  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

    Just add a note that a comment was removed or edited.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. 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…

  14. In lists, show your own ratings instead of the list owner's

    For lists like the top 250 and lists in general is pretty annoying that you can only see the owner's rating instead of your own.

  15. Better comment section/notifications

    This idea can be applied to any platform Letterboxd is used on, but the way comment sections are manged is very out of date and not user friendly. The only way to know about comments is through emails and that can leave one's inbox very cluttered. Rather than what we already have, maybe adopt a design similar to Instagram or YouTube where people can like comments and reply in subsections, and also implementing a notification tab where you can easily see who liked your review or started following you.

  16. Accessing user’s reviews easier

    When I’m on a user’s page and they have a review for a movie that I click on in their films section, on one of their lists, and anywhere else on their page...it should always take me to their review. Often it takes me to the movie page, but I want to read their review not look at the movie. From their review you could have a link to the movie page. Also, if im on a movie page and it says that one of my friends have reviewed it and I click on that, it should bring me to…

  17. Opt into Hide Ratings Graph

    Hide ratings distribution on movies you haven't yet rated. Make it an opt-in feature. Have a "show ratings" button if you opt in.

    To avoid biasing my enjoyment of the movie! If, for example, I'm using Letterboxd for movie recommendations - when people make lists of movies they suggest - I'd like to click on movies to read the plot synopsis and maybe look at the thumbnail, without seeing the ratings.

  18. 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).

  19. Hide followed user scores until mark the movie as seen.

    I wish there was a way to hide the user score friends have given to a film I haven't seen yet. Of course this should be optional, and off by default since I'm pretty sure many people won't care for it.

    I picture it as having the scores collapsed under the title "Activity from friends", or "Watched by" on the app.
