Ready linkys....

This guy must die. He makes fucked up movies at no personal cost to him, b/c in Germany the film business can use 100% of it's cost as tax write offs.

I smell a crooked German mafia family using the asshole to launder money, heh.

A small list of movies he'll be fucking up in the future.

Boll is at the helm of the forthcoming projects :
TBA Le Farce (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Le_Farce&action=edit) based on the web comic by the same name
2008 Far Cry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_Cry_%28film%29) to be based on the game Far Cry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_Cry).
2007 Postal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postal_%282007_film%29) to be based on the game Postal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postal_%28computer_game%29).
2006 In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Name_of_the_King) to be based on the game Dungeon Siege (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dungeon_Siege) - Currently in post-production.

"Maybe you know it but it's not so easy to finance movies in total. And the reason I am able to do these kind of movies is I have a tax shelter fund in Germany and if you invest in a movie in Germany you get basically fifty percent back from the Government."

Just because he can, does not give him the right to produce crappy movies.

*shakes head*

Thank God that Germany learned from their mistake and changed the tax laws to remove the tax shelter.

Notorious movie director Dr. Uwe Boll, most well known for his numerous film adaptations of video games, has extended a bizarre offer to his five harshest critics: fly out to Vancouver and face him in the boxing ring. During shooting for his upcoming film Postal, Boll will set aside two days to fight each detractor in a ten bout match. To determine who have been his most vitriolic nemeses, Boll is accepting self-nominations to info@boll-kg.de, which must be accompanied by proof of negative reviews or internet forum comments. Only critical comments from 2005 will be accepted, presumably to ensure that only longstanding critics, rather than those spurred on by this contest, are in the running.

This guy needs help, period.

Aye I saw just after posting that they recently removed the 100% tax shelter status from the movie business.

The guy is just insane, BloodRayne was so different it may as well be called another movie

Erm... Wtf?! A farcry movie? NO! That would just lower the game's quality and my respect for it... Just no. Video games and movies don't mix. (Fanfiction on the other hand...) The company that produced the game should be making an animated movie, not some stupid german dickhead.

By the way, how is it that he doesn't have to pay from his own pockets from this? I thought he just doesn't have to pay taxes for making movies. Will someone explain this to me?

The law allows investors in German-owned films to write off 100% of their investment as a tax deduction; it also allows them to invest borrowed money and write off any fees associated with the loan. The investor is then only required to pay taxes on the profits made by the movie; if the movie loses money, the investor gets a tax writeoff.

If you dont understand what a tax write off is, dont post and dont rant.
The guy basically gets funds from different companies. He pays the bills from the movie creation with the money of the investor and doesnt pay taxes at all. After the film is ready he pays only taxes for the winnings and so in the end doesnt pay for anything, because the loan costs are written of by the taxes. He gets the winnings and everything works out if he plays the finance stuff well.

But now they closed that backdoor for him. The general idea to support german film making wasnt a bad one. It was just bad that the guy took advantage of it. I am just sorry for the people who would have made nice films with these advantages. Film making is expensive.

Hmm...very mature way to handle critism. Wonder if there is going to somekind bet like that if Boll loses the match, he gives up making movies and if critic loses he doesn't criticize Boll's movies anymore.
Anyhow, got to admit that guy doesn't give up easily.

Pretty much, this asshat deserves to be tied up, beaten, violated by Lemmiwinks, then shot.

What a loser. Taking advantage of the German film industry like that, although the industry totally left themself open to that...

Everyone's heard of Uwe Boll. He's an asshat, I'll definitely agree. They ran House of the Dead on the SciFi channel a couple weeks ago, and I watched it out of morbid curiousity. Biggest. Mistake. Evar. One, it was set on an ISLAND. Two, there was a PARTY on the ISLAND. And three, only ONE character had a gun on that island. ONE GUN on the whole freaking island. I'm no expert at military tactics (I'm just intermediate), but one rifle is NOT enough to fight off a horde (let's assume 100+, for the sake of argument) of zombies, no matter which way you stretch it.

I saw another of his movies house of the dead. I was a big fan of the arcade game, but that totally ruined it. They should remove his license to make movies if there is such a thing.
