"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Soundtracking: FYC 5 Original Song Outliers

byChris Feil

In lieu of a regular deep dive into the soundtrack of one film,Soundtracking is indulging in some For Your Consideration tracks before the season narrows down to a few contenders.Naturally,all of the talk for original songs this season has been gobbled up byA Star Is Bornwith some hopes being thrown towards the likes ofMary Poppins Returns,Black Panther,and even Radiohead's Thom Yorke forSuspiria.I'll unpack the field once Oscar reveals its shortlist on December 17 (remember that quiet news item that the Academy will be announcing song and score shortlists all at once along with such categories as visual effects?).

But the outsiders deserve some love too,so allow me to champion a few solid tracks...

Review: "Pitch Perfect 3"

By Spencer Coile

Pitch Perfectcould not have arrived at a better time.Its release in 2012 was met with solid reviews and box office figures,but that was just the beginning for the fandom that would ensue.It told the story of the Barden Bellas,an all-female university a cappella group led by Anna Kendrick vying for the top spot at Nationals.Blending Top 40 hits and an underdog narrative was effective.Soon,you could not escape the presence of singing groups and acapella wordplay ("aca-scuse me?").

The arrival ofPitch Perfect 2in 2015 proved that the Bellas were no fluke.The second film dipped in quality,but was a worthy successor.Now,in 2017,Pitch Perfect 3is the (supposedly) final installment...

Beauty vs Beast: Guess Who's Coming

Jason fromMNPPhere wishing everybody a HappyGolden Globe NominationDay - I hope everybody's favorite thing got a nomination (and since everybody's favorite thing is clearly Helen Mirren I know it's true).We're taking our "Beauty vs Beast"series to a film that did well but maybe not as well as expected (no director,no screenplay) - Jordan Peele's masterful horror comedyGet Out,which we just happened to re-watch last night in an effort to reaquaint ourselves with a movie that was fading from memory.

And I'm glad I did because some of the issues I'd had the first time (I'd found its metaphor a little scattered) came more into focus,and I was reminded of its many strengths - Peele juggles all sorts of genre and tonal trickery with ease,and I love every single performance in the film (yes even whatever Caleb Landry Jones is doing).So much so that choosing the right opponent today for Daniel Kaluuya's justly nominated work in the lead gave me pause - arguments could be made to face him against Catherine Keener or Betty Gabriel here.But ultimately I laugh harder at Allison Williams eating Fruit Loops and listening to theDirty Dancingsoundtrack than I do at any other joke,and so...

Whose team are you on?

PREVIOUSLYRooster done got himself trampled against Mattie inourTrue Gritpolllast week - Hailee Steinfeld took over 3/4s of your vote.Saidcal roth:

"Steinfeld is B R I L L I A N T in this."The soul already fled the body"or something like that.She reminded me a young Jodie Foster in the way she is fierce above all things,without even realizing she isn't that strong.That category fraud still stings."

Beauty vs Beast: Grit's the Word

Jason fromMNPPhere wishing the actor Jeff Bridges a happy 68th birthday today with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"poll.What's your favorite performance from Bridges?Mine is far and away his performance in Peter Weir's wildly underrated 1993 plane-crash survivor dramaFearless,but that movie doesn't lend itself well to this series.So instead we'll go with something more recent,namely his turn as "Rooster Cogburn"in the Coens' 2010 update ofTrue Grit.Don't you wish he'd won his Oscar for this rather thanCrazy Heart?And we'll pit him against his fine co-star and co-nominee Hailee Steinfeld.Good luck with this one!

PREVIOUSLYLast week twas everybody's current favorite momma dramaLady Bird'sturn in the hot seat,and daughter came out victorious - Saorsie Ronan went all Baller / Anarchist and took 55% of your vote.Saidchasm301,giving me a good chuckle:

"Lady Bird is basically the most instantly iconic teen movie character since Cher inClueless.(Ok maybe Regina George or Tracy Flick).She gave this victory to herself.It was given to her by her and me too."
