  2. Save your search options

    I'd like to save my save options so I don't have to enter them every time I look for a movie. For example 2 of my most used filters are only movies released between 1995 and current year (2015), and it's something I'm not going to change in the future.

  4. Remove TV Shows

    There are a large amount of TV shows that are appearing in my recommendations. There's an option to mark these as not a movie, but I have not seen them get removed.

    A few examples:
    Stranger Things: https://movielens.org/movies/162376
    Black Mirror: https://movielens.org/movies/94466
    Making a Murderer: https://movielens.org/movies/150856

    Is there a type of threshold needed to get these removed?

  5. Revert Tile Changes

    The new tile changes, while visually appealing, significantly reduce ease of use for the site. I enjoyed that I could rate, hide, or wishlist any movie with static buttons which were always in the same place on the movie's tile. This allowed for quick rating and quick watchlisting. Now I must hover to pop up the star ratings and have to click into a context menu to either hide the movie or add it to the watchlist. While only being a few more actions, it significantly reduces the site's snappy user interface. I strongly dislike waiting for sliding animations and…

  6. Fix the year filter in the search.

    I can't get rid of all the 2019 movies. I add the filter 2000-2017, but I only get movies from 2019.

  7. Filter by Popularity

    Hey there! I'd LOVE for the ability to filter my recommendations by popularity. I'm getting hit with a lot of popular films, and I know I can filter by # of ratings, but I'd love to be able to sit down and say "show me the most highly recommended rare films based on my ratings".

    Thanks!

  8. Remove Recent Releases From Main Page, They Can Be Found Anywhere!

    It isn't difficult to find recently released movies that are popular. EVERY other recommendation site does this, you can find those movies on IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes. I don't use movielens to see whats currently playing in theaters! I mean come on you can just google that stuff.

    Thanks for the feedback. Other users like this feature because viewing movies in the movielens interface offers different information (e.g., predicted ratings). Let’s see if others chime in.

  9. Incentivize tagging, edits, user loyalty

    People love a t-shirt, a button for their backpack, or even a gold star next to their user name. If you're looking to increase user participation in tag maintenance, merch and/or some sort of premium account are the answer. 1000 tags, enjoy your new coffee mug. 5,000 tags, have some embroidered socks.1,000,000 tags, welcome to movielens gold where the movies rate you.

    If this means we will be seeing ads on the site to support an overwhelming obligation to supply a huge influx of chronic taggers with cheap crap, then forget I suggested it.

  10. Movie Details & Options When Hovering Over Cover

    It'd be great if when I hovered over a movie cover I could see a brief synopsis of the film w/additional options (i.e., Add to Wishlist, etc.), instead of having to click on the movie.

  12. refine search with boolean filters

    Could you add a feature to refine search with operators ?
    I mean, it is actually possible to search by multiple tags, for example :

    "eighties, superheroes, drama"

    it would be awesome to be able to be more accurate with boolean operations, eg.

    "eighties +horror +teen"

    "superheroes +vilains -batman"

  15. Have a "Date Watched" field for movies

    It would be great to be able to keep track of when I watched a particular movie, then be able to sort my ratings by this field.

  16. Add a "filter by year"

    I am never interested in movies that were made before 1990. No matter how good the story is, I just can't watch them. I wish there was a way I could say "show me movies between these dates" and then I could pick to only see movies made between 1990 and now. I love this site but it's hard to use when my recommendations are full of old movies that I will never watch. Thank you for considering this request :)

  17. Rating: Predicted vs Average

    As a new user, I started by rating only my favorite movies, so now I'm stuck with recommenders displaying only 4 to 5 stars movies (based on the predicted rating I would give).
    I think there should be an option, in the settings, that allows us to choose to display the average ratings instead of the predicted ones.

  18. Friends.

    I know that setting up a system like this must be very complex. But this page would be perfect if you could "add" other people as friends and see their movie ratings and recommend movies to each other. I've been enjoying quite a bit this site, but I'd love it if I could share it with friends.

  20. Also add filter (Rated movie : show/hide) in "Movies like ***" page !!

    When i see "top picks" page. i have filter like (Rated movie : hide) but when i open "Movie like xyz" page, then i found it should also have same filter. because if i say i want movies like XYZ it shows me list of movies but it also contains some movie i already watched. so i will be more easy for us to find unrated movie. if we set (rated movie : hide).
