'A scathingly irreverent but sure-footed challenge to snooty critics [...] Vern's distinctive style, masking merciless wit with foul-mouthed faux-naivete, is consistently amusing.' --Total Film
'Vern's tone is conversational but informative, funny and refreshing. His lengthy commentary on movies many critics often dismiss brightens the corners of pop culture.' --USA Today
'This is a book that's full of genuine enthusiasm and love. It's infectious' --Cinematical
About the Author
As a frequent writer for Ain't It Cool News, Vern has gained notoriety for his unorthodo 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 nerd message boards to respond.

So basically Vern reviews the films that most folk go to see i.e the summer blockbusters,he watches films that we've probably seen and wish we hadn't i.e Garfield and films that we've seen and don't really know why(Action Jackson,Stone Cold)The reviews often give away plot and often go off at tangents.One look at the review of Brokeback Mountain shows what I'm trying to say....'It's not about gay cowboys.It's about gay shepherds.They herd sheep...'
Anyway,you won't always agree with Vern and surely that's the point of reviews,but you will have an enjoyable time reading his text and you just might want to dust off your collection of 80's action movies. Now where is my signed photo of Brian Bosworth.......
