  1. Add a feature to see if films are watchlisted by your friends

    On the movie details page, so that I can see how many folks I know are interested in watching a movie to determine whether I should watch it by myself or gather the posse to watch it together.

  2. Sync with IMDB - Both ways.

    It would be great if it would be possible to sync my Letterboxd Watchlist with IMDB, so I don't have to do the same work on IMDB, I have done on Letterboxed already. It would be much easier to export my List from Letterboxd, an import it on IMDB.

  3. Ban spammers/bots etc

    There are many lists that start with [Watch], FREE, LIVE etc that are advertising dodgy torrent links to random films. They are cluttering up the site. Could you please actively ban these?

  4. Search is too slow

    Search needs an improvement. Sometimes I search for a film and after waiting for a long time, I get a "currently unavailable" error.

  5. Fix the API so changes made to TMDb port over quickly and automatically

    I know you're already on top of this to some degree, but I can't stress enough how important it is. Right now the site's biggest problem is that changes made to TMDb never make it to Letterboxd without your intervention. Not just posters, but everything. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to add a director or fix a release date or something on TMDb, only to find that somebody else has already fixed it. And it's not that somebody else fixed it only a few hours previously. I know of many cases where a friend of mine…

    TMDb caches its API content for six hours, which means we can’t update changes any quicker than that. We do have a method to perform a manual import for new additions, and will continue to improve the importing process where we can. We are investigating a bug that’s causing the search index not to update, and some film updates not to come across.

  6. Tag Sorting/Filtering

    It would be nice if I could go to Tags, select a tag, and sort the resulting list of films based on the dates I logged them in my diary. Since the tags are on the log entries and not on the films themselves, it seems like this should be something that is allowed.

    Another idea would be to allow more robust filtering on the diary (and on other lists), maybe filter by tags you've created?

  7. Give the option to invite several friends at once via email

    It would be faster and easier to invite friends if we can send an invite to several emails at once (as opposed to sending an invite to each individual email, one at a time).

  9. Random Movie Button

    I am sure you have had this asked for plenty but here goes!

    As I have been adding movies to my watch list, I realise as the list grows I am less and less likely to watch the ones that I added earliest, as I would have to scroll all the way down.

    My simple idea is to have a button that will cycle through your watch list and pick a random movie - for when I am looking for a movie to watch!

    Could also possibly do the same for the site as a whole and it’s entire database…

    WeÆll be adding FB and Twitter sharing once the site is public. The best way to get notifications about new reviews is to follow other users and then check your Activity page regularly — it works just like Twitter or Tumblr.

  11. Status of API?

    This is a general enquiry as to the status of the API

  13. Please don't use 'recent' to only mean the most current films.

    By this I mean, both the 'recent likes' or 'recent reviews' should not be based on when the film came out, but rather when the person rated or reviewed them. As it is, the films most recently released will always be pictured on a person's profile. I'd much rather see what they' most recently reviewed, seen or 'liked' even if it's not the most recent release. Does this make sense?

    Years in Review are created for all years in which you have logged at least 10 films or tagged at least one list with the relevant YIR tags.

    The website end-of-year YIR has been generated annually since our first full year: 2012.

    A combined stats view for all years is in the works!

  16. Can we make the Netflix import fail report a bit more descriptive.

    I can't tell what the issue is when my Netflix settings don't import. I just get a "try again later" message. But that doesn't tell me if the error was a connection error, a server error, an error because I have too many reviewed movies on Netflix or something... I want to know if this is an error that won't go away.

  17. Flag Netflix/iTunes/Amazon/streaming service removals

    It would be useful if there were an option to flag items that have been removed from streaming services. I love the ability to filter by availability on Netflix, for example, but I find the resulting lists are always littered with titles that are no longer available there.

  19. Comment/Review Box Enhancements

    I think it'd be wise to "enhance" the comment and review boxes/fields.

    Many people on this site have no idea how to utilize the html. to solve this you could, much like Microsoft Word, put those supported html functions in some sort of toolbar in the comment and review fields. there'd be buttons for Bold (B), Italics (I), Blockquote (""), Link (this seems to give people the most trouble), etc.

    Also, I think it'd be cool to include a spoiler tag. Much like a link, you could write what you want to say (equivalent of the www address for a…

  20. Add Netflix integration to the "Films" list in profiles

    It might be nice to see what's available on Netflix/Netflix Instant from your profile page for purposes of re-watching. Looks like it only exists in the Watchlist at present.
