From "Above the Law" to his guest appearance on Channel 4's "Friday Night Project", his entire career is covered in Vern's inimitable style.As Vern himself puts it, "Seagalogy" is "a book that will shake the very foundations of film criticism, break their wrists and then throw them through a window."

Seagalogy Reviews

"* "Equal parts Hell's Angels and Pauline Kael, Vern is a National Treasure!!!" Guillermo Del Toro, director of Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy * "Film criticism genuinely gets no better than this. I would be jealous if I didn't enjoy reading him so damn much" 'Moriarty', Ain't It Cool News Editor "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"

About Vern

As a frequent writer for Ain't It Cool News, Vern has gained notoriety 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 nerd message boards to respond. Guillermo Del Toro, the director of PAN'S LABYRINTH, called Vern "a national treasure."
