With the increase of dreck on our movie screens, I pose to you - who needs to get out of Hollywood? Why do studios keep hiring these people? I'm not talking about one or two bombs, but several god awful films. Discuss.

I don't know who most of them are (child of the arthouse, me) - but Joel Schumacher is fucken' awful.

Because he produces the dreck. He's not a director.

Boll Boll Boll Boll Boll Boll Boll *deep breath* Boll Boll BOLL.

FUCKING HELL has he shat on some potentially good franchises. The one advantage of his shiteness is that it meant they could fill the soundtrack of Alone in the Dark with awesome stuff like Bloodbath - Outnumbering the Day, because no-one would ever buy it.

BUT FUCKING HELL THE SUCKAGE.

Was Boll the guy who did Alone in the Dark? Get that fuckshit out of Hollywood!

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

There's a short film up at Ifilm.com about killing Michael Bay.  However, I think it's only available to premium members....

In my opinion they should burn down all of Hollywood(including most of the people), it's a den of stinking evil!

okay I am scared... that Uwe Boll fellow is currently in the process of making a movie for the following games: Dungeon Siege, Far Cry, Bloodrayne, Hunter: the Reckoning.
Dungeon Siege was bad even as a game and the others...god is this guy the devil's bastard son, he is even going to visually rape a White Wolf roleplaying game...I am disturbed...

Uwe Boll was formed whole when Beelzebub accidentally left a sheet of used toilet paper lying in some nuclear waste.

Well apparently he isn't listening, if I had a pitchfork and a mob of angry peasants, I would so lynch the fucker and choke him with ALL the movies he has ever made.

So, what this Boll bloke does is make bad movies out of decent computer games?

He deserves death on the end of a long stick with spikes on it.

Boll makes terrible movies out of decent computer games. Plus he seems to target the most successful games, too...

At least with Paul Anderson, the first Reisdent Evil was a reaonsably enjoyable zombie action film that was watchable if you tried to forget it was supposed to be Resident Evil, and the second one was slightly better than the first, on the same grounds.

Boll just needs to be dead. Right now.

The first resident evil was turned far too much into an evil computer horror, and was not very good.

It was a close call, but I voted for Michael Bay over Joel Shumacher.

Anderson all the way... Alien Vs Predator sucked and was an insult to both franchises, Soldier apparently the orignal script/concept of this film was truely brilliant then he turned up and... well the results speak for themselves

Lets be honest with ourselves, White Wolf took a shit all over their games a long time ago.
