"What the Fuck Was the Title of That Movie"

Uwe Boll speaking on his numerous Razzie Nominations this year:

“that I’m this time also nominated as best supporting actor against stars like BEN KINGSLEY and PIERCE BROSNAN shows that my genius comes more and more into his peak stadium! all my three movies are nominated in different categories: IN THE NAME OF THE KING (what an epic masterpiece with tons of stars like jason statham), TUNNELRATS (against Tunnelrats Clint Eastwoods bullshit Letters of Imovio ..or what the fuck was the title of that movie …is an amateurclip of brainwashed patriots) and of course POSTAL (where Dave Foley dick is in a very nice shot –i created in inspiration of Jean Luc Gordards work in the sixties…you remember: the black and white stuff with jean paul belmondo…and Verne Troyer gets raped by 1000 monkeys (this was inspired by the later work of Gus van Sant .especially the work he is doing in his trailers…).!
I never won a razzie …but this year I’m sure that there is no way around Uwe Boll so that finally I get the award I deserve!”

I guarantee you he wasn't saying that to be funny, either. And if you're wondering, I am almost 100% certain this is real because I've actually been in contact with the man and received replies like this.

Boll is up for a lot of Razzies this year including Worst Picture (In the Name of the King: a Dungeon Siege Tale), Worst Supporting Actor (as himself in Postal) and the Special Award for Worst Career Achievement, but my favorite is Worst Screen Couple ("Uwe Boll and any actor, camera and screenplay").

This is something I never, ever thought I'd write or say anywhere, but...

... I don't think Uwe Boll deserves to be nominated for any Razzies this year. "In the Name of the King" was really so much of a bad film as it was a REALLY FUCKING BORING one that looked like someone had smeared shit all over the camera lense. There were actually a couple of decent fight scenes. And parts on "Postal" were actually funny INTENTIONALLY.

I have no doubt he'll break this run of almost-but-not-quite competancy with "FarCry," though.

Yeah, Uwe had a decent (relatively) year. 2003 should have been his time at the Razzies, what with that being the year that he so kindly delivered "House of the Dead" to cinemas. How that movie avoided even being nominated for Razzies is a mystery. Unless the committee decided to give it a pass just because it brings such tremendous joy to the life of anyone who finds bad movies funny.
