About

An entertainment site for everyone.

You either hate critics or you love them. For some, reviews guide their decisions about what’s worth their time and money. For others, they’re too complicated, judgmental, or self-righteous. I agree with both these groups of people. With this site (blog, whatever you want to call it), I’m searching for a happy medium. All someone really needs from reviews is should I check it out or not, and why. Reviews at Rec’d are split into two categories. A film, show, or album gets either “Rec’d” (good) or “Wreck’d” (bad) (and yes for those paying attention, “getting a W” would then be a bad thing. I’m not sorry). Simple as that. I’ll talk about new releases, and some older stuff that I think is well worth your time. Along the way, I’m also going to be self-indulgent and write some conceptual and analytic stuff that you’re welcome to check out if that’s your kind of thing. I’m just glad you’re here.
