Either way, I never got a chance to try the beta.

Is the year/date function for Diary entries currently not working for anyone else? I want to try to start inputting past years in there, but every time I try clicking the button to adjust the year and date, nothing happens.

Is anyone else encountering this problem?

Okay, restarted my computer and went back to the site and that seemed to fix it.

Yeah, I've started working on 2009. That's actually the only year out of the past few that I have complete records of, apart from last year. I only have from January to mid-May of 2010, and practically nothing for 2011, except for theatrical releases.

I have records from 2008 to the present, but I dunno if I want to put all of that in there. That'd be over 1000 viewings. I could also put in every movie I saw in the theater going back to 1997. That's over 400 there.

Does it bother anyone there's no pages on Letterboxd for stats, like most rated film? Or like a "Imdb Top 250" list? Or am I just not seeing it?

It's interesting to see how people rate their movies in general.

For instance, Dracula and I have a Bell curve (the right way to do it. In fact, they're eerily identical.) Moviebuff, iv3rdawg and Citizen Kane tend towards higher rankings, but Citizen Kane seems to bump up the really high ones to 5 stars with a blind spot for 4 and a half ratings. Dhamon's is inbetween "high rankings" and the Bell curve, but isn't a fan of half-star rankings. PGCooper really likes movies and who knows what Justin is thinking. (Although he has a lower sample size)

Interesting. I do suspect that a lot of these curves are dependent on which movies are being rated. My ratings, for example, are all taken from diary entries going back to 2010 which means that I've never really rated a lot of my favorite films. If I'd had letterboxd back when I was really exploring a lot of the "great" films for the first time there's a good chance that my curve would skew a little more positive.

Gee, way to slam a lot of us, there.

But sort of on this topic, I have to say I'm not really a fan of the 5-star scale. As everyone knows, I (like JBond and Dracula) rate out of four stars, so that means for anything I've given 3 stars and up, I have to adjust a little to fit this scale. Basically I keep all my 2 1/2-star and lower scores the same (though I felt a bit generous with A Good Day to Die Hard), but for example, for my 3-star movies, depending on how much I like them, I give a few of them the equivalent of 3 1/2 on Letterboxd. My regular 3 1/2-star movies then get converted to 4, then my regular 4-star ones either get 4 1/2 or 5.

All this to say I'm not a big fan of the 5-star scale.

I've kind of come to like the 5 star scale. It allows for more wiggle room and I'm not left with only three possible ratings for a film I like.

I'm just starting to go back and add journal entries going back to 2009, so I imagine a lot more negative ratings are going to be added.

Same. After using it on Letterboxd I started implementing it on my blog as well.

That's interesting. I've been doing something like this, like someone trying to learn a new language...

4-star --> 5-star

4 - 4.5/5
3.5 - 4
3 - 3.5
2.5 - 3
2 - 2.5
1.5 - 2
1 - 1.5/1
.5/0 - .5

While I prefer the 4 star rating, that's only because it's the language I speak. I can recognize a rating out of 4. However, after rating 1400 movies at Letterboxd, I think I'm fluent in both of them now and more stars is always better.

I'm usually something more like:

4 - 4.5/5
3.5 - 3.5/4
3 - 3/3.5
2.5 - 2.5
2 - 2
1.5 - 1.5
1 - 1
.5/0 - .5

I've given more wiggle room to the 3, 3.5, and 4 range because that's where a majority of my ratings tend to fall on account of my attempts to avoid bad movies.

I'll probably never abandon the 4-star scale outside of Letterboxd if only because it's the system that's been grandfathered in, but the 5-star system is probably more nuanced.

That conversion makes sense. Maybe I'll start implementing it.
