  3. Maybe a better search function

    Was searching for the Movie “A Sun”. Could not find it. So I added a link from IMDb. Then “it” says the movie was already there. With a filter search I could find the movie. Not the most ideal way

  4. Mobile site issues

    The mobile site on chrome for iOS doesn’t work very well. I can’t advance to the next page of movie titles. Can there please be a setting to turn off artwork and see movies in list view?

  7. Make movies sortable by length

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

  8. Recomendations

    Whatever your system is it isn't very good. I rated a movie a 1 star and you recommend the sequel? Why would i want to watch the sequel to a movie I hated? You need a complete overall over your system clearly.

    While we won’t be overhauling our recommendation algorithm, we do hope to review the tuning of their parameters. Until them, please see the comment for advice on how your personal recommendations might be improved.

  9. Allow sorting by rating

    why on earth isn't this a thing? i want to see my wishlist by the highest rated first, but i can't

  10. Allow a page for "rare movies" "unusual dislikes" "unusual likes"

    These used to be links to see all result but now it just shows you 5 or so and you can't see the others

  11. API to notify on new ratings

    It would be nice to have an API where the user could register to get a request when some events occur, like when the user rates a movie.
    With that we could integrate with services like IFTTT to trigger some actions upon rating like sharing with friends, add to other services, etc.

  12. Ignore caps

    Have you thought about ignoring capital letters in tags? There's tags like "medieval" and "Medieval". This merge would help show more accurate tag results, especially for less popular films with this issue.

  13. Streaming or purchase sources

    It would be great to have streaming sources identified in each movie's listing, for example, hyperlinked to Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc. where available. (Country specific would be ideal -- I'm in Canada and streaming options here are different than in the US.) I'm sure you could work out associate revenue when links are followed. It would save us time looking them up.

  16. What Does a Title Highlighted in Yellow Mean?

    When I'm browsing suggestions, some of the movie's title cards will have a yellow background, while the others are just white. I couldn't find an explanation as to why?

  17. Improve site performance

    I started using movielens a lot since i dicosvered it, but both in windows 10 (with firefox) and on a web browser in my android phone i find the site slow to load and to navigate around sections. it's really noticeable on phone devices.

    Thank you for your time and effort.

  18. Improve the "Watch Trailer" feature.

    Some movies seem to point to incorrect videos instead of the actual trailer when clicking "Watch Trailer", for example a few I found today:

    https://movielens.org/movies/1945
    https://movielens.org/movies/1090
    https://movielens.org/movies/163645
    https://movielens.org/movies/142488
    https://movielens.org/movies/26131

    I'm not sure how it's being done. Though using YouTubes API query endpoint to search for movie name + " trailer" and using the first result shouldn't cause this issue no?

  20. 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.
