Improve the performance of the site in general
I'm finding the site a little slow to navigate these days. It's not very slow but things can take a while to load once you've clicked on a link. I presume that will only get worse as traffic to the site increases.
We’re aware of this issue and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible. Part of it is architectural and requires us to re-structure how we calculate activity and popularity. Part of it is due to an issue in our caching framework which we are also working to fix.

Totally agree! Load times are very long with one or two seconds load time for the HTML only being normal, resulting in total page load times of over 5 seconds! I would like to stop using imdb (:p) but with regards to performance, on IMDB i can view about 3 movies while on Letterboxd i'd still be wating for the first movie.
