  1. Possibility to filter films, which aren't specifically dated

    I missed a watch date on couple of films and only way I found to chech which films didn't have a date in my diary was to manually go through all of em. I would suggest you add a filter option for that, because it's a real pain in the ass if you notice that some months later and need to try to find out which film it is you didn't date properly.

      • Improve List organisation

        Currently we can sort by:
        Name useful for specific, one-off types of list but not very helpful when you've got a lot of 'Top 10' Lists or just can't remember exactly what you named something.

        'When Updated' useful for finding the most recent lists but not great for finding something you last edited a year ago, or a list that's edited at random intervals.

        'Popularity' for sorting through my own lists this isn't at all useful (unless I have a sudden desire to know what my most popular lists are)

        Equally we can only split between Public and Private.

        Would…

        • 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!

          • Filter a user's film list by 'reviewed' or 'not reviewed'

            It would be very useful to be able to see at a glance items which do not have a review in either one's own film list or the film list of another Letterboxd member.

            • I keep getting click bait spam on your app

              I’m really enjoying using this app and I’m new to the platform. So it’s worrying me that I always get the same type of click bait / phishing type of advert that claims I’ve won an iPhone cause I’m the 1000th customer. Please fix this, if I’m investing time and putting my info into this app, I need to be assured that data isn’t completely being ransomed to anybody. I’m not ignorant I know cause it’s free we can expect adverts but click bait spam ads, really ??

              • 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. :)

                  • Edit Favorites doesn't allow you to add new films (iPhone App)

                    You need to be out of edit mode to add a new movie to your favorites.

                    So instead of:
                    edit > remove > add > reorder > save
                    it's:
                    edit > remove > save > add > edit > reorder > save

                    • Show "Movie Status" on main pages

                      When scrolling through movies, there's no way to see what you've already marked as "watched"/"want to watch"/"liked". This functionality is available on Goodreads (for reference). Currently your browsing UX is not as pleasant as it could be due to the confusion of not knowing whether the "watched" movies that you see are already marked as such, which causes people like me to want to check/re-mark them.

                        Thanks for your feedback. We do have a “Fade Watched” option which you can engage for most poster grid views, that fades out films you’ve marked as watched. Showing watched, liked and watchlisted status for every film all the time in those views leads to a very busy interface and detracts from the browsing experience.

                      • 2016 Year in review

                        Hello,

                        My name is Andrei and I saw the 2016 Year in Review landing page. Everything is really nice except the first screen of the landing page (the one with the dot that is flipping and changing colors). That screen is really confusing because I was waiting for the content to load (for about 10 minutes) until I scrolled down. I hope that my feedback can be of use :).

                        Have a nice day,
                        Andrei

                        • 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?

                              • have some way of seeing film ratings when viewing a list

                                As the title says really. When I'm viewing a list for inspiration for stuff to watch, it would be handy to see the average rating and/or number of likes without having to view the film's page.

                                Perhaps only displaying this in list mode would be sufficient, and use up some of the blank space in that view.

                                  We’re planning to at least show the list owner’s rating in list detail view. We’re not fond of average ratings across the site, but will investigate other options for representing the best films, perhaps a sort option by popularity.

                                      We cache a number of data points in the site, which occasionally leads to inconsistent totals. When the relevant cache expires, your totals will correct themselves. We’ll take a look and see if we can improve our handling here by not allowing negatives!

                                      It won't show all films in my list even when I set it to show all. They only appear when the list is set display in any order other than 'ranked.'

                                      What gives??

                                      • A few glitches when it comes to lists

                                        I've encountered two frustrating glitches when it comes to lists. First, with lists of a certain size (~2,500 films or more) I cannot edit them on the desktop browser without the website subsequently deleting every film on the list past ~2,500 (I can't remember the exact number). This problem does not occur when I edit lists on mobile. Secondly, I've found that for these huge lists, it also likes to skip a number. For my ranked list, which has 5,151 films on it, the list will skip 2,920, going straight from 2,919 to 2921. As a result of this, the…

                                          The list editing limit on the web is about 3,300 we believe. We’re looking to adopt the same approach as in our app, but it’s not ready yet.

                                          The missing list items is probably due to a film in the list having been deleted from the site (we routinely remove entries that TMDb removes for not being films). Adding and removing a film from said list should fix it, but obviously that’s not possible if you strike the first issue. Noted.

                                          Please make it possible to save or bookmark lists from other people. It sucks having to search every time for a given list.
                                          Alternatively, show the liked lists on the profile under "lists", below the own lists.
