  1. Printer-friendly watchlist

    I would like to be able to take my watchlist to the video store. Is there a way that you could create an import feature so the watchlist could be made into a list (without images) for printing in Word.

  2. Make the year a film came out stable.

    Is there a way to keep the years films were released stable? Every other time I come on Letterboxd there's a movie from another decade that's now listed as having a '2013' release date. Why?

  3. Background Images on Profiles

    There should be an image on the background of everyone's profile of their favorite film, similar to the images in each Pro/Patron's Year in Review page or on the pages for the individual films.

  4. Add Flickchart feature to compare movies.

    It would be amazing to be able to compare all your seen movies to get the best ranking ever as it works in Flickchart.

  5. Find/recommend a film that a group has not seen.

    Since letterboxd tracks who has seen what movie, it may be possible to use this data for suggesting a new movie that a group of users have not yet seen. This would be helpful when deciding on a film in a group.
    Additionally one could choose to see a movie that a member has rated high but not seen in a long time and that others haven't seen yet. Or pick a movie that the group agrees on is awesome and watch it together.
    This might motivate users to keep their diary up to date, as well. :)

  7. Add watchlist actions to Activity tab

    It would be nice to keep track of a friend's watchlist, if he added a new film for example. This way, I could discover new films as well!

  8. Update activity streams to show reviews added to old entries

    If you log a film and specify the date that you watched the film but don't fill in a review at the time, then at some later date go back through older diary entries and add a review, the activity stream doesn't notify followers that you have added a review to an older entry.

    It would be useful to have the "All activity" stream contain an entry along the lines of

    "User Name add a review to their own entry of Old Film ............ 14 hours ago"

    We do show reviews added to diary entries but there are some rules around this to try to prevent spamming the activity feed.

    If the diary entry was created with a viewing date in the last 2 weeks, we show a review when it gets added. If the entry is for older than two weeks ago, then we show a review if its added more than 2 weeks later.

    If you add a diary entry and review at the same time for a date more than two weeks ago, we don’t show that. We have some feed changes in the works, so some of these exact timings may change a bit to be less aggressive.

  9. Why do we need the ability to clone lists?

    My lists are really long: certain themes, festivals etc. I painstakingly add a lot of new and unknown flicks on TMDB. Having someone clone such a list kinda sucks. Maybe the ability to turn cloning off for certain lists would be an idea?

    Any cloned list gives attribution to the original source list. We added this feature principally to prevent everyone that wants to rank Spielberg’s films from having to make the same list from scratch. We’ll consider allowing it to be disabled.

  10. Improve import of IMDB ratings

    I am just importing my IMDB ratings.csv file. Seems to generally work well, however the import for 1500 movies is taking ages; actually, 6 second per rating to call the API and create a movie picture thumbnail. I cannot save the import before all thumbnails are fetched. This should be streamlined, the process is currently already taking 2 hours (by this speed it will take a total of 5 hours of my browser nailing your site...).

  11. Make it possible to view all recent reviews and to filter them by genre

    There is "popular reviews this week" and you can sort them by popularity over different time frames, but it's always the same few reviewers at the top and it makes it impossible to find new people.

    I want to be able to check out all recent reviews. The "just reviewed" feature doesn't cut it because there's only a few displayed and no option to see more and no filter. Plus they don't even get an overview.

    I suggested you make it possible to sort all reviews by any criteria we want. For instance, if I want to see the most…

  12. Show film's overall position based on the top 250 films

    Similar to the IMDB, which shows a film's position in the top rated movies list.

    For The Godfather, IMDB shows: Top Rated Movies #2.

  14. Allow Sherlock episodes

    The Emmys and Golden Globes consider them to be made-for-television movies which, by my understanding, should be allowed.

  15. Different color to see our personal rating

    First of all, i'm sorry for my bad english ! I'm a french user and I would like to share an idea, it could be useful I think ^^
    On the IOS app, If I want to see my rating for a movie, I have to click on the "...". It's not that long, but I think it would be more useful if our personal rating was visible directly on the front page, like in the user's average rating, do you know what I mean ? Maybe a different color for our personal rating, or maybe a brighter star.
    DIfferent…

  16. add the possibility to export movies in calendar

    What I mean is that when I add a movie to the watchlist and that movie hasn't come out in theatres yet, I'd like a feature that asks me if I want to add the movie release date to my calendar (the Google one in my case) so that when the day comes I get a reminder.

  17. better compariosns

    Loving the site in general but I find what I really like doing is seeing how my friends have rated films. You can do this but it's about 3 click from each film's page. I think on the right side bar where you have "watched By" you should maybe rather than just show the avataar of the people who's veen it to show 5 people, friends as priority and their ratings. Then have a "More" button to see all your friends's ratings or everyone's ratings.

    I'd also like to be able to have at a glance ratings comparisons for actors…

    Some good stuff here. We’ve toyed with inline ratings for friends on film pages, but haven’t hit on a layout which works but doesn’t busy up the page any more than it is already.

    We plan to make the Diary-style layout an option for more pages (such as actors/directors) which will help with your second point.

  19. Importing IMDB lists

    Hi, i just tried to import a massive IMDB list i just exported from there, and it hangs (gives an error then it stops parsing the data) on some titles (marked as TV series in the exported .csv).
    I deleted the offending lines on the .csv file and now it hanged on the title "masters of science fiction")
    I suggest the script to ignore the titles which can not be parsed for various reasons instead of hanging the whole import operation.
    That would be awesome.
    Amazing website by the way.

  20. Recent Reviews Not Updating

    Not sure if this is related to the code you uploaded the past few days, but since yesterday Recent Reviews only loads periodically. If I write a review, it shows up on my profile and on my lists page, but it doesn't show up on the recent reviewed list...
