Uwe Boll is at it again. In a latest video discussing his movie "Postal", he apparently challenges Michael Bay to a fight. No response has come from the Bay camp on this video, but we will keep you posted on the events to come, if any.

Seriousely... Bol needs to shut the **** up. He is getting attention with his whining, but this is just pathetic.

I shouldn't be paying attention to what he has to say, but I'm just getting pissed off. I mean, learn how to make movies man!

Boll is just trying to get publicity for his next box ofice failure.

Uwe should just be a boxer for God's sake. Lord knows he can't make a movie to save his ass, but he's not too bad in the ring. He's no De La Hoya, but you know..

Last time I heard of Boll in the news, he beat up some critics in a boxing match. Not again... #-o

His boxing skills may resemble Oscar, but Uwe's level of intelligence reminds me more of Daisy De La Hoya.

Did he make the poster himself? Or did his camp do it? Someone should let them know that "Mandalay" is spelled incorrectly.

I'm not surprised he's done this after doing the same thing when he was promoting Postal. He's got to learn to accept criticism without resorting to name calling and violence, but then I guess if he did that he'd have no publicity as no one would pay much attention to him. Hopefully either game companies stop allowing him access to the rights or he stops making game movies or movies in general.
What started him making movies based on games anyways?

This might be a good thing. All bay knows is explosions so he would most likely just Have the ring blow up with that horrid director (Not Bay) in it. Seriously though they both need to shut up. Boll most of all. Bay has made decent movies that can be watched. Boll has not. All his movies were horrible.

This director that's the greatest in his own mind. Did a series of movies based off videogames (House of the Dead and Bloodrayne to name a couple), can't take criticism worth his life and thinks he's going to eventually direct the MGS movie despite Kojima saying Boll is the last person he'd let helm said film.

He is too %^&%in' old to even suggest such a thing. There should come a time in a man's life when he realizes that he should only fight to protect his loved ones, and even his hard earned possessions. But to get riled up over hearsay is shear immaturity. Groan a$$ men should not even make comments like that. If Bay responds he is degrading himself. Throwing knuckles should only be a last resort.

"You criticize me, so I'm going to hit you," horribly immature, but seemingly par for the course for Boll.

Uwe Boll is a guy who can't even make back half his budget. Michael Bay, while he's no Scorsese, tends to make boatloads of cash.

EDIT: Not an exact quote, but it's what I'm getting from all this.

Posted by T-Macksimus on April 28th, 2008 @ 7:49pm CDT
The only response Bay needs to give to this guy is to open his wallet and ask Boll "Can you break a thousand for me?" to which he would have to follow with "didn't think so..." and walk away! Boll isn't worth the sweat off of Bay's a**.

Bay would probably turn down the challenge because he's just too good for that.
*Explosions in the background*

Perhaps he'll make a joke of it in TF2.

How does having a fight prove who is the best director? I thought checking reviews and box office turnover would clear that up.

Yeah, but since Uwe Boll has bad reviews and almost non-existent box-office take, he has to fight people so he can prove he's better than everyone.

Of course, all this proves is that he's a bully with delusions of grandeur, and can't accept that his movies are no good.

He's under the impression that Postal--a movie that begins by making fun of 9/11--is going to do better than Indiana Jones 4.

This video is his response to a petition asking him to stop making video game movies, this is where he put down MB in the first place. That he expected a serious response from this makes him a jerk in my book.

Is that the same petition where he responded that he might consider to quit his job as a director if the signatures hits the 1 million mark?

I don't know who Uwe Boll is. Looking at IMDB, I can't recall seeing trailers for any of those films, letalone the movies themselves.

However, I do find it endlessly fascinating to see Bay described as "too good for [Boll]" and ppl leaping to his defence; you know, the guy who 12 months ago was getting death threats and being pre-emptively blamed for the inevitable, forthcoming ruination of the franchise, that would finally, once and for all, destroy it forever.

It's like that old saying my grandmother taught me: every new Transformers is RUINED, until it's not.

Who said I was defending him I am all for this fight. Heck, I wanna see a live from Las Vegas Dennis Leary hosted Locked deathcage match between Boll and Bay.

Ok, Uwe Boll is a mosquito and nothing more, he's obviously just trying to stir the pot and call attention to himself negative attention or otherwise just to keep his name in the press...well with his box office bombs get it in the press to begin with.

If a "retard" as he calls Bay can put together a pretty decent crew of people and revitalize the transformers franchise then more power to him, Bay may not be perfect but at least his movies on the whole are more widely accepted and are successful.

Uwe Boll claims to be "the only genius in the whole freakin business", he's a genius at failing and is precisely why all of his movies have to be made or subsidized in germany because nobody in hollywood would or should give him one red penny, I know I wouldn't if I were approached by him.

Uwe Boll is primarily known for making video game adaptations, and showing the property he handles NO RESPECT. While you could apply this to Michael Bay, you'd first have to realize that Boll does it to a much greater extreme.

And he's apparently very arrogant, which is why he considers himself the "Only f*cking genius in the business" yet makes no money, and is universally panned by critics.

Sweet. Then I'll remember to point out how much worse it could be when the bitching about the "Bayformers" resumes in the lead-up to TF2. Sunrise, sunset... sunrise, sunset...
