  1. IMDB "TV Mini Series" Classification

    Many docuseries' that are technically classified on IMDB as a "TV Mini Series" are already in the database (ex. Jinx, The Staircase). However, adding them via a IMDB link always get rejected because of the "TV Mini Series" classification. I don't mind emailing the link for approval, but maybe this can be straightened out?

  3. filter for stars (predicted as well as avg user ratings)

    Currently, there seems to be a filter for "number of ratings". A new filter should be added which can be used to filter the movies on the basis of predicted stars for me - >4.1 stars.

    One more filter should be added to filter movies on the basis of avg user reviews - >4 stars

  4. Rate separate factors

    I often face a dilemma because I find many terrible movies enjoyable to watch. I feel conflicted about rating a bad quality movie higher than a good quality movie, although I do it anyway. If I could rate movie quality and enjoyability separately, that would solve it for me.

  5. Option to get Top picks based on TARGET mood

    Since there was a question in the survey about moods, I expect it to be a parameter in the picking of movies.
    Let me explain TARGET mood: The mood I want to be, not the mood I am now. For example "happy" as target mood is more accurate for picking movies than "depressed" as current mood. Because a "depressed" user might want different picks, one might want to cheer up, other might want to sulk in self-pity.

  6. Directors, Writers, Cast...

    You've got "directors" and "cast", much like the old Movielens, how about listing the writers too?

  7. Integration of tags and wish list

    An alternative to the idea of allowing users to create their own lists.

    I know you can create your own tags and view all of the tags you've created, but I feel like it makes more sense to combine this feature with your Wishlist. My vision is that there would be some sort of side bar including your Wishlist, followed by all of your tags (and perhaps the option to sort these tags in an order of your choosing).

    That way you could have tags such as "Wishlist--Classics", "Wishlist--Top rated", "Wishlist--Foreign films", "Recommendations from Emi", "Favorite films", "Films for long…

  8. Expand the statistics Movielens provides

    Can Movielens, based on my ratings, provide an estimate of my preference for the work of particular directors, screenwriters, and actors?

    Also, it would be great to see an estimate of my preference for different combinations (e.g., directors x screen writers, or directors x actors).

  9. Autocomplete incorrectly shows no results in some cases (was: Why is finding movies with multiple names so hard on new Movielens?)

    I've had trouble finding a few movies here since you updated the site. If I search a foreign movie by the original name it shows no results and only when I try adding it to the database the page tells me it's already there. I had the same problem when I looked for a movie with at least two English names. I've never had trouble with this before.

    started  ·  Max Harper responded

    Thanks for the bug report. We know about two issues:

    • can’t search for numbers (e.g., “300”)
    • can’t search for non-ascii characters (e.g., “amélie”)

    We plan to fix these problems soon. Also, we plan to add support for multiple/secondary titles, which may address Raven’s comments.

    If you post examples of searches that fail that don’t belong to those two categories, that would be very helpful.

  10. make movie page visible to non registered people

    It would be nice for people that are not users of MovieLens to able to see the movie page itself. i often share on facebook what i see and friends cant see the page. =)

  11. Friends' recently rate movies

    The old website allowed you to share an RSS feed of your recently rated movies with friends, a feature that no longer exists. Will this sort of feature ever be implemented again?

    Assuming the infrastructure exists in the form of a buddy/friend system, I think sharing your ratings and seeing how your friends rated movies would add greatly to the fun.

    I hope to hear back from you!

  13. Add "Movies you added" to "Your Activity" section.

    It would be nice to track the movies you have added to movielens database. Currently there seems to be no such possibility.

  14. API to retrieve IMDB id's for recommended movies

    Hey, I'd love to be able to integrate movielens's suggestions into a mediacenter on a raspberry, it would be awesome to access the recommended movie list and be able to rate them from there !

    It seems to have been mentionned here already : http://movielens.uservoice.com/forums/238501-general/suggestions/6404521-api-for-creating-and-updating-a-profile

  15. Create personal lists and share with the world

    It would be cool to create personal lists; like for example "Best Movies of 2015" and we could share we the world our taste and recommendations =)

  16. Deduction variables

    It would be cool if I will be able to exclude definitely not interesting for me movies from the recommendation list: for example, I do not want to see any movies with a specific actor, movies about gays, or movies about certain time period why I still have to scroll manually among proposed movies ?

  17. Don't force the user to login all the time

    Just use a permenant cookie to keep the user's state.

    When you go to Facebook or Gmail you almost never have to login ... why force the user to login on movielens?

  18. Return poster to where trailer now is

    Apparently someone decided it's a good idea to move trailers to the space where movie posters previously were.

    It was not a good idea. The trailer poster often gives you zero information about the movie and quite honestly looks like crap compared to the posters. Which have been designed to be visual and try to be interesting. Please return the posters where they belong. At least give us an option to choose instead of forcing this on everyone.
