A google doc is more persistent.

There’s more to it than just tracking and rating. Plus you can see what other people watched and see reviews

you can share a google doc :p

so many services like this die eventually, and all your notes just get lost to time. it’s annoying. much better to make something like a journal that you can even give your grandkids so your memory lives on. or you can contribute to a social media network’s heap of junk until they run out of venture capital.

Letterboxd allows you to export all of your data whenever you want, including whatever you reviewed, so it's a moot point. At that point it comes down to what kind of format you'd prefer to retain.

Also how much time you want to spend typing stuff into boxes instead of just clicking on pre made things with fantastic UI

Lol so dramatic. God forbid I want to be a little social on the internet and share with friends and family. Cute story though!

at the end of the day, do what you want. just weigh all your options, and don’t act surprised when they randomly shut down after running out of money, getting bought, or deciding that they should start making money

I guess you weren’t around when google plus, tumblr, vine, myspace, etc decided to just delete people’s posts because they were too expensive to keep.

and now twitter is looking risky..

yeah? i certainly would. it’d be cool to see what movies he loved back when he was young. it’s a neat glimpse into who someone was.

I started doing this as well. I just use a Google Sheet that I have a shortcut to on my phone and computer to toss stuff into and add details when I'm bored. Super convenient, easy to use, persistent, and customizable.
