Crave Online compared my completist approach of analyzing Seagal movies to the way scholars study Shakespeare. Therefore, OUT FOR JUSTICE = King Lear, I believe. But what if I were to tell you that Steven Seagal never starred in a single movie? (ANONYMOUS 2: STEVEN SEAGAL IS ALSO ANONYMOUS coming soon.) I also like this review because it’s the only one that says the later DTV chapters are more interesting than the ones on the better known movies.
Flixist compared Seagalogy to a book about Celine Dion. Therefore, “My Heart Will Go On” = The Tempest. It was meant as a compliment though, there was a book that reviewer Hubert Vigilla thought was interesting even though it was about Celine Dion. They also were nice enough to do a week of Seagal-themed coverage, using quotes from the book and talking about Lightning Bolt, Songs From the Crystal Cave and stuff like that. They even dug up a commercial that I missed in the book, and were polite enough not to call attention to that fact.
Cool Ass Cinema raves, “Vern’s overpowering adoration for Seagal’s repertoire is at times perplexing!!!”
I don’t know how this works exactly but as of my latest Google search, on Amazon Hot New Releases – Movies (updated hourly), I guess Seagalogy is at #6, right below The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster by Lyle Blackburn, and well above Dark Side of the Moon: How Optimus Prime’s Faith delivered Earth from an Eternal Prison by Miqiuel Banks. EAT A DICK, OPTIMUS PRIME!
Walking Shoe Store – Comfortable Walking Shoe doesn’t have a review of the book, but they do sell the Kindle version. I thought that was kind of weird. But as long as you’re walking around and you’re comfortable I guess you should be reading about Seagal movies.
Also thanks for the nice reviews on Amazon. I suspect one of them was the same Karlos that comments here. I appreciate it.
