About me

After serving in the Military for 6 years I managed to finally follow my dreams of finishing school for Software Engineering.

The road to success has been long, with countless hours studying while stuck on 24 hour duty, after all if I'm being forced to stay awake for 24 hours straight why not spend that time moving closer to my goal?

I learned a lot during those lonely nightly where I can feel myself getting so tired that I start hallucinating.

A Movie application, totally not IMDB, or Rotten Tomatoes

When a user visits Rancid Tomatillos, they will first see the movie listing with title, and rating, once a movie is chosen it will provide additional details such as the date of the release, the budget and revenue, even a trailer! (if the movie has a trailer), if the user wants to look for a specific movie, they can always enter the movie name in the search bar, when you are done and want to see another movie just click on our logo to be taken back to the main page. I hope you find this site entertaining and useful, Happy Watching!
