UWE BOLL CHALLENGES TARANTINO AND HIS CRITICS

Written by Gareth Von Kallenbach

Monday, 12 June 2006

Maverick Independent filmmaker Uwe Boll is set to face his toughest detractors head on as part of the upcoming movie “Postal” which is based on the highly controversial series from Running with Scissors.

Boll the creator of such films as “House of the Dead”, “Alone in the Dark” , “Bloodrayne”, and the pending “In the Name of the King a Dungeon Siege Tale”, has often been the target of biting and venomous reviews despite the fact that all of his films have turned a profit once the final box office and home video receipts are tallied.

Despite his films financial success, Boll who works outside of the studio system and has his films financed by investors has often been called out by critics as a lousy director whose films are among the worst ever made.

Not content to let such hash criticism go unanswered Boll has decided to face his critics once and for all with a unique challenge that will allow director and critic to face off in a battle royal that further establishes the Directors passion for his craft and his willingness to go the extra mile to put his convictions on the line against those who are content to hide behind their words without any consequences from those they have slighted.

The full release is below.

Uwe Boll Challenges His Critics “To Put Up Or Shut Up !”

Uwe Boll Invites His Top 5 Most Outspoken Critics of 2005
To Appear In His Feature Film “Postal”.

Airfares & Hotel Expenses To Vancouver Will Be Paid
By Uwe Boll’s Production Company For These Critics To Be In Postal.

June 12, 2006 – Vancouver, BC – We are proud to announce that Dr.Uwe Boll’s BLOODRAYNE starring Kristanna Loken, Michael Madsen, Matthew Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Sir Ben Kingsley, Will Sanderson, Udo Kier, Meat Loaf, Michael Pare & Billy Zane had a successful release May 23rd., 2006 on DVD in both Canada & USA.

Iain Taylor of Vivendi Visual Entertainment Canada stated, “BloodRayne ranked in the top 6 best selling DVD titles during the first part week of sales in Canada (Nielsen Videoscan Canada)”. In the USA BloodRayne’s DVD performance was even stronger. Tom O’Malley, GM of Vivendi Visual Entertainment (USA), said “For the first time in this industry, a Theatrical Release and the Complete PC Video Game were released together on DVD. BloodRayne ranked in the top 5 best selling DVD titles during its debut week (Nielsen VideoScan USA)”. In both countries unofficial DVD rental statistics have proven to be even more impressive.

Again the fans have shown that the critics of Uwe Boll are out of touch with want the general movie audience population wants. Dr. Boll has continually been roasted for the films he has directed and produced. His last two films, House of the Dead & Alone in the Dark, cost $20 million but they have grossed over $110 million to-date. The same negative reactions from some of the same press and the internet critics are now being directed at Uwe Boll’s latest film; BloodRayne.

Dr. Uwe Boll has had enough! Uwe Boll’s position is “I am fed up. I’m fed up with people slamming my films on the Internet without see them. Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand Internet voices. Half of those opinions come from people who’ve never watched my films. I have been told that “BloodRayne” has a very bad IMDb rating, but how many of those votes of zero were made before the movie appeared in theatres.” The criticism goes on and on.

Uwe is now challenging the critics that failed to watch his films prior to reviewing or commenting, “TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP!”

On July 17th, 2006 Uwe will start filming his next feature film, “Seed”, starring Will Sanderson, Ralf Moeller, Michael Pare & Andrew Jackson. Following that film he will go into production in late September with another feature called “Postal”. Both movies will be shot in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Towards the end of the filming of the “Postal” the 5 most outspoken critics will be flown into Vancouver and supplied with hotel rooms. As a guest of Uwe Boll they will be given the chance to be an extra / stand-in in “Postal” and have the opportunity to put on boxing gloves and enter a BOXING RING to fight Uwe Boll. Each critic will have the opportunity to bring down Uwe in a 10 bout match. There will be 5 matches planned over the last two days of the movie. Certain scenes from these boxing matches will become part of the Postal movie. All 5 fights will be televised on the internet and will be covered by international press.

To be eligible you must be a critic who has posted on the internet or have written in magazines / newspapers at least two extremely negative articles in the year 2005. Critics of 2006 will not be considered. Please submit proof of your negative reviews & comments via e-mail to:

[email protected]

All challengers must be healthy males, weighing between 64 kilograms (140 lbs.) and 86 kilograms (190 lbs.). You will require to be physically examined by a doctor and sign the necessary release forms for liability, etc. You will not be paid or entitled to any residuals
or fees. Your transportation & hotel costs will be covered.

Dr. Uwe Boll’s invitation to fight and / or appear in his film is extended to all his harshest critics. Roger Avary and Quentin Tarantino are among the most eligible candidates.

The following posters to the IMDb have earned the right to be placed on the list of the most extreme anti-Boll critics and are therefore eligible to enter the contest. Contestants will be chosen to be an extra and physically box Dr. Uwe Boll.

If critics want to bring Uwe Boll down, here is their chance to physically bring him down and have the entire world watch them do it.
 
This is by far the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard...
 
I haven't enjoyed any of the man's films, but I think this is awesome. True, put up or shut up - fantastic. (BTW, the cat does have a pretty good point about how profitable his films are in terms of box office vs cost - not that it makes these good films, but he does good business for his investors).

There is now ONE thing that I like about Uwe Boll.
 
Holy **** that is brilliant!
I hope somone kicks the living **** out of him.
 
Ed Wood.

But, Uwe Bowell might surprise us. To me- at least people like Ed Wood's films because they are so bad and laughable. Uwe Bowell's films- horrible and not to laugh at becaut it is just.... horrible and boring.


Sounds similar to an Andy Kaufman (great comedian) type gag.

Tarantino would kick the snot out of him.

In a directing contest, of course QT would win. However, in a real fight, I would wager serious money that Boll would beat QT down pretty easily. You have seen picturers of both of these men, right?
 
What? Uwe Boll still hasn't been "accidentally" run over by a truck?

I just looked for an Uwe Boll picture and he completely different from what I expeted.

BTW, If he and Tarantino fought in a fist fight, Uwe Boll would definitely win.

Haha, I don't think I've ever seen one of Uwe Boll's films. :confused:
 
This is the most pathetic publicity stunt since Tom Cruise had sex with a woman.
 
I seriously doubt his movies made that much of a profit... I can believe House of the Dead had a profit, but only because people weren't aware of the terror that was Boll's directing.
 
I've never in my life seen an Uwe Boll film that wasn't a commercail.

And you definitely don't want to. :D
 
I think I should at least watch his movies to have a right to form bashing opinions.


But I don't want to waste hours of my life.

You seriously don't understand the movie business. There is a reason that the man has Independant backers for all of his films - they turn a profit when all is said and done. International box office and home video/DVD sales/rentals have much to do with the overall financial success of a film. It isn't all about American box office totals.
 
Uwe Boll doesn't have the talent to make a good movie.
 
Poor little Boll, one bit of advice for ya......If you can't stand be critisized then stop being a director and get into another line of work.
