  1. Recommendation Explanation

    For example: "Movielens thinks you'll enjoy Fight Club, given that you highly rated Donnie Darko and Pulp Fiction"

    Sometimes I have no Idea why I've gotten a certain recommendation

  2. An app would be nice.

    Probably would be easier than the website on a phone.

  3. Titles according to user language (localization)

    IMDB shows the title of a film in my language (as guessed from my browser settings, I guess). Even if you keep the user interface in English, you should offer (at least in searches) my interface language (with fallbacks for same-language different-country titles), English and the original film language.

    Thanks for the feedback! We do have a very international user base, so this makes sense.

  4. "Unexpected Likes" and "Unexpected Dislikes" on "About your ratings" page.

    On the "About your ratings page", it would be great to have sections that show which of one's ratings have the largest positive/negative discrepancy with the (leave-one-out) predicted rating for that movie.

    To put it another way, it would be great to be able to see one's own eccentricities with respect to the algorithm as well as with respect to the bulk of MovieLens users.

  5. Filter by Length / Duration

    Add a Length / Duration filter. Sometimes you have just a short amount of time and want to see something that fits that window. Other times, you are in the mood to see a 3 hour behemoth . Since the informations is already there, it shouldn't be diffcult to implement.

    Thanks for the idea – yes, we do have the information to add that filter, good to know that there’s a use case!

  6. Kodi (XBMC) and Plex plugins?

    Kodi (former XBMC) and Plex are the best HTPC software. The hardcode movie lovers are using them to organize and watch their movies.

    What about of plugins for those?

  7. Link to films available on Netflix

    It would be useful to be able to filter films by only those available on Netflix

    Right now have to do a search for any film that has a high rating from movielens

  8. Export results option

    I´ve like the option to export all my recomendations, my wishlist, my ratings or every list I can generate. So later I can analyze this in other software.
    If this, I discovered that watched more Spielberg than I've liked... or cross later with my imdb list and verify what is diferent, what is missing.
    Some data is never enough :)

  9. Occasionally "force" me to rate movies I've already rated.

    I end up rating movies that I've recently seen much higher than similarly good movies from years ago. Giving me (users) an occasional movie to rate that I've already rated without my showing my previous rating might keep algorithms freshly accurate, or at least would provide additional data points. Complex? Yes, but perhaps quite valuable.

  10. Integrate with Letterboxd!

    An integration with Letterboxd would be fantastic, because tags and ratings could automatically be sent over from one site to the other. I think it'd add for better suggestions, too, as you'd be able to base suggestions on how many times someone has seen a particular movie or genre.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Letterboxd does provide RSS feeds, so this is theoretically possible. Let’s see if others vote for this feature.

  11. "Sorry, a problem occurred while importing your ratings."

    I'm trying to import my ratings from IMDB and I'm receiving the following error:

    "Sorry, a problem occurred while importing your ratings."

    It happens within a few seconds. Any ideas?

  12. Import jinni.com personal ratings

    Jinni.com has just ended their service and sent everyone's personal ratings to their email. Therefore, lots of people would like to import their ratings to MovieLens.

    Please, make your import thingy to work its magic with jinni's rating file in csv-format! All you need to do is to match Title.

    Here is a sample of jinni.xls format

    title;year;titletype;rate;ratingdate
    Bram Stoker's Dracula;1992;Movie;10;17.5.2014
    Moulin Rouge;2001;Movie;10;27.10.2013
    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly;1966;Movie;10;1.8.2012

    We are planning to add the capability of filtering by language, which I think gets you what you’re looking for.

    I suppose the other option would be to have a filter to “hide a genre” – e.g., all genres except x. We’re not planning that one, but happy to hear feedback.

  14. Show movies by similarity

    I'd like a way to view the list of movies organised by similarity, e.g. setting, script writer, adapted from same source / remakes.

    I’m interested in hearing ideas from movielens users on how we might operationalize these features.

    Any thoughts, live action and anime would be great!

  16. Add a language filter for searches

    One of the features that kept my interest with Movielens was how varied the nationality of the recommendations I received. looking at my current recommendations the top ones are all western films or foreign films that were redistributed in the west. Would it be possible to add a filter by language and/or nationality?

  17. Allow arbitrary precision for predictions in stars widget

    Currently, the predicted stars widgets display predicted ratings with 0.5 star precision. E.g., if the predicted rating is 3.82, it will make 3 and a half of the stars blue. It would be more useful to make three full stars and 82% of a fourth star blue.

  18. dismiss recommendation

    Easily dismiss recommendation, i now hide the movie
    There are movies that i do not intent to see, so i cannot rate them negatively because i haven't seen them, but i want the "system" to know not to recommend them.
