I suggest you ...

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.

        I would love to follow actors and directors as well. Whenever I am on a film site I would like to see the actor and or the director's name highlighted or checked that I am following. This makes the site even more comprehensive and user friendly. Your site is awesome. This feature would put it over the top for me. The site ENTORA has done a great job of that but I think your site is even better and more comprehensive.

        it would be great to be able to flag or like actors and directors whose filmography you are interested in so that you can look through them at a later date without having to add all of their films to your watchlist

        Me2, would very much love the feature to follow an actor, director, etc.

        it's shocking no movie site has that feature, would really set letterboxd apart from the rest

        It would be much nicer if I can follow directors and filmmakers alike for when their works come out. Goodreads has this function and it is one of the thing I like about their site, would love to see it on here too. Love the site so far.

        It would be awesome to get notifications when a director, actor, or writer you follow releases a new film. I've had the experience where a director I admire has released a film and I wasn't even aware.

        I definitely want to be able to follow/like actors and directors! I think the feature showing the percentage of a person's films that you have watched is really cool and useful, as there are many actors and directors whose filmography I would like to watch. It would be awesome to be able to easily access a list of all the filmographies I'm working on.

        It would be really great to have this feature. Are there any plans to implement this in the near future?

      • MarcusMarcus commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I think it would be good to allow liking of cast & crew.
        Some people, myself included, have favourite actors, directors, etc. I think it would be good to allow liking of cast & crew, making lists involving them, and even displaying favourites on your profile if desired.

        Director pages need a Like / Follow / Add to watchlist / Find similar / etc. box like the one on individual film pages

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        keeping up to date with number of favourite people's future activities has never been easy, this will be a huge improvement

      • alittlelostalittlelost commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would love this. There's quite a few people whose work I love staying on top of (in fact I love going back to their page to see the total percentage of movies watched), and this would make it SO much easier.

        Please make this happen. I really want to be able to like or create lists of favorite actors, directors, etc.

      • bambibambi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I really think this would be a great feature. On the 'Likes' section there should be a part for people too. This would allow you to keep track of your favourite crew or cast, and it would definitely give another dimension to the already brilliant site. Letterboxd please do this!!

        Could you add the ability for a user to subscribe or follow a tag? For example, if I want to follow new reviews or lists that involve "soviet montage", or a challenge like "december project", it would be great to get stuff in my activity feed that involves these topics without being limited to just the users I follow.

        So if I want to follow reviews concerning "soviet montage", there will be some type of button or somewhere I can type in that tag, and once I do that I will start to have reviews and lists tagged with that show up in my activity feed. Of course, to avoid clutter (such as if I was following "december project" and wanted to avoid having 100s of reviews in my feed), their would need to be an able to toggle on/off viewing followed tags (or something else that would curb this issue, such as a separate activity stream).

        Hopefully this is something that users will be interested in!

        Great idea, I wholeheartedly agree! Letterboxd, please make this happen!

        It would be great to be able to like actors and directors and other crew the same way that we can like movies and lists, and have them appear on our profiles / likes pages. It would add another dimension into how we relate to other users, being able to compare liked people. For example, i might want to follow users who also like Natalie Portman and Paul Thomas Anderson. It would also be great discussion starters (:
