Ain't It Cool News (

Reminder!! The Deadline For Vern's Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer Video Contest Is Approaching!!

Merrick here...
..with a quick reminder re: the rapidly encroaching deadline for Vern's Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer contest; said contest heralds the arrival of his new book called, astonishingly enough, YIPPEE KI-YAY MOVIEGOER (available HERE). My copy of the tome just arrived - I was hoping to share a few more details about it with you, but I've only had about four minutes to glance through it before posting this article. However, it seems to be choc full o' full of Vernness. If you love his superlative reviews and perspectives here on the site, this title can't be recommended highly enough. As mentioned above, the fine folks over at Titan Books have launched a video contest - essentially a tribute/homage to "badass cinema". Its deadline is Tuesday May 18th - which isn't a great deal of time. However, I've seen the amazing and creative vids you guys are capable of generating in very short order, so I'd say to you - go for it! It's really not too late! You can find the original contest announcement HERE, and specific rules/terms/other details HERE. So, get to it, kick ass, and...above all...have fun!

    You Shot Cyrus

    by Vern

    With all due respect, buddy, I've been writing here for ten years and this is my second acclaimed film book. You, according to Google, are possibly a vegan bass player from Brazil who has written a handful of brief, smartass talkbacks. Nothing wrong with that but between the two of us I'm pretty sure it's you who would have to be called "some douche."<p> But I forgive you anyway. Just consider not coming to a place for writing about movies and shitting on the very idea of writing about movies. People might mistake you for a douche.

    Why does anyone even bother?

    by TheContinentalOp

    Fucking with Vern is like calling yourself a douchebag.

  • May 14, 2010, 3:09 p.m. CST

    hehe you dont fuck with Vern

  • May 14, 2010, 4:12 p.m. CST

    nice one Vern

    by Cedar_Room

  • It makes more sense that way, at least.

  • May 14, 2010, 9:28 p.m. CST

    Vern is the best thing on this website

    by TachyonCreme

  • May 14, 2010, 9:37 p.m. CST

    Well done as always, Vern

    by BubbaDestructo

    Always a pleasure reading your comments. <p> What's your thoughts on Seagal's appearance in Machete? Seen any of this flick yet?

  • May 14, 2010, 9:42 p.m. CST

    Ya, the talkbalks have gone to shit, no respect anymore

    by bullet3

    Thankfully Vern has his own site now, so I've noticed a lot of the older, more normal talkbalkers have gone over there, and real film discussion can survive.

  • May 15, 2010, 12:23 a.m. CST

    Omg Vern told me

    by I_shot_Cyrus

    Really why don't you go out and try film making instead of writing kiss ass reviews of fags who are too chickenshit to make their own art. But hey I'm the douche so fuck me. What do I know.

  • May 15, 2010, 1:36 a.m. CST

    Come on Verno, Vernnnnn

    by I_shot_Cyrus

    Way to be the fat kid from Stand by me. I guess your the nerd who wishes he'd fuck Mystique

    by Vern

    I'm not sure what half of that is supposed to mean, but your English is better than my Portuegese so I forgive you. Just chill out though buddy, you're going around insulting me and gay people for no reason.<p> What I want you to do is find a mirror, look at yourself, and say YOU, CYRUS... YOU ARE SOMEBODY. And then I want you to go out there and act like it. You don't have to be like this anymore. You are a human being and you have a right to dignity. You can contribute something positive to the world. If you can't do it on the computer then unplug it and find a better way. We will miss you like a motherfucker but we will soldier on comforted by the knowledge that you're out there somewhere finally getting your shit together. For yourself, for your family, for mankind. And we will never forget you.<p> I guarantee you you are better than this. Believe me, I've been down in the dumps myself, but I pulled myself up out of the shit. With hard work and humility you can do it too. I'm not fuckin around, I believe in you. You can do this. We are all pulling for you.<p> thanks Cyrus

  • May 15, 2010, 3:14 a.m. CST

    Yeah Cyrus, stop being a shitstick.

    by Doctor_Strangepork

    We mustn't dwell... no, not today. We CAN'T. <br> <br> Not on Rex Manning day.

    An unwritten AICN Rule:

    by Rocco Curioso

    Thou Shalt Not Rip On Vern In Talkback, lest he tear you into little bite-sized pieces.... Just DON'T DO IT!.<P>Seriously, dudes... it's tantamount to walking into a mosque and telling Allah to get stuffed. It is considered heresy 'round these parts.<P>Having made that crystal clear: I am now the proud owner of a first edition copy of "Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer!", and look forward to reading it with somewhat more patience than I did "Seagalogy" (tore through that masterpiece in 3 excellent days).

  • May 15, 2010, 10:24 a.m. CST

    I apologize :(

    by I_shot_Cyrus

    Your right, I've been spewing out all this venm when the real person I'm mad at most is myself. I wish I was more successful. I wish I had my own cool site where I could plug any piece of shit that came out my colon. And the fan boys would loveme for it. And if any of them ever got out of line I would destroy them in a way that make me look like the hero. Besides a book about what I think about movies isn't self congratulatory masturbation. It's just me stroking my cock.

  • May 15, 2010, 11:29 a.m. CST

    Mr Cyrus

    by johnnyangelheart

    Vern has written three books. I think that's probably about three more than the average AICN talkbacker. If you don't respect the man, then at least prove that you are better than he is. So check back with us when you've finished your fourth book. We'll be waiting. Happy writing.

  • May 15, 2010, 2:19 p.m. CST

    No problem Cyrus

    by Vern

    Apology accepted. It takes a real man to admit that you were wrong, especially when you were so hugely, embarrassingly wrong. But now your conscience can be clear. Like I said we're all pulling for you buddy. Good luck on your journey. Drop me a line if you ever need somebody just to listen or whatever.<p> your friend, Vern

  • May 15, 2010, 7:32 p.m. CST

    Vern I just read the first 7 pages on Amazon

    by theGoldbergV

    and have now ordered it. Great stuff, although I thought 300 sucked. I'm hoping you got Clive Owen in Shoot Em Up in there, cuz he is the epitome of badass in that movie <p><P>And nice troll destruction, as usual

    Yippe kai Eh Mr. Falcon!

    by necros

    Vern brilliant book again! Finally got it after waiting a month. Bookstore in Canada had problems with the supplier or something? Have been reading Seagalogy for the last couple years. Makes me laugh everytime. This book I thought was only on Bruce Willis, but when I open up the cover and read the index I started laughing to know it reviews alot of my favorite movies. Wish it went into Van Damme a little more, but keeps me entertained. The Ninja Vengeance review is hilarious. Trying to find it now to watch. Id love to hear your thoughts on that sheit movie The Barbarians. Thanks again for a wicked book that will keep me entertained till you release a new one.
