Save the World from Uwe Boll -- How You Can Help

Uwe Boll has finally revealed what it'll take for him to stop laying turds in the movie theaters of America:

Ladies and Gentleman, we finally have a chance to rid the cinematic world of a cancer. Uwe Boll, the German director behind such horrid video game adaptations as House of the Dead, BloodRayne, Dungeon Siege and Postal, has recently admitted that he would retire from making movies if enough people want him to stop. When FearNet mentioned to Boll a petition online signed by 18,000 people requesting that he cease making films, Boll responded that "18,000 is not enough to convince me." So how much would be enough?

"One million,” Boll said. “Now we have a new goal."
The petition is here.

Keep clicking refresh on the petition to see how many people are signing it. It's going at a rate of about 1 signature per SECOND, sometimes more.

Direct it towards Halle Berry, like the rest of us.

Signed.

I think this is pretty lame. His movies are pretty easy to avoid, and I guarantee he is not keeping someone else from making a better movie.

He's atleast an interesting person, and I imagine his movies are fun to laugh at. I never seen one, though. Maybe someday.

Imagination is a fun thing. Watch his movies, then report back here.

You don't really think this petition is going to do anything, do you? You cannot be that naive.

I'm sure Boll loves to see his name make news, like when he wanted to literally fight his critics, and he's playing all you signers like a fiddle.

Wouldn't it be easier to just stop seeing his crappy movies so he never gets a directing job again?

I like that Uwe Boll makes movies that piss off the fanboys. I hope he never stops.

I wish there was a "Please Uwe Boll, continue making movies" petition, I'd sign in a heartbeat.

Thank you for making us see the light. And here I thought that Internet Petitions solved everything.

QFT. This "petition" will just fuel him to keep on doing what he's doing.

Signed it, but I wouldn't care if he stopped making movies or not. Never seen any of his films and never will.

Actually, I do -- I think it's going to piss him off when critics start mentioning this in their reviews, and interviewers start asking about it in interviews. And that's the whole point -- to see his reaction when someone tells him that a million people want him to quit making movies.

I signed it just for the heck of it, I don't think it'll do anything one way or the other. I also would sorta hate for him to stop, just because I love seeing how extreme some people get when reviewing his flicks.

I do find it funny how quickly people are signing it though.

Yeah, but giving one of his films a bad review is kinda like shooting fish in a barrel.


But if he stops making movies, where will the careers of washed up actors go to die?

In the less than 10 seconds it took for me to click to see what number I was, 7 more people had signed it.

up to 79109 before I even post this response.

Wow.
