  2. What about having a "I own this movie as DVD or BD"-button? I would like to create a list of my giant movie-collection and letterboxd could be the perfect plattform for this project.

    We’ve changed our mind on this…

    Paid members can now tag a list with “own” or “owned” and we add filters for “Show films I own” and “Hide films I own” alongside our other filters. More to come on this, to make it even more flexible.

  3. Given two (or more?) letterboxd lists, the script compare the titles and finds the ones that are present in both of them.
    All kind of lists: user films, watchlists, directors fimogarphies.
    It would be amazing to filter out unwanted movies from some big and confusional lists, and get into a very very specific mood!

    Examples:
    Compare "Anxiety-Inducing Cinema" list with "romantic movies that don’t suck" list to find out some weird stuff.

    Or "for when you don‘t have too much time but you still want to enjoy a good movie" list with the "seen titles" list from my fave pal,…

  4. Delete an entire tag as you would a list. Some tags I have are out dated, or I thought of a better name for the tag, or I simply no longer want to see it with my tags. I know we can delete the tag from the review, but can we delete the tag itself?

  5. Wouldn't it be nice if we had an feature where all of the other users could interact with each other? Since we have the blocking feature I believe that we should also have an system that benefits from that.
    With private messages, instead of filling the comment section and notify every user who has participated/ commented in that review, users could message each other.

  6. For example, if I perform a search for "underrated", then filter by Lists, I would like to be able to order the results to have (say) the most popular results come at the top. This would be a very useful function.

  7. I think it be great if you guys made it possible to save drafts of reviews. I find myself starting a review but not having time to finish it or wanting more time with it and then saving it to my computer else where. It be a lot easier if you could just save a draft on letterboxd and then come back later and finish the review.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. I don't think you should be deleted user's comments when they delete/deactivate their account. When the comments are deleted/removed it makes all the comment threads illegible and all messed up because people are responding to a comment that no longer exists.

  11. 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…

  12. Manually adding each film in a list can be exhausting (especially if there are more than 500 movies in it) and there should be an option to click one button to add all movies in that list to your watchlist.

  13. 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…

  14. Too many people now like hundreds of reviews a day, never reading them, which ruins activity feeds. The aim seems to be to get as high as possible on the 'popular posters' page.

    There should be more value given to likes received rather than those given as it encourages interaction and content.

    Maybe the current set-up benefits the SEO of Letterboxd right now because you are getting more clicks etc with this system, I'm not sure. It's just a shame that you have to keep unfollowing people who clog up your activity feed with page after page of likes.

    Liking other members’ reviews does not increase one’s popularity on the site, as likes given are not considered in those calculations.

    Pro members are also able to filter out likes from their activity feed, if these are a problem.

  15. Hello, I have noticed that in TMDB there is an entry for Hermanos y Detectives, an Argentine miniseries from 2006 (not to be confused with the spanish series with the same name), but it is not in the Letterboxd catalog, something that should be corrected since it meets all the conditions to be added to Letterboxd. This has only one season and is not classified as a series, so it should be uploaded. I attach the link to the entry in TMDB:

  17. Links to letterboxd pages open in a browser, with no option to force it to open in app. It defeats the purpose of sharing reviews or movie pages when you can't open it in the app where you're already signed in.

  19. 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.

  20. While it is already commendable that a search for the original movie title will show the correct movie, this can be expanded upon: Integrate all the various titles of movies in the different languages or countries.
    I personally have no problem using this english website, but for many movies, regardless of if I watched them on TV or in cinemas, I only know the title in my natural tongue. And often enough this translated title is not directly connected or even translated from the original title. I surmise this to be the case in other languages, too.
    To prevent the…
