  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.

    • 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.

      • Suggest movies to friends

        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..."

        • How do I import notes from a previously exported list?

          When I export my Letterboxd Lists, the Notes I have entered appear in a field with the DESCRIPTION header. However, there does not seem to be a way to import those Notes into a new Letterboxd List. In other words, there is not a field in the Import Header template that seems to correspond to the DESCRIPTION (or Notes) field. Can you help?

          • add a way to clear your watchlist

            I have over 5,000 movies on my list and at this point I'd like to just clear it out altogether than go through it movie by movie

            • Integrate with Filmstruck as their rating and tracking engine!

              I love Letterboxd, and I love Filmstruck. Sadly, Filmstruck has no rating system nor way to track what I've watched. How cool would it be if your two organizations partnered up! It would bring visibility to Letterboxd and give Filmstruck a huge missing feature.

              Hopefully you're at least having coffee with the Filmstruck folks on occasion. :)

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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!

                      • Higher standard for "Top Rated Films"

                        I've noticed that finding good films to watch through sorting by highest rating has become difficult lately. A good example would be trying to sort by highest rating and narrowing the search to horror from the 2010s.

                        You will find that a bunch of the results are youtube videos, and the others only have 100 or so people who have even logged the film as watched.

                        Perhaps I'm wrong, but shouldn't there be a higher minimum for calling something "Top Rated"? Maybe like <1000 viewed or something like that? I use this site primarily for the ability to search for…

                          • Allow all or part of a Diary Entry to be private

                            As I add films to my diary, I would love to have a feature for private notes (instead of a public review). I know there's an option for private notes, but only if you additionally add the film to a list.
                            I think it would be handy for various reasons: to not forget ideas you had about a film without needing to write up a review right away, taking note of noteworthy scenes in a film for yourself so that you can remember it much later, etc.

                              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.

                                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!

                                  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!

                                    Long-time Filmtipset.se user, now migrated to Letterboxd. What I miss more than anything else is an advanced search option. I use this very frequently to set up different lists. For example, thrillers produced in France between 1960 and 1964, documentaries produced in Sweden between 1930 and 1945 or short films produced in the US between 2000 and 2015. You get my point.

                                      • Add Netflix Series Documentaries

                                        Even though some Netflix docs have multiple episodes they're still Documentaries and i'd really like to add them to my movies

                                        • 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…

                                            Let’s do this: can someone in this thread compile a list of “important/historically significant” adult films that should be on LB. Then we can see about adding an exceptions list to our importer that uses this list.
