  • A man has a colorfully muddy face in a still from Survivor Season 43

    Recommendations: Survivor and Angus

    Survivor has not been on the air for 43 years (though it has been on for 22, which is a heck of a long time!). I remember well that summer it premiered, back in 2000, not because I was swept up in it or watched it all, but because everyone else was when I wasn’t […] More

  • A woman sits in a living room while a man stands across from her, in Barbarian

    Recommendations: Barbarian and Ghost in the Machine

    My understanding is that the term ‘barbarian’ originally just meant someone who isn’t Greek, which is a little xenophobic. I’m not telling you to avoid the word, though, or saying it’s a problem in the title of the film Hawk is here to recommend to you this week (Barbarian). You don’t have to care about […] More

  • Anthony Hopkins talks while wearing a suit in The Virtuoso

    Recommendations: House of the Dragon and The Virtuoso

    Oh, dear reader, I’m so frightfully sorry! Here I promise you Larks & Recs each week and when you’ve dutifully checked for our missives these many days, you haven’t found them. Sorry we’ve let you down. This week I’ve got a little recommendation for you of House of the Dragon as spectacle, and Paul’s here […] More

    Recommendations: Rollerball and Ambulance

    Welcome back!

This week we’ve got a pair of films for you: Paul recommends Rollerball (1975) and Hawk gives us the more […] More

  • Nathan Fielder stands looking at an array of screens in The Rehearsal

    Recommendations: The Rehearsal and The Black Phone

    We’re here each week (or most weeks) with recommendations from a collection of our staff. These won’t always be about new things (though sometimes they are), but they will always be about things that we think are worth your time. This week, Caemeron recommends Nathan Fielder’s The Rehearsal and Paul suggests answering the call of […] More

  • Milchick stands smiling with a cart of melon in Severance
    in ,

    Recommendations: Severance and Driven (2001)

    German chocolate cake is named after an English-American named Sam German. He invented the chocolate, not the cake, though modern recipes for the cake rarely insist on using this kind of sweet baker’s chocolate. I guess it’s still a German chocolate cake when it’s not made with German’s chocolate. This week, Clay’s finally gotten around […] More

  • A scrawny figure lurches forward with fire behind it in Mad God

    Recommendations: Mad God, Waiting Room, and The Card Counter

This week, Hawk recommends Phil Tippet’s long-awaited Mad God, Caemeron’s been listening to Fugazi on repeat, and Paul thinks you might enjoy The Card Counter. Film Recommendation: Mad God Hawk Ripjaw: Phil Tippet, legendary […] More
