  1. Recommendations

    I think "recommendation" will be a killer feature of the site, even if it doesn't approach the philosophy behind letterboxd (being a social site).
    Moreover now that you are at the beta stage, meaning fewer users, less probability of "friends", the recommendation of a movie based on my most liked movies or the highest rating, it'll be a great way of discovering new movies.
    I know that technically it will very challenging or maybe you have even think about it.

  2. Suggest/recommend a movie to a friend

    I imagine some kind of inbox or notification system where you can receive suggests from your friends. The film menu you see on mouse over can get an extra option "Suggest to friend..."

  3. Expand Block User

    Block user needs to block everything. I don't want to see said person's reviews or anything they have to add to the site. Certain people think this website is their personal blog.

  4. Collaborate on a list or watchlist

    Allow a list being 'open' which then users can follow a list and add films to it. This will result in much more list activity and complete film lists.

    Take for example http://letterboxd.com/pablos/list/special-powers/. I can easily add 10 more movies without any effort to make the list more complete.

    Optional: to demotivate abuse, submitted films must be allowed by the list owner before being added.

  5. Add Favorite Actors/Directors on Profile page

    The ability to list one's favorite films is great, especially when sharing preferences with friends; the opportunity to list favorite actors would be just as convenient. Adding a "favorite actors" category to a users profile page would be a fairly simple change that could really add a lot of personality to each account.

  6. Create lists of Cast, Crew and Studios

    I often find that I want to list things other than films. It would be great if I could create a list of, for example, the Best Directors. Or list my Favourite Japanese Actresses. Or make a list of popular Animation Studios.

  7. New System for Handling Films Marked as Adult

    Recently, a lot of sexploitation and other classic exploitation and cult films have been removed from Letterboxd because someone on TMDB has been marking them as Adult. I think that the process of importing titles needs to be rethought, because it is drastically affecting my abilities to keep track of my lists and reviews, and it really hurts to see titles disappear after I have put effort into writing reviews and managing lists.

    Something really needs to be done about this, because this has continued to be an issue since I first started using the site, and so far there…

  8. Select/detect language of reviews

    Most reviews are and will be written in English. But once public accessible this site will (hopefully) grow, so will the number of reviews and diversity of languages used to write these reviews. On a movie detail I can see 3 popular reviews in 3 different languages for example.

    Maybe an options where you can select in what language your review is written and an option (checkboxes) to select which languages you understand... and wan't to see.

  9. Achievements/Badges

    As with other "logging" sites badges would be nice. These badges add a bit of fun and competition to the movie watching experience. These could be badges about the content (Having watched all movies by Hitchcock, Having Watched Every Start Trek Movie...) about the amount (You have watched more then 100 movies this month, You have watched more than 1000 movies in total) or about the topic (Sci-Fi badge for watching at least 25 sci-fi movies and such things). I think it would be nice.

  10. Unlisted option for lists

    It would be great to be able to make a list that I could share with friends but not have public to all my followers. Like YouTube's "unlisted" setting on videos. Not public, not private, but sharable through links? Say, a list of films we plan to watch together that I wouldn't want on my page?

  11. Group lists in folders

    I have a lot of private lists for organizing my opinions for films as well as information for my YouTube channel and Instagram, and I keep having to search through my list longer than I thought. I would really like to see folders be visible, so that folders are visible in the lists section, while lists that can stay out of folders can be visible normally in the same section. Please take this into consideration!

  12. Compare Lists

    Would be great if we could cross two or more lists generating a new list (temporary or not) as a result.

    A greater possibility of films exploration.

    I'm always dying to explore better giant lists like Palm d'or Nominees to see how many films an director has in it. Or another example to intersect this previous list with Criterion collection etc etc.

    Note that you can already import one list into another (if you’re Pro, you can clone someone’s list and then—by removing everything above the column titles for film entries in the exported file the file—you can import this into another list). This provides a union of two lists, but not an intersection. We’ll have a think about list comparison for intersection.

  13. Popular Users

    Do we really need the Popular Users page? it just turns the site into a popularity contest.

  14. Don't delete user's comments when they delete their account

    I don't think you should be deleted user's comments when they delete/deactivate their account. When the comments are deleted/removed it makes all the comment threads illegible and all messed up because people are responding to a comment that no longer exists.

  15. Friends' average rating

    In addition to the Letterboxd's user average, have an average score of only your friends rating.

  16. Add MPAA Ratings!

    Perhaps there's a good reason for you NOT to include film ratings next to each film, but I feel like it's important enough information that it should be included at least somewhere. I have to exit the app to find out if the movie is rated R or not... a bit strange?

  17. Find an alternative to TMDb

    TMDb regularly gets in the way of my enjoyment of Letterboxd. My Watchlist is mostly made up of new releases. They’re added to my list when I see the trailer, which is usually in advance of their release. Nine times out of ten, TMDb doesn’t yet have the movie listed, which means I have to go through the somewhat laborious process of adding it myself, and then wait several hours for Letterboxd to be able to see it. (The same thing usually happens when I want to add a festival screening to my Film Diary.) Meanwhile, every piece of information…

    Thanks Rob, really value this feedback. The key reason for choosing TMDb over IMDb was cost. The former is free, the latter charges a five-figure sum annually for use of its data by other apps. We haven’t ruled out switching, but as a bootstrapped project it wasn’t something we could take on from the outset.

    As an aside, in the short term we plan to add a mechanism to allow instant import from TMDb by entering the ID of a new film. Until that happens feel free to drop a line to hello@letterboxd.com with any TMDb IDs you’d like imported and we’ll do them straight away. Not a perfect solution but hopefully might remove a little of the pain for you.

  18. Hide rewatched films in diary view

    When I'm on my diary, and I look through all the films I've watched this year, I wish that there was a way of hiding all films that I've rewatched this year. This would allow me to view all the films that I've watched for the first time this year. Shouldn't be too hard to implement, and would make all the difference. That way, people wouldn't have to make lists like this:
    http://letterboxd.com/ptabro/list/dear-diary-jun-2013/

    Hope to see this feature soon.

    This isn’t a high priority feature for us to add. But, if it’s important, you can use tags to achieve it. If you add a “first watch” tag to every applicable diary entry, you can then view your “first watch” tag in diary mode to see only these films.

  19. Stop ratings and reviews for unreleased movies

    As simple as that, open this settings only a couple days/weeks before the actual launch.

  20. Reorder films logged on the same day

    On the same day, I might watch film x and then film y, in that order. However, if I log film y first, the order in my diary will have them as y and then x, even though I watched x first. I think it would be a convenient feature to be able to reorganise the order of films logged under a given date in the diary view.

    For example, I have found evidence that I watched a film on a day in 2015 that I forgot to log at the time. There was another film I logged on that…
