  1. Add more statistics to Year In Review page, update more than once a year

    I am trying to make my film-watching as robust as possible. the more statistics i can see, the better. I set personal annual goals of number to watch, amount of special collections, foreign languages, etc. if I could see these on a rolling basis I'd have an idea of how far I'm leaning in any one direction (ie oh shit I've watched 70% comedies this year). Ideas include adding:

    -breakdown of languages watched
    -breakdown of award-winning or special collection (ie criterion) films watched
    -infographic of nations watched (ie a map showing the globe and 4 films made in Israel, 16…

  2. Pin Reviews and Lists to your Profile

    Would love the option of pinning my work to my profile, so those visiting my page can see the reviews I'm most proud of. My most-liked reviews tend to be one or two sentence blurbs, but I'd prefer to display my longform stuff for potential followers. Might work like the pinned tweets function on Twitter.

  3. Notify me on who has unfollowed me?

    I find it incredibly frustrating when people will follow me just so that they can get a follow in return but then they'll unfollow you afterwards. all because it'll make them look more credible as a reviewer when they clearly never got those followers genuinely.

    my point is someone who follows 1000 people but also has 1000 followers looks more like someone who's clearly been liking random accounts for likes in return.

    Whereas someone with 1000 followers and only following 200 other people looks more like the established and genuine popular reviewers.

    So i would love to simply know who…

  4. Correct the “more services” feature

    The “more services” feature is great for telling you where you might be able to stream a film. But it is incorrect on so many occasions. For example, it says that Brawl in Cell Block 99 is streaming on showtime anytime. But this is false.

    It’s a great feature in theory if you can get it right.

  5. Easy way to fix posters

    So many movies have low quality posters, there needs to be an easier way for users to suggest a better poster. I also believe that the original art should be used and not some horrible photoshopped version which I see all the time. Editing out text from a poster messes up the design and makes most of them look awful because they are designed to have that text on there. I also think it is a bit of an insult to some of the amazing poster designers, especially when people mess up with iconic and classic posters by famous designers.…

    Letterboxd favours original poster releases over DVD covers and artwork from subsequent releases (in most cases). We also favour versions of original posters with credits reduced or removed — such credits do not fare well at the small sizes we display posters at, and we feel in most cases the simpler visual presentation works better.

    Unfortunately, due to the subjective nature of voting for posters, there isn’t an easy way to enable this to everyone’s satisfaction. But we’re happy for you to report the odd film using the flag icon in order to let us know if a superior poster exists on TMDb, notwithstanding the above caveats.

  6. Regional Netflix

    Hi guys. Sorry but I did not renew my Pro subscription. With Netflix blocking VPN and Proxy users, the Pro subscription adds absolutely zero value to any Non-US user.

    I do not need to import films anymore: I did that once when I joined and that was it. The only pro feature left for me to use was to filter my watchlist by Netflix Instant availability, which is hardly worth the subscription price anyway.

    Now, the feature is worthless, since I can't check the availability with my local (Brazil) Netflix catalogue.

    Please consider this, you guys might be losing a…

  9. Add the new Twin Peaks (2017) as a limited series

    Previously I wrote feedback concerning Paolo Sorrentino's The Young Pope (2016), and how it should be on Letterboxd as a limited series (miniseries) so long as the site was including such things.* [See link at the bottom.] I made a detailed argument about the identity of a miniseries and how the format should be considered. As my request was promptly fulfilled, my argument seemingly adopted, I'm unsure how much I need to repeat myself in regard to my latest request, about the 2017 limited series Twin Peaks.

    In much of Showtime's promotional material, the title Twin Peaks: The Return is…

    We’re working on a solution to allow us to continue to import mini series from TMDb even once they are moved to its TV section. Once this is ready, we’ll be better placed to make a call about the inclusion of this content.

  10. Make the development roadmap public

    Or find some other way to tell your users when certain features are coming.

    A company blog also goes a long way into giving users some insight in the development.

  11. Embedding lists/reviews on other sites.

    Not exactly sure how this might work, but somehow make it possible for me to embed my lists on a blog or Facebook or some other web site (complete with images).

    Each title could link back to Letterboxd.com.

  12. enable diary entries to be unspecified for day & month.

    I would love to add many back-entries to my diary. Usually, one does not know the exact date when one saw a movie in an earlier year. It's a great option to be able to add this, but these date infos shouldn't be mandatory.

    We have no plans to allow diary entries without a specified date, but you can still mark these films as watched by clicking the “eye” icon for the film. This adds the film to your list of watched films, and for Pro members, it will be considered for your all-time stats.

  13. Allow strikethrough text in reviews and comments

    Add the HTML <s> tag to the allowed tag list for review and comment content, or at least just reviews as they can be edited later to strike text.

  14. Arrange List By Your Own Rating

    I have private lists of the movies watched during a specific year, and would love to be able to arrange them by my own star rating. The site already allows to arrange lists by all users' average rating, but it sure would be swell to be able to arrange by my own personal ratings. Thanks.

  18. Toggle between "Grid View" and "List View" for pages other than Lists

    I would like to be able to view the Watchlist as text as opposed to just the current movie posters.

    While this problem could also be solved by the "Export Our Data to a Standard File Format" suggestion, I think this would nonetheless still be a nice addition to the Watchlist feature.

  19. Filter diary page by watches/rewatches

    I don't know if it's just me, but I wish I could just filter any diary page to show only first time watches, or only rewatches, the same way we do with ratings.

  20. Movie Posters

    Hi, I know this has been mentioned before but I'd really like to make a point about the movie posters.

    I read about the website's preference for simplified, cleaner versions, keeping only the name of the film and dropping all the remaining information that composes a movie poster. I was wondering why people keep uploading such versions at TMDB and, searching through this board, I found out that the reason is that these versions work better at smaller sizes.

    It may be a good point but it still bothers me so much because those simplified versions feel like a scar…

    We generally prefer original, theatrical posters (or simplifications thereof) over DVD covers, but we are a small team and we don’t review every film entry regularly to check this is the case—sometimes such a file isn’t available. (If it is, we may have chosen a Criterion cover because it was more immediately recognizable for the film.)

    We feel that cleaner versions of posters work better at the small sizes we often exhibit them at. We respect your right to disagree, but we don’t plan to change this approach.

    It’s possible we’ll one day allow Pro members to choose their preferred poster, but that’s not high on our priority list at present.
