  1. Better syncing with posters from TMBd

    Too often Letterboxd doesn't reflect what's currently the default poster (highest rated and in English) on TMBd. Despite that changes happen to posters on TMBd, it more often than not doesn't get reflected on Letterboxd.

    We have different poster rules from TMDb, so we prefer to lock posters once films gain a level of popularity, to ensure long-term consistency.

    We prefer original theatrical posters over DVD covers, which often get upvoted over there. If there is a theatrical release poster on TMDb that’s better than our one, we’ll often change it: please use the Report facility on the film and let us know.

  2. Include TMDB ID in Export Data

    Including a TMDB ID field in the CSV would be most welcomed :)

  3. add ability to reply to comments?

    Not sure if you want threaded comments, exactly. But it seems off to not be able to reply to one person, rather than just add to the thread.

  4. Search your watched films

    The Watched Films page doesn't have a search box...and I wish it did. It would make it awesome.

    I want to be able to go to my watched films page and type in, "genre:horror" and see a list of all the horror films I've seen, so I can actually answer the question, "what's the best horror movie you've ever seen?"

    I want to be able to type in, "of the dead" and see all the films I've seen that have "of the dead" in their title.

    I want to be able to type in "year:1959" to find out what movies…

  5. Setting to hide film ratings before watching them

    If you have not seen a film, some people like to read synopses or a light review or two without seeing the average ratings on the film's main page. Having a setting which hides a film's ratings if you have not seen them would do well to provide a very pure and uninhibited opinion upon watching the film. Shouldnt be too difficult the encorporate.

  6. Don't allow users to rate/add to "watched" movies that haven't even come out yet.

    Movies like the 2017 Star Wars one. No one on Letterboxd has seen it, it's not even finished, they are filming it now and it's just annoying with people marking it as "watched" and giving out high grades to it.

  7. Advanced search

    Long-time Filmtipset.se user, now migrated to Letterboxd. What I miss more than anything else is an advanced search option. I use this very frequently to set up different lists. For example, thrillers produced in France between 1960 and 1964, documentaries produced in Sweden between 1930 and 1945 or short films produced in the US between 2000 and 2015. You get my point.

  8. Have "Year in Review" show top 5 or 10 watched actors directors

    ...like the overall Letterboxd site one does, instead of just the #1.

  9. Localize the site and apps

    Localize the site, and apps, in multiple languages.

    Possibly with the support of the users, I would recommend this website: https://www.transifex.com/

  10. add filters for "seen" or "on watchlist" on lists

    I made a list based on a series of reviews on AVclub.com. Some of these films I have already seen and some are on my watchlist. It would be nice to have the option to show only those that I haven't seen yet or am not yet planning to watch

  11. Release Dates

    I would like to see the release dates for films added. It's a simple feature and one that I am suprised isn't already available. Please add, it would be much simpler than having to look it up on Google.

  12. Team members/volunteers who can update info?

    Have you thought about implementing a special group of users that can instantly update or referesh movie data? like maybe a small group of long-time/trusted users who want to volunteer for it? I know anyone can update the information but that is the problem... every now and then a smart ass will purposely mess up the a description with "suck my d***" or something and it can take up to a day for the corrections on tmdb to roll over. It would be nice if there were a few people who could look out for this sort of stuff and…

  13. connect with GetGlue

    It would be nice if you could connect with GetGlue. If you check in to a movie, it is automatically posted as seen on your profile.

  14. Personal comment/note field for your movies

    I noticed that i sometimes would like to add a personal comment to a movie that i have watched. Not a review, but a short note or something like that. I would be perfect if you could select if you want the comment/note to be public or not

  17. Include Markdown support

    Hi,

    It would be amazing if you included Markdown support alongside HTML for any text fields.

  18. Delete all ratings...

    Is there any feature to delete all my ratings for 1000+ films all at once. I don't want to do the tedious job of going through each movie page and doing it for individual movie. Thanks.

  19. Lock rating

    I think you guys should lock the ratings of movies before release. Some people are rating movies based on trailers in imdb they lock theirs. Just look at starwars 7 people are marking it as watched and even rating it 5 stars. Please lock the watched and rating option please.

  20. I would love to see a message board format to replace imdb. Your site has a great look and could easily steal all the users a way from them.

    Message board format for your comments section. You could easily steal all of imdb users in the next few weeks with a change to the comments section. We all need a place to go and read about others idea and share our own. I use imdb multiple times a day just for their message boards.
