Search is too slow
Search needs an improvement. Sometimes I search for a film and after waiting for a long time, I get a "currently unavailable" error.
Search is being upgraded later today. You should get quicker reponses and fewer/no timesouts.
I have always found Letterboxd extremely slow to load, searches included. Generally after I've been using it for a bit it's much quicker--I'm sure as a result of resources being cached. Just now I searched "fantastic beasts and where to find them" and it took ~20 seconds (Pacific Time). This was just after logging in.

I can say Letterboxd is pretty slow even now. When I'm logging in, I need to wait an eternity to log in.
I often get a 'Service Unavailable' message when I'm trying to search for films of a particular genre, say 'comedy' or 'thriller'. Is that intentional, or is it a bug?
If this happens in future, please reply here with the exact search phrase and approximate time (plus timezone) that you performed the search. Thanks.
