#5. His Movies Suck So Much They’re Brilliant

Who hasn’t watched an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and thought, “Dudes, I can so totally do that!” Well now you can, with the help of Uwe Boll’s movies. Yes, they’re so Godawful that you can pop in a DVD copy, get some bros together, pop some longnecks, and go to town on them.

If you insist on doing this, may I recommend the completely atrocious, beyond-incompetent “House of the Dead” as a starter? Mind you, not that picking any of his films out of bag completely at random wouldn’t do just as well, but you know, “House of the Dead” is especially horrific as to be a good starting point. And for this little (though admittedly unwitting) guilty pleasure that he provides us MST3K wannabes, we think you should cut Uwe Boll a break.

    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.
