Perform bulk actions (like mark watched or add to list) for all films in a page/list/collection/etc
For example currently trying to make a "Movies I saw in 2012" list and have to add each film seperately. Would like to be able to go into my movies and select multiple items at a time.
Adding all visible films on a page to a list is now available as a Pro feature on our website. The option shows in the sidebar or (on pages without a sidebar) it can be found in the disclosure arrow menu on the “+ Log” button.
@charlotte Our support team can change passwords in situtations like this, so if you feel you’re not getting the benefit of Pro otherwise, please drop us a line (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In terms of adding a large number of films, we have an importer that can consume a text file and turn it into watched films on your account. With Pro you can also add all visible films on a page to a list. Using these two functions together it would be possible to create a list, export it (in Settings) and then import it to your account with "mark as watched" enabled in the importer. It’s a little bit roundabout, but works.
More here on the importer: https://letterboxd.com/about/importing/
Otherwise it’s more or less a manual process to mark films watched as you see them around the site (a single click on the "eye" icon on a poster is enough to do it).
I am brand new to this app. I am a 54-year old movie buff. How do I add 1000's of movies I have seen in my life? I had to pay for the $19/year because it posted my Password as my username. The only way I could change it was to spend the extra fee.
I add a lot of movies to my watchlist but if we want to add all films from one director we have to add all one by one, and ther is no "like" or "add" for one director. we could have a list by director / or by actor that we can add

Make the ability to generate a list from a filtered diary, e.g. you van filter your diary down to just 2017 movies rates 3.5 stars or over and then make a list from that (instead of adding each film to a list manually)
There should be a “select/all” button so you have the option to select multiple movies at a time and list them as watched/watchlist etc. it would be a lot easier than selecting each one individually.
@John I’ll amend this to under consideration. We can see the benefit of marking a collection as watched (but this still only represents a small number of films, as most don’t belong to a collection at all).

Sad to see this declined. I am new to Letterboxd and I would like an easier way to add all the movies I've seen (or wish to see) rather than one at a time.

The website need to have mark watched list to a complete list not needing to mark watch individual films in a list.
especially for series. Like for Harry Potter, I'd have to search for it 8 times and add each film individually. There should be a way to select all and add all 8 at the same time.
