New action movie book celebrates the wildest, funniest films in the genre

It’s here, action movie fans (well, not so much here or anywhere just yet). Mine’s Bigger Than Yours! the 100 Wackiest Action Movies is available for pre-order through Amazon. Spanning the globe and genres, we break down the likes of Miami Connection, GetEven (sic), Wired to Kill, Deadly Prey and many many more (96 more, to be precise). We’ve highlighted highlighted action genre gems with all of the necessary components for greatness: Heroes! Villains! Henchmen!

We have shootouts in abandoned warehouses, choice zingers spanning “I’m going to kill you LAST” to “here’s a quarter, buy yourself a personality,” rambling spiels (“I’m telling these motherfuckers that if they continue killing our children to make their precious millions that they deposit in their secret Swiss bank accounts, counselor, before your last suit even gets off the court clerk’s desk, I’ll have their stinking bodies in garbage bags and ship them back to Japan for fertilizer.”) Wilhelm screams, heroes hanging off choppers (what’s with chopper pilot lateness? they never time it just right), shooting villains off fire escapes, and getting teary-eyed over wallet photos of loved ones…

Our pal Brian Trenchard-Smith (Strike of the Panther/Stuntrock) penned the foreword. If you enjoyed your last book, Death by Umbrella, there’s a reasonable chance you’ll dig this one too.

Our new action movie book is here!

In case you were wondering why this site hasn’t been updated to the extent that you’re used to, wonder no more! We are pleased to announce that our new book is available for pre-order (“pre-order” sounds like a George Carlin gripe about “pre-boarding” but hey. Order, pre-order, whatever you can).

Mine’s Bigger Than Yours: The 100 Wackiest Action Movies is our paean to the glorious genre that is action film, and has a wonderful foreword by Brian Trenchard-Smith (Strike of the Panther/Stunt Rock). We’ve been working diligently to make it as funny and comprehensive as possible, and it will give not only Seagal, JCVD their due, but also genre stalwarts like Vic Diaz, Cameron Mitchell and the incredible Reb Brown.

So, if you’re a fan of people hanging off the sides of helicopters, shootouts in abandoned warehouses, choice zingers delivered pre-ass whuppin’, heavily fortified island drug dealer compounds and terrible movies lensed in the Philippines, pick up a copy! It’ll be available in store in September/October.
