  1. Add an option to log that you watched a movie with another user

    Since letterboxd is all about sharing film with friends, there should be an option to log who you watched a certain movie with. For example, yesterday I saw a movie with a friend who is also a user, we both logged it and reviewed it. It would be really interesting if these reviews were linked somehow. There could even be a category in your yearly user charts where you can see which user you watched the most films with.

  3. show reviews on favorite movies

    show the review button and link the user's review of their favorite movies (the four favorites on a user's profile) so that people who look at a user's profile can see what the person said about their favorite movies

  4. When you block someone, you should NEVER have to see their account. Ever.

    When I block someone, I want them GONE. Out of my feed, out of my followers' reviews, everything. I don't want to have to see their profile pop up under any circumstance. I have incredible anxiety and seeing a user that I've blocked for numerous reasons still show up in my feed is incredibly anxiety-inducing. I've debated leaving the site because of how much of a problem this is, and how seeing their profile makes me feel very bad thoughts that I don't want to feel. (not suicidal ones, just angry ones)

    Seeing the "three dots" thing in place of…

  5. Help Finding a Movie

    There are a bunch of obscure movie titles that I would love to watch, but do not have access to them. They are not streaming or available in any physical form (e.g., DVD, VHS). I think it would be nice to have a feature in which a user can ask for help from other users to track down a certain title.

    Sometimes I see that there are reviews or ratings from other users on titles that make me think, "How in the heck did they watch that? I've been searching for that title for years!"

  6. allow users to "favourite" directors/actors/etc that they want to keep track of

    When a user favourites someone it gets saved in a list of their of their Favourites. That way users can follow up on directors/actors they like and check out their filmography and see if there are other movies in the filmography that they would like to see. Right now users likely click on directors/actors after watching a movie they enjoyed, and they go through the filmography, and their only option is to add movies to their watchlist. But if users are allowed to favourite directors/actors, they can come back a year or 2 later and see what else they have…

  7. When will we get the ability to make lists available to followers?

    Seems like this would be a common sense feature.

  8. 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?

  9. Organization of Watchlist

    i think the watchlists can be less cluttered and more organized if we could categorize our watchlist. perhaps by genre or simply make our own categories. i know we already have lists but i feel keeping all watchlist categories in once place and lists in another would be a nice way to organize films

  10. Filter by minimum rating

    Let's say I'm browsing the list of films from 2018, I can see there's plenty of movies that have a very low rating because, of course, popular doesnt mean good.

    In such a situation, it would be very useful to say "I'd like to filter out movies that have less than a 3 or 3.5 rating"

    Does that make sense? I'm guessing it wouldnt be too complicated to implement either.

  11. My New Partner Movie Poster needs changing

    This French gem: 'https://letterboxd.com/film/my-new-partner-1984/'; has a DVD cover as its poster but there's a version here on TMDb (https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/original/lus3g0ujj0cdIcjNHVNb5b9bDQ9.jpg) that has it without any text (as Letterboxd prefers it)! I myself am a big fan of textless movie posters and so would suggest this be swapped as it's not nice to see a 'DVD' stamp on a poster! The TMDb one I suggested is also much better. Also as I'm new to LB I don't know how this voting system works so I'm putting 3.

  13. Private Notes About a User

    I'd love to be able to add a note to user profiles, that only I could see. This is a social network, where I like to follow friends, but it's not facebook and there's a decent chance they're not using their real name and a recognizable avatar picture... so it would be nice to be able to note "This is Steve".

  14. Smart Lists

    I'd love if some of the ingenuity that goes into the Year in Review was available to me on a more personalized, and regular basis.

    It would be great if I could see some auto-generated lists, highlighting 'Movies that you rate a full star higher than the letterboxd average', or 'Movies you haven't watched but a friend has written a review for'.

    Maybe there are just a few of these that Letterboxd generates as part of the user overview (like the biggest deviation from average ratings, that would be nice to view for everyone), maybe Letterboxd just makes a custom,…

  15. Group friend activity by movie

    One big gap in the social aspect of Letterboxd is the ability to see the feedback of friends, aggregated by movie.

    I'd love to be able to look at a list of all movies my friends have reviewed, sorted by number of different reviews from friends.

    Instead, I need to either go to a specific movie and see if any friend has reviewed it, or keep my eye on the activity feed to see one of those reviews fly by.

    Neither of those options serve the purpose of knowing that there's a movie that I haven't heard of that 5…

  16. The movie poster for Stockholm (2019) is not correct and is some bootleg poster off the internet.

    Please use the correct official poster for the film. As a producer, I can provide the proper poster via a link or email if required. The correct one is used on imdb and most other sites.

  18. Favorite films

    There should really be a toggle option to hide the "Favorite Films" section on my profile page. I don't like the idea of displaying just four favorite films, and I choose to display my top ten favorite films in a list instead, so it's irksome to see the "Don’t forget to select your favorite films!" message on my profile. This seems like a really simple and obvious feature to implement, but I suppose I'm in the minority who thinks so.

  19. Rating box bars missing average rating of total users rating

    All the information is there but miss the average rate from all total users rating. I think that seeing the number with bars is very helpful

  20. Saved Filters

    I repeatedly check if there are movies by a director or actor on a streaming service. Right now I have to do each of those individually. It will be nice to filter them all at once, and save this filter
