    I like Uwe maybe not his movies, but even at that; I will go see postal instead of Indiana Jones...

    This is utter retarded "The internet is serious buissnes" he makes entertainment, if I like him; I will reward him with my money, who the hell are you to limit my entertainment choice?

    It's not the fact that he makes entertainment, it's of what he does make them of. He makes good games, into crappy movies (most of them) giving them bad reputation.

    Or would you like to see Empires made by UWE? :P

    If Uwe Boll decides to stop making movies it's entirely his decision. I wonder if his offer was serious, and there's only one way to find out.

    I wouldn't mind seeing it, I don't take his movies seriously, they are just for the "lulz"

    I mean his dungeon siege movie had the following:

    The Transporter
    Tits
    Skimpy clad elf chicks swinging on trees
    Raping and Pillaging
    Ninjas
    and some gandalf like wizzard...

    The only thing missing from that was Pirates...

    If you want to get serious; His movies are mirror reflections of the games themselves, House of the dead? Blood Rayne? I mean there is only so deep you can go, look at Resident Evil; it's nothing an Uwe Boll movie doesn't have. It doesn't mean that his movies are great; and sure I agree you can go alot farther and deeper and make some sort of entertwining complex plot, but, no one has done that so far; No one...

    It's just the thing that he is making money off of things he hardly made up. Movies are supposed to be unique, and boasting originality, and have a writing team, or at least portrait something like you know... the motherfucking bible (yes, the motherfucking one- incest was thrife in it). He's hardly doing anything except pooping out (what look like) low-budget films that the hordes of fanboys will slap money down before they can be on the ball about their utter suck.

    Obviously people (and I use that term loosely) enjoy his work, if he's able to make money off the garbage he directs. No amount of winging and internet petitions will change that fact.

    Vote with your wallet. Don't see his movies.

    Thinks of it like this; stop him before he even thinks of making a Half-Life movie.

    On the positive side, although it may be old news, In the Name of the King (based on Dungeon Siege) cost $70 million to make. It only made about $3 million at the box offices. There's no way he can afford to make many more movies unless he stops pumping out mediocre ones.

    VALVe won't let him make a half-life movie, only good movie scripts will be made into a movie.

    Yeah, VALVE is pretty cool about that.
    What I'm worried about is: now that Ubisoft has the rights to use "Tom Clancy's ..." as they please, they might let Boll do a Rainbow Six or Splinter Cell movie. After all they own the rights to Far Cry, and they let him do that.
    That's why I signed the petition, although I'm not an Anti-Boll fanboy per se.

    I thought Uwe Boll is a nick name of some random idiot who does crap youtube videos of games which he has recorded with his fraps or something...

    I dont know if you can still use it but there was a "exploit" in the german tax system that allowed you to invest money abroad and let you set your loss off against tax liability.
    That was the way Boll gets his money, so the movie didnt need to make gain.
