  1. Fix the bugs

    Adding a movie to my list just adds a blank bar at the bottom. Clicking on Edit just opens an empty dialogue box. Very dissapointing.

  2. Filter activity by user (e.g. real friends)

    When I upgraded to Pro I expected the Activity Filter to let me choose to see certain users' activity and filter out others. That would be great because I follow both professional critics who drown out the rest, and IRL (personal) friends who are less as active but sometimes I would like to see only their feed.

    This seems much more interesting a filter than what currently exists, hopefully it's easy to implement.

  3. add a feature to arrange lists by popularity

    I search for "westerns" and get two pages with lists with only one movie....
    I'm looking for the western-lists that's popular and has discussions. One should be able to arrange by popularity

  4. Better comment section/notifications

    This idea can be applied to any platform Letterboxd is used on, but the way comment sections are manged is very out of date and not user friendly. The only way to know about comments is through emails and that can leave one's inbox very cluttered. Rather than what we already have, maybe adopt a design similar to Instagram or YouTube where people can like comments and reply in subsections, and also implementing a notification tab where you can easily see who liked your review or started following you.

  5. Set up a "Film of the Week" livestream where users can sign in and watch a movie together

    I think Letterboxd should have a "Film of the Week" where every Friday or so at a scheduled time slot, a movie is screened live on the site and users can sign in to watch together in real time, similar to a YouTube livestream. There should also be a live chat so users can comment and discuss the movie while its playing. The livestream can only be accessed by users, thus encouraging people to sign up and build a sense of community. Admin can hold votes on which film to screen for that week so users can spread the word…

  7. Thumbnail View Option

    Under the "diary" tab of the "Films" section, it would be nice to have an option for small thumbnails, allowing one to see more movies on one page, as it is under the "watched" tab.

  8. fix the mobile site

    For the last few months the mobile site won't let me add a film that I've watched. It doesn't work through the button or through the films page. Whenever you click to add nothing happens, not even the old annoying pop up box.

  11. link different languages to the same movie.

    I don't want to have them in my Likelist in multiple languages, but I somehow have to, to do it right... Also, your statistics are useless, if people split on diefferent versions.

    The community could handle this, I think. I would volunteer! ;-)

    TMDb removes entries from its database that are in different languages. We cannot automatically merge these once they’re in our database, but we can do it manually. Please report any duplicate films to hello@letterboxd.com and we’ll manually merge them, retaining and moving all stats onto the correct, target film.

  12. Make tags more fluid

    Great site--very intricate, wonderful work. I'm wondering if tagging could be made a little more fluid, usable. (I'm kind of blendng/reworking a few previous suggestions I saw; excuse any repeats) Public info (real basic year, genre, etc.) able to be absorbed into your private film database, maybe in tags, so you could manage that stuff w/o painstakingly going back through and laying down new tags yourself.

    If laying down new tags were even possible. When I tried adding some this way, I saw something like 'In order to add tags, you must have DateWatched or a review'. I don't review…

    Thanks for your suggestions. One way you might be able to recreate some of what you mention here is to narrow down the main Films section by using the filters there, and then set the visibility to only show films you’ve seen. This would let you isolate films by decade, year and genre that you’ve seen.

  13. Give more detail in the 'add movie' instructions

    Just write it out step by step. I don't understand what you mean about using that URL format - where do you put that?

  14. Grades should be locked until the movie has been officially premiered.

    I think it is wrong if you can rate a film that has not been released. One example is TERMINATOR: DARK FATE. Here, people have already rated the film though it has not been premiered. Grades should be locked until the movie has been officially premiered.

  15. Add the ability to view tagged lists in diary order AND grid view simultaneously

    I like to view the movies I've marked with a particular tag in grid view, but I would like to be able to see them in grid view while also seeing them in the order in which I watched them. When I click on "Diary" to see them in my viewed order I am forced to view them in list form, rather than a grid.

  16. Please have a simple link that goes to your "Film Diary"

    The site is gorgeous but it's way too confusing! It took me two minutes to find out where my films were, but there are like 5 pages that have the same function. Please simplify Letterbox. The idea is great but too much!

  18. Better access and layout of film diary page and stats

    A calendar view or a tally of the number of films you have watched this month and year would be great.

  19. Focus search bar on double tap of search tab

    Hi, when searching for something it can be really uncomfortable having to reach all the way up to the search bar, just to go down to the keyboard again. Especially with phones getting bigger.
    I’d love to be able to double tap on the ‘Search’ tab on the bottom bar to put focus on the search bar, allowing me to stay in the keyboard area the whole time.
    The behavior would be:
    - Hit of ‘Search’ tab when not on Search Page: Open Search page
    - Hit of ‘Search’ tab when on Search Page: Put focus on the Search bar…
