User Rated Yearly Rankings
i think a more definitely ranked Top User-Rated Films of each year would be highly useful for finding essentials and adding them to your watchlist, and just for encouraging debate. i know this is sort of already done but it is also somewhat cluttered with films that have received high ratings due to a low amount of ratings, and also TV mini-series which can't be filtered.
i would also love if the films yearly ranking was shown on the film's page, like how rateyourmusic does with albums (ie, Children of Men being shown as the #1 top user rated film of 2006). i love that feature of that site and it always gets great conversations started.
please let me know if this is already done or i'm just being blind or something.
We do publish a top 50 rated each year on the crew account (along with genre lists, etc): https://letterboxd.com/crew/tag/year-in-review/lists/
Note that our average rating system is weighted like IMDb’s, to account for films with lower numbers of ratings.
Nice suggestion showing positions within a year.
