Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer!

Outlaw Vern, author of Seagology: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal may be the reigning king of maverick film critics. His sprawling reviews are part rant, part personal narrative, and part in depth examination of “badass” cinema. 

His latest collection compiles some of his favorite, and most notorious reviews. Throughout, Vern relates stories about the trouble some of his reviews have gotten him in. Included is the saga of how horror filmmaker, and part-time professional wrestler, David “The Demon” DeFalco challenged him to a wrestling match. 

This is perfect for anyone on your list who thinks Die Hard is the greatest movie ever made and considers Steven Seagal a viable movie star.
