I see no reason to vote. Ehm, btw, what are you doing here? Aren't you supposed to be on multiply?

I hope he makes a million movies!

I will - of course - exercise my prerogative to ignore them all.

Who the fuck is Uwe Boll? (1)

Yeah, I don't get it. (1)

If you don't like his movies, don't see them. Who gives a fuck if he keeps making them? He's probably laughing his ass off at the free publicity. If he can make money making shitty movies, more power to him.

The thing is, he basically doesn't get paid by the box-office to make his movies. He gets funded almost exclusively through German Gov't grants. Realistically, no one outside of Germany should care. I know I, for one, would be mortified if my government was giving millions away to some director to make cinematic abortions like he does.

As long as he is operating within the rules required to obtain the funding, I still don't see the problem. If you don't want people getting government funding to make shitty movies, change the laws. Otherwise, shut the fuck up (not directed at you personally).
