Say it ain't so Uwe!

04.06.2008
A lot of people hate Uwe Boll as a filmmaker, right? They think DUNGEON SIEGE and BLOODRAYNE are wastes of celluloid. I personally think that Boll is an original cinematic voice with uncompromising visions of filmic genius. That’s why a recent interview between Boll and FEARnet disturbs me. They asked him if he was aware that a petition has been signed online by 18,000 people asking him to stop making movies. Boll answered that he was aware, but that it wasn’t enough to “convince” him. However, Boll said that one million signatures would be able to convince him, and that terrifies me. The fact that 982,000 more signatures can put my personal guru (and one of the best filmmakers of all time) out of business, terrifies me. This is me, to all of you, as you friend: DON’T SIGN THE PETITION! LET UWE BOLL CONTINUE TO MAKE BRILLIANT FILMS! I’M BEING SARCASTIC! If interested, you can find said petition HERE.
Extra Tidbit: No dude, f*ck Uwe!!!

Over 200,000 now!!! EAT IT BOLL!

I love the fact that it is over 200,000 votes to never make another film. Too bad it probably won't make it and the fact that "His Crapiness" Dr. Uwe (pronounced EWWWW!!) will continue to make them anyway.

You know, as much as I REALLY don't care for him or his movies, we don't really have the right to say whether or not he should be allowed to do what he wants to do, I think the petition is crap and even if he gets a million signatures, he'll still say fuck off, make his movies and challenge you to a boxing match.

I won't sign, who cares if he keeps pumping out the crap. I keep watching his films when they reach DVD, I don't know why. It's like driving by a car wreck, and not being able to help yourself and having to look.

What I'm completely amazed by is how Uwe has so little knowledge or care about how a film actually goes together after doing so many of them. They don't seem to get any better. He gets good actors, but they give life-time worse performances each time out. The editing is all

He gets good actors, but they give life-time worse performances each time out. The editing is all over the place, you can't tell what the hell is going on half the time. The effects are laughable. I wish they were in the so-bad-they're-good category, but they're so technically inept, that you can't enjoy them on that level.

I just reviewed Nightmare City (click WWW), and that is a masterpiece in terms of so-bad-its-goodness; Uwe should aspire to such heights.

A modern day Ed Wood

Even if you hate his movies - you have to give him credit: the vitriolic hate he engenders has brought the movie fan community closer. Let him keep pumping out garbage, and he'll have an amazing body of work we can look back and take a collective dump upon. he's doing his way, and as much as I think I could do a better job, directing movies seems difficult, and who knows. That might actually be the source of the venom - jealousy that he keeps getting paid to crank out shit that we feel we

The AV Club has a pretty good interview with him. I think the scariest thing is that he really is a pretty smart guy, and he may actually someday transcend this genre garbage, and make a good film. Or, maybe not.

he must be doing something right

A) if you cause this much of a stir you must be doing something right.

B) if you sign that petition you are a pud. if you don't like his movies than don't watch them.

I've signed it solely on the principle that he takes up too much space that could be filled by more talent(e.g. financially and in terms of publicity). to be honest I think he should just become a producer rather then a director seen as he can get the cash together to make film after film I think that's where his true talent lies.

STUPID

Let him make all the movies he can. I mean the guy LOVES what he does, how can you take that away from somebody? Even if it SUCKS BALLS. As long as he finds a way to make movies, he'll still make em' regardless. It doesn't mean I'll see his movies though, unless I do a bad movie marathon with my friends to make fun of the movies over pizza. Now that's fun.

This is lame fanboy bullshit. If you don't like his movies, then don't pay to see them. Vote with your dollar and don't fault someone else for getting to do what they want with their lives. It comes off like whiny jealous nonsense.

Uwe Boll might be a horrible director, but he might as well keep making films as long as he has the opportunity. I don't know how you can fault a guy for being able to do what he loves for a living.

Being angry at Uwe Boll for taking what comes his way just sounds like sour grapes. If you want to make films then get working, like I'm sure Uwe had to.

Uwe Blow

I signed it but only because i am absolutely ashamed that He is allowed to have huge budgets to make crappy movies and me and others like me have some good ideas that are not getting anything.

Boll's legacy

I think he knows as much as anyone else that he's not a good director.

I think he loves to do what he does, though. On top of that, he might just be a genius with the fact that he knows how to play up his whole image of "a good filmmaker" to piss people off and garner more attention.

Good publicity.

You know, it's funny, but Uwe isn't just somebody that I hate, he's somebody that I LOVE to hate. Sure, he's a shitty filmmaker. Sure, he's taking potentially successful franchises and hideously raping them. But, like a fatal accident involving an ice cream truck and a schoolbus full of midgets, I just can't look away! No, it's more than that ... I actually go out of my way to find that ice cream truck! So I regret to say that I will not be signing the petition, because dammit, I love to

Bloodrayne 2

I saw the sequel to Bloodrayne on the weekend and it wasn't really bad... I was quite surprised. I think he is learning more and more with every movie. Can't wait to see Postal.

Douchebag!

I hate this guy because he gets to make films with big stars and budgets while other younger and talented directors can't get any opportunities at all and could make a film a million times better than him. The fact that this man calls himself a director is an absolute insult.
