  1. Add Ratings from other sources to the film page

    I't would be great to see ratings from other sources like IMDB, TMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, below the Letterboxd ratings,

  2. Correct the “more services” feature

    The “more services” feature is great for telling you where you might be able to stream a film. But it is incorrect on so many occasions. For example, it says that Brawl in Cell Block 99 is streaming on showtime anytime. But this is false.

    It’s a great feature in theory if you can get it right.

  3. PLEASE fix the unsynced date problem with reviews!

    It makes ZERO sense that one can log a watched film by a specific date but yet the text box itself seems to have its own separate, invisible / hidden & thus ~uneditable date.. when really the logs should be the ONLY date valid!

    Because for purposes of backdating things, it would be very useful to visit the "Year-in-Review" stats pages or the "Reviews" section & see all the text logs for any year simply by sorting. Except that isn't possible.. instead:

    "0 REVIEWS" shows on the Stats pages. (false info!)
    "You haven't written any reviews during YEAR." (lies)
    ie:…

  4. Add a distinction between feature films, tv shows and maybe others types of media (short films, mini tv series, etc.).

    It doesn't need to be something big like having a different page layout for movies and series. It's just that if I enter a page of a tv series that I don't know, I confuse it for a movie. A simple one or two words description like "feature film"/"tv series" next to the title or somewhere on the page would be enough.

  6. Add more pronouns/an option for custom pronouns

    I go by ey/em pronouns and would really appreciate being able to use these on letterboxd as well

  7. Improve GoWatchIt matching algorithm

    There are a number of titles that letterboxd gets wrong when using the gowatchit service filter option. For instance, navigating to the "Okja" page and clicking "More services" under the "Watch" banner, the page from gowatchit lists the title as "Oka!" which is an entirely different movie. This explains why "Okja" does not show up on the Netflix service filter in letterboxd, even though it is a Netflix original.

    Those names are similar enough, but it also makes some nonsensical errors - "The Human Surge" links to a movie called "The Lovers and the Despot". There are many more examples.

  8. Disallow reviews and ratings from being created until a film is released, be it at a festival, screening, theatrical, or otherwise.

    While you can't stop people who haven't seen a film from rating and reviewing it, films should be "locked" until its first screening, be it at a film festival or a premiere. e.g. a film that isn't released until June should not have any ratings or reviews prior to its release date unless an early screening can be verified.

  9. Reorder films logged on the same day

    On the same day, I might watch film x and then film y, in that order. However, if I log film y first, the order in my diary will have them as y and then x, even though I watched x first. I think it would be a convenient feature to be able to reorganise the order of films logged under a given date in the diary view.

    For example, I have found evidence that I watched a film on a day in 2015 that I forgot to log at the time. There was another film I logged on that…

  10. Notify users when a title is removed from Letterboxd

    Letterboxd needs to implement an automated system that can notify users when a film they have watched, logged or added to a list is removed from the website.

    Sometimes, titles are removed from Letterboxd only to be added back, such as the 'Kenzo World' commercial. If I remember correctly, several hundred viewers had logged the ad when it first released on YouTube, including myself. It was only when I downloaded my Letterboxd archive that I noticed the film's URL field in the .csv file was empty, meaning it had probably been removed from Letterboxd at some point and was no…

  13. Add a "self" tab on actor pages

    IMDb uses it to distinguish between a role played and when the person is themselves in something like a behind the scenes documentary. Would be very helpful to declutter the actor pages while still allowing their self work to exist.

  14. Watchlist Mode for Lists

    By adding the tag "watchlist" to your Letterboxd list, it gains the watchlist attribute (which means that logging a film from the list removes it, just like with the default watchlist).

  15. Private Messages between other users and groups.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we had an feature where all of the other users could interact with each other? Since we have the blocking feature I believe that we should also have an system that benefits from that.
    With private messages, instead of filling the comment section and notify every user who has participated/ commented in that review, users could message each other.

  16. Make World Map more interactive

    When looking at the World Map on my stats page, if I click on a green country it will show me the movies that I've seen from that country.

    If I click on a gray country nothing happens. It would be great if clicking on the gray countries took me to a list of the top movies from that country, so I can start turning them green.

  17. Comment Section for Films

    Add a comment section for movies. So many top reviews for movies are single sentence joke that do not give any indication on why said person has rated a movie the way they have.

    Sometimes the reviews are funny, but I would rather have a well thought review over a small joke. Adding a comment section would allow people to still add these jokes to the film page.

  18. Add Kanopy to the list of services

    Kanopy is prominent enough a service to warrant a spot on Letterboxd’s list. (Also, lamentably, you will soon need to remove FilmStruck.)

  19. Replace Gowatchit with Justwatch

    It's been 5 months and Gowatchit still lists Filmstruck/Filmstruck+Criterion as one of the service providers. The Criterion channel has not been added. It does not include Hoopla, Kanopy, TubiTV, the Roku channel or IMDB Freedive (perhaps because they are free or free with a library card?). It also lists films as available although what is available is just something with a similar title. Justwatch is much more accurate, useful and is updated constantly.

  20. Option to hide ratings

    Hey guys

    Just had this thought about the option to hide ratings to films you havent seen yet.

    Personally I seem to unknowingly compare the film to the rating I've seen on lb but I'd rather go into a film without any expectations. The reviews I can avoid cause they are under the film description but the rating is in the same place.

    Just an idea
