I thought Michael's response was rather classy.
I for one, don't hate Uwe Boll, but I have the upmost respect for the guy because he's doing what he loves, even if he is making horrible abomnations and audience anal-rape sessions of unspeakable fucking bullfuck rape shit. However, I hate to say it, Postal does look kinda funny, and I heard he plays himself as a pedophile in that, not to mention the clips I saw, I kinda cracked up at.
I think Uwe's threatened he's no-longer the world's worst filmmaker, those two morons behind DATE MOVIE, EPIC MOVIE, and MEET THE SPARTANS are. And their movies, for some odd fucking reason, make decent money, whereas all of Boll's theatrical releases have made probably 14, maybe 15 million total.
With all that useless shit said, I condemn the statement about calling Bay, Eli Roth, and George Clooney retards when they've practically braught some originality to Hollywood. Lemme be specific.
Michael Bay has his own haters, specifically that hero dude or whatever the hell his name is on here, but shit, Bay has come up with some of the best theatrical experinces I ever had, especially with Transformers. Not to mention he's very good with his DP's, not to mention a good cameraman himself.
Eli Roth. As a horror fan from the age of 5, when I saw Stephen King's The Stand premiere on ABC back in 1994, I've been waiting for someone to kinda bring some originality to the genre. Cabin Fever was great, as it mixed some rather cringe inducing scenes with some really good satire. Hostel was pretty fucking brilliant, I don't care what anyone says, because you really have to dig into the whole American international relations of it, and because the concept was just horrifying enough. Horror may almost be lost to these goofy ass PG-13 kid-friendly, pussy-ass, bitch movies like The Ring, or The Grudge, or Prom Night (WHY THE FUCK IS IT #1!?), but Eli Roth still cranks em out for the old school horror fans.
George Clooney. The guy practically does it all. Acting, Writing, Directing. What the hell, he's actually not a complete scumbag either, maybe a little smug, but if I were him, I would be too.
With all said, Uwe Boll really shot his mouth off, and I think hes trying to just to build up any sort of press for Postal, which comes out oppisite Indy 4. An obvious DOA. I think he is getting way too much attention for this shit, and what he said was just out of line. Especially when talking about some folks who have rather contributed to movies. Ok, I'll shut the fuck up now.
