I'm sure you guys already have this planned, but I'd like a mobile version / app so I can quickly add movies to my lists while on the go (eg. while at the cinemas!)
- add the movie you've just seen to your diary
- add the awesome movies you've just seen in the trailers to your watchlist
- etc...1,212 votes
We’re closing this as we’ve shipped our mobile site and iPhone app. There remains a separate suggestion for Android app which we’ll announce at a future date (https://letterboxd.uservoice.com/forums/136771-general/suggestions/12946575-android-app).
Since there is an App on Itunes, I think it would be a great idea to make one for Android. Not everyone has an Iphone, I simply prefer Androids. I love the interface which you displayed on the preview on the website, I hope this goes through soon!748 votes
Version 1.0 is in the Play Store now, with more to come!
The title says it all, yo. I've personally seen at least three people asking for a similar feature. Adding a button that would randomly choose a movie in your watchlist for you.
What you could do if you were feeling all kinds of fancy is even adding the ability of letting the user input a tag, to help you choose a movie in its watchlist.605 votes
There is now a “Shuffle” option on Watchlists (web only for now)!
It'd be fun to see a breakdown of time I'd spent watching films (inferred from running lengths). Perhaps by:
Though it might be unfortunately revealing: 120 hours watching 2 star films?232 votes
Pro and Patron accounts now have access to Year in Review pages for all years they’ve logged films for. We’ve also added filtering by decade, genre, rating, etc to various parts of the site.
Please add the watchlist to the data export.
Thank you!217 votes
This was added a while back, so closing off the request.
I don't like my username and password being sent unencrypted.214 votes
Browsing via SSL is mandatory for all visitors from today.
It'd be great to be able to select a person (maybe multiple persons) you follow and see if you have any of the same movies on your watchlist. A quick and easy way to help you pick a movie to go see/rent! :)158 votes
You can now compare Watchlists with other members by visiting their Watchlist and selecting the “In your Watchlist” filter from the eye menu.
Likewise, comparing watched/unwatched films is possible by visiting their films page and using the appropriate filters.
I understand that the pro thing is to make money and obviously you need money to run a site. But must you guys take stuff away that was already available to free users. Make the lists unlimited as well as watch lists. Add incentive if your going to do the pro thing but please don't take stuff away such as this.143 votes
We’ve removed the list limits on free accounts that were part of the initial announcement. Thanks everyone for your feedback.
Timeline Apps are different than just sharing something on Facebook (as was suggested here before). For more information about Timeline Apps and a list of current Timeline Apps see: https://www.facebook.com/about/timeline/apps
I'd love to see Letterboxd show up in that list!136 votes
You can now opt in to auto-publishing our activity to Facebook. Check our most recent blog post for details: http://news.letterboxd.com/post/66267277406/sharing
Would it be possible to further split or sort the activity stream?
I don't follow too many people, but even with "only" 30 active people the stream is exploding. If I don't check Letterboxd for a day, I have to "Load older activity" a bunch of times. With the site being relatively slow (at least from Germany) this can get quite nerve wrecking.
Suggestion: split activity stream into a few categories like
- rated/reviewed movies
- comments on movies
- comments on lists
Thanks and love the site! Keep it up!123 votes
This is now possible for Pro members. See our blog for the announcement last month.
I think Letterboxd should have it's own top 100 list based on the ratings of users much like the IMDB 250120 votes
We’ve added Average Rating to the sort options, so you can now view all films on the site ranked using this link: http://letterboxd.com/films/by/rating/
Comments can now be edited and deleted for a short time after posting.
It's absolutely asinine that something like this has been implemented. My watchlist can't expand any more, so I'll have to find somewhere else to start logging the films I need to see, and a cinematography list I've been working on has now had its growth indefinitely stunted thanks to this decision. It's an absurd policy that will only end up alienating your current userbase and turning away those who might be potentially interested in joining.94 votes
We’ve removed the list limits, thanks for everyone’s feedback.
At the moment, if somebody takes the notion to spam your reviews they can do so without consequences. It might be a good idea to block malicious or idiotic users from seeing your reviews/profile entirely.88 votes
Done! See our news post for details.
I know I've personally suggested this same feature in a different thread a while back ago, I can see there's others that have in the past too. I love your site and using your new app on Apple TV makes finding a good movie to watch that much easier. But you guys truly are using an alphabetical system that is incorrect and very frustrating. Films should not be bunched together just because they begin with an article. In my watchlist, "The Accountant" should come right after "Accepted," but because it has "the" in the title, it comes hundreds of titles later. I know big picture wise, this is a small gripe with an otherwise great system. But your fans and supporters have been asking for this fix for years now. Four years ago, you replied to a similar thread (http://feedback.letterboxd.com/forums/136771-general/suggestions/2546803-fixed-alphabetical-ordering) You said, "Fair call. We'll see how we can improve things from here." What's prevented you from following through? Please hear us out!

A, An and The are now ignored when sorting films and lists. Rejoice!
This is just long term thinking, but if users are trusting your website to store their viewing histories, it's probably essential to provide a way to export that data so we can back it up ourselves. It'd probably be hard to figure out, but exporting viewing history (date - title - rating - review maybe?) in a standard file format like .txt would be great.64 votes
This is now live on your Settings page.
The first thing you do when you sign up is add film and follow people. You could make it easier and quicker by being able to filter out the films both you and friends—or even lists—have both watched to only see what is unwatched by you.58 votes
Today we rolled out a small toggle switch on relevant pages to hide films you’ve marked as watched. Let us know how you find it.
For those of us in Europe (who are sick to death about hearing about Netflix :) )57 votes
I really wish there was a way to find which movies I have added, but have not rated... Maybe adding them to the bottom when you sort your movies by Rating?52 votes
Pleased to say there’s now an option to sort your Films page by rating, with unrated films sorted to the end of the list, so we OCD types can find out why our totals don’t match!
Update: you can now also filter your Diary and Ratings pages by “No rating”, which is even better.
Could also include other data such as which I've watched and when.49 votes
We have a new importer for Pro users, which imports data from a CSV file and can add films to your account (as well as to a list, like the original importer).
