Today's Takeaway - 10/26
We all know of Uwe Boll. His cinematic genius has brought us such fine films as Alone in the Dark, Postal, and the Blood Rayne Trilogy. One thing about Dr. Boll (he holds a Doctorate in Literature) is that he is completely insane. Take this video as evidence.
So, not only did he use the rough draft as a fleshed out script, but also he barely used it at all. Seems pretty amateur to me and based on how well his movies come together, it shows. So my question is this, why is he still making movies? What do we have to do to stop this ass clown from turning Vampire Rain into his next failure? It's not that I have a problem with bad movies; I just have a problem with taking video games and turning them into bad movies.
I blame German tax laws, for they are the real culprit here.
Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
Rampage was pretty good.
Very believable from Uwe.
No, that's still an opinion, jackass.
As a Kraut, your play on words made me laugh my ass off.
Or we could just hire a sniper.
Lol, Uwe Boll is such a bad director, I think even that I could make better movies. The only one I enjoyed was Postal but even that was a pretty poor movie.
Saying "I think Uwe Boll sucks", is an opinion. Saying "Uwe Boll needs to be euthanized", is a matter of fact.
Glad to know that you understand what an "opinion" is.
Being extreme as well as correct.
And yet, that stupid argument is used anyway. I'm not defending him because I think he's a good director - I'm pointing out how extreme your comment was, that's all.
I'm just finding it rather hilarious that you're sticking up for him, yet you've never seen his movies. Go spend a couple hours on Netflix then come back. I'll be waiting. Cherrio.
So there is something wrong with someone who disagrees with your opinion. Glad you respect them. Not only that, but you are demanding that someone literally kill Uwe Boll "for the sake of cinema." I'm sorry, I really am, but are you seriously suggesting that someone be killed because he made movies you didn't like? It doesn't matter if a lot of people don't like his movies; the majority does not create truth. I don't dis/like Uwe Boll because I haven't watched his movies, but you suggest that even the mere THOUGHT of defending him points to mental instability. I'm sorry, but no. No, no, no. I don't care if you've seen all of his movies, if you like to think that those who enjoy his films or defend him just for the sake of being fair have something wrong in their brains, you have GOT to take a look in the mirror.
You can indirectly diss me for dissing others for the Bandwagon Effect, but you can't use the "I respect your opinion" flag with a statement like that. I'm sorry, but that's how I see it.
And don't use the "you haven't seen his movies" argument that everybody uses - I'll watch them someday, but I doubt I'll want Uwe Boll dead after watching them. I've seen a lot of Michael Bay movies, and I've disliked a lot of them. Does that mean I want him dead? NO! That's taking it too far.
the boll cannot be stopped!!! unless every g1 in the world challenge him to a boxing match.
Of course, I could just state bluntly; "Uwe is an asshole and I hate him". And leave it at that. Oh, no. No, no, no. I'm not going to do that. I absolutely detest Uwe Boll. For the sake of cinema, someone needs to take this sour kraut behind the shed and put him down like the dog he is. People whom are on his site often say; "Oh, he is passionate about film-making!", and I must say, that is nothing more then you talking out of your ass. I have seen all of his movies, and not at a single bloody moment did I think; "Oh wow, he's very passionate about his work". This Deutsche-bag couldn't make even a half-way decent movie to save his life. I don't have a problem with other people's opinions. But if you actually LIKE Uwe Boll, nevertheless try standing up for him on an internet website, there is something wrong about you. Either you're being paid by the guy, or you just have mental retardation of a massive degree.
Wow, i was in many communities, but so far the screwattack community is the childiest and most ignorant of all internetz. how old are you guys? Im 26 and seen many Boll movies, and they entertained me (Postal for example). So whats the problem to say that not all of his movies were shit.
But most people, im sorry, most kids here at screwattack have seen 2 of his films and only complain about him because its cool and "Craig said Boll is shit, so its true".
im sorry, but thats my last comment in this news. i register here to help screwattack and not to battle with little kids in the comments.
I didn't get my opinion from watching a Youtube video though. I got it from listening to others. Maybe that's not much better, but it isn't from one Youtube video. And I've made my point clear enough: I don't hate Uwe Boll or his films BECAUSE I haven't seen them. That's what I hate about this: some people (excluding you) feel that it's somehow their duty to hate the man because they're gamers without seeing the actual products, which is unacceptable.
Other than that, whatever.
