  1. Lists - minimum amount of films

    A list with 3 films is a little bit of a waste of time...perhaps a minimum of 5 films upwards?

  2. Personal Ballots

    I tried to sway a few list-crazed cinephiles to join the site, but all of them preferred to stick with their Excel spreadsheets b/c Letterboxd doesn't allow them to create "personal ballots" for each year-- these include things like Best Actress, Best Cinematography, etc. If there was a way to create personal ballots by year-- that included multiple categories-- I know lots of people who would rush to join.

  3. Filter Comments/Jokes/Memes from actual reviews and introduce "helpful"-button

    Make a filter to switch user input between Comments/Jokes/Memes and more serious reviews.

    I suggest to give Comments/Jokes/Memes a reduced number of characters so that they feel like a tweet on Twitter. Keep the "Like"-Button here.

    Actual reviews with great and insightful content should require an appropriate minimum of characters before being posted. Introduce a "helpful"-Button here.

    Abusing the review section for Jokes should be reportable.

    I think this is a solution that would benefit everyone and the social aspect of letterboxd would not suffer.

  5. Ability to search users by gender.

    It's hard to find other women to follow in the Letterboxd sausage fest. Some way to make this possible?

  6. Table view of "Films->Sort by Popular"

    The "Films->Sort by Popular" view is currently in grid format only. It might be interesting to also be able to display this in table view, with a column indicating the "popularity" of (i.e. how many members have viewed) each film.

  7. increase the size of the thumbnails

    hi, i registered, was invited to click 'watched and liked' on the next page. On that page the thumbnails where so small i didn't know if id seen them or not, never mind liked them.
    I took my glasses off. I zoomed in on the browser - no good. I could spot a couple of famous films but not most of them.

    Im not even that old, im 40 and i work in a fairly technical industry.

    It would be really funny if ive missed something, as it means im getting old - i hope I have for your sake,…

  8. Imdb/total film/empire links

    It would be great to be able to link or film magazines to our letterboxd accounts. I find a lot of my movie news from places link imdb and digital copies of film magazines mostly on my tablet. It is really annoying to have to close an application and open up letterboxd to add something to my watch list. I don't know if there was some way this could me made easier? Thanks

  9. Filter Fans

    I think it'd be cool to add one more filter, which is the amount of fans a movie has. I think it'd also be cool if you could get a comparison of your four favorites to other users to see who matches yours the most.

  10. I consistency between Comments and Likes on Activity Stream

    By which I mean, when you like someone's review it will be displayed as 'You liked Zach's 2 star review of X'.

    But when you comment on a review, it comes up as 'You commented on Zach's review of X'.

    Is there way to get them to match up, so when you comment it will give the star rating.

    E.g. 'You commented on Zach's 2 star review of X'?

  11. Make the numbers on a film's page more useful.

    When you go to a film's page there are three numbers underneath the movie poster: watches | lists | likes.

    These are all core features of the site but just giving me a number tells me nothing useful about any of those things. Some suggestions (using The Dark Knight as a reference since it's popular):

    1. Lists
    This is the main one I have a problem with. As of writing TDK is on 792 lists. What does this number tell me? Nothing! A big problem with the site is the sheer number of lists, and a quick click of TDK's…

  12. Manually choose title when adding to lists

    I'd like an option in which I can choose what alternative title I add to my list. Sometimes a movie title is automatically changed to the international title, or the English one, while I didn't watch the international or English one. It makes more sense to be able to choose what title you add to your list and not just be obliged to choose the international title.

  13. Delete an entire tag

    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?

  16. Instagram button

    I'd really, really appreciate an optional button of the Instagram logo that'd link to one's profile, to match the one we already have for Twitter. Would look so much cleaner than it does currently, with me having to make the former my "website." :)

  17. I kind of want to be able to organize films by the amount of people on the site that have it on their watchlist

    To create a category on the films page to organize by the amount of users that want to watch that film. there could also be another category for sorting by the amount of the people you follow that want to watch it.

  18. Match films to a list based on other lists.

    Letterboxd should suggest films that fit into a list based on the films that are in the list compared to other lists. Or just suggest other lists with similar films in it.

  19. Web: add Character names and headsots

    In the cast section of a movie it would be good if it showed the actor or actresses name plus the name of their character in the film and also their headshot.

    A couple of times now I've found that it's easier to use another app or the web to find who the character/actor was then come back to letterboxd.

    We’re thinking about how to bring character images to the web as an option. Character names are there if you hover over the actor.

    Character names will be in the next release of the iPhone app too, and are already in Android.

  20. Can you update the data for this entry please?

    http://letterboxd.com/film/une-minute-de-silence/

    The data is right here:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0169348/

    It doesn't even have the year of release or an image on Letterboxd.
