  1. add the ability to add movies to the database

    I have noticed several movies that appear on IMDB and The Movie Database but they do not appear on here when searching for them. Is there anyway we can add movies from The Movie Database to Letterboxd? Clearly if they are on The Movie Database and IMDB they are legit movies so no reason for Letterboxd not to have them. i can ist the films that i know are currently missing if you wish.

  2. display some technical specs on film pages

    Technical specs are displayed on IMBD but not on TMDB. Can this be done, either by pushing for implementation on TMDB or something else? I don't really care about sorting films by their specs (except runtime which already exists) but I'd like LB to show a few things like original aspect ratio, color, sound mix. Maybe even film format/digital format but that's complicated because lots of films use both or multiple formats.

  3. Replace Gowatchit with Justwatch

    It's been 5 months and Gowatchit still lists Filmstruck/Filmstruck+Criterion as one of the service providers. The Criterion channel has not been added. It does not include Hoopla, Kanopy, TubiTV, the Roku channel or IMDB Freedive (perhaps because they are free or free with a library card?). It also lists films as available although what is available is just something with a similar title. Justwatch is much more accurate, useful and is updated constantly.

  4. Home button in app

    Please add a button to instantly get back to the main page of the app- it can be laborious hitting back many times through all the viewed pages and I usually have to close and open the application.

  7. Spell-Check Glitch

    In the review section, when android does an automatic spellcheck and I try to select, edit, or delete that word, the entire review disappears (I suspect the entire log gets refreshed). Its happened several times and caused some frustration.

  9. Release Date Preference

    I'd love to be able to choose the release location in my profile so release dates would match. For instance instead of seeing when a movie first hit the festivals overseas or even here in the US, I could choose to see them listed by the year of their theatrical release in the US. Others could choose their country.

  11. Feature-Length/Short Categories on Profiles

    It might be a good idea to add "shorts" and "feature-length films" categories to the "genres" bar on users' "watched films" pages, so that they can view these types of films separately if they choose to do so. A miscellaneous category might also be a good addition, as there are many non-films (i.e. TV episodes, music videos) on Letterboxd.

    This would probably make it easier for users to keep track of the actual number of films they've watched, as opposed to everything they've watched regardless of the type of medium.

  12. Create a "suggested by [user]" tag on a list

    Let´s say I want to create "The Ultimate Horror List" and have people send me suggestions. It would then be cool if I could tag that user on the movie he or she suggested as "suggested by [user]".

    Example; Movie nr 4: Pet Sematary - suggested by Andrew123

  13. Add Kanopy to the list of services

    Kanopy is prominent enough a service to warrant a spot on Letterboxd’s list. (Also, lamentably, you will soon need to remove FilmStruck.)

  14. Sort my films by most watched

    I'd love to be able to sort by most watched in my films list. I know as a Pro user you can see this, but it only shows the top 12 entries, and I'd love to see more (and be able to make a list out of it!).

  15. Please add the 2019 Oscar Nominated Shorts: Annimated And Documentary.

    We are able to log the live action shirts but the docs and animated have disappeared. I would love to log them as one since AMC and my local theatre screened them this way.

  16. rename "Recent Activity" since it is actually showing the Diary.

    I'm sorry but from a usability standpoint the labels on profiles just really throw me off. The carousel titled "Recent Activity" doesn't show your actual Activity, it only shows your Diary. So the link underneath it ("More activity") that links to your actual Activity doesn't make sense because it's linking to something completely different from what's shown right above it. Please rename the "Recent Activity" carousel to reflect the fact that it's actually the Diary, then switch the placement of the "More activity" and "Diary" links. It's a point of minor frustration to constantly have to remember the difference between…

  18. Multiple Reviews of the same movie as a "Thread"

    I would really appreciate it if you guys add something like a "thread" sort-of thing for reviews. Suppose, I've watched and reviewed a movie multiple times. By introducing a "thread-like" structure, it would really look neat as well as show all reviews (of the same movie) on one page.

  19. Better Headers

    I guess this isn't really an urgent/top priority matter but I think a lot of users (including myself) would really appreciate it if the headers that were chosen for each film were required to be actual screen caps from the film instead of promotional images or larger versions of the poster. I'm not entirely sure how your team decides which header gets chosen to be on each film page but even just some clarification on the criteria would be nice since sometimes you choose really really really good headers (see the tree of life, the lobster and how to train…
