Oh, Uwe Boll. I really tried stand up for him and his shitfest movies because, you know, if he's doing something he loves and he's getting paid to do it, that's great! But then I saw this, and I just couldn't do it anymore. Did he have to use the word "genius"? Oh, Uwe. Good Lord.

I love how he says that Eli makes "the same shitty movies over and over again." UH, HOW MANY BLOODRAYNES ARE THERE NOW?

Yup yup, I was always defending the bastard as well, but he crossed the line with that one. Well, this is only the first video that Uwe Boll posted on youTube, theres another one where he phsycially threats everyone that signed the petition (in a very Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back fashion).

See, the first part of that made sense. If you don't like his movies, don't watch them. He's not responsible for what you do with your time. Then he started with that whole self-important "you're just jealous!" bullshit and I just can't take him seriously after that. I can't. Does he even have fans? I've literally only ever heard of one person who enjoyed one of his films and it was the, "oh, man, this is so bad, it's funny!" kind of enjoyment.

I wonder how many messages he's gotten with names and addresses going, "COME GET ME, ASSHOLE!"

haha, true that. Well its snowballed in to a huge internet drama, he's just a very childish person. He shouldn't have said he'd quit directing if he got a petition with a million signatures, and then get all hussy when its nearing 1/3 of the way.

Gosh, I don't understand where this guy gets his funding. Sometimes I wonder if this whole Uwe Boll is one huge, made up game that hes playing. Seriously, he could have us all fooled in believing hes this obnoxious asshole, but really everyones in on it...... but he doesn't seem smart enough to pull it off....

Whatever, I'm standing up for Eli Roth. :)

He shouldn't have and if he cared that much about his career, he wouldn't have. That's why I didn't feel too bad signing it! :D

Yeah, I'm waiting awaiting the day he makes a youtube video going, "JUST KIDDING, GUYS!" I just don't understand why they keep letting him make movies. There can't be that many people who like to put themselves through bad horror film. It's not even the fun kind of bad, either. Those films are actually painful to watch. I mentioned this whole ordeal to a friend the other day and the immediate response was, "OH GOD, NO!"

To be honest with you, I don't think his movies are as bad as everyone says they are. I liked Bloodrayne. Alone in the Dark was stupid fun. House of the Dead...that was terrible. But it wasn't as terrible as other movies I've seen, like A Night to Dismember and Avia: Vampire Hunter and Dark Fields. I don't understand the amount of hate he attracts unless it's for internet drama like this, which really is as annoying as it sounds. Now Uli Lommel, that guy needs to stop making movies. They should never let him near a camera again. But Boll, while his movies are bad, I really don't think they're THAT bad. But this immature bullshit drama? THAT pisses me off. It seems like he's a high schooler picking on the popular kid (Eli Roth) purposely trying to get people to hate him more so he gets more publicity (except most high schoolers...hell, most PRESCHOOLERS are more mature than that). there's no way in hell he will quit his job is a million people sign that petition. I don't care how much he says it's true, I don't believe a word of it, and I don't want to give him any more attention.
