  1. Stats page for watchlist

    I think it would be cool to see breakdown of year / genre / directors on my watchlist.

  2. Clean background option

    Explains itself. It’s really annoying trying to read on a dark background, and specially if you plan to reais for hours. I’m really interested on making an account on the website, as he got all these nice features, but it doesn’t have the simple option to change theme to a clean one (white background black text). Please, letterboxd! Hear us.

  3. Filter lists by other lists

    Sort of to create the inside of a venn diagram between two lists, so I can see the overlap of one list in another list. (Lists have to be personal or liked to show up as filter option)

  4. Replace the GoWatchIt feature with a less US-centric service

    With JustWatch (just an example) you are able to search streaming services the world over rather than just the US, which the majority of your streaming filters seem to be geared towards. Is this something that would be possibly to implement?

  5. Option to like Cast, Crew and Studios

    the ability to like actor, director, etc. profiles on the site and have those likes appear on our profile likes page would be super awesome and handy. i think it's something to really consider!

  6. Create a search engine that can find common movies between multiple actors or crew

    I want to type in multiple actors and see what films they have been in together. Or see how many times a director collaborated with the same actor.

  7. Provide Better Sorting on Searches

    When using the search function, results seem to be all over the place.

    If I use a search term, and then select "Lists," it seems pretty random which lists come to the top. It would be great to sort by "Likes" or "Comments."

    If I select "Reviews," I would like to sort by "Likes" or Comments."

    "Actors" or "Directors" would be great to be able to sort alphabetically.

  8. Add a back arrow to the website,

    I use Letterboxd as a PWA on my PCs (https://imgur.com/eWlCAeJ), and there's no option to go to the previous page. It would be very useful to have something like for example the Spotify PWA (https://imgur.com/1DW3fJI)

  9. More info on personal film pages

    On my personal film/review pages, such as this:
    https://letterboxd.com/rotane/film/spider-man-homecoming/
    i would like to see more infos and links to other things, namely any of my lists that this movie appears in, plus reviews that i liked from other people (rather than my friends' ratings).

  10. Allow users to delete/edit comments as they please. And not for a short time, that seeems arbitrary. No reason to gatekeep a simple feature.

    Allow users to delete/edit comments as we please. And not for a short time, that seeems arbitrary. No reason to gatekeep a simple feature.

    Just add a note that a comment was removed or edited.

  11. Movie Memories

    I believe Letterboxd should show you which movie or movies you watched today, x years ago.

    Either on the homepage or some other place, maybe even in the diary itself.

    I know this has been suggested before but is now buried under many other requests and I thought it would be nice to suggest it again.

  12. TV Miniseries segregation

    I love that you have mini-series listed on here, as well as short-films. But perhaps have someway of segregating the two in terms of categories? Or perhaps include a mini-series tag to the show, to make it easier to find and log. I, myself, watch plenty of mini-series and while I love logging it into my diary, I wish it were easier to browse for more mini-series in the database, or to look up miniseries I've already watched in my watched "films" tab.

  13. diary memories

    im thinking like facebook memories or timehop it would be nice to have a function where you could see what you logged in your diary or wrote a review for a year ago, two years ago, etc. or even smaller time frames like a week, a month or six months ago. i really wanna know what i was watching last year etc but it’s not practical to scroll through my whole diary.

  14. Film in TMDb not showing up in Letterboxd

    I’ve been trying to add the following TV film to Letterboxd. It already appears in TMDb and all data seems to be the same as all of the other Sherlock TV films (which are on Letterboxd) but I can’t get it to import.

    https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/555827-sherlock-a-scandal-in-belgravia?language=en-US

    Please can you let me know what is wrong or missing?

  15. Hide popular/obscure films

    Add an option to hide films with more or less than 3000 ratings (as an example). This way you can find or filter out obscure films.

  16. display some technical specs on film pages

    Technical specs are displayed on IMBD but not on TMDB. Can this be done, either by pushing for implementation on TMDB or something else? I don't really care about sorting films by their specs (except runtime which already exists) but I'd like LB to show a few things like original aspect ratio, color, sound mix. Maybe even film format/digital format but that's complicated because lots of films use both or multiple formats.

  17. Private Messages between other users and groups.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we had an feature where all of the other users could interact with each other? Since we have the blocking feature I believe that we should also have an system that benefits from that.
    With private messages, instead of filling the comment section and notify every user who has participated/ commented in that review, users could message each other.

  18. make filmmaker accounts (with flair or verified badge) and allow a system for them to give early access to letterboxd members

    Filmmakers could either pick out members, or get suggested members who get to see previews, and in return give reviews and ratings before the film is released.

    Also with the filmmaker flair, they could respond to reviews and enter into conversation with users

  19. A live movie timeline

    When you start watching a movie you can say on letterboxd that you start watching a movie, the website knows the running time of the movie and will approximately follow the same time as your movie. Then your friends can see if you watching a movie and which time sequence they are.

  20. Film Critics

    It would be an amazing idea to add film critics to the website, much like Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. There would be the fan reviews and ratings, but, there would additionally be reviews on Letterboxd from professional film critics.
