Hi Adam, you mentioned over on that latest podcast thread that you saw that someone had posted the 500<400 list on Letterboxd. Would you happen to have a link to this Letterboxd version of the 500<400 list?

Only added 1001 favourite movies plus decade lists so far but will add more.

I've very, very rarely used Letterboxd so if anyone knows how I can add the Das Boot mini-series to the 1980s list, please let me know.
Perhaps TMDb (Letterboxd’s data source) doesn’t differentiate between the mini-series and the film?

Yeah, that might well be the issue. Hopefully there's some way to resolve it as I don't really know anything about TMDb.

Updated the Letterboxd iCMforum profile with a shiny new logo with help from mightysparks.

Be sure to follow us here: https://letterboxd.com/icmforum/ if you haven't already.

I feel like adding more forum lists to LB just because the process of adding them is so smooth.

Kinda annoyed with how the Letterboxd crew sometimes just deletes films without notice. Since I signed up, they've managed to delete three films/entries:

1. Patterson-Gimlin Film - which they reinstated after I sent them the following e-mail last November:
Can you please elaborate? It does not break any of the "rules" mentioned under the Film Data section of the Letterboxd FAQ (https://letterboxd.com/about/frequent-questions/).

Something like the Zapruder Film of Kennedy Assassination (https://letterboxd.com/film/zapruder-fi ... ssination/) apparently is allowed on Letterboxd. Both the Zapruder and the Patterson-Gimlin film can be classified as home movies and the authenticity of both films has been disputed over time. The Zapruder film was added to the National Film Registry in 1994 so of course it has deserved its status in film history and therefore an entry on Letterboxd. Though not added to the National Film Registry, the Patterson-Gimlin film also has earned its place in film history - just glance over the film's Wikipedia page to see to what length it has been discussed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patterson ... lm-related. It was even shown in theaters, as per the following quote from Wikipedia: "To obtain money to travel to Thailand, "Patterson called Ron, who had returned to ANE, and sold the company the theatrical rights to the clip for what Olson described as a pretty good sum of money."[132]"

I hope you can reconsider because the decision seems rather arbitrary now.
2. Prada: Candy (twice) - which I get, because it's a commercial.
3. Zapruder Film of Kennedy Assassination - seems to have been deleted very recently. I just sent them an e-mail for this one asking them to review their decision, based on the National Film Registry argument. Pretty ironic that it's the exact same film that I referred to in my mail regarding Patterson-Gimlin Film. If I'd referred back to the Patterson-Gimlin Film this time, they might just have reconsidered that one again as well. :P

Let's hope for the best. If they don't decide to reinstate it, I hope you guys can come up with some arguments.

Letterboxd also has a very strange rule for adult films, it doesn't make any sense at all.

There has been an ongoing discussion about it for over five years, but they still haven't done anything about it. One of the big negative aspects of the site for me.

Is anybody else getting an absurd amount of ads on every page of Letterboxd? (even the profile page has ads).

I know they want us to signup for pro, but my goodness has it become intrusive. The last thing I want is to have an unskippable video play every time I load a page. If they don't fix this soon, we might have a good way to get people to shift over to ICM.

Also my Letterboxd is in my signature for those wanting to follow me!

Edit, not just me + adblock now seems to fix the problem

I use an adblocker on almost everything. It's not because I want sites to suffer, but I find most of them overly intrusive and they're a security hazard these days ("drive-by malware" is a thing, just ask nytimes.com).

I didn't mind paying for the Pro version. I'm not a fan of ads either, so when sites offer a way to bypass them I think it's only fair to support that.

The adult film thing is so puritanical and irritating. Nobody complains about IMDb having pages for shit like Hungry Bitches and Cum Fart Cocktails 4. Letterboxd is by no means a family site and should not try to be one.

Should it, really? Yes, you can flag them as adult on TMDb but it’s Letterboxd’s choice to not allow them on their site.

films that are not adult in my opinion (not meant as wank material) are hard to get "unflagged" at tmdb, which makes them impossible to add to LB... so in my mind they are the puritanical one... but I'm sure they both could be. Some gate keeping is always usefull (otherwise anything that has an even slight visual aspect can be labelled a movie, imdb should be a bit stricter in my opinion), but the downside is that borderlines get arbitrary and frustrating...

I don't use Letterboxd, so this doesn't really affect me, but this is 100% Letterboxd's fault imo. Letterboxd should allow all adult films, so people can keep track of what films they watch. Any other solution seems ridiculous to me. The idea of having a list of "important/historically significant" is ridiculous too, because it's too subjective and it'll never be complete.

tmdb has a bunch of other bizarre and ambiguous restrictions. For a site whose purpose is to be the open competitor to imdb's relatively closed data hoarding they are much more moderation heavy in their approach to nearly everything. Their mods will communicate in a way imdb never would, but I'm not sure that does much for the end result.

After 3 years or so as a very active member on letterboxd, I decided to quit.

I got tired of the social network side of it, which is actually what made me like it in the first place. For example, I used to write movie reviews on imdb just for myself while on letterboxd I'm expecting to get some kind of interaction with my followers through likes and comments.. lame.

I was also just reading movie reviews from the users that I followed as the website feels more like a popularity contest to see who gets the most likes. Sometimes I used to take a look at the most popular reviews of the day and most of these were just a few lines of shit. Well letterboxd content is all about movie reviews with very basic information about the movie such as runtime, genre, director, etc. so it loses its purpose to me. I would rather rate the movie and read some information such as trivia etc on imdb instead of reading opinions that don't give me any knowledge.

Even though the movie stats feature is very good, it requires a pro account which I don't want to keep spending money for. And a few things can be replaced with imdb pro search. Plus, they have so many ads now they occupy half of my screen (even adblock can't hide all of them).

I have been a member of imdb for 13 years who didn't use it in the past 3 years and really like how it looks now. Imdb's home page is nice looking and I can find all the latest news and trailers on mainstream movies and tv shows, what's trending, what's playing near me, etc. The original content looks very interesting. No ads. The app works great. I also missed clicking on a movie's page and actually finding useful information about it, as I mentioned before. And of course, the tv shows. I never understood why letterboxd only allows "limited series" and anime. Sometimes a limited series such as Big Little Lies gets a 2nd season, but they don't remove it because it got so popular. It's just confusing, I prefer to have all my ratings in one place.

What still sucks about imdb is how hard it became to create a list since they removed the drag feature... and still no option to import ratings! I'll have to rate around 1200 titles one by one, but it will be worth it to be back home. :wub:

I could never go back to IMDb. I love the Letterboxd interface too much and find it so user friendly. IMDb is a visually ugly site that I don't see as being intuitive at all. There are, however, three major drawbacks to Letterboxd:

1) No adult films. I'm happy that they don't have TV shows. I wish limited series weren't even included. But they're missing some extremely relevant and important films that happen to be considered pornographic.

2) The horrendous "reviews." I agree with everything you say about the popular reviews, they're absolute dogshit. On a popular film, it's nearly always lame, A24-obsessed teenagers trying (and failing) to be funny. Some of the site's most beloved users thoroughly rub me the wrong way. My reviews are far from the best, there are people who put serious thought and detail into their criticism, but I try to write at least a paragraph about every feature I see and a couple sentences about every short. The most likes I have ever gotten on a review is eight.

3) The mobile app sucks.

I don't get the issue with the popular reviews. Just don't look at them? And they're occasionally funny... but really, just follow people who are interesting and look at their reviews, it's what I do whenever I watch a film. Those come above the popular reviews when you're on a film's page, so it's not like LB is "forcing" you to look at the one-liners either.

That's fair, and I cannot speak for the other guy, but I'm not big on following people I don't know unless they follow me first. I have anxiety about initiating contact with strangers, even for something as simple as a Letterboxd follow, because I don't want anyone thinking I'm a fucking weirdo who has decided to stalk them. I do read whatever the folks I follow have to say, but I find it valuable to read strangers' intelligent opinions as well. On more obscure films, the popular reviews are often great, because the people who enjoy hamming it up normally don't watch that stuff.

3) The mobile app sucks.
I think imdb's homepage looks cool. Just a place to go to get some news on mainstream movies and shows. The rest of the sites looks the same it did like... 10 years ago? Hmm I honestly don't mind how the user and movie pages look. Feels familiar, feels like home lol. But yeah, clicking on a director or actor's page and beeing able to sort titles by popularity or hide watched titles was by far my favourite thing about letterboxd. It's very useful and it looks pretty. On imdb, I'll have to click on each movie to compare ratings and number of votes from a director or actor I just found. Imagine if the director/actor has like 50 titles.. damn. I'll still use lb from time to time for this feature for sure.

1) Yeah should decide between having series or no series at all. And many titles aren't actual movies, such as miniseries or some types of episodes. I'm not into porn movies but I saw one a few days ago as part of my "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" project called "Behing the Green Door" with almost 2k votes on imdb which yeah, it isn't on lb but should be qualified as a movie.

2) And it's always the same users. They get likes for beeing popular and not for what they write. At least that bs doesn't happen on imdb the same way as users don't have followers and reviews have a like/dislike option, also users don't get notified when someone likes their reviews. This is the experience that I miss.

The most that I got was 17 likes for "Make the last wish" making it the most liked review. Obscure movies will always have the best reviews and the imdb message boards were so good to discuss those movies. Everything else was shit and I'm glad they removed the message boards.

3) I've just started using it and it works fine. Why do you say it sucks?

I don't look at the most popular reviews, most recent reviews and most popular lists, which is most of the information on a movie's page. This is what I was complaining about before and what made me move back to imdb, I honestly just prefer to read some useful info and read some reviews as an extra.

Also, without a pro account I can't filter what shows up on my feed. Most of the content that I get is useless, such as one user liking 20 reviews from different movies in one minute.. which makes me wonder if the likes that I get are honest or not :shrug: . This social network culture isn't for me at all.

The stupid teen reviews on Letterboxd are by far the thing I hate the most about it, but when I do read them I either filter by friends only or I skim to look for one that's at least a paragraph. It's pretty easy to ignore the social parts of the site if you follow the right people and ignore the 'popular' stuff.

This social network culture isn't for me at all.
This is inaccurate. My Letterboxd homepage is my "activity" page, which has only activity from the people I follow. You do not need a pro account for that, nor do you need one for your "friends's" (aka the people you follow) reviews to show up above the popular and recent reviews on a film's page.

The "new from friends" activity shows both reviewed and non-reviewed titles and "popular reviews with friends" activity shows not only their reviews but also reviews they liked or commented from strangers. The only way to filter reviews from friends and see nothing else is with a pro account.

Yeah, My IMDb is pretty sweet as well. It's an extension that highlights movies you've rated on people's pages, I highly recommend it. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... hhmb?hl=en
