I suggest you ...

  1. Add groups/clubs that users can join (and tag members when watching films together, etc)

    Enable users to create groups they can join, such as "Filmspotting fans," "365 Movies in 365 Days" or groups by location, etc. sort of like Facebook groups.

  2. Make friends who viewed the same movie more obvious.

    When you go to one of your own reviews for a film, in the bottom right it shows other people who have seen the film and has a link to a page with which of your friends have seen the film as well. I'd rather just see the images of the friends who've seen it (either instead of, or in addition to my non-friends who have seen it). If you're worried about cluttering the interface, perhaps a hover-over reveal, so I don't have to load a whole new page just to see one person's name.

  3. Support spoiler tags within a review/list/comment to indicate partial spoilers

    It would be great if it was possible to only put a spoiler warning on part of a review. That way, people who haven't seen the movie can read part of the review instead of not being able to read any of it, just because there is ONE spoiler in the review.

  4. Lists Should Have Default Sorting/Display Options

    Right now it seems Lists default to show covers with any added notes not being visible until the viewer manually switches View modes (which is just a small button). I like to have my lists with a bit of substance. I'd like to see an option while creating a List to be able to default your specific list to whatever view style suits it best.

  5. Embedding lists/reviews on other sites.

    Not exactly sure how this might work, but somehow make it possible for me to embed my lists on a blog or Facebook or some other web site (complete with images).

    Each title could link back to Letterboxd.com.

  6. Show writers (and producers/cinematographers/composers) credit on film page

    Simple enough: screenwriters should have a place on each film's main page, don't ya think?

  7. Auto-complete fields don't match foreign/alternate movie titles

    For example the movie "Hasta La Vista" (which is a Belgian, Flemish movie) won't appear in the search when you typ "Hasta La Vista").
    As far as I can see, this is caused because this movie also has an English title on TMDb (Come As You Are), though it's also translated in Dutch.
    Would it be possible to search for foreign languages on TMDb too, and preferably show them in the foreign language on Letterboxd too (at least the title)?

    Letterboxd link for this movie: http://letterboxd.com/film/come-as-you-are/
    TMDb link: http://www.themoviedb.org/movie/76451-hasta-la-vista

    The site search (magnifying glass in the header) works to locate films by alternative/foreign title. The auto-complete when adding a film needs to do this also, this is planned for the future.

  8. Diary as a calendar

    Allow to view the diary as a tabled calendar using the posters as film indicators

  11. Match (and compare) members with similar taste

    Add a match button to every profile so you can check immediately if somebody has the same taste as you.

    You can use the like and/or rating of a movie to produce a list of similar movies/similar profile or a similar %.

  12. Tag films, directors, actors and studios in reviews/comments

    When I'm writing a review, I often want to reference other films the director has made or an actor has starred in. In the review dialogue there's now way to do this as far as I can tell.

    Is it possible to have tags like on the individual movie page that would show other films? Maybe it could be a button that opens a list of actors/directors, so as not to take up too much room.

  14. do something with the search function (and I don't know what)

    It took me a while to work out how to search for films I wanted to add to my watchlist (not my diary). The add to diary button is obviously the main thing, but it took me a mo to work out that the magnifying glass to the left turns it into normal search. When in the Watchlist page, the instructions are great (e.g. hover or sidebar), but I was all "But how do I find the film??) and if you click add to diary, there isn't a way to turn that into a "add to watchlist" instead. Ugh, this…

    I think we’re going to add the same auto-complete box on the watchlist page that you get on normal film lists. It works really well.

    Thanks for the feedback, by the way. I think you explained it perfectly.

    I’m not sure what we’re going to do with the search box. It may change soon though, because the “Add to diary” button is getting an overhaul. Big things are happening :-)

  15. Integrate "Now Playing Near You!" notifications into Watchlist

    I watch tons of trailers, most of them several months in advance of the films' release. I file away the ones I want to see, but it's impossible to keep up with when and where every film hits theaters (if it hits theaters at all). So I would love it if Letterboxd could notify me when the films on my Watchlist are in theaters near me.

    Thanks for the tip – we definitely want to support 1Password, since we use it ourselves. One of the developers has already reported this issue. It will be fixed soon.

  17. add a 'follow back' button

    ...on the activity/incoming/ page for people that have started following me.

    Thanks! :)

  18. Netflix

    Precheck netflix movies before suggesting the user adds them, many are not available... and maybe even a vote demand so netflix see a want for the title... down the track.
