Yippee Ki Yay Moviegoer

With the hilarious “instant cult classic” Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal, Vern wrote a book that shook the very foundations of film criticism (then broke their wrists and threw them through a window). Now he’s back, and this time he’s got all ‘the films of badass cinema’ in his sights... Discover how one review earned Vern a wrestling challenge from the film’s director; and how his explosive essay on the PG-13 rating of the fourth Die Hard movie prompted a certain ‘Walter B’ to walk barefoot across the broken glass of movie nerd message boards to respond... Why is the success of Transformers a sign of society on the brink of collapse? Is Mary Poppins a bit like Batman? How does Buñuel’s The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie compare to Jean-Claude Van Damme’s surrealist masterpiece Double Team? And why is Bruce Willis’s album The Return of Bruno of historical significance? From the morality of live action/animated couples to the simple pleasures of movies that Blow Things Up Real Good, Vern has an opinion on many Important Topics, and he’s not shy about sharing them in this, a collection of film criticism that will make all other collections of film criticism suffer from jealousy and low self-esteem.
