Top o’ the Lot: Comic Book Movie Soundtracks

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

Music is the heart and soul of film. Its importance simply cannot be understated. With just a few bars from the score a film can changes the mood completely, and a great soundtrack can take a movie-lover back to those onscreen moments without ever having to turn on a screen. And since we’re all about the geek, our movies of choice are of the comic book persuasion. So, without further ado, we just pick all of those, adore original songs, and can’t help but love the classics, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Comic Book Movie Soundtracks.

Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Sentient Trees

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

Wizard of Oz Trees
These apple-tossing A-holes from the Wizard of Oz did not make the list

The word ‘sentient’ gets thrown around a whole lot, and while the definitions of the word may be a bit mixed up, for the sake of this list, sentience requires only one thing: A thing that isn’t a person acting like a person. In this case, walking, talking, moving of their own volition. You know, stuff that trees just don’t do. There were a ton of options to choose from, and even a bit of contention among the Outright Geeks about my picks. But it’s a slanted and biased list, and I don’t care what Treebeard likes to be called. So, without further ado, we got our photosynthesis on, hit a whole lot of geekdoms, and scream “She’s not a tree!!” in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Sentient Trees.
