  1. Add Watchlist icon to poster overlay

    If you put the icon next to 'watched' and 'favorite' it would save the extra clicking and hunting to see if i already have the item on my watchlist. Also, it would save the extra clicks of having to put the item on watchlist, which is a frequently used option, like 'watched' and 'favorite'.

  2. Allow users to upload a profile picture without Twitter or Gravatar

    Please allow users the option to upload an avatar/profile picture without having to connect a Twitter (I don't have a Twitter, for example) or create a Gravatar account. Uploading profile photos directly to an account is a simple feature that most all other social media platforms allow!

  3. iOS app: iPad optimized layouts

    The ios app is nice and all, but I have an iPad and phone apps on iPad are just awful.

  4. iOS app: URL schemes

    Very excited about the iOS app being released today, but I'm sort of disappointed there is no URL scheme support. The ability to launch the Letterboxd app from another app or jump right to adding a specific film would be great for the many people who use launcher apps on iOS. But just in general it'd be a good move to allow other apps to interact more directly with your app.

  5. Add the ability to sort by list size

    Lists are a great way to find similar/related films, but the function has been overrun by lists such as "2015 Films, Ranked"-- lists that are more about the user than the film. These lists may serve a purpose but when I'm looking at an obscure film with 95 "rank" lists and only 5 related to the actual content of the film, it's very frustrating.

    Of course it's not feasible to ask users to mark their lists as such. Sorting by list size (smallest to largest) would be an elegant way to push the smaller, more thoughtfully curated lists to the…

    It should be 2015, but TMDb has no option to list multiple release dates for a single territory. So those who believe the wide release date is the correct one for USA have kept changing it to 2016.

  7. Arrange List By Your Own Rating

    I have private lists of the movies watched during a specific year, and would love to be able to arrange them by my own star rating. The site already allows to arrange lists by all users' average rating, but it sure would be swell to be able to arrange by my own personal ratings. Thanks.

  8. Functionality like canistreamit.com

    I'd love to be able to go straight from letterboxed to some sort of streaming availability for a particular title. So functionality like Canistreamit or just straight integration with them...where you could click on a "look up title on canistreamit" button.

  9. add "Liked" to import CSV format

    I love using Letterboxd and want to make my account as canonical as possible an expression of my film viewing history. I've combined my dvdpedia and netflix data into one huge de-duped comma free spreadsheet but only one thing is preventing me from importing about 1300 of my entries...I want to have them marked as "Liked" on letterboxd and there is currently no field for that (I prefer using "Like" to star ratings).

    I would love it if you could add a boolean field for "Liked" to your importer, and would sincerely appreciated it if you could drop me an…

  10. Profile -> Films: Merge "Watched" and "Rated"

    I think it would nicer if "Watched" and "Rated" would be merged in one page, with the thumbnail size of "Watched" (small posters). They would have the watched and rating icons, first overlaid, and second below the poster.

    When I'm seeing friends' profiles, I want to see all this information at one look. And normally watched/rated overlap to a very high degree. I don't see the downside in merging these two view.

    Also, I'd implement intelligent pagination (if you scroll down, a new set of films is added to current page) like Twitter and Facebook do, instead of discrete "Next/Prev"…

  12. On a film page, show me if my friends have it in their Watchlist

    The ability to see which of my friends have seen/logged a given film is great; I’d love to also be able to see which of my friends wants to see the film, and then we could arrange to see it together. Great opportunity to take the social aspect of Letterboxd off the internet and into the real world.

  13. Fix Add to Lists Problem

    I posted about this on Twitter awhile ago, but it's still a problem. When I go to a film page, I no longer have the option to add that film to a list.

    Instead I see a new option, which wasn't there before, which says "Start a new list with this film."

    On Twitter you suggested that this was because I didn't have any lists, but I do! Indeed, when I select "Lists" from the dropdown under my user name, I can see them all.

    I thought the problem might be because I have them all set to Private, but…

    At present you must have at least one public list for this to work. The reason this approach didn’t work for you is that the cached value for the number of public lists on your account didn’t update in a timely fashion. Give it 24 hours. You’ll need to keep at least one public list for this option to appear. We will fix it, but as part of another unit of work, so may take a while.

  14. Film search bar

    I think it would be very convenient if the instant search used for adding films and on the Films page were located on every page. Using the standard search bar is much more complicated than this.

  16. Lists on film page

    If I were to go onto an individual films page, I would like to see if that movie is in one of my lists.

    Good idea. The quickest way to do this right now is to click the Lists icon below the poster, then change the view to filter by You instead of everyone. Be good to have that on the page somewhere though, you’re right.

  17. Search within a member’s account or list

    It would be extremely useful to be able to search for titles in certain lists, such as the top 250/other poll lists and 3rdrevelation's "youtube collection". Does this make sense?

  18. Add more statistics to Year In Review page, update more than once a year

    I am trying to make my film-watching as robust as possible. the more statistics i can see, the better. I set personal annual goals of number to watch, amount of special collections, foreign languages, etc. if I could see these on a rolling basis I'd have an idea of how far I'm leaning in any one direction (ie oh shit I've watched 70% comedies this year). Ideas include adding:

    -breakdown of languages watched
    -breakdown of award-winning or special collection (ie criterion) films watched
    -infographic of nations watched (ie a map showing the globe and 4 films made in Israel, 16…

  19. Create a Letterboxd 'Top Films List'

    Essentially a list akin to IMDB's famous Top 250, but using the ratings data from Letterboxd users instead. A list that allowed for lesser-seen films to show up would be ideal but any such list would be a great addition in my opinion.
