Uwe Boll Speaks Out Against Internet Petition

Uwe Boll is up to his old tricks again. The director who has made such financial and critical bombs like Alone In The Dark, BloodRayne and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, has posted a new video on MovieSet.com/Postal, a site created for his new film Postal. The video shows Boll responding to a recent internet petition to get him to stop making movies. You have to see this for yourself, but be forewarned, there is some R-rated language in here, folks. Click below for the video.


If you're wondering what he's talking about, there was an Internet petition created to get Uwe Boll to stop making movies. Last week, Fearnet.com posted an interview with Boll where he was asked about the petition. There were only 18,000 signatures when the interview was published on April 4, and Boll said it would take 1 million signatures to convince him to stop making movies. As of this writing, there are currently just over 140,000 signatures.

A "pro-Boll" petition has been formed (apparently today, from a comment on the Fearnet.com story) and, as of this writing, there are currently 133 total signatures.

UPDATE: According to JoBlo, both Eli Roth and Michael Bay have responded to Boll's video. Roth responded by saying it was, "the best compliment ever," while Bay posted the following on his message board:

"I 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 'do I care?' Not in the slightest."

UPDATE #2: (4.10.08) The madness ensues as Uwe Boll continues to stoke the flames of the internet fans who hate him. Check it out...

Postal was released May 23rd, 2008.

    @instead8909 -- Yeah, I think he will get started on it after Django Unchained. I would expect Kill Bill Volume 3 around 2014-2015, or at least that sounds the most reasonable.

    Yeah, I heard it was pretty good. I'll definitely watch it when I get the chance.

      I have been thinking of watching them since Quentin is making another Kill Bill film.

      From Dust to Dawn is quite good if your interested in a gory horror. But it's brilliantly done

        @instead8909 -- Oh, but I wasn't? You saw the only Quentin Tarantino movies I haven't, lol. You should watch Kill Bill Volume 1 and 2 along with "Inglourious Basterds"! They don't include pervasive language and are truly incredible films.

          Correction I I have seen three of Quentin Tarantino's film.

          Jackie Brown

          Pulp Fiction

          From Dust til Dawn

            @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx you don't have to be a jerk about it.

            It was Pulp Fiction I didn't like and BloodRyne, but I rewatched them and they're not as bad as I first thought. You have to lower your standards to watch Uwe Ball's films. I switched off my censer and I enjoyed Pulp fiction for the first time.

              @instead8909 -- Oh, really? What were the names of the two movies? You don't know what those stand for? I'd love to be in your shoes, in this case. "Lol" is a acronym for "laugh(ing) out loud" and "Lmfao" is an acronym for "laughing my f*cking ass off".

              And no, it doesn't mean I can't accept that you didn't like them back then. Attack? No! More of a "wake up" call.

              • instead8909 • 3 years ago

                @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I posted that years ago and my opinion has changed since then.

                Owe can be weird at times but his heart is in it.

                I've seen two of Quentin Tarantino's films, one was awful the other not.

                I've watched In the Name of the King twice since then and it's still good, but cheesy.

                By the way what does those short forms stand for? Does it mean that you can't accept that I didn't like them back then. Then in that case, you're attack is pointless.

                  @instead8909 -- Someone has an invalid opinion. Which two movies are you referring to? Because as far as I'm concerned, Quentin Tarantino adds fitting material to each one of his movies. Not all of them contain pervasive language(even though A LOT of people swear to no end in real life, a fact that you're obviously oblivious too. It may not be right, but that's just how it is). He doesn't add pervasive language in all of his movies, you know. Kill Bill Volume 1 and 2 would serve as perfect support for that statement, along with "Inglourious Basterds". Over-the-top? Yes. But in no way is that a bad thing. He's one of(if not THE only) person who can take over-the-top material and make it polished and - may I say - tasteful.

                  Talentless? I would insert "LOL", or "LMFAO", but that would make what I'm about to say blatant: If you can't tell the different between Uwe Boll and Quentin Tarantino, the jokes of you, buddy.

                          LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL -----> "So another not for all the Boll haters here out in the web. I don't know what I take away from you but in a way, I get so many hate e-mails and everything and you think like they are like I take money away from you but it's you, you are your own responsible that you don't make movies, it's not my problem and it's not my money what you would get to make your own movies if you get me out of the business I don't even know why you get off on me like crazy because I'm not in the Hollywood system. I'm the opposite basically and maybe this is the reason that you all hate me so much because I prove that you can do it outside the system and you can come up with cheap excuse why you never make it, you are not able to make more than your mini DV video at home with ketchup and your little brother so I really think you should wake up at one point and you should put your jealous situation away. And if you write me, you don't write me with some bullsh*t nicknames out f the internet write me with you name and address so that I can track you down and rip you apart. Thank you." - Uwe Boll

                              both have fowl mouths, sure he's a little worse than Tarantino One is a High School drop out and Uwe is a smug jerk who thinks is better than us, for someone that hates Hollywood, why attach him self to American films.

                              That dungeon siege film he did maybe horrible, but when one does want to think nor judge a film then its good to watch.

                              The main reason why I don't like Tarantino's films is because there ultra violent and way too much swearing involved. I've only seen two of his films to know he's an untalented jerk, no human should swear that much.

                                OkIunderstand this guy is hurt that people are bashing the hell out him but this responce is not the way to quell the flames. You dont fight fire with fire. I've seen his films, was watching that dungeon siege movie just now. I thought it was just a regular low budget sci-fi movie which I don't mind sometimes. Then saw the cast, not that they're great actors, but a decent director would have made

                                this bunch at least somewhat beliveable. They dont even look like they are trying.

                                Michael bay sucks but why take shots at him and clooney? What did they do to him lol? He also calls himself a genius? Who does that ?

                                Todd89 you gonna seriously compare him to Tarantino?

                                  I've seen two of his films and I enjoyed them up to a degree. It's not only him but there are other things that spoil his films, a poorly written story and bad acting with little or no special effects.

                                  I can say for one thing though, he's not the only one that has some bad films. I don't care for Eli Roth or Quintin Tarintiro or how ever you spell his name, think before you judge his films. Not everyone loves Peter Jacksons films, I may like plenty of directors but a petition to get rid of a director.

                                  He has a right to make films, last I heard this is a free country.

                                  Who's next on your list Michael Bay, George Lucas, David Goyer, or will it be Will Smith? Heak you can't get rid of them, just because you don't like a certain film doesn't mean you have to sign a stupid petition, just don't watch his films.
