A Twitter friend of mine (@AnneEveratt) introduced me to this beautiful website called Letterboxd. This streamlined film site does more than let you review films, you also create and maintain lists and keep up with what your friends are watching. It’s pretty much the GoodReads for movies. I love it! Everyone begins with a list of films they’ve watched and a ‘Watchlist’ for movies they want to see. After that, you can create a list of whatever you want with the option of making it public/private or even numbered.
It’s clean. I think that’s the main draw for this website. It’s easy to use and looks just as simple. So simple that I made my own list – Featured Horror! This list includes some of my favorite horror movies, mainly ones that I feel should be featured in some way. Films like Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre are my favorites so obviously they’re on the list but everyone knows about those. I hope films like Pontypool and Amusement will get a little recognition, too. Satan’s Little Helper, for instance, is more of a dark comedy but it’s without a doubt creepy. Bizarre even.
Anyway, I hope more people decide to sign up, I love keeping up with what everyone is watching!
