    • Apps: please put a randomise button on the watchlist

      In my watchlist I would like a ‘random item’ Button in the app - I simply can’t decide what to watch!

        There is already a random sort on our website for your watchlist. A technical limitation in how we randomise the list has prevented us from adding this to our apps as yet.

      • Search parsing improvements

        There are a small variety of synonyms that, if handled by the search feature, would make browsing movies a lot easier. Roman numerals, for instance, are treated separately from Arabic numerals, and so 'Ghostbusters 2' turns up no entries.

        This is quick and minor, but also easy and rewarding.

        • Auto-complete fields don't match foreign/alternate movie titles

          For example the movie "Hasta La Vista" (which is a Belgian, Flemish movie) won't appear in the search when you typ "Hasta La Vista").
          As far as I can see, this is caused because this movie also has an English title on TMDb (Come As You Are), though it's also translated in Dutch.
          Would it be possible to search for foreign languages on TMDb too, and preferably show them in the foreign language on Letterboxd too (at least the title)?

          Letterboxd link for this movie: http://letterboxd.com/film/come-as-you-are/
          TMDb link: http://www.themoviedb.org/movie/76451-hasta-la-vista

            The site search (magnifying glass in the header) works to locate films by alternative/foreign title. The auto-complete when adding a film needs to do this also, this is planned for the future.

          • implement a better system for linking posters from TMDb.

            I have added many, many films to TMDb. I always add an image for the movie poster. When waiting for the film to show up on Letterboxd, or forcing the conversion with the URL import, it seems like about the image only imports about half the time. A blank box is really unsightly. I understand the necessity for allowing only one permanent image, but the import system isn't working correctly if I've created the TMDb page, and have uploaded an image, before I even import the data to Letterboxd.

            • Editing an entry in the diary should not re-direct you to the film's page

              When editing entries in the diary to add tags, edit reviews or ratings, and after saving the entry, you end up on the film's page (though the diary url curiously remains). You first have to reload the page to get back to your diary. This makes quickly editing anything more than a single entry a big pain. I don't see why this behavior exists in the first place.

              • Auto Rewatch of movies

                Well, i'm not sure i understood the rewatch button, well i guess for movies we've seen long time ago and we didn't know the date, it would be great, but is there a chance to see a feature kind of when the movie is already logged in the diary, the "rewatched" button is by default checked, or just removed so automatically the movie is logged twice and more.

                • Create a Letterboxd 'Top Films List'

                  Essentially a list akin to IMDB's famous Top 250, but using the ratings data from Letterboxd users instead. A list that allowed for lesser-seen films to show up would be ideal but any such list would be a great addition in my opinion.

                  • Quick remove from list

                    I know this is possible from your watchlist, but it would also be nice to quickly edit any other list by removing movies from it in the same way.

                      • iOS app: URL schemes

                        Very excited about the iOS app being released today, but I'm sort of disappointed there is no URL scheme support. The ability to launch the Letterboxd app from another app or jump right to adding a specific film would be great for the many people who use launcher apps on iOS. But just in general it'd be a good move to allow other apps to interact more directly with your app.

                          • Make friends' ratings more accessible

                            Each movie page on the site shows a list of all friends who have watched that title, however if I want to see their ratings I have to hover over each of their icons individually. This is especially annoying when viewing the site on a mobile device where hovering isn't an option, forcing you to tap each user's icon to see their rating.

                            It would be much easier if those ratings from friends were always visible, similar to how it works in the iOS app.

                            • Further info on a few of the stats

                              Hello,

                              It would be nice to be able to look into my most watched stars/directors with some more detail (rather than just the top 5). This would also apply to the Most obscure film I've watched etc as I'd like to know what else is considered obscure. On this note, how is the obscurity calculated? Based on views?

                              Cheers,

                              Ben

                              • Adding links in comments should be simpler

                                It would be great if we could copy/paste links to other letterboxd pages in comments.

                                The other day I was commenting and need to post a link to one of my lists. I copy/pasted it and it didn't work. People tried helping with how to do this and it turned into a huge effort (see the results here: http://letterboxd.com/lise/list/sunday-mornings-with-coffee/#comment-16751 ).

                                If copy/paste can't be achieved for some reason, perhaps indicate the way to insert links at on the page footer where you have About, etc. by including something like:
                                To insert a link, type <a hred ...etc

                                  For "diary" view on the ios app, is there a way to add filters? Like only displaying films from 2015? Or 2014? I addition, is there a way to change the view? Like if I want to look at my 2016 diary but only at the posters and not at the calendar dates?

                                  • Expand Review Window

                                    Right now the window that pops up when you review a movie is tiny. You can expand the actual space your write in but that won't change the outer area and you're left having to awkwardly scroll around while writing your review. It makes writing anything more than a paragraph a bit annoying and you either have to deal with it or open up something like MS Word to type your review then copy/paste it over.

                                    It'd be nice to be able to increase the size of the outer window (blue area) so we can easily read/write our review.

                                      Precheck netflix movies before suggesting the user adds them, many are not available... and maybe even a vote demand so netflix see a want for the title... down the track.

                                          Thanks for the tip – we definitely want to support 1Password, since we use it ourselves. One of the developers has already reported this issue. It will be fixed soon.

                                          I would love to have an option to sort the films you have watched and rated by a single rating. I want to see only the films I've rated 1 star and only the films I've rated 5 stars. It would be a nice feature to add. Keep up the great work!
