The Uwe Boll Totally Awesome Videogames Filmmaking Competition

G4's Attack of the Show Website has full rules and details on The Uwe Boll Totally Awesome Videogames Filmmaking Competition, though the name pretty much sums it up. Do you think you can make better movies than Uwe Boll? Of course you do, so here's word on your chance to do it:

Got a great idea for a video game movie, but playing video games has ruined your attention span and you can't concentrate long enough to make it? “Attack of the Show” wants you to send in a movie trailer inspired by your favorite video game(s) to our G4 Panel, for The Uwe Boll Totally Awesome Videogames Filmmaking Competition, where we will find the best entries based on creativity and technical execution.

The top two finalists will be hand-picked by “AOTS” hosts, Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn, and the two teams will be flown to Fantastic Fest film festival in Austin, Texas (www.fantasticfest.com), where the best trailer will be chosen and announced by the amazing Dr. Uwe Boll himself!

Putting 'Totally Awesome' and 'Uwe Boll' in the same sentence should be a felony. Given the fact that Boll can't make a movie worth watching, how will he be able to pick the better of two trailers? Hell, he could start by following the first bit of 'advice' he gave in that video clip!

Whose definition of 'offensive' are they going to use? Does that mean you can't make a Wolfenstein-inspired trailer because someone will find swastikas offensive? By the same token, that would probably rule out a Left 4 Dead trailer set in the deep South, as well.
