  1. Search ratings by star level

    When you search all the rating given to a certain film there should be a way to skip straight to a certain star rating. For example I wanted to see all the 1 star ratings for "The Avengers" and had to scroll through all the 5 star rating, then all the 4 star rating etc. It would be really great if I could skip straight to a certain star rating.

  3. method for ranking seen films more precisely

    Ranking on a 10 half-star scale can only provide so much precision. Active users will have pages of films all 3-stars, all 2.5-stars, etc. but for people who watch many films, there can be huge variances even among films with the same ranking.

    I propose a system which displays two random films from a user's watched films list with the same star ranking, and asks the user to pick which of the two they prefer. over time, the site will stack their films in a perfect list of best-to-worst.

  4. Email just once about comments until we visit the site

    You know how Facebook and other sites will send you an email about a comment for a thread you've subscribed to, but they don't send any more emails about activity on that thread until you visit it? I think Letterboxd should do the same thing. I'm afraid to not check my mail for more than 2 hours for fear I will have thousands of emails from Letterboxd.

    We did take this approach initially, but then we decided to include the comment text in the email, which removed the need to return to the site at all in order to keep reading the thread. Which meant we had to always send emails.

  5. enlarge the posters

    It would be helpful if the posters can be enlarged with a click

  6. Bug? Line breaks disappear from reviews.

    This has happened to my reviews several times. This one for example http://letterboxd.com/triggermarco/film/argo/ once consisted of three paragraphs. Now it's suddenly one long block of text. No idea how this happened. I posted it just two days ago.

  7. Make the line-up of movies on the "Films" page a live feed

    Love to sit and watch for review of movies I've previously seen to see what others think of them, but I constantly have to refresh. As I understand it, this isn't a terribly difficult thing to script,

  8. Total number of people who have a movie on their Watch List.

    Currently for a movie we have the total number people who Watched, Like & rated. I think it would be a good Idea to add a "On Watchlist" option too.

    This would really help in determining how much a movie is anticipated before the release.

  9. have a "buy this" option on the add screen

    On the film add screen, you should have a "buy this" button, that remind you to purchase on DVD/BluRay when it comes out.

  12. Imdb/total film/empire links

    It would be great to be able to link or film magazines to our letterboxd accounts. I find a lot of my movie news from places link imdb and digital copies of film magazines mostly on my tablet. It is really annoying to have to close an application and open up letterboxd to add something to my watch list. I don't know if there was some way this could me made easier? Thanks

  13. Expand Review Window

    Right now the window that pops up when you review a movie is tiny. You can expand the actual space your write in but that won't change the outer area and you're left having to awkwardly scroll around while writing your review. It makes writing anything more than a paragraph a bit annoying and you either have to deal with it or open up something like MS Word to type your review then copy/paste it over.

    It'd be nice to be able to increase the size of the outer window (blue area) so we can easily read/write our review.

    I'd like to:

    See movies that aren't out yet in a differenet way
    Order my watch list
    Allow others (maybe just people that I follow?) add movies to my watch list + maybe reorder it.

  15. Improve mobile site

    1) please do something about the popup windows/blocks, like the rate/log/review window, you should push it to another page it or fill box in the page somehow, so it's not a popup. It's quite tiny and I feel uncomfortable.. The input field is a bit pain since it's small already and doesn't fill the whole area over the keyboard.
    2) I find it difficult to rate a movie, especially if I want to put half star.

    Otherwise I like the mobile version, it's clean, simple and performs smoothly.

  16. Make it easier to add/remove items to/from a list

    Now it's easy to add items to a list, by clicking the "Add this film to a list" link on the right side of the page.
    However, it's quite hard to see if this movie is in one of your (private) lists. Private lists don't show op in the lists view.
    It would be nice if you click open the "Add this film to a list" box, you would be able to see to which lists you already added the it. If you would click that list again you would be able to remove it from there.

  17. Add pages for the review section

    e.g. you search "high rating", and want to go to the last page to view the lowest ratings, you have to click "next page" a ton of times before you can get there.

    So add in pages and a "last page" option so you can go through them and go to the very last reviews easily.

  18. Increase the session timeout

    I like having letterboxd always open and it's annoying to have to refresh the page and login every time I come back to it, especially since a lot of requests are done through Ajax, so when the session expires and then I try to like a film, it just does nothing.

  19. Search function

    I often find that I have to press 'enter' twice after keying in my search term into the search box, only then will the search start. Feels like its one press to enter the term and a second to start the search. It's not a sitebreaker, but its counterintuitive and disrupts the site experience.

    I'm not sure if its a site problem, or just my browser. I'm using Google Chrome, version 23.0.1271.64, on a Mac 10.6.8. Thanks!

  20. Start tracking people who are creating multiple accounts

    I've seen evidence that some members are creating sock puppet accounts to 'like' their reviews and bump up their popularity and profile on the site. Is this practice going to be traced?
