  1. Add groups/clubs that users can join (and tag members when watching films together, etc)

    Enable users to create groups they can join, such as "Filmspotting fans," "365 Movies in 365 Days" or groups by location, etc. sort of like Facebook groups.

    • Follow/Subscribe to a List, Actor, Director, Studio or Tag

      Besides liking a list, I think it would be nice if you can follow a list. Some lists will change or grow over time and it would be nice if people get a notification in their activity of it when they choose to follow a list.

      • Private accounts

        I'd like the option if keeping my account private, like how Twitter handles private accounts.

          We’re thinking more about this now that our API is nearing.

          In the meantime, note that you can block any member from following you or posting comments on your content (look for the Flag icon on the member’s page).

        • Match users with similar taste

          Add a match button to every profile so you can check immediately if somebody has the same taste as you.

          You can use the like and/or rating of a movie to produce a list of similar movies/similar profile or a similar %.

          • Filter watchlist with multiple services at once

            Right now I have Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix. From my settings page, I want to be able to check off which services I have access to. Then I want to be able to filter my watchlist by all available services. Additionally, it would be helpful to display on which services a film is available on an individual film's page. This would help tremendously in figuring out which films I need to buy or rent vs which ones I can access from a streaming service.

              We’ll consider multiple filters at once. You can click the “More Services” link on a film’s page to open a panel that lists all the services the film is on according to GoWatchIt.com.

            • Integrate "Now Playing Near You!" notifications into Watchlist

              I watch tons of trailers, most of them several months in advance of the films' release. I file away the ones I want to see, but it's impossible to keep up with when and where every film hits theaters (if it hits theaters at all). So I would love it if Letterboxd could notify me when the films on my Watchlist are in theaters near me.

              • Weight list names higher when displaying search results.

                If I search 'HAWAIIAN' lists, no list contains the word HAWAIIAN in the title until page 3.

                • Share private lists with friends

                  I would love to share lists of my own film collection, but not with the entire world. Would it be possible to share private lists with friends only?

                  • Add Watchlist icon to poster overlay

                    If you put the icon next to 'watched' and 'favorite' it would save the extra clicking and hunting to see if i already have the item on my watchlist. Also, it would save the extra clicks of having to put the item on watchlist, which is a frequently used option, like 'watched' and 'favorite'.

                      • Add "My Rating" to the sort options in the main Films area.

                        I would live to be able to filter watched movies by year and my rating. Right now, I can filter all movies by year, but cannot sort by my own rating, only popularity and the like.

                        • Internal Notification System, rather than emails

                          I think some sort of internal notification system alerting you to when someone comments on or likes a review of yours would be much preferred to getting emails. This way I won't have to check my emails to review letterboxd activity.

                          Also, similar to this idea, allow me to follow my favorite people - meaning anytime one of my favorites logs another movie I am notified by the above mentioned system.

                            We’ve added an “Incoming” tab to the Activity stream that shows you all activity directly related to your account. We plan to add a notification status badge that ties into this.

                          • Arrange List By Your Own Rating

                            I have private lists of the movies watched during a specific year, and would love to be able to arrange them by my own star rating. The site already allows to arrange lists by all users' average rating, but it sure would be swell to be able to arrange by my own personal ratings. Thanks.

                            • Search within a member’s account or list

                              It would be extremely useful to be able to search for titles in certain lists, such as the top 250/other poll lists and 3rdrevelation's "youtube collection". Does this make sense?

                              • On a film page, show me if my friends have it in their Watchlist

                                The ability to see which of my friends have seen/logged a given film is great; I’d love to also be able to see which of my friends wants to see the film, and then we could arrange to see it together. Great opportunity to take the social aspect of Letterboxd off the internet and into the real world.

                                    • Add more statistics to Year In Review page, update more than once a year

                                      I am trying to make my film-watching as robust as possible. the more statistics i can see, the better. I set personal annual goals of number to watch, amount of special collections, foreign languages, etc. if I could see these on a rolling basis I'd have an idea of how far I'm leaning in any one direction (ie oh shit I've watched 70% comedies this year). Ideas include adding:

                                      -breakdown of languages watched
                                      -breakdown of award-winning or special collection (ie criterion) films watched
                                      -infographic of nations watched (ie a map showing the globe and 4 films made in Israel, 16…

                                      • Widget to show recently diary entry on blog sidebar

                                        I would like a widget I can put on my blog sidebar to show film (with poster image) I recently saw.
                                        I have tried put letterboxd RSS on blog sidebar, but It only has text and on show the entry with review.
                                        Thank you.

                                        • Sync my watched movies with Facebook.

                                          Allot of mt friends still don't have of want Letterboxd. (It's a shame). Facebook released a new movie section.

                                          Is it possible to push my watched movies to that facebook section?
