Uwe Boll Wants to Knock You Out

In a move that can only be interpreted as an admission of incompetence, hack director Uwe Boll has challenged all critics of his flmmaking output to a bout in the ring. That's right, according to the Guardian, Boll has had it with the constant flow of barbs regarding his sloppy work and wants to punch out the lights of anyone gutsy enough to duke it out with him in Vancouver, where he's planning to begin shooting yet another video game adaptation: "Postal."

Part of me wants to see it as a good thing. I mean, a publicity stunt like this has to take up time that might otherwise be spent on his next film. Any delay is welcome. So I say float like a butterfly, Dr. Boll. Sting like a bee. Maybe you should even consider going pro.

Oh, and if you haven't yet signed the petition to keep Boll's dreck off the screens of your local cinemas, you might want to have a look here.

Among Boll's bones of consternation is that people who haven't even seen his movies are slamming him. I don't know how he presumes to know this, but I have seen "House of the Dead," and based on that movie alone I'm inclined to side with Alan Jones, who authored "The Rought Guide to Horror Movies," when he states that "[Boll] is without doubt the worst director in the world."--Pete Mesling
