  1. 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.

    • 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. :)

        • 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!

          • 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.

            • 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...).

              • 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…

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • Remove film from list through list and/or film page

                      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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  • Add page numbers to reviews when sorted.

                                    Or something that allows one to quickly jump to the other end. I often sort reviews by rating, and am usually most curious about the negative reviews. But currently there's no way to get to them except to keep hitting "next," which can be tedious for films with many reviews. A list of page numbers (1...2...3...12) would be helpful.

                                    • Sort Lists By Completed

                                      I think it would be awesome if (from the lists page of their dashboard) sort by completion percentage. In addition it would be helpful if under "Show" one of the selections was completed so that users don't see all the lists they have finished.

                                          Especially in germany not that many people are actually using twitter.
