Four years after leaving Rotten Tomatoes, founder Senh Duong is launching yet another movie site called MoviesWithButter.com. (He also founded newspaper rack site Wopular.) The website allows movie enthusiasts to track the latest developments of upcoming movies by title, director, actor or development stage.
Movies With Butter aggregates the latest news articles from top movies sites, which are then voted on by the site’s community. News articles that receive the required number of votes are featured on the front page. “It’s like Reddit/Digg for movies, except more exclusive,” says Duong, “and hopefully less prone to top ten lists and link-bait articles.”
Duong is partnered on the site with Binh Ngo, who operated Rotten Tomatoes with him out of his Northern California apartment “before we joined with other friends to turn it into a real business,” says Duong. “We’re reteaming for the sequel, which promises more action, more laughs, and more drama.”
Here’s their mission statement.
