Find Redbox movies ranked by Rotten Tomatoes scores

You might have heard of Redbox, a popular movie rental kiosk located in stores around many towns. They rent movies for $1 and can be either pre-ordered online or selected right at the kiosk. You may also have heard of a website called RottenTomatoes.com, which scores movies based on user and critic reviews. But what you may not have heard of yet is a nifty little application called RottenBoxes.com, that mashes up both of these tools. It tracks local Redbox kiosks in your area on a map and then ranks the movies available by the Rotten Tomatoes score. The Rotten Tomatoes scores may not be the perfect way to evaluate films, but they are handy when you don't have any background information.

Here's a peek at the interface, which is super usable and clean:

Just enter your ZIP code, click the nearest location, and you're ready to either pick your movie with a little help from the reviewing community at large or watch it on Amazon, as each film also has a link to its spot on Amazon Instant Video. Plus, Redbox tweeted about it!)

  1. Thanks for featuring my site, Offbeat Home! The screenshots are a little out of date, but I've been changing the site almost daily since it's still so new.

    I think the new design is clearer, more intuitive, and more mobile-friendly, but I'm interested in what the Offbeat community has to say.

    Thanks again,

    Joe
