Uwe Boll
Moviemaker Uwe Boll has lashed out at Hollywood's Darfur devotees for failing to help him land a proper release for his harrowing film about the massacres in the Sudan.

In an open letter, printed in industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter, the much-maligned Boll targets George Clooney, Matt Damon, Mia Farrow and "Hotel Rwanda" director Terry George for refusing to back his film "Attack on Darfur."

Angry Boll, the director of movie flops "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale" and "BloodRayne," claims he has reached out to those celebrities who seem to share his concerns for the t...

Video Game Films: Not Just Popcorn Fluff

September 9th, 2009 4:12pm EDT
Sure, many movies based on video games are just that- game play on screen without a controller. We could spend all day listing more than twenty years' worth of these films including 'Super Mario Brothers', 'Mortal Kombat' films, a slew of 'Pokemon' releases, the 'Tomb Raider' films, 'Final Fantasy', 'Resident Evil' films, 'Silent Hill', 'Doom', 'Bloodrayne', 'Hitman', 'Max Payne', and 'Street Fighter' films. The larger question asks, do they have the potential to be more than just idle game play on screen? The answer is sometimes.

The release of 'Gamer', the next in line for the gen...

Video Game Movies: The Good, The Bad, And The Boll

February 25th, 2009 9:09am EST
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
With Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li arriving in theaters February 27, it’s time to take a look back at the video game movies that brought us to this point.

While video games run the gamut of quality - from very good to very bad - video game movies have typically been on the “poor” side of the critical spectrum. Games are written with interactivity in mind, and thus their storylines don’t always mesh with the film medium.

Still, there are a few titles one could argue are at least passable – even if fans of the video games they are based on do not find them loyal to the ori...

Uwe Boll Says He'll Quit Directing If A Million People Sign Online Petition

April 7th, 2008 6:30pm EDT
Uwe Boll, director of such box-office losers as In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and Alone In The Dark, says that he'll stop making movies if an online petition asking him to reaches a million signatures.

The German director recently spoke with FEARnet, saying that the mere 18,000 names currently on the list are "not enough to convince me."

When asked how many names it would take for him to consider giving up his art, Boll said that a million would be the "new goal."

Since the BloodRayne director's chat with the horror site the number of names on the petition h...

Video Games Do Not Make Good Movies

January 14th, 2008 11:18am EST
Street Fighter
There are some things in Hollywood that just do not work: Lindsay Lohan and sobriety, most marriages, Tim Allen tackling roles not involving Christmas, and successfully adapting a video game into a movie. Why is this so hard?

The powers that be can take a 700-page book and trim it down to a two-hour story. Either they are picking really bad video games to adapt or the people involved just suck. There has yet to be a quality adaptation. So why do studios keep insisting on producing them? They even screwed up Doom, a story that involves Marines fighting aliens. How is that even possible...

January 5th, 2006 6:00pm EST
"The horror audience will be very happy with the gore effects in BloodRayne", says director/ producer Uwe Boll. He continues: "We tried to get the hardest R as possible, and to our surprise the MPAA approved it without any changes."

So the horror aficionados will see the gore feast they´re waiting for: German goremeister Olaf Ittenbach ("Beyond the limits") was responsible for the blood´n´gore effects in BloodRayne. "It was the bloodiest movie I´ve ever made", explains Boll, "we've used hundreds of gallons of Blood."

BloodRayne will be released this Friday, January 6, in mor...
