I remember when pussy was just awesome by itself. It was the best thing ever. Just when I thought it couldn't get better, BAM! They started landscaping it.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Give a man religion and he'll sit there, praying for fish, until he and his family starve to death.

I'm a little tired of only getting questions from journalists like, 'Your movies were so badly received, blah blah blah.' I know tons of movies that were way worse than Alone in the Dark and House of the Dead."

at least he knows they are bad.


i was smiling the entire time, till i read this

I won't say that I won't acquire another videogame licence in the future. But I'm not so eager to do it any more, to be honest. After Far Cry, maybe I'll go away from videogame-based movies. And everybody can be really happy about it.""

hes still making another one sad.gif

postal, 2 more

""There is no loophole," Boll says - at least not any more, it seems. He explains the situation used to be that if you invested, say, $100,000 in a movie, you could reduce the income you pay tax on by $100,000. As a result of this, German investors funded around 30 per cent of Hollywood movies, but all that's changed since the law was amended in December."

that confirms our earlier thread about that. he said he got 30% investment that way


"Apparently Boll is "number one in the market" as far as paying investors back goes, and that's "Not because I make the best movies on earth, but I make movies for a minimal amount of budget compared to what major companies are spending, and the movies look good, and they go out theatrically, and they make a lot of money on DVD or Pay TV."
i think boll is a boll hater himself

""What happened is, two French writers wrote a Metal Gear Solid script, and they approached me because they wanted me to direct and produce the movie.""

fuck the french

anyways, that guy is in complete denial. Everything else is someone elses fault. He admits his strong point is making cheap low budget movies and making money for his investors....not making good movies.


good movies sell. a good movie can sell based off word of mouth. Big mammas house, nothing i wanted to see, came out as number one after week 2 just off of word of mouth advertising. the goal with your marketing is to get people wanting to watch it before it goes to the theatre, but ou still need to make a good movie to keep them there.


blaming bloodrayne on different people was shit too. i saw the trailers, it looked like a b movie from 85. damn though he still has 3 more franchises to ruin before he stops sad.gif

IGN has dinner with Uwe Boll
I can't believe they're actually cheerleading him.

"I'm in the movie - Uwe Boll will play a minor part. I get killed by my 'Boll haters'," he explains. So will he be getting real, er, Boll haters to play themselves?

"Absolutely! I don't have a problem with that," Boll says. "I think I'd get thousands of extras doing that, coming to the set to track me down and lynch me!"


heh, maybe he will actually put some effort into the movies.


maybe not....

"The movie will be so politically incorrect and harsh, it's like a mirror to American society, and I don't think the movie will be well received by everybody. For example, Osama Bin Laden will be one of the lead characters - I think that shows the mood of the movie."
