Letterboxd Finally Goes Live… Sign Up Now!

Update: Sorry for the confusion, looks like they are still in “public beta” and are continuing to use beta codes to control their growth for now.

By now you’ve probably heard us mention Letterboxd about a million times on the podcast, but in case you’re still unaware of this nifty little website or have yet to sign up, now’s your chance! The site has officially launched and opened itself up to the general public, which means that begging for beta invites is no longer necessary. Jay, Frank and myself have already been using it for a while, along with our friends over at Row Three, Corey Pierce aka Goon, and many others.

Yes, Letterboxd is yet another place for moviegoers to log their media consumption, but the design is quite elegant and it really seems to encourage discussion within its community. They also have some cool features like the ability to build and share lists and they are promising a public API in the near future. If you’re a fan of movies, it’s definitely worth checking out. Just be warned… before long, you may find yourself hopelessly addicted to the site. On the other hand, for those who have already signed up, what are your thoughts on Letterboxd and how can they improve it?
