Any Letterboxd users here?

Hey all. I’m sure there’s a lot of new users making their way to Tildes this week. Let’s share some Letterboxd profiles to get the community going. I guess I’ll be first! Follow me if you have similar taste and I’ll do the same: https://letterboxd.com/plo/

      You could link it for a week or so, and when this thread gets buried, go and delete your comment here. You might pick up some followers and be able to follow other Tilders. Just a thought.

          I use Letterboxd quite a bit with 254 movies logged so far this year. I only share it with people I know personally. Sharing it with random people online doesn't appeal much to me either. I don't see how that's any different than just blindly following people from reviews in-app.

    I use Trakt for that same purpose. I am more of a TV than movie buff, but I like having both tracked in the same place. It also matters to me that plays are tracked automatically when played via Plex.

      I don’t use Trakt but I don’t follow much TV. I didn’t know it tracks via Plex automatically. That’s quite useful actually!

        You need to set it up in the settings but it's super easy. Used to be a plugin, now both Trakt and Plex have this natively so you just need to put the correct webhook in the settings.

      I followed you back. The Cranes Are Flying is a masterpiece and Kieslowski is my cinematic hero.

      Oh man love Tree of Life. I feel like the hype for that has died off but it really deserves more recognition.

        Absolutely. Have you seen the longer cut that's included on the recent Criterion release? I wouldn't say it's better than the original, but it's always a treat to see how Malick thought about...

        Absolutely. Have you seen the longer cut that's included on the recent Criterion release? I wouldn't say it's better than the original, but it's always a treat to see how Malick thought about editing things differently. The Criterion release of The New World has three different cuts!

    I like the site and its UI, but since I have a project-driven personality, I love the list-making feature of the site, allowing me to have a visual representation of my Watching Projects. Like this one coming up:

        I feel similarly to your review of it! It's beautifully shot but I simply couldn't relate to the movie at all.

          I kinda agree in a sense. I didn't necessarily relate to the movie in the sense that I didn't lose a parent to suicide, but I felt that the story was masterfully told. All the stylistic choices made by the director were really cool... they never even disclosed the actual story/plot that was taking place. It was great in that sense.

    I don’t use it to interact with the community but mainly just use it as a log for movies I’ve watched (or attempted to watch). https://boxd.it/bf0D

    Love me some Letterboxd. I've been using it as my primary means to keep track of movies I watch and want to watch, for about a year. I enjoy that I can follow reviewers and critics I like, and write my own reviews when the mood strikes. I even paid for the premium tier, to support a place I like, and in order to easily see what's available to stream or rent, from my watchlist.

    That being said, I'm not gonna link my profile here, haha.

    Big fan of Letterboxd! Personally just use it to track and rate the movies I watch, I almost never write a review, but I follow a few people and enjoy the reviews they write. https://boxd.it/4WKcZ
