Yippee Ki Yay Moviegoer

by Vern, Yippee Ki Yay Moviegoer Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Yippee Ki Yay Moviegoer books, 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.

Download Stranded At The Drive In books, Acclaimed writer of This is Uncool and Popcorn turns his attention to the (first ever) look at the teen movie Everyone undergoes some kind of teenage trauma, and a fundamental way of coping, or rite of passage, is the teen movie. Yet until now there has been no book that explores this successful movie sub-genre with any depth. Step forward Garry Mulholland, who, taking his cue from his previous, hugely acclaimed pop culture list books (This is Uncool and Fear of Music), seeks to create a pantheon of the very finest teen movies, or in Garry Mulholland's words: 'I'll be doing what film critics have been loathe to do since the 1950s, and taking the entire subculture of teen movies seriously, making a constant and compelling argument that Grease and A Nightmare on Elm Street tell us a great deal more about modern life and human nature than Citizen Kane and The Godfather.' From Kes to Fame, Badlands to the Breakfast Club, and National Lampoon's Animal House to Twilight, Garry Mulholland re-evaluates a much maligned genre, and brings it all back again: the good, the bad and the traumatic.

Niketown

by Vern, Niketown Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Niketown books, The Niketown job was a long time ago, and Carter Chase is finally out of prison. That's the good news. The bad news: his mother just died. And his brother is missing. And the world is weird now, much more corporate than he remembers it. Can Carter get his act together enough to find his brother and adjust to clean living, or will this whole thing go south as fast as when he robbed that stupid shoe store in the first place? Unfolding in a crassly commercial near future where even our final resting places are covered in advertisements, Niketown is a crime tale, a social satire and a not-so-flattering portrait of the world we live in.
