A few months back I got my hands on a copy of World Gone Wild: A Survivors Guide To Post-Apocalypse Movies, by David J. Moore (check out my review of the book by clicking here). Moore knocked my socks off with his seemingly endless knowledge of genre flicks and impressive list of interviews. The man knows his shit and fortunately for us he is back with another reference book: The Good, The Tough & The Deadly! This time he’s diving into the world of action flicks and I am excited to add this one to my collection. And as an added bonus, SJP’s own Corey Danna has contributed to this one as well (word has it he wrote over 400 reviews in the book! The man is a machine!). David and Corey both (along with a ton of other contributors and stars from the movies) will be both be at signing event in L.A. on Sunday June 26th! So if you live in the area grab yourself a copy of the book and get it signed! Click the link below to pre-order (or order depending on when you are reading this) now!
About the Book: This massive study on action movies and stars from around the world, from the 1960s to the present, is filled with more than 1500 in-depth movie reviews that cover every action star who’s crossed over from the world of martial arts, sports, professional wrestling, and stunt work.
Exploding with beautiful images, over 70 exclusive interviews, and a thorough action star index, this one-of-a-kind movie reference book and comprehensive fan guide features reviews by the author, Corey Danna, Zack Carlson (Destroy All Movies!!!
