  1. Dedicate more time to supply the movie artwork for individual titles.

    After users add new movies from imdb, unfortunately the film artwork does not come along with it. While it's understandable that with so many movies it's difficult to make sure that "Winter Beast" gets its just due there are also new films that don't have cover art (like Bad Teacher). But in both cases it's just a bummer sometimes to look at your list of recently checked movies and see a few with no real 'identity' in the list, even though on imdb the art is readily available.

  4. Incorporate "challenges" into ICM

    By challenges I mean month-long film-watching contests each dedicated to different cinema niches. Challenge have a set of related lists, and only films from them counts. Usually such contests generate a lot of feedback to related films and lists and motivate participants to explore obscure areas of world cinema. An accent on challenges will be a huge bonus to ICM's reputation as a place for open-minded film viewers.

    I took the concept from ICM Board, where this activity is very popular, but some other movie forums also hold challenges. Another model is Karagarga's 'Master of the Month' series.

  5. Create a website-layout that is easier to use on mobile devices.

    OS specific apps are nice, but designing the website-layout in such a way that it displays better on mobile devices (tablets and phones) is perhaps a faster solution.

  6. Update names for recent foreign films that now have an English title.

    There is a sizable issue that I've noticed with newer foreign films that initially had their Romanized names imported in, but have since gotten a proper English name.

    Example: http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/sseo-ni/ vs. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1937339/

  7. Make it possible to create movie checking goals

    The idea is basically to have a simple goal of how many movies you aim to check (similar to the reading goal on Goodreads). This could be on a yearly or monthly basis.

    I think the idea should be as simple as possible, but you could make it more customizable, too. I'd say you should only include feature films, but you could allow yourself other types. Or you could make it "in <x official lists" or something similar.

    In any case, it works well for books and would presumably be a relatively small feature to introduce.

  8. Allow for 4 or 5 star ranking system.

    Instead of "like" "Dislike" or leaving it blank, I wouldn't mind a system that allows me to rate a movie after I watched it. It would also be interesting to see what movie has the highest "star" and lowest "star" rating.

  9. Allow more than one alternative title for films

    Many foreign films are known by more than one name in English. Example Bergman's 'Gycklarnas afton' has the aka 'The Naked Night' but it is widely known as 'Sawdust and Tinsel'.

  11. Import ratings from IMDb.

    It would be great to be able to import your own personal rating for a film from IMDb. Moreover, if we could see what our friends gave certain films, that would be even better.

  12. Multiple Favorite Lists

    Allow users to make multiple private favorite lists when using the "favorite" option. A small drop down menu could give users the options to add movies to a specific list of their own.

    Eg.: "Mark movie as favorite in list...
    Favorite Films
    Favorite Animation
    Favorite 1930s"
    etc.

  13. Make it possible, when comparing profiles, to look at another user's progress on unofficial lists, not just official ones.

    Not each of the thousands of unofficial lists, but have a button on the user's profile page "view his/her progress on your favorite/watchlist lists".

  14. Create a tag for short films

    Having a separate "medatype:short" tag, instead of grouping all shorts with feature films under "mediatype:movie", would often make searching/filtering easier.

  15. Add the ability to compare watchlists with a friend and display movies you both want to see but haven't checked.

    This would be very helpful for picking films for a movie night with friends - personally I would find this more useful than being able to compare checked movies.

    Preferably, the same feature could be applied to recommended movies.

  18. Creation an option to customize your progress tab.

    Like in ICM 1.0. So you have an option to chose which list you (don't) want to see. And if it's at all possible I would like complete tabs to be removable (e.g. the IMDB-tab). Not that you would lose all those checks mind you but just make it invisible.

  20. Settings to Edit the Main-Page (suggest movie at first page etc.)

    I will always see this message at main-page

    "Need more friends? You can find your online friends from other sites or you can add friends manually. "

    bcs I didnt add any friends I dont use ICM to find my friends or see what movie they like I just want to discover new movies.

    So I would like to have a personal settings for main-page, like a 'random movie' or 'movie suggestion list' instead of "Here's what your friends have been up to lately".
