Uwe BollOkay, so he’s the maker of bad, bad, really bad movies based on videogames. How one man can love videogames so much (the dude is, like, in his ’40s!) to make so many movies based on videogames is a mystery I don’t think anyone can really answer, and I doubt if the man himself knows. Using a combination of a smooth tongue (how does he talk people into investing and acting in these awful movies???) and a loophole in the German tax system that allows him to fund his expensive movies, Uwe Boll has build up an oeuvre that is as impressive as it is horrid. And while you are free to dislike the man for his bad movies, we think there are some good in him, as Luke Skywalker would say.

As a result, we present you with 5 good reasons to love Uwe Boll. Or at least, hate him just a little bit less…

    At least Uwe isn’t going around bitching about movies he voluntarily did. Admit it, you’re mad because I was right. Your hero Jackie is a whore.

    My two bits:
    a) this dude single-handedly managed to make himself famous by becoming infamous. He has become a benchmark for bad films.
    b) I want an answer to this mystery: how the hell does he get the likes of BEN KINGSLEY, CHRISTIAN SLATER, JASON STATHAM etc. to sign up?
    c) he may (‘may’ being an operative word) have influenced some film makers. For comparison sake watch ‘BLOOD & CHOCOLATE’. You might be forgiven to conclude that it is an Uwe Boll film.

    To WAEL, I got the right answer to question b:

    Actors are whores (like Jackie Chan). Pay them enough and they’ll do anything. Even work for Boll.
