If by accident I've rated a movie, next time I add the correct rating, all of the activity (either on my lists or on a friend feed) will not reflect the update. This is really annoying and has been on for ages. I'd hope it would be fixed by now with the new app.10 votes
Seeing this a lot of these at the moment. People using an upcoming film's page to review its trailer or to say something like "THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME EEEEEEEEEEK!" or some such thing.9 votes
This is tricky: there are legitimate ways in which you can see a film prior to its release date (previews, test screenings, festivals, etc). We have considered adding an arbitrary window prior to a film’s release date in which you can record a watch of the film, but we need to be careful as this can encourage users to alter release dates on TMDb in order to circumvent such a measure.
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.9 votes
We’d love to offer an advanced search of this type at some point, yes!
When making year-end lists, i often already have reviewed the films in the list earlier in the year using the diary entries. I wish there a way to link those diary entries to the list entries, instead of writing additional stuff in the Notes feature.9 votes
We don’t have an automated way to do this, but you can manually create links using HTML tags.
Can we get a way to sort reviews on the homepage based on most recent as opposed to just popular? I'd like to see different reviews from people as opposed to the same top reviewers with a massive friend list.9 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. At present the best way to see all recent reviews from friends is to use the Pro account setting in your Activity feed to only show reviews.
A link to launch the netflix streaming player (when available)... or buy from amazon or iTunes.
Monetize and make instantly watching the movie easy!9 votes
You can add to your Netflix instant queue right now, by authing with Netflix on the Edit Settings page. We plan to improve our Netflix handling so it knows availability ahead of time. iTunes links are in the action menu on a poster, Amazon coming soon!
I was thinking, correct me if I am mistaken, that an automatic import feature connect with the IMDb RSS would be nice. If it is allowed of course.
Something like this:
IMDb offer a RSS for movies you have rated. This feed has both the movie title and the rating included. What if there was a place in the Letterboxd user account where you could paste this IMDb RSS feed link, and it would automatically import the newest additions when?9 votes
Sounds good, we’ll take a look as a future enhancement.
Solve the problem of "What haven't you seen?"
Two friends wander the store but can never find something they both haven't seen. A list of films filtered as unwatched for two users could be sorted by popularity and save the day.
From this point it shouldn't be too hard to expand the formula to deal with the multiple roommate or group movie night problem. Trying to find a film that you and 5 of your friends haven't seen would wonderful!9 votes
The best option we have at this time is to visit the Watchlist of a friend and use the “Hide Watched” filter to only show films that you haven’t seen. Obviously this doesn’t work for multiple people!
I really like on the AppleTV version where on a films page it provides an iTunes link if it's available where if you click on it it opens the films page on iTunes for you to buy or play.
I really wish you had links for streaming services like that, where it would open the app and start playing the film. Even if it was just Netflix and Prime video.8 votes
We’re not able to do this on Apple TV until those apps publish a URL format that we can use to play specific content. We’d love to as well!
We have to see adverts if we pay $49 a year? :(8 votes
I was wondering if it was possible to show the last date you watched the film on its homepage?8 votes
The best we have now is that we show a link to your review (or activity if there is more than one diary entry). Click the “You have logged this [n times]” text in the right-hand panel to see this.
Allow Pro or Patron users to generate stats for their lists, like a summary of ratings, countries, actors, directors.
On the list view page for a single list, allow Pro or Patron members to generate a stats page similar to the pages generated for your diary entries.
Stats could include:
- Count of film years/decades
- Percent watched and in watchlist (you sort of have this already)
- Countries (with map)
- Ratings summary and averages
- Most / least popular, watched and highest / lowest rated
- Actors8 votes
On the iPhone app, when you're in carousel view, and you click into a movie, then click "back", it should return you to where you left off in the carousel. Right now, doing that returns you the general list page, and I have to re-enter the carousel and re-find my spot.8 votes
Is it possible to expand most watched categories to the full list? More than the top 20 stars, directors, etc. I would it to have a complete list of most watched stars, directors.8 votes
We’re looking into this. It’s expensive to compute, but we’d like to add it if we can!
Technical specs are displayed on IMBD but not on TMDB. Can this be done, either by pushing for implementation on TMDB or something else? I don't really care about sorting films by their specs (except runtime which already exists) but I'd like LB to show a few things like original aspect ratio, color, sound mix. Maybe even film format/digital format but that's complicated because lots of films use both or multiple formats.7 votes
We’d like to add these if TMDb does. That’s up to their schedule and priorities however.
When I rate a movie and give them like 3 1/2 stars and then decide to give it 4 stars my activity will show the 3 1/2 stars instead of the 4. So it would be nice if the rating will be automatically updated in the activity feed.7 votes
add a breakdown for each decade of films watched based on their release date7 votes
Since I started using Letterboxd, which dates for years now...I always found it frustrating that every time I'm on a new computer (or I formatted mine), I have to enter login details instead of just being able to save them using my browser (Firefox in my case) and sync them so I can just use the auto-fill capability of Firefox to get them ready.7 votes
Our sign in forms allow 1Password and Mac OS to auto-fill. Not sure why Firefox would be any different. Please try saving from this stand-alone sign-in form: (http://letterboxd.com/sign-in/) — you must be signed out first.
