    • Move the "delete list" and "A-Z" buttons

      I'm hoping you guys will consider adding an "options" tab under "edit list" that would include both the "delete list" and alphabetize options. Too many times I've accidentally alphabetized and then saved a long list I've made or accidentally deleted one. This would be a minor but much approved change. Thank you.

      • Add user settings for primary/default Watch panel options

        On each film page, the Watch panel currently shows Amazon, Netflix, and iTunes links by default (as applicable), with other options hidden under the "more services" link. It'd be very helpful to be able to customize what services are shown upfront by default.

        For example, if I want to always see availability for HBO GO without having to click "more services", it would be much more convenient.

        Perhaps this could even be based on the "Favorite Services" settings for people signed in with a GoWatchIt account.

        • Make friends' ratings more accessible

          Each movie page on the site shows a list of all friends who have watched that title, however if I want to see their ratings I have to hover over each of their icons individually. This is especially annoying when viewing the site on a mobile device where hovering isn't an option, forcing you to tap each user's icon to see their rating.

          It would be much easier if those ratings from friends were always visible, similar to how it works in the iOS app.

              • 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 have over 5,000 movies on my list and at this point I'd like to just clear it out altogether than go through it movie by movie

                  • Integrate with Filmstruck as their rating and tracking engine!

                    I love Letterboxd, and I love Filmstruck. Sadly, Filmstruck has no rating system nor way to track what I've watched. How cool would it be if your two organizations partnered up! It would bring visibility to Letterboxd and give Filmstruck a huge missing feature.

                    Hopefully you're at least having coffee with the Filmstruck folks on occasion. :)

                    • 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…

                      • How do I import notes from a previously exported list?

                        When I export my Letterboxd Lists, the Notes I have entered appear in a field with the DESCRIPTION header. However, there does not seem to be a way to import those Notes into a new Letterboxd List. In other words, there is not a field in the Import Header template that seems to correspond to the DESCRIPTION (or Notes) field. Can you help?

                        • Movies without dates or tags

                          It would be nice if there were a way to check to see if any of your logged movies don't have a date or a tag associated with them. Sometimes I'll just forget to do one or the other but there's no easy way to check to see if a movie I've logged needs one or the other. Thank you!

                          • 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.

                              • Show the writer/author on title page!!!

                                A FILM STARTS WITH A SCRIPT
                                “To make a great film you need three things – the script, the script and the script.” – Alfred Hitchcock
                                Whilst there are many important jobs in film (producer, cinematographer...), I think that the writer just MUST be up there directly to be seen and not hidden with the other cast and crew.
                                IMDB and Plex, both display the name of the writer directly below that of the director. For good reason. I find not doing this is grossly negligent!

                                      • Add Netflix Series Documentaries

                                        Even though some Netflix docs have multiple episodes they're still Documentaries and i'd really like to add them to my movies

                                        • Adding colour-coded borders to movie 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.
