Boll Challenges Critics to Fight

Back in February Uwe Boll revealed to Eurogamer.net that he hoped to give his many critics a chance to appear in his next videogame adaptation, Postal: "I'm in the movie - Uwe Boll will play a minor part. I get killed by my 'Boll haters'." He also stated that he'd be happy for the Boll haters to play themselves.

It turns out Boll is a man of his words. In a press release titled "Uwe Boll challenges his critics to 'Put up or shut up!'", Boll states: "I'm fed up with people slamming my films on the Internet without see[ing] 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."

Boll now challenge his critics to a fight - as in, an actual, physical fight.

"Towards the end of the filming of Postal the five most outspoken critics will be flown into Vancouver and supplied with hotel rooms," the press release states.

"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 five matches planned over the last two days of the movie. Certain scenes from these boxing matches will become part of the Postal movie. All five fights will be televised on the Internet and will be covered by international press."

However there are a few rules for entry: first of all, you must be a man weighing between 140 and 190 pounds (63.5 kg - 86 kg). Secondly, you must have "posted on the Internet or have written in magazines/newspapers at least two extremely negative articles in the year 2005."

If you're eligible to enter you need to submit proof of your negative articles to [email protected].

if you dont like Uwe Boll, DONT PAY TO SEE HIS MOVIES, and he'll dry up and blow away.

Videogame movies = bad already. Videogame movies + Uwe Boll = Satan's excrement. X_x

If everyone just REFUSED to buy tickets/DVDs from Uwe Boll, Paul WS Anderson, Brett Ratner etc, Hollywood would be a much better place.

LMFAO... train wreck... Hell I would sit and listen to a train wreck sound effect and be riveted.

Cyclonus6585d ago (Edited 6585d ago )

In making AVP, Paul(Without Skill)Anderson, single-handedly turned two of the best genre characters in movie history into,at best, B-movie wrestlers.'Aliens' and 'Predator' were PERFECT films, IMO,and Anderson FUBARed em' to hell.

I dont know who this guy is but hey I hope he gets his ass kicked, lol

Lucidmantra6584d ago

Did he make Boogie Nights... LOL. Be glad you haven't seen Uwe's college experiments in filmmaking that he gets paid to much for and people destory good game names with. They are horrible and the scars don't go away... Not even Watching the Loken chic in leather for 90 mins was worth it. They make Daredevil look like an outstanding comic movie.

PS360PCROCKS6584d ago

oh god he made dare devil? that was the lamest movie ever, I wanted to choke myself

Pretty good list. Botany Manor would be the newest addition that encapsulates that title.

There are different games. Some have gamplay at it highest priority, some have the story, some have the replay value and choices... There are a lot of different game experiences.

It is laughable that just now graphics does not have anything to do with that experiene. We have had many games of that type over time. This is just the one that have come closest to feel like playing an actual movie. Just look the the Digital foundry walkthrough it is a masterpiece in that perspective and hence wrth trying. But yes do not do it for the gameplay - but that was never the goal of this experience.

It's because it's on Xbox. When Xbox has amazing graphics, they don't matter. When PlayStation does, it's a game changer!

Lightning7730d ago

Pretty much my thoughts. They were technical marvel's on PS and still are. The moment Xbox puts out a graphically intense game is doesn't matter suddenly.

4 years ago this month would the UE5 tech demo debut with the girl flying (tech demo said it was only possible on PS5 because of the SSD. Glad to finally see it in its glory.

FFS, gaming journalism has really gone downhill. At least hire people with a basic grasp of grammar... "Me neither" means the exact opposite of what the "author" is trying to say. That's like saying "I could care less"... lol.

S2Killinit29d ago

Maybe because the gameplay being dull allowed it to have the amazing graphics and people are not as impressed by graphics alone anymore? I mean there is a lot of sites saying the story and the gameplay are lackluster. So what are we supposed to enjoy then? Cgi graphics are beautiful but since they arent interactive, they dont impress me as much as they used to. Thats an extreme example, but you get my drift.

Terry_B29d ago

When Playstation (Sony) does it..its usually a great game and not a cinematic experience..or at least something new at the time..like Until Dawn back in 2015.

@gamer:” It's because it's on Xbox. When Xbox has amazing graphics, they don't matter. When PlayStation does, it's a game changer!”

The game looks as good as any other PlayStation game in my eyes why can’t you and the other hardcore Xbox be happy about it and drag PlayStation into every conversation and force PlayStation hardcore to look into the game and find flaw that most games have in one way or another.
@light: “ 4 years ago this month would the UE5 tech demo debut with the girl flying (tech demo said it was only possible on PS5 because of the SSD. ”
Yes at that time it was only possible on PlayStation SSD how ignorant of you to think that after 4 years the technology wouldn’t evolved and move to a industry standard 🤦🏿I wish your mentality wasn’t so naive and narrow to post stuff like that 😩 in a year or 2 a new game will come out that might look better, it’s the nature of the industry.

Now that the distraction is gone I feel that is a good thing that the graphics in games are starting to hit the rooftop and hopefully the developers will put more thoughts into story and gameplay mechanics than just the next shiny oily skin of old.

Reaper22_29d ago

So true. Not surprised by all the negativity. It's a really good game and looks better than any game I've ever seen. GOTY nominee for sure. Like I said before, sony screwed up big time by not purchasing Ninja Theory.

Asplundh29d ago

Pretty much. It's like how the Switch and Steam controller using haptic feedback in their controllers wasn't a big deal but then Sony did it and it was then a "game changer".

fr0sty29d ago

The game runs at as low as 21fps... That isn't much to brag about no matter how good it looks.

We've had graphical gamechangers before, such as Crysis but those games still had gameplay to compliment it. Hellblade pretty much has none, and only achieved such graphics through being incredibly linear and having very small, closed off environments where very little is happening.

Vx_29d ago (Edited 29d ago )

GFX does not mean anything if the game is boring. It is simple like that and these major companies need to understand this simple concept.

Games are like your lady, she may be beautiful to look at for a while but then it gets boring if her character isn't interesting and fun to be with.
