I always had a little notebook in which I jotted down and starred every movie I watched. At some point over the years (or more precisely, after I had kids) I stopped keeping track, and at my current advanced age, I probably couldn’t name the last five films I’ve seen. This is where letterboxing comes in.
This social app works similarly to the Goodreads website, but for movies. You can use it to log all the movies you watch, give them a star rating, write a review (if you so choose), and share your profile with other users (although you can keep your viewing information private too). You can follow other users on the site to see what your friends and favorite movie critics are watching or catch up on the trends.
Like JustWatch, Letterboxd has a robust free version, but if you’re willing to pay around $ 1.50 a month ($ 19 a year), you can remove ads, enjoy more personalized stats and sorting options, and keep your watchlists in JustWatch to let you get a notification when something you want to watch is added to a streaming service you subscribe to.
