Uwu Boll is awesome.

Uwe Boll is awesome.

Sorry, but I just have to say that.

If you want to hop on the internet bandwagon and call into question his skills and movies than fine.

However, I will always respect the hell outta the guy. In a monopoly where independent stuff like "Troma" is almost impossible to produce he has carved himself out a niche. And look at the CONSTANT CRAP that Hollywood is coming out with. He is a genius in getting the money and actors to create big time films.

Also I think that some people are put off by his self promotion. You know what, if you can independently create some media as big as what he has, then you can complain about that. He has every right to be proud of his accomplishments. In this age everyone is being either a crass ignorant moron who is full of pride in him or herself for no reason or because some aspect of society tell you it's OK to feel good about something you did.

If you have the fucking brains and balls to go and do something on a large scale in the world of sheep we live in then more power to you and you deserve to have pride in your accomplishments.

Even if you don't want to admit it, the future of media lies in the hands of those that are willing and able to reach out and create. If you are really that pissed off by someone elses creations then go out and create something of your own...

If you still can't respect that then please just go support what movies you like. Don't be a fucking sheep and hop on the bandwagon.

-I thought House of the Dead 2 was by far the weakest movie. Yet even that had some really nice looking scenes. Far better looking than some of the crap in the Resident Evil films (which overall I thought were better than HoD2 of course)

-But if you think that many action films created by Hollywood are better than some of Boll's stuff than you are stupid. Bloodrayne > Electra

I think the reason people are so hard on Uwe Boll, (me included) is that he seems incapable of directing a movie that can be considered watchable. Then there's the fact that he completely disregards the original stories with the game adaptations he's directed (of course, the same could be said of Paul W.S. Anderson as well).

There's also been some controversy over whether Boll intentionally directs these awful movies so he and his investors will make a crap load of money due to some weird German tax law, but I don't know it that's ever been substantiated.

One thing I do know is that I give him props for beating up his critics.

Not many people get that privilege.

I also think he has more popularity as a fighting director then a good director.
