Hello!

Are you tired of getting your favourite games raped by the horrible direcor Uwe Boll? I know I am, and even if you aren't I urge you to sign this petition. He has agreed to stop if this poetition gets 1 million signs. (http://www.slashfilm.com/2008/04/06/uwe-boll-will-quit-making-movies-with-one-million-signatures/)

Here is the link: http://www.petitiononline.com/RRH53888/petition.html

I don't think I have to say anything else. This is for the greater good, anyone who signs this is making something good for the world.

EDIT: Games, not movies.

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Haha biggrin.gif
Boll is one of my heroes.. his movies are completely unwatchable and rubbish, but he's got a spirit not seen since Ed Wood.

I loved the fact that he challenged his critics to a boxing match, and followed up on his promise.

Mr. Boll is one of the most hated modern filmmaker.. he buys up the rights to videogames and turns them into terrible movies. Like Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead, Dungeon Siege.. and soon Farcry and more.
He has also recently made Postal, which he turn on the shock-factor and has a little fun with 9/11.

The most impressive thing is that he always comes up with millions of dollars for new projects.
He (jokingly) say in Postal that his movies are funded with nazi-gold biggrin.gif

Ok so I'm renting Alone in the Dark, which everyone seems to say is like the worst movie of all time. After I've watched it I might sing the petition.

After hearing all this talk around the internet about how bad it is I actually can't wait to see it! laugh.gif

It's bad.. but it's not funny bad, it's just excrutiatingly boring bad..
And apparantly Uwe Boll believed that if he put a pair of glasses on Tara Reid, she would suddenly look smart enough to fit her charracter.

Boll arranges official boxing-matches against his critics.. if you mail him and ask for a fight, then i'm sure he will arrange it smile.gif

I don't get it? Why do you have to stop him from making movies? If you don't like them, then just don't watch them..

I just saw the intro to Postal The Movie, it seemed pretty funny.

I guess it's just somehow depressing see some of your favourite games kinda "raped" on the big screen...

So I just watched Alone in the dark and... ummm... mmm... no.... I'll sing that petition too.
Alone in the dark series has been one of my favourite childhood "scares", I truly loved those games, but the movie didn't make any "honour" to the games.

Yes, stop this foolish petition.

Uwe is pretty upset now
His response to the petition:

"Look, I'm not a fucking retard like Michael Bay or other people running around in the business or Eli Roth making the same shitty movies over and over again. If you really look at my movies you will see my real genius, and if you go on May 23 on Postal you will see that I deliver a movie what nobody else delivered in the last 10 years, what is way better as all that social critic George Clooney bull**** what you get every f****** weekend. You have to really wake up and you have to see me what I am. I am the only genius in the whole f****** business. Goodbye."
