  1. I think it would be fun to see some stats on the list pages (in addition to the percentage watched). In particular, it would be really cool to see either a ratings spread for how I've rated the movies I've watched on a given list, and/or an average rating. That way, I could compare, for example, how much I agree with the Sight and Sound list vs. the AFI list, or how much I liked movies in 2010 vs. 2012. Director/Actor stats like the ones on the stats pages could also be fun, as well as info about repeat watches,…

    • Favourite films as rated by my friends / all members

    • Dropdown menu: Sorted by Year, Decade, all Time

    Later you can include to search/sort by Genre, Country etc...

    Rateyourmusic.com got this feature and i think its pretty cool and helpfull.
    In your 2012 Review Page you already posted the highest (and lowest) rated Films of the Year, so i hope you also like this idea as a full feature.

  3. Allow lists to double as polls, where if you set it so, users can vote for the order on lists.

  4. Is there any way to introduce a feature where you choose what country you're based in and the system then displays release date info for THAT country rather than automatically using the US or earliest date?

    So I'd choose my country as U.K and then the release date for, say, 'Inside Llewyn Davis' would appear as 2014, not 2013.

    This would be a massive help as the best alternative I've found to personalising release dates is starting a private list and tagging every single film individually with its UK release date.

    This is not an immediate priority for a couple of reasons: a) the TMDb data for non US-territories is fairly patchy, meaning a lot of films would effectively have no release date if we allowed switching to, for example, UK dates and b) this would affect the cacheability of parts of the site in a way that complicates our model.

  5. I realise that the link to my profile appears when I hover, but it is an extra step…

  6. I would love to open a movie page for a film I have seen and easily see what date I saw it last. I.e. under the watched/loved/watchlist-symbols, it could be a small text-line showing when I last logged the film.

  7. Currently I see the same thing every time I log on. It's very boring. The popular review should be "Popular this week" or something otherwise these reviews will be in the same order forever.

  8. A year plus later, I'm just discovering that you added "Related Films," i.e. Collections. Thanks for that! (FYI: I think I've missed seeing them because I rarely scroll down below the recent/popular reviews. Might be worth moving that one row of Related Films above the Reviews. Food for thought.)

    Now that we have Collections, I'd love to browse them. At minimum, I'd like the ability to browse all Collections you're tracking. Ideally, I'd love the ability to sort descending that Collections browsing page by average rating of the films comprising said collections. So if the 8 harry potter movies have…

  9. When you guys are compiling the 2014 Year in Review you should have a most watched films in a year section for the member who watched the most movies this year.

  10. I think adding an option to remove a film from one of my lists or seeing an option to do so when I go to the film page would be really effective instead of going through the list editing page every time. Even something simple like an X in the "add to list" menu or in the top right of the poster that removes it would be great.

  11. My "Highest Rated" stars list is filled with stunt people and costumed little persons. My "Highest Rated" directors list is heavy with animators from yesteryear, most of whose works I've never seen.

    With all due respect to the above persons, most of them have made these lists because I've given one or two high ratings to a specific work or two, but ~not~ to their collected ~body~ of works — leaving my list rather uninformative for my liking.

    I realize you also have a "Most Watched" setting — but then I'm just left with Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg — who…

  12. Sort by Number of Fans, movies with a lot of fans are usually good and worthy of watching. Fans = number of people who put it in their favourite.

  14. Rather than having to use the date picker, would it be possible to type the date in the field?

    Good suggestion. It’s funny, for a long time that field only accepted type input, but the date picker has removed that ability. We’ll take a look at this. (Note, you can click the month/year button to quickly find other months/years.)

  15. A heavy percentage of my Activity tab space is used up by people who go on review-liking binges or watchlisting binges. If, say, all the movies one person watchlisted that day were collapsed into a simple "Lucy added 18 movies to her watchlist. Expand", the tab would be easier to browse and I'd feel encouraged to add more friends, as I could genuinely keep up with their film habits.

    The diary and discovery features of Letterboxd are appreciated, but ultimately it's a social network and if I can't socialize properly then I won't be making much use of it.

  16. For example, when you go to http://letterboxd.com/films/decade/1980s/genre/horror/by/rating/, you'll notice that after a few pages, there are films with no views or ratings that are still showing up before some movies with thousands of views. It would also be nice if, when sorting by rating, there was an option to filter out films with below a certain number of ratings or views so that movies with only a couple of high ratings aren't showing up so high.

  17. As the movie scrape/information already comes from tMDB, perhaps giving an option to link the accounts in some form or fashion, so both sites can exchange voting info, watchlists, ratings and reviews aso. I think perhaps both sites could benefit from this.

  18. "I want to watch a film" is not a boolean. The 'why' is important. Did a friend recommend it? Did it get good reviews? Does it have that actor I'm stalking in it?.

  19. I want to type in multiple actors and see what films they have been in together. Or see how many times a director collaborated with the same actor.
