Matt Cutts, an engineer at Google posted a great wishlist tip:
Make a wishlist with keyword (say) 2004 and restrict it to the genre of Movies. Presto: browsing the wishlist gives you all the movies from 2004.
I often forget that the wishlist functionality is so flexible and so deep. Ever since I got a 16:9 aspect ratio TV, I've had a wishlist for movies/letterbox but it sounds like I could add in 2004 or 2005 and get just recent films.
I kind of wish that season passes and wishlists supported "greater than" or "less than" when adding criteria. For instance, often when I discover a new show, if I set a season pass, it will grab every new and old show, when sometimes I just want the current season of that show so that I'm not seeing things out of order ("give me all copies of 'six feet under' that debuted in 2005"). For this new movie wishlist, I wish I could say "give me all letterboxed movies that are less than five years old".
