps I'm wrong, but shouldn't there be a higher minimum for calling something "Top Rated"? Maybe like <1000 viewed or something like that? I use this site primarily for the ability to search for…

                                • Allow users to mark a review as "read"

                                  I think it would be very useful to have the ability to mark a review as "read". I really enjoy reading others' reviews, but it can be a little frustrating scrolling through reviews and not knowing/remembering which ones I have already read or not being able to find unread ones. I know a lot of people use the "like" feature for this purpose, but I am very selective with the likes I give and having another method of indication would be very useful.

                                  This feature could then be used as an added sort level. For instance, one could go to…

                                  • Lists should require at least 3 entries

                                    2 movies is not a meaningful list, and it's abused to make the same tired "movies that <absurdly specific criteria>" joke.

                                    • Watchlist: See Star Rating on Rollover

                                      Would be helpful to see the star rating of a movie when you mouse over a film in your Watchlist. Currently, there's no way to see a movie's rating in the Watchlist without actually clicking through to the film's page.

                                      • stop 'add a film' deselecting when the list exceeds page length

                                        It's hard to explain but in edit, when adding films, 'add a film' deselects when the list exceeds the page length recquiring the scroll bar to shrink. Whenever the list pulls the scroll bar, 'add a film' deselects, requiring it to be reselected every time 3 films are added.
