The Loop: One On One With Uwe Boll

EMorton
Posted April 10, 2008 - By Eugene Morton

Today's very special guest on Attack of the Show is Director, Uwe Boll. The controversial figure has become famous for making filmic adaptations of videogames that have collectively not been well received by critics and the gaming community, such as House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark and BloodRayne.

Recently, he made a splash by openly condemning Hollywood’s lack of originality, slamming top name stars like George Clooney and proclaiming himself a genius. We cannot overstate it enough; for gamers and film fans alike, this is one Loop you will not want to miss!

    I got it right. You may like him (Steve Martin), but I think he sucks. I don't find him funny at all. So, yes, I got it right, and you can't make me change my mind.

    Whoever said steve martin was in all those crappy movies does not know what he is talking about. Steve martin is a genius. The dumb ass in those movies is named Leslie nealson. Get it right guy. Oh and this guy should have his Cameras destroyed for creating such crap. anyone who spawns a movie on a game like postal is a complete moron. the game was ment to be an over the top crap fest not a movie you retard. enough we dont need a freaking movie about it. The main actor in it looks like an ass hair. STOP MAKING MOVIES GUY. Blood rayne was the biggest hunk of crap i have ever laid my eyes on. Thank god i didnt watch house of the dead. YOU SIR ARE AN EPIC FAIL!

    Why does hollywood keep letting him make his movies? Production companies and distributors must always have some extra change floating around when Uwe comes a knockin with one of his hair brain ideas, because any sane comapny would see Uwe coming and RUN the other way! They obviously loose tons of money on him everytime his movies come out and keeps getting worse with each flick. More and more people realize that his movies are crap. I think it must be his fan base (all two of you) who constantly feed this moron's ego. So i say we should not only petition Uwe Boll to stop making his ball o' garbage films. But petition all of you who encourge this idiot from posting anything positive on any site regarding Uwe Boll. If anything I've learned in my young age is that if more then one person has a suggestion or an idea on something that your doing is wrong then those people are more often then not correct. So Uwe, listen to what everyone is saying and QUIT!!!

    "Misunderestimate"? I think someone has been listening to ol' Bush a bit too intently.

    Does he honestly think he has a chance against Indy 4, or was he just being funny? I really can't tell.

    NO WAY IN HELL!

    The movies are horrible, no matter what the subject. Not just because he takes video games and butchers the stories, cause lets face it, I haven't really seen a great movie adaptation yet. Its the feeling that both him and his crew (actors, set designers, and over all production crew) half ass everything. Come on Bloodrayne's acting seemed to of come from MTV's the Real World.
    But, the idea of a comedy created by him, perks my interest enough to rip it from net.

    He is a pretty nice guy.

    It's okay to mess with the script of a video game to make it more acceptable as a movie.

    It's the fanboys that want to see, and correct me if I'm wrong, same story, same characters, same setting, same lines, same voices, same costumes, etc etc (basically "straight-to-silver-screen faithfulness to source material) that cause him to have a bad image. I'm all for him staying away from video game movies, but if he could come up with a truly original piece, people's opinion might change.

    he actually is a really nice guy. I'm surprised. I've never seen a video of him before. I'm still not seeing postal, but he's not bad.

    Far be it from me to tell someone to stop persuing their chosen career but let me suggest that Uwe and well everyone stop making video game movies. There are plenty of crap video game movies out there and Uwe does not need to be lending his *cough* genius to them.

    I agree with GreenQuadrant. I gave up on Uwe when I saw Alone In the Dark, but this comedy might be a step forward for him. I'm going to see this one, at worst I'll laugh at how awful it turned out to be and that's what I was there to do anyway.

    You guys should check out the Postal movie trailer, it have recieved alot positive feed backs. I mean, he is a bad director, maybe he just need to do something else besides action, sci-fi or horror and try to focus more on comedy instead.

    Uwe Boll, what is his deal anyway? Is he mentally handicapped or just oblivious? Does he really not realize that his movies are cinematic abortions?

    Somehow I don't doubt the actors when they say they made the movie while he was in the bathroom.
    What I can't figure out is if all his movies are done this way to avoid the possibility of it being dine in a decent manner, or if this was a noble attempt by the actors to keep Boll form having anything to do with the movie.....

    Did he really just compare his tripe to Blues Brothers!?!???
    Every frame of Blues Brothers is 100 times more epic than Uwe Boll's entire library of train wreck movies.

    Does he honestl think he stand a snowball's chance in Hell against a Juggernaut movie like Indiana Jones?????

    This guy's a fanbot for his own movies!

    Ugh.

    Wow, I swear he has to be part of the russian mafia in order to keep the money train flowing, cause who in gods name would produce these pieces of crap. Even the actors in these movies don't give a crap about the amount of acting they do.
    "My only threat is Indiana Jones." Even if that movie wasn't coming out that movie would still fail.
    I've seen straight to video movies with potential that towers any of his movies. There like the reality shows of conventional cinema.

    LOL. I am gonna watch postal after this. Shut up! It's my money. I waste it the way I want.

    Really guys, how many people saw Meet the spartans, Epic movie, Scary movie, the naked gun, or any of the movies where Steve Martin starred? They all sucked! And yet, they were at least somewhat succesful.

    I am retracting from my vote on the petition for him to stop making movies. He basically said he won't honor it anyway.

    I really do not think Hollywood would think of him as any talent... I even do not think a porno industry would ask him to make a porn cause he is so horrible. This angers me everytime he makes something.....He messes it up everytime!!!!!!!!!!! for this reason I do not watch his films I wasted my money on bloodrayne and I was angry. I tried... tried to watch the second but I could not it looked like it was done with a handy cam and the town was about small as my school in Arnold itt and that is not big at all.

    I personally want to know this site so I can put it on myspace to get more people to to sign this I want my name on that!

    Why is G4 bothering with this man?! Do you think that HE thinks his work sucks? NOOooo. Its the "Liefeld" syndrome hard at work. In situations like this, I often wonder if the reason why these "artists" have gotten so far is because they are the 3rd cousin, twice removed of some famous director or head of a major studio. You cant ignore bad work...EVER. Please, ask the man if he is the stepchild of Spielberg or Scorsese... something! anything! Id hate to think that Hollywood considers this man talented, even by a smidge
