Uwe Boll Ending Film Career

Film director Uwe Boll is saying goodbye to Hollywood, or the b-movie equivalent where he's plied his trade, saying he will no longer be making movies. Dark Horizons has the details that say he's not only done ruining video game properties, but other scripts as well. Boll states the decline in DVD/Blu-Ray sales is the reason he can't make money anymore. He says this is because he has been self-funding his projects. "I never had people giving me money. I’ve been using my money since 2005 and if I hadn’t made the stupid video game based movies I would never have amalgamated the capital so I could say, ‘Let’s make the Darfur movie’," he explains. "I don’t need a Ferrari, I don’t need a yacht. I invested in my own movies and I lost money." According to Box Office Mojo, Boll's five biggest movies grossed a total of $41.2 million worldwide, so the idea that these allowed him to fund other movies reinforces the understanding that his projects were in part supported by German tax laws.

That's too bad. His movies were shit, but shit movies have their time and place to be viewed, if only to laugh your ass off at how bad they are and marvel at how they got made.

I know a lot of gamers have a hate boner for Uwe Boll for butchering their beloved franchises, but hindsight has shown us that even when vastly more talented directors with vastly more money try it, they STILL butcher video game movies.

At least Uwe Boll was wasting less money than these other people, and you knew what you were getting.

With these big shot Hollywood video game movies there's always a sense of disappointment because deep down there was a small spark of hope that with all the talented people involved THIS video game movie would be the one that didn't suck.

With Uwe Boll there was no disappointment because the expectations were so fucking low to begin with.
