Bay/Roth hit back

04.09.2008
Let the circus continue! I suppose itís Uwe Boll week here at JoBlo.com, and why not? The man is an endless well of entertainment, and weíre not talking about his films. Come to think of it, him making a mockery out of cinema is almost worth it when sideshows like this are produced from it. Earlier today you saw the video Boll made defending himself against an online petition (and if you haven't, please do), by asking his three fans to make a petition supporting him, and by inexplicably trashing Michael Bay, Eli Roth and George Clooney. Well now Roth and Bay have responded to Bollís maniacal rant. Roth called Bollís comments ďthe greatest compliment ever," while Bay wrote this on his official message board:

ďI find people who rant like that - calling shit about both me, and George Clooney - comes from someone screaming because he is not being heard. He is obviously a sad being. When you ask Ďdo I care?í Not in the slightest.Ē

Michael Bay himself has been somewhat of a punching bag for film fanís but thereís no question the man has talented. And when put next to Boll, the man is Fellini.

Extra Tidbit: Is anyone starting to feel bad for Boll? No one deserves this.

Roth blows!

Boll sucks, but Roth is almost as bad! Cabin Fever was the biggest piece of shit, Hostel was pretty cool, but the second one was worse than any Boll film. Clooney and Bay are gods!

Ready for a sterotype? Most Germans are hardheaded. This guy is German, most likely of the large percentage that are hardheaded, as well as being stupid and a complete jerkoff. That being said and coupled with DRETHEDOG and PORKCHOPEXPRESS'S info, he's going to continue processing fecal matter into film for quite some time despite the utter nausea 99.9% most moviegoers get at the mere mention of his name. Now and forever, FUCK UWE BOLL.

If you read his Wikipedia page it says that he is able to make these movies because he gets German investors and appearently there is some German thing that says if a movie is made by a German in Germany it can be 100% written off in Taxes therefore any money made is 100% profit. We need to blame Germany for Uwe's crap!

Michael Bay is a good director, the only problem with him is that he has shitty writers, except for Pearl Harbor, which is one of my favorite films.


- And his..directing.

SO ...

... George Clooney had nothing to say? Probably because he's the smartest and doesn't need to reply to Boll's statements. When someone says his movies suck, he probably looks at that golden statue and says :"Yeah , right". Now, that's a feeling ;)

EWW BOLL??

Isn't it funny that the most hated director in Hollywood history has a name like Uwe Boll? As in Eww Boll...or Eww, Boll! Get it? No? Anyway, this is so entertaining. I wish I could say that Boll's comments were just a part of his insulting sense of humor...but this is THE Uwe Boll we're talking about. The man is a heartless lil' f**kbag who destroys the dreams of millions of gaming fans by adapting Alone In The Dark and House Of The Dead and turning them into, well, Uwe Boll movies. There's no

The man is a heartless lil' f**kbag who destroys the dreams of millions of gaming fans by adapting Alone In The Dark and House Of The Dead and turning them into, well, Uwe Boll movies. There's no other way to sum it up as to how bad these flicks are. Plus, I think Bay's right when he says Boll just needs that lil' bit of attention. It's not easy when you have a petition against you. He had it coming anyway. So with all due disrespect to Mr.Boll...go f**k yourself you crazy piece of s**t!

As for Uwe Boll fuck him, does he really think that people will go to Postal, than Indiana Jones? Try Eli Roth is shit, but he's freaken Hitchhcock compared to Uwe Boll. I hope Uwe Boll dies (film wise not actual death). Now if he compared himself, to those two assholes who brought use Meet the Spartans than I think we can all agree on that

Stop feeding fire people, it's what he wants!!!

I will never forgive him for destroying my favorite games in to his movies, House of the Dead and Alone in the Dark.

As for Postal, it will be the last Uwe Boll film I will see, but it will have to be DVD, not in theaters.

It's very simple, Boll is a " director " with absolutely no love for film. I bet he glances at his dailies thinking " how quickly can I get this done so I can get it straight to dvd and make a quick buck? " He hides behind this facade that he isn't interested in " George Clooney political bullshit " as he puts it but in reality he isn't capable of directing the flow of his own piss stream. Why he gets funding for these godawful tumours he calls movies is anyone's guess . One million signatures

One million signatures or not he won't stop commiting horrible crimes to cinema so the real people to blame are the people who pay to see his shit and the idiots who give him money to make it. Shame on any respectable actor who wants their resume stained forever for appearing in any bullshit movie he chooses to vomit up next

That is all

It comes...

... to what I will do with my money in the future. Bay will get some guaranteed. Boll on the other hand will never get another penny. For the rest of my life. Unless he starts directing lesbian XXX porno, and probably even then because I think he could manage to fuck that up.

Michael bay?

Not to call Michael Bay a hypocrit, but didn't he lash out a movie-goers in general with an open letter in the New York Times, when his "Island" flopped?

"Am I a lone voice of sanity crying out in a universe gone mad?" wrote Bay in his letter article entitled "What Has Our Society Come To When March Of The Penguins Is The Blockbuster Hit Of The Summer?"
(link to the article [link]

Uwe Boll should affiliate himself to Michael Bay, since both of them are the only geniuses in the business, ">

I actually love this whole fiasco, so ridiculous and so entertaining. Boll sucks in general, but I tell you what, I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE "POSTAL" (namely to see Dave Foley's cock, and I don't even swing that way, I just respect Dave Foley enough to want to see his balls). I just have to say though "Michael Bay himself has been somewhat of a punching bag for film fanís but thereís no question the man has talented." JoBlo writers, please proof-read, this happens too often and its just a bit

Sure, Boll thinks this whole thing is hilarious, but he's really slapping the face of every aspiring director out there who's trying to make it in the industry. How can there be any hope when you have a douchebag like Boll saying "ha, ha" to everyone as he makes terrible films for millions of dollars that nobody sees? Michael Bay makes some visually impressive -- and more importantly, lucrative -- films and he is actually a very talented artist. Boll's only talent is pissing people off without

Uwe got what he wanted

by having any one pay attention.
Im sure what will happen next is a reveal by Oprah that Uwe is in fact the long lost brother of Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg. Im mean, the way its going, its bound to be the truth.

I'm not afraid to admit that I hated Hostel. For various reasons, I didn't like it, and thus, I never saw the sequel. THAT SAID, I tend to like Eli Roth as a person. Sure, I think he might have something a little wrong with him to make those movies, but who doesn't! He seems like a nice guy and he actually does have some talent, so I'm still eagerly awaiting Cell.

Now if I disliked Hostel....Words cannot begin to describe how I feel about Boll's films, and yes, I have seen a few (on TV, I didn't pay for it!). But the problem with Boll is, he makes a dick of himself in the media as well. So yeah, if he just made some slightly poor films , and people started petitioning him, I'd feel bad, but he kinda brought this upon himself. In MY opinion anyway.

Fuck Uwe.

I'm glad to hear MIchael Bay respond. Uwe Boll is a horrible filmmaker who, by some fluke, has several movies, and because of this he thinks he can run his mouth, and spout horrible shit about people when confronted with his own shortcomings. It is ridiculous.

That petition NEEDS to finish Uwe off. And Ben? I hope that Extra Tidbit up there was pure sarcasm.

While I can't vouch for Eli Roth, it is safe to say that Michael Bay has more talent in his pinky finger than the entirety of Boll. Sure, Boll is ballsy with his words, but it still doesn't change the fact that he makes useless pieces of craps that can only be loosely named as "movies". While Michael Bay movies are dumb, they're at least greatly entertaining and cool to watch. Boll films are just sad, low-budget crap.

Everytime I start to feel bad about Uwe Boll being bashed so much, he goes and makes himself into a complete asshole.. mocking people that have had far more success then he has. Say what you want about Michael Bay, his films are entertaining as shit and make a ton of money. Bay's least grossing film still did triple of Uwe's highest grossing film. Lets be serious.. Uwe Boll churns out pieces of shit continuously, and I can't stand it anymore. I wouldn't mind the guy if he wasn't such an

I wouldn't mind the guy if he wasn't such an arrogant prick.. and even if he's joking I still think its a slap in the face to any of the guys he mentions. He's far from professional... he is pretty entertaining though, and without him I'd be a little upset.

Boll of crap!

I got to say, while I have seen only a few Bay films that I like....as well as a few Roth films I like, I have NEVER seen one single Boll film I like. I would have to say, as bad as they are, Bay and Roth are far better than Boll.

On a side note, this freak out that Uwe Boll is having is funny as hell.

I suggest a fight to the death between Bay, Boll, & Roth with George Clooney as special referee. Whoever Wins, We Still Lose.
