Movie Playlists

Okay before all the naysayers and/or devs nix this request, I ask you hear me out.

 

What I'm proposing is a playlist creation and sorting convention for movies (similar to collections but without the tie to physical movie folders) where you can set essentially collections or multiple movies in a viewing order. I would love the ability to "brand" these playlists much like actual movie and collection titles with a poster and backdrop art (ie. The Marvel Cinematic Universe or Tolkien's Middle Earth)

 

I thought about this because my children and I love Marvel movies and they keep asking and wanting to watch the movies in order to better see and realize the continuity in the films (there's like how many films now?) and I thought if MB3 did this it would be cool but I don't want the movies to be stuck in a collection either as I'm the type that likes being able to scroll through every title. Then when contemplating doing this post, I (as usual) went over all the reasons this would and wouldn't be a good idea and all I could come up with aside from the usual "we already have something like that" was in the instances of prequels or movies where the naming convention or date of production doesn't coincide with the actual cinematic sequence of story-telling and events or the movie is one of many depictions of a multiple novels starring on central character (ie. Alex Cross, Along Came A Spider, etc.)/\.

 

I dont know, maybe its not that good of an idea... just a thought either way.

We already have this...

 

However, right at the moment, I can't figure out how to create a new one other than via the "select" screen.  @@Luke, didn't the Playlists view used to have a menu option to add a new one and to add titles to an existing one...?
