If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. implement filtering on (personal) lists

    The existing tags should help a lot. In personal and perhaps sometimes elaborated list it can be useful to filter, westerns action movies, all clint eastwood related stuff etc... The available standard tags should go a long way all ready....

    • Add additional commenting functionality

      1. You have the list of what HTML is supported when you're adding comments...why not make clicking on one of them insert the necessary HTML element into your post so users need not write it themselves?

      2. Add ability preview and edit comments for up to 10 minutes after posting.

      • 'Service Unavailable' message

        I find that when searching for certain specific terms, such as genres ('thriller', 'comedy') or names of months ('august', 'june') I often get a message saying "The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

        This happens even when the search term corresponds with the title of a movie. Is this a bug?

        • show followers ratings

          When you are on a film page, you can see "Your friends who have watched [title of movie]". That opens the list of friends with a few columns including the heart. I would love to see their ratings here, as well as a link to their review of this film if they have one. Here is why it is important to have this information here.

          The natural flow is to see that someone reviewed or rated a film you haven't seen. You may read their review, and then take a look at the film page. Now you are interested in…

          • personalize the rating system

            I don't know if this fits the philosophy of letterboxd's rating system, but I think there will be an average overall still:

            How about adding a feature to everybody's profile page (maybe with none or default settings if the user chooses to not change it) that enables you to personalize how you value the star rating with individual, editable expressions.
            I think that some users rate movies more severely or more mildly than others. The personalized rating description would make it more easy and fun to classify a certain user's rating.

            Let me be clear that this would be a…

                • Duplicates

                  I have noticed a lot of duplicates as of late. I have used the flag icon to flag them as duplicates but these have not been taken care of as of yet. These films include:

                  Family Guy: Blue Harvest
                  Family Guy: Something Something Something Dark Side
                  Family Guy: It's a Trap
                  Pro-Life

                  I was wondering how come the Flag button didn't work. Have you just not gotten to it yet? I submitted them several days ago.

                  • More variable filtering by release date

                    I'd like to filter lists by the years(!) of it's release dates. For instance I want only the films after 2000. Useful would be a slider with 2 knobs. One for the first year I want to see and one for the last year. Also It would be pretty annoying to adjust those precisely by hand so they need an input field to put the exact year in. I don't know how your website works but I think It wouldn't be to much afford but a great tool

                    • User-generated community tags, similar to Steam

                      http://store.steampowered.com/tag/

                      On film pages, users would be able to apply tags that are appropriate or relevant to a film (such as "female director" or "coming of age").

                      Tags that are applied frequently become featured categories, helping everyone discover new films through a new set of themes and attributes defined by the community.

                        You can already view all films from the community for a tag. Click the tag on any review, then find the author’s username in the row of filters and change that to “Everyone”.

                      • give a way to note why film is on watch list

                        "I want to watch a film" is not a boolean. The 'why' is important. Did a friend recommend it? Did it get good reviews? Does it have that actor I'm stalking in it?.

                        • Option to display Stars in lists

                          I'd like the option to choose whether or not to display my "star rating" for each film in a list that I create.

                          For example, in creating a "best of 2012" ranked list I think it'd be nice for others to not only see which film is 1st, 2nd, 3rd, last, etc. but also see my "star rating" without having to click on each film. I'm thinking you could just add the stars between the film card and the number that sits underneath it (or just underneath the card if the list doesn't use numbers/rankings)

                            • Rushes email issues

                              The periodic "Rushes" email is long enough that gmail clips it and you have to open it in its own tab to see the whole thing. I suspect a significant portion of your users are on gmail so it wouldn't hurt to keep the email within their limits.

                              Also, the rushes email shows "recent" reviews from my friends. But my friends seldom write reviews so it shows me the same three reviews from my same three friends every single week. I'd prefer you just say "your friends haven't posted any reviews lately" than have to see those again.

                              • add posters to the autocomplete search suggestions

                                It would make it much quicker to find the film you want if the autocomplete results had the poster next to them. You wouldn't need to rely on just the date.

                                • Have a 'minimum view' toggle for highest rated stars / crew on stats page

                                  It would be good to have a toggle to 'only show people who I've seen at least X times' (I'd suggest X is 2 or 3 by default, but it could even be adjustable) on 'highest rated' stats.

                                  Lots of my top stats include that one 4.5-star cinematographer/composer/producer/actor who I've only seen once, in that one 4.5-star film - pushing down the list someone who I've seen 10 times and averages an impressive 3.9.

                                  • Display lists by popularity

                                    It's quite a slog to look through pages and pages of lists using a term as broad as "noir" to find some sort of definitive guide to it, so perhaps allowing users to display searched for lists, actors and directors by popularity would help to ease this.

                                    • Slow to bring across TMDB entries

                                      I'm sorry but I can't find anywhere else to post this.

                                      I added the following to TMDB

                                      https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/362360-one-pair-of-eyes

                                      https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/362361-marty-feldman-what-do-i-spy-with-my-little-eye

                                      On the 3rd of this month (5 days ago)

                                      And this

                                      https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/362122-the-cellar-and-the-almond-tree

                                      On the 30th of last month, which is now a week ago.

                                      None of these have materialised on Letterboxd as yet.

                                        Hi, what's the deal with backdrops? I noticed some lovely ones on TMDB that haven't appeared on LB such as;

                                        If these are suitable for transfer, could they be added please?

                                        • "Next on the list" button

                                          hey so you are a guy on a film marathon of a list, wouldn't be good if you click a movie on that list and there is a button somewhere on the screen saying "next on the list", and if you click it it will redirect you to the next movie on the list.
