Letterboxd is a social network for sharing your taste in film. Find and follow your friends to see what they’re enjoying.
Use it as a diary to record your opinion about films as you watch them, or just to keep track of films you’ve seen in the past. Keep a watchlist of films you’d like to see, and create lists/collections on any given topic, for example: favorite heist films.
Letterboxd is named for our love of the widescreen format, and has nothing whatsoever to do with orienteering or that thing in . The easiest interaction is to mark films you’ve seen (or liked) using the icons on each poster.
You can rate films and perform other actions from the Actions menu on the film’s poster as well.
You’ll receive an XML file which you can import via the edit page of an existing list, or when creating a new list.
Netflix no longer provides an API to directly import your viewing history, but there are user scripts like this one that could be made to work with the CSV import facility described above.
Adding films in this manner builds up your Diary (a record of when you saw each film) and the Recently Watched section of your Profile page. Ratings attached to diary entries and reviews are not updated.
Generally this is accomplished by adding mattes (or “black bars”) above and below the picture area. Create an account — there is no requirement to be invited by another member. (Also, check out the legal version.) Short answer: however you like.
We’ve been described as “like Good Reads for movies”.
Pro members can import data from other apps or databases, share detailed stats via personalized Year in Review and Year in Progress pages, clone other members’ lists and more. Read about why we made Letterboxd or, if you wish, like us on Facebook.
Due to a limitation in one of our frameworks, the editing page for a list is only able to support 3,300 items.
You can create larger lists by adding films directly from their own page, however you won’t be able to open such lists for editing.
Feel free to use the Report function to alert us to trailer (or other pre-release) reviews, which we’ll remove at our discretion.
