Letterboxd – a new social tool for film lovers

Many of you might have been aware of Letterboxd during its invitation-only launch last year.  It’s a social networking tool which allows people to share their ratings, reviews and lists of films they have seen (including TV films).  As I abandoned IMDb after twelve years’ reviewing last year I was pleased to see another tool which allows something a bit more user friendly and interactive for us movie lovers.

So far I have logged over 6,000 films viewed (who knew?) and as you can also assemble a watchlist as you view other people’s profiles, putting together a list of titles I really should have seen by now.  Like Midnight Cowboy.

If you want to try Letterboxd for yourself, you can link it in to your Twitter and Facebook accounts for free, and if you upgrade to a paid account, you can link content with your blog software.  Here’s the link: http://letterboxd.com.
