Vern, the self-styled 'outlaw film critic' is described by Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro as "equal parts Hell's Angels and Pauline Kael... a national treasure!" 

Now Vern unleashes his magnum opus: an in-depth study of the world's only aikido instructor turned movie star/director/writer/blues guitarist/energy drink inventor, the ass-kicking auteur Steven Seagal. 

"A book that'll shake the very foundations of film criticism, break their wrists and then throw them through a window."

About the Author:

The writer known only as Vern is loved for his unorthodox reviewing style and his expertise in "the films of Badass Cinema." His review of the slasher movie Chaos earned him a wrestling challenge from its director; his explosive essay on the PG-13 rating of Live Free or Die Hard prompted Bruce Willis himself to walk barefoot across the broken glass of movie message boards to respond.

Review:

"Equal parts Hell's Angels and Pauline Kael, Vern is a National Treasure!!!" - Guillermo Del Toro 

"Film criticism genuinely gets no better than this. I would be jealous if I didn't enjoy reading him so damn much" - Ain't It Cool News 

"We can't believe this actually exists, but the world is certainly a better place for it." - New York Magazine 

"Uproariously funny... the film book I never knew I always wanted to read." - nerve.com 

"Seagalogy is a raucous, thigh-slapping and informative read that can murder spare time as easily as Steven Seagal can break peoples' necks. In short Vern's Seagalogy is an unexpected gem." - mania.com 

"With the obsession of a fan and the authoritative tone of a professor, Vern takes us through every film with attention to plot, themes, dialogue, influences and even politics... " - denofgeek.com 

"Seagalogy not only made me laugh my ass off, but sent me to Amazon to buy some of the early Seagal DVDs I didn't already own. This book is an instant cult classic." - Bookgasm
