Hi MovieLens users! We recently launched our first major revision to MovieLens since 2003! Please help us grow in the right direction by giving us thoughtful feedback on the design and functioning of the new user experience.

Ideas, questions, and bug reports are all welcome here.

101 results found

  1. Similar Movies, more search tools

    When viewing similar movies provide more search tools, as seen elsewhere on the site. Specifically, the tool I would use the most is an option to show only unrated movies.

  2. Make movies sortable by length

    Pretty self-explanatory. It would be nice to have movie length as an option under filters as well.

  3. new way to sort films

  4. sort suggestions based on predicted ratings

    Maybe this is already possible, but I don't see it. I just want to see the movies that movielens predicts I'll rate the highest. right now movie lens only suggests movies that I would rate between 4-4.5 stars. When I go to the top picks and sort by recommended. then it only shows me 4.1 star movies.

    Meanwhile my friend tells me I need to watch the Shawshank redemption, I search it on MovieLens and get a predicted score of 4.9! I'm scratching my head wondering, why am I getting a recommendation for some weird looking movie called Jojo Rabbit…

  5. An app would be nice.

    Probably would be easier than the website on a phone.

  6. Suggestions filter by where you can watch.

    It would be great to see the most recommend movies that are available on the platforms I subscribe to. I have ran into the issue that there is a movie you recommend and I want to watch it but I have to use another service to see if it is streaming anywhere. Wasted time for a lot of people who won't buy or rent old movies since we already pay monthly subscriptions.

  7. Sharable wishlist

    I'd like to have some new features:
    1) Sharable wishlist - just give a link to my wishlist my husband who's not registered yet so he could pick up something he'd wish to see from what I've already chosen
    2) When I finally convince him to join, it would be awesome to create a recommendation list for both of us, which would take into account previous ratings of us both.
    At least, it would be cool if user1 could see a wishlist or rating made for user2 but ordered by proposed ratings for user1. I believe a lot of people…

  8. Include more women on your team - lessen the male bias. Don't use stereotypical terms like "chick flicks" to trivialize types of movies

    "Chick flicks" as a category? Inherent negative bias makes it appear that the movies are automatically shallow. I find the terminology patronizing.

    I understand and fundamentally agree with your concern. However, tags are contributed by the community, not our team. We currently do not have any mechanism or policy for censoring tags. Suggestions?

    FYI, you can flag tags as “bad”, which will make them less likely to show up to subsequent users.

  9. increasing the Hd

    HD as we know inreases the beauty and perfect picture to be observed by the clients (Viewers).This will help in increase of their need to watch them(movies).

    Would you please clarify what you’re asking for? Are you asking for retina support for our images? Or, tagging movies with blu-ray?

  10. Would be MUCH BETTER If i could rate "actors"

    Wish i could rate actors.. There're some movies I'll never watch if there's some actor I dislike in it. I hate poor acting =\

  12. Why this project doesn't have a Github?

    It would be great if exists any open repository with commiters and contributors and people could implement more interesting features together?

    It’s a cool idea, and worth further consideration. However, it is currently unlikely to happen given MovieLens’s utility as a research platform for our graduate students.

  13. 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!

  14. Explore ratings of users that share similar taste

    Allow to explore the list of films rated by other users that have a similar taste for movies

    Add quotes to the movies, then it would be a great place to centralize all cinema things for everyone.

  17. Stop recommending very old movies when I clearly do not watch/rate them.

    Every time I try to come back and use the site I'm always driven away by the need to hide pages and pages of old movie recommendations.

  18. Privacy support

    You could for example apply a simple data mining privacy preserving approach to your database ratings to a small extend (e.g 10%).

    This might bring lower accuracy. However users mights give more ratings freely.

  19. You could give the option to the users to create a trust (maybe a distrust also) network of users, such the one found in epinions

    By creating a trust network perhaps the accuracy can become better, you could have more diverse recommendations and solve the cold start problem in some extend.

    Happy to join and help in any way possible!

  20. Separate playlists?

    I have different expectations for an action movie than I do for a drama. Sometimes I am in the mood for something different than I am normally looking for.

    Is it possible to create separate playlists? I want at least three playlists, one for movies that will make me think, one for movies that will make me feel, and one for mindless fun.

    I think that Pandora handles this well. I generally like singer/songwriter mellow stuff (Sarah McLachlan, Dar Williams, The Hush Sound, Leonard Cohen), but I also like a little bit of metal (Sabaton, Nightwish). Putting them on a…

    Great idea. We’ve been pondering “mood-based recommendations” for a while.
