Uwe Boll... Root Of All Evil?

So I was thinking about this yesterday, and it suddenly all made sense.

To catch those up who have been living under a cinematic rock for the last 5 years or so, Uwe Boll is a writer/director/producer of some of the worst movies in recent years. He has been compared to the likes of Ed Wood, though some say he's even worse (considering that at least Ed Wood's movies are so bad they're good while Uwe Boll's are, well, not). He typically focuses on video game movies (giving a bad name to the already bad name of video game movies). Uwe Boll is responsible for such travesties as House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, In the Name of the King, and the upcoming Postal. Every one of his movies has bombed horribly, yet not only does he still receive funding, he continues to get well-known actors.

And not only is he a crappy filmmaker, but his attitude is smug, arrogant, highly annoying. He constantly states that he believes he is the best filmmaker in the world. And when critics hate on him, what does he do? He beats them up. Talk about immature. Again, for those who don't know, he challenged critics to face off against him in a boxing match (only his top 5 worst critics). What he didn't tell them is that he, in fact, is and/or used to be a boxer. So he ended up cleaning the floor with them. To pour salt on the wounds, it is believed that he is going to use footage from the fights in his upcoming film, Postal. However, when filmmakers challenged Boll to a film-related challenge, he decided to ignore them.

So anyway, back to the topic at hand. I believe it is people like Uwe Boll that ruin this world. It is not movies or video games that cause violence, but people such as Mr. Boll that show kids it's okay to beat up people that don't share your opinion... and that it's okay to walk away from the battles that actually matter.

And the cinema-going audience has been complaining for years now that only crap is coming out. Well, if people decided to invest their money (and decent actors) in quality material instead of Uwe Boll, then they might just get that. Cinema-goers would be happy. Or, instead, they could use all the money they would have used to produce a Uwe Boll film to solve world hunger or something. And if people put together all the money that would have been used to pay for tickets to see a Uwe Boll film... well, then, you could go to the dollar menu at McDonalds and have a simple lunch.

So, Uwe Boll, you need to stop making movies. You're causing school violence and world hunger.
