>The director said it was just a publicity stunt and then proceeded to ko them all in a boxing match. top man. fuck the critics
“The dude after me was throwing up and had an EMT by his side for about an hour. He eventually had to have an oxygen mask on. The dude after him was all bloodied up and looked like crap. They too made the mistake of believing Uwe Boll when he said it was just a PR thing, since neither really trained.”
A German film-maker repeatedly panned for making bad films has been – quite literally – hitting back at his critics in a boxing ring in the Canadian city of Vancouver.
Director Uwe Boll took on four of his critics in a boxing match, after he became so annoyed at the barrage of abuse he received from them.
One critic said the horror movie-making Mr Boll was one of the “most inept film-makers ever”.
But it was the director, now dubbed “Raging Boll”, who emerged victorious from a boxing ring in Vancouver, watched by a crowd of 600 people.
After knocking his detractors out in the ring, Mr Boll accused them of judging his films unfairly.
“If you make a zombie movie like House of the Dead, what are they expecting? Schindler’s List?” he asked.
Critic Jeff Sneider of Ain’t It Cool News did fight back, but not in the ring.
He said Mr Boll had told him the match would be a publicity stunt.
“I think he’s a jerk,” said Mr Sneider after the fight. “This might be PR, but I don’t want to keep getting punched in the head.”
Another critic said he did manage to punch Mr Boll in the face a couple of times, calling it revenge for Boll’s latest film, BloodRayne, a vampire flick starring Ben Kingsley.
Here is another quote from the director about a previous film. this guy is so classically German its ridiculous.
“They were better than actors. We looked for local Romanian actresses, but there they are all from the theater and act very broadly. For 150 euros a piece the whores would be naked and do as they were told. It was better.” (in an interview for Bloodrayne: The Movie talking about why he chose to use prostitutes instead of actual actresses
