Editors’ Notes

The first thing we want to do after seeing a movie is talk about it, and Letterboxd is a great place to connect with fellow film buffs. With this slick, streamlined app, we can easily share lists and reviews—and comment on friends’ updates—from the couch or the movie-theater lobby. If you’re serious about cinema, you’ll feel right at home.


Needs to be fixed

This app is my go to app for logging and keeping track of films. I watch movies all the time and I rarely open my IMDb app anymore since discovering letterboxd because it’s much nicer to navigate and it’s more useful and reliable to form opinions about new releases and if I’m going to see them vs an IMDb rating alone, the user reviews on IMDb were always unreliable and now I can see what my friends are watching and their thoughts on films. I discover new ones all the time.

That being said, this app either doesn’t load most of the time or crashes every single day. I’m rarely able to even search for Movies anymore, update my lists or make new ones, or log films without being told there’s an error or an issue. Nothing gets saved. So in short, the app is full of bugs that updates never, ever fix. I’m not sure why these can’t be fixed but it needs to happen because it’s incredibly frustrating. Especially if you are someone who pays to use the app. Thanks.


So close to 5 stars

Letterboxd has been such a big motivator to watch more movies for me and I absolutely adore so many things about it that really make it stand out from other media tracking apps like the diary feature. The one thing that keeps this from being a five star review is that I think it's ridiculous you have to either connect your Twitter account or make a Gravatar to change your profile picture. I would also suggest adding tv shows. I currently use tv time which I also love but I would definitely prefer having both my tv shows and movies in one app and Letterboxd would be that app for me. I know a lot of people just want movies but tracking/seeing tv shows in lists and such could just be an option. I know a lot of people would use it and those that wouldn't could disable the feature.
