Set a movie as "seen" (without rating it)
Hi, I know you guys are working on recommandations and ratings, but for us (users), it would be great to be able to set a movie as seen, without rating it.
This is useful if you want to keep a "log" of what you know you have seen, but without having to rate it (either because you don't remember the movie or because you want to rate it later).
Thanks for the idea! We have certainly discussed this feature, and could implement it if it gathers support here.
"Same here, I saw most of the recommended movies already. But too long ago to rate accurately."
and I'm not interested in watching them again anytime soon.

I was thinking along similar lines for movies I've seen but don't remember clearly, but then I just started clicking the trailers for those, and memory catches up immediately allowing me to rate them (and also sometimes causing me to watch the movie again).

The 'seen' checkbox should be completely unrelated to the rating of the movie. Some users suggested "I don't want to see this movie" feature, I think it should be replaced with the ability to rate a movie without actually watch the movie. I watched the trailer, really didn't like it, give negative rate (although I've never watched it, so 'seen' is false). previous ratings of users commonly assumed to be only after watching the movie, but it's actually missing data.
So I can see 2 options here: 1. ability to rate a movie, and rate a trailer (at least 2 ratings for each movie). 2. just another true/false 'seen' field, which indicates the meaning or the importance of the rating
In all the lists I go through, I constantly run into lots of movies that I have seen some time ago but don't remember them good enough to rate. It would be really awesome to set them as seen without rating them so that 1) They are all in one list somewhere and I can see what I could watch again (and then rate); 2) They don't mess up my top picks list and other lists etc. etc.
