Quick Rotten
Rotten Tomatoes scores can be very helpful when trying to figure out what movie to watch, but I find their website to be incredibly slow and frustrating to navigate. Since Rotten Tomatoes has an API, I decided to make Quick Rotten as a way to quickly look up Rotten Tomatoes scores and get a sense of what critics think of new releases. My friend John Holdun then chipped in to make it look pretty.

This is great. A couple of suggestions:

- add a version for new DVD releases (I use RT to figure out what to download)
- make it sort by rating, by default (I want to see what's good right at the top)

Nice tool. A couple of thoughts...

- Red font for good movies and green for poor ones isn't intuitive, though it makes more sense when there are actual tomatoes to look at

- It would be nice to trim the long lists by just showing the good stuff by default
