  1. Adding a link to Blogger

    I have a movie blog that I do with a couple of my buddies that I would love to just be able to post my Letterboxd reviews to as well. Would it be possible to get a link by the Facebook and Twitter symbols to Blogger.com as well?

  3. Change the calendars so the week starts on Sunday

    In Canada, at least, a calendar view always shows Sunday as the first day of the week, and Saturday as the last.

    I've incorrectly entered a few movies on the wrong date already because of this. It's a minor annoyance.

  5. show followers ratings

    When you are on a film page, you can see "Your friends who have watched [title of movie]". That opens the list of friends with a few columns including the heart. I would love to see their ratings here, as well as a link to their review of this film if they have one. Here is why it is important to have this information here.

    The natural flow is to see that someone reviewed or rated a film you haven't seen. You may read their review, and then take a look at the film page. Now you are interested in…

  7. personalize the rating system

    I don't know if this fits the philosophy of letterboxd's rating system, but I think there will be an average overall still:

    How about adding a feature to everybody's profile page (maybe with none or default settings if the user chooses to not change it) that enables you to personalize how you value the star rating with individual, editable expressions.
    I think that some users rate movies more severely or more mildly than others. The personalized rating description would make it more easy and fun to classify a certain user's rating.

    Let me be clear that this would be a…

  8. add release dates to (new) films

    maybe it would be possible to show the release date depending on the very country you live in (maybe add location settings to the profile?)

  11. better compariosns

    Loving the site in general but I find what I really like doing is seeing how my friends have rated films. You can do this but it's about 3 click from each film's page. I think on the right side bar where you have "watched By" you should maybe rather than just show the avataar of the people who's veen it to show 5 people, friends as priority and their ratings. Then have a "More" button to see all your friends's ratings or everyone's ratings.

    I'd also like to be able to have at a glance ratings comparisons for actors…

    Some good stuff here. We’ve toyed with inline ratings for friends on film pages, but haven’t hit on a layout which works but doesn’t busy up the page any more than it is already.

    We plan to make the Diary-style layout an option for more pages (such as actors/directors) which will help with your second point.

  12. Consider unifying or linking ratings between films and reviews

    I reviewed The Muppets and gave it a star rating and then went back a few days later and decided to give it another star. When I click on my review it shows the updated star rating on the right side but not by the title of the movie at the top above my review. Also, on my profile page under the picture of the movie in the recently watched section it also shows the old star rating. This happened with another movie I reviewed but I can't remember what it was

    This happens because we save the rating for a film and the rating applied to a review separately (to allow a rating to change over repeated viewings). We’re reviewing how to make this a better experience.

    To fix it, go to the review page and use the “Edit” option in the right column to edit your rating within the review.

  13. Display original year of release, not the US year of release.

    I have encountered several non-US films (which seldomly have their original title in the database, another issue which might need work), which had weird release years, sometimes decades apart from its original release year, just because these films happened to have a very late US release. Please do not pick the US release year as the default release year.

  14. Keep track of films seen more than once

    I have watched some films more than once. I actually watch some film quite regularly. I would like to have an easy way to keep track of films I have seen more than once. A simple sort option would do.

  15. Sort watchlist by release should show earlier releases first

    When I sort my watchlist by release date it seems to show later releases first and earlier releases last. It would be more useful if the earlier releases (films already on release or due to be released soon) were shown first.

  16. Link to Wikipedia article of the film

    How about adding a link to the Wikipedia article of a film, perhaps next to the iTunes and Amazon links on the left?
    It happens so often that you want to read additional info, more than is available on IMDb or TMDb, and most of the people head to Wikipedia for this, I think. So providing a link would come in handy there.

  18. Customizable view on all pages

    In addition to the table view that has been suggested (http://feedback.letterboxd.com/forums/136771-general/suggestions/2493276-add-a-table-view-for-the-film-list-with-sortable-), I would like to be able to change the view on different pages.
    Sometimes the site uses large posters with only a few on a page, other times the posters are small and a lot more fit (naturally, at the expense of easy legibility). I'm sure a lot of thought went into which views are default for which pages, but I would like to be able to toggle between several options. (Including the table view where possible!)

  19. Films like button

    it might be an idea to add a button or a panel on the side of a page when you click on a certain film to suggest films that are similar or the sequals and prequals to that film.
