  1. Wow, thanks / this and that

    Firstly, I've spent lockdown day 39 trying to find a replacement for Trakt. As a subscribed pro Trakt user I am fed up with the CRAP movies it suggests to me. It thinks I am a teenage boy who loves action, horror or frat comedies. Thank the frigging lord I found you. I have also extensively tried both Letterboxd and Simkl, and none were any different from Trakt. I LOVE the way this hides stuff I have seen, I love you can hide stuff you don't want to see, for whatever reason, and I much prefer the movies it is…

  6. Rating comparison

    A feature to compare two specific users - presumably yourself and a friend - showing general trends and differences. For instance, users may both rate 80s action movies higher, but one might always rate Stallone movies higher and another Schwarzenegger, for instance.

  7. Charts improvements

    Hi,
    First of all let me tell you how helpful this website is. Thank you for your hard work!
    It's a bit confusing that there's overlap of years in the "release years of your rated movies" chart. For example, there's a column for movies released between 2000 and 2005, and the next column is for movies released between 2005 and 2010. So, which column counts the movies released on 2005? The former? The latter? Both?!
    Also, the "your ratings over time" could use some interactive abilities (focusing on a specific time range, filter out movies by rating, genre and release…

  8. Export all recommendations

    Is there a way to just export the movies that are suggested that fall under "drama" for example ? Or all the recommendations and then I can filter them out - I believe I used to be able to do this on the legacy system.

  9. Add ability to sort alphabetically (universally)

    Universally across all the pages on the MovieLens website, the 'Sort by' dropdown currently does not allow members to sort the displayed category's movies alphabetically; just 4 sort options are presented: 1) recommended, 2) # ratings, 3) release date, 4) date added to MovieLens.

    From time to time (but certainly not always and certainly not as the default), I'd like to view certain pages sorted alphabetically. Almost 6 years ago, a member posted the suggestion here to add the ability to sort 'My Ratings' (specifically) alphabetically ( https://movielens.uservoice.com/forums/238501-general/suggestions/6378010-add-the-ability-to-sort-my-ratings-alphabeticall ) and a few other members agreed that they'd also like the…

    Sorry for taking so long to get to this, We’ve been working to rewrite some of our sort logic for a while just to clean up some really messy code that was getting in the way of changes.

    It actually looks like this is implemented in the backend already, so it should definitely be added to the front-end by the next update.

  11. stats graph for release years is confusing

    The stats graph for rated movies is confusing, the time frame is 5 years but subsequent bars both have years that end with 0 or 5. For example if a movie is released in 1990, it would go to both 1985-1990 bar and 1990-1995 bar. It would be better if the bars would be 1980-1984, 1985-1989, 1990-1994 etc.

  12. Allow me to ignore certain genres

    I used MovieLens many years ago when it first started, then stopped. Now I'm trying it again, but see that many of the old features are gone. It used to be possible to exclude certain types of movies (e.g. children's, horror, foreign language, etc.). At this point all I can do when I encounter a kind of movie I know I'd never want to watch is to hide it, which is time-consuming.
