A Better Queue sorts Netflix with Rotten Tomatoes ratings

Netflix logo

Although Netflix has put quite a bit of effort into its recommendation engine, it's hard to escape the feeling that you're just not seeing the best video their catalog has to offer. Sometimes you don't want personalized suggestions, you just want to know what's good from a more objective viewpoint. Enter A Better Queue, which is a simple mashup of Netflix and Rotten Tomatoes that allows you to view what's available to watch instantly from Netflix in a list sorted by Tomatometer ratings. You can filter by year, genre, and rating — which makes for a much simpler interface than instantwatcher, another Netflix tools that hooks into your queue.

Developer Dave Jachimiak has promised that more features will be coming soon, including the ability to add directly to your queue, more intelligent use of ratings, an improved UI, and a mobile browser version.

Thanks, Steve!
