  1. Improve GoWatchIt matching algorithm

    There are a number of titles that letterboxd gets wrong when using the gowatchit service filter option. For instance, navigating to the "Okja" page and clicking "More services" under the "Watch" banner, the page from gowatchit lists the title as "Oka!" which is an entirely different movie. This explains why "Okja" does not show up on the Netflix service filter in letterboxd, even though it is a Netflix original.

    Those names are similar enough, but it also makes some nonsensical errors - "The Human Surge" links to a movie called "The Lovers and the Despot". There are many more examples.

      Thanks for these examples Scott. We’ll try to improve the matching algorithm we use to locate GWI titles. Please feel free to use the Report function on any other films you spot with bad matches.

    • Random Movie Button

      I am sure you have had this asked for plenty but here goes!

      As I have been adding movies to my watch list, I realise as the list grows I am less and less likely to watch the ones that I added earliest, as I would have to scroll all the way down.

      My simple idea is to have a button that will cycle through your watch list and pick a random movie - for when I am looking for a movie to watch!

      Could also possibly do the same for the site as a whole and it’s entire database…

          • Find reviews for a film based on star rating

            Would it be possible to filter film reviews by star rating? It can be quite laborious trying to find reviews that are generally positive or negative etc, with even more sorting and scrolling required to find anything in the middle. I feel certain reviews can often get a bit lost in the mix.

              Our iOS and Android apps support a “Rated in range” filter, so you can see all 3-star reviews for a film, or all reviews that are between 2 and 4 stars, for example. This is not yet available on our website (one of the few situations where our apps are more fully featured)!

              I've had nothing but issues with it since I signed up yesterday. It keeps failing. I like the design. If it doesn't keep giving me errors, I would pay for a subscription.

              • Lists intersection

                I have my watchlist, my friend has their watchlist, I like that friend, if I could intersect our two watchlists, I can see what movie we could watch together!

                Would also be awesome for other lists (like which of 1001 movies you have to see before you die are on New Yorker Best 100 movies of all time? Which Nostalgia Critic-reviewed movies were also covered in the How Did This Get Made podcast?)

                You guys love lists. We love lists too! Give us the option to intersect our lists :D

                  You can intersect watchlists already. Visit their watchlist, then change the Visibility (“eye”) menu to either hide films you’ve seen, or show only what’s also in your watchlist.

                • Movies by Country?

                  The site is great but when you browse all the movies you can filter them by year and genre but not country, which makes researches much longer, at least for me...

                    You can browse by country from a film’s page. This is sub-optimal as you need to find a film from the country you’re interested in, in order to find more from that country. We plan to add a list of all countries and languages.

                  • wordpress widget

                    I have a film and book review blog, would love to have a widget on my sidebar that links to my LetterBoxD account so my readers can follow me on here, and maybe see what scores I have given films I have watched recently.

                    I noticed some older questions from a few years ago, that talked about plans being in the works for widgets, but I can't find any information on currently available ones.

                    Do these widgets exist, please?

                      We have a widget for a single film which we can set up for your site, it shows LB’s ratings chart for the film, not your specific rating though (unless the visitor to your site follows you).

                      Email help@letterboxd.com if you’d like this set up for your site (it’s by request only, for now).

                    • Ability to group lists

                      I was thinking it would be a cool idea if you group all of your lists together in categories or groups for example I have a list for every year of movies that I have seen I would like to put all of those in one group and be able to alphabetize them by name of list for quicker access and then I have a few more lists that are awards winners in different types of awards ?I would like to be able to put them all in a separate group for easy access and so on and so on

                        We recommend using tags to group lists. On your Lists page you’ll see a list of commonly-used tags, which act like folders and enable you to access subsets of your lists.

                      • Better search functionality (typeahead / autocomplete)

                        Search really needs to have type ahead. It's 2018... use type ahead or auto complete or whatever you want to call it.

                            • 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…
