  1. Missing documentaries and mini series

    Hi I have found the following on TMDB which I think should be on Letterboxd.

    They appear to all meet your guidelines as TV specials or one offs and are not continuing series as such (ie.. made up of multiple seasons)

    If they could be added that would be great.

  2. Whenever a movie is merged or deleted on tmdb, the duplicate or adult title remains on letterboxd

    So when you come across a duplicate of a movie and ask for it to be merged on tmdb, the duplicate remains on letterboxd even after the merge, apparently some sort of glitch. This means certain duplicates and even adult titles are still around on letterboxd even though they have been removed from tmdb. One example would be Malliswari - https://letterboxd.com/film/malliswari/ and the duplicate - https://letterboxd.com/film/malliswari-the-princess - the latter has been merged on tmdb but remains on the letterboxd database.

  3. List by date added

    It would very beneficial to have a 'sort by' option be that you can swithc the order of the list by having the top be the last film added instead of the bottom.

    This would be useful for lists such as inventory lists of movies someone owns. Instead of having the last movie that was added to the list appear at the bottom by default, there would be an option to have the list make the last film added appear at the top if that is the newest film they saw, bought, etc.

  4. Sort Lists by Popularity While Editing

    I really enjoy all the new ways we can sort lists when creating/editing them.

    What I would LOVE would be the ability to sort lists by Film Popularity while creating/editing them.

  6. comments

    Users should be able to disable or delete comments on the reviews they made instead of blocking people. It's surprising it hasn't implemented yet. Definitely would help with the user experience.

  9. Compare with other users

    When someone follows me I inevitably go with the top 4 and most recent reviews, but it would be nice for there to be a compare feature where you could see if your movie taste overlaps and if you want to follow back this person

  10. "Hide" Reviewed Date

    Have the ability to "hide" or "remove" the date reviewed. Occasionally I'll go on "reviewing" sprees for old movies by adding in their stars, and I don't want a date showing up on those, because then it looks like I watched it that day.

  11. "More" option

    The "More" option in lists, such as the "Popular reviews" list in a film's page should be at the end of the list rather than at the beginning.
    That´s because the list is usually read from top to bottom and when tou get to the bottom, you have to move to the beginning tho select "More".

    Thank you

  12. Fix Unseen Films List

    I like the idea of showing highly rated/popular movies you missed, but it is not useful in its current form. Of the 8 movies it shows me for 2018, 4 are movies, 3 are concert films and 1 is a standup comedy special. For 2019, it shows several unreleased movies. If you can't/don't want to remove concert films/miniseries/standup specials, I'd rather these lists just show Most Popular Unseen Films or, even better, cross-index rating and popularity to weed out the obscure stuff that has its average rating inflated because only a few die-hard fans bother logging it. E.G. Taylor Swift's…

  14. Faster scrolling when dragging a movie up/down a list in desktop mode

    Make the scrolling speed faster when you move the cursor to the top of the list, please! I have a list with almost 200 films sorted newest first and it shouldn't be so tedious to drag one to the top.

    Here’s a tip until we can improve this: switch on list rankings, then click the ranking of the film at the end of the list, type a “1” then press Return. The film will shift to the top of the list. Repeat as you need to, then turn off rankings (if required) before saving your list.

  15. report on movies watched but not reviewed

    not sure this is a new idea, but I want to get a list of all my movies that I have listed as watched, but lack a review by me.

  16. check average rating calculation

    I found a film where the overall rating doesn't seem to reflect the histogram (Linda and Abilene, 1969). I calculated an average from the number of votes given in the histogram at 1.92, but the overall score is listed as 2.6.

    Not a big deal and clearly I have way too much time on my hands for both doing this and actually watching that film!

  18. Feature-Length/Short Categories on Profiles

    It might be a good idea to add "shorts" and "feature-length films" categories to the "genres" bar on users' "watched films" pages, so that they can view these types of films separately if they choose to do so. A miscellaneous category might also be a good addition, as there are many non-films (i.e. TV episodes, music videos) on Letterboxd.

    This would probably make it easier for users to keep track of the actual number of films they've watched, as opposed to everything they've watched regardless of the type of medium.

  19. Make activity filters (pro feature) universal and not tied down to the source you're logged in with.

    I'm not sure if the problem exists just on the website, but every time I log in on another computer, my activity filters reset and I have to set them up again.
