Why should I see your films?
Spørsmål fra Vidar Daatland:
Hi Mr. Boll!
I love to see films, but there is so many films to see and so little time. There are still films by people like Bergman, Lynch and Cameron that I have yet to see. I've never seen any of your films. People tell me your movies are "crap" (not my words, I have no idea since I've yet to see any of your work).
So, the question is: Can you give me a good reason to put more known movies on hold and instead watch one of your movies? And of all your movies, which would you recommend the most?I made a lot of different movies. If you like comedies you should definitly see POSTAL....its my favorite film.If you like Horror - you should see SEED or my BLOODRAYNE movies. If you like epic you should check out IN tHE NAME OF THE KING.My goal is not to make masterpieces - my goal is to make interesting, edgy moviesBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:25
Your relationship to videogames:
Spørsmål fra Thomas Johan:
This is probably a silly question, but I can't remember finding an answer to it anywhere so here goes:
Why do you make movie-adaptions out of videogames?
Is it because you share an interest in videogames and would like to see them "realised" as a movie?
Do you think you're make videogamers a favor by adapting them, and therefore might find a vital income source?
Or are you simply inspired by them?
Videogames are like comic books or books ..good foundations for movies ..interesting ...and they have a fan base ...so irs easier to market the moviesBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:26
Don't you feel "dirty"?
Spørsmål fra Anders Lund:
You have commented that you use a "loop-hole" in the German tax law when it comes to getting moneyfor your movies.
As I understand it the goverment gives you back pretty much 100% of the cost.
Don't you feel dirty that you must "cheat" to succeed in making movies?this is wrong and it shows how much bullshit is about me in the press. you could get 50% tax loss if you invested in a movie but even that is OVER since 2005.by the way: i think that i was able to get private investors in a country like germany where everybody else worked only with SUBSIDIES (and this is 100% tax money).so why i should feel dirty ?Besvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:29
The only genius in the whole fucking business
Spørsmål fra Lars Pedersen:
First and foremost I'll have to mention that I'm a huge fan of your work and hope that this "meet and greet" doesn't get spoiled by juvenile questions.
I just recently watched one of your earlier movies, Amoklauf, and I must say that I'm really impressed. It's a great horror flick.
But it seems that the users of IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base) doesn't agree with me and my fellow reviewers (all the reviews are positive, varying from 7- to 8/10), as the movie is rated 1.7/10 and is positioned on the "Bottom 100"-list.
And it's here my question originates; do you feel that you don't get the credit that you actually deserve, because the audience doesn't always give your movies a fair chance?
I'm sure that all of the 605 (72.8% of the total number of) people that gave Amoflauf a 1/10, actually haven't seen the movie at all. It's just a freaking elitist internet mob that has set out to bring all your movies down into the mud.
Another question: How is Stoic coming along? What seperates it from your earlier work (besides that it is not based on a video game)?
And one last question: If you were to have a boxing match with an opponent of your choice, who would it be?
LarsPI have tons of people who HATE my movies without LOOKING the movies and this unfair assholes judging every single of my movie down on IMDB.No other directors has this problem. I hope it will changeBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:32
Spørsmål fra Jan E Paulsen:
Hi Mr. Boll
This is a two-parter
Your "style" in itself can be considered original in the sense that it doesn't resemble anything else, but it's often considered crude or unpolished.
I'm curious to know if you have some source of inspiration which you would credit your work to. A filmmaker or a film you feel has inspired, and driven you to where you are now.
Also, "video game to film" has been digging a disreputable ditch for itself over the last decade, which you (and Paul W.S. Anderson) can be considered to be the main architects of, my question here is;
Do you feel that video game inspired films have tendencies to be pre-judged?yes .-..they get prejudged ...this is the reason with SEED and now TUNNELRATS and STOIC I changed my style and subjects mattersBut in general I dont have a Uwe Boll style ...i like dry . hard, edgy .... but i tell the story ---straight and not with an uwe boll styleBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:36

Spørsmål fra Andreas:
How come you challenge reviewers to a boxing match if you don't like their reviews?

Keep it up!!
Spørsmål fra Anders Dal:
Dispite all the negativ comments towards you, I just want to say: Keep it up! You can only get better!
On that note, what tips can you give a "normal" guy like me on how to get into the movie buisness?
I have a script I have been working on for a few years and would love to get someone to look at it....or maybe even get you to make it?

Spørsmål fra Tommy:
Why do you keep making movies based on videogames? Your movies aren't exactly a success? Never thought of making other movies? I mean not based on a game, but something you can figure out bu yourself. But I look forward to Far Cry as I am a huge fan of the videogame. But I'm a bit sceptic as well.FAR CRY is the movie i could stay closest to the game story - great jack carver character - great storyand on DVD my movies are everywhere big successes ..and KING for example was number 1in 20 countries in the box officeBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:45
Games and Movies.
Spørsmål fra BadSmile:
You made your own game (1968 Tunnel Rats ), and then you are going to make a movie of it. Did you get tired to make movies of games made by others?
Or is their games too good to make movie of, that you desided to make your own game less good, so you can easily make a movie of it?i made the movie Tunnelrats before we made the game ...check out the trailers and making of on YOUTUBEBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:46
Just for the money?
Spørsmål fra Alexander Larsen:
How is it possible to always create sub-par movies out of really good background stories and pre-created characters with long histories? (Like Blood Rayne, a movie with a paperthin history, no character building and costumes/sets which looks like they are made by pre-school class)
Are you in it (moviemaking) just because slapping together a direct-to-video "game movie", that does not live up to the story around the game and it's quality, is easy money?A lot of times you have in a game no story but a great hero...like in BLOODRAYNE ... Iloved her look. that she needs sex and blood to survive etc...so i made a story upBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:47
House of The Dead
Spørsmål fra Knut Olav:
Can you tell about the creative writing process with the movie House of The Dead? Do you think you treated the game with respect and got a good result?i made a splatter movie based on a splatter game ...i made now a funny directors cut of it and im way more happy with thisBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:49

The Fun Of It?
Spørsmål fra Even Lilleskog:
Although your movies haven't had financial or critical sucesses, is it the fun of making movies that keeps you going?sometimes its hard to handle the stress ...but my movies are more successfull as 80% of the produced movies ..because i produce them also and i do direct deals with 80 countries ...there is no third party in betweenBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 19:55
Spørsmål fra Jan-Erik:
I must admit; I loved "House of the Dead". Continuing.
You've mocked a lot of people, movements, etc. during the past years. Still, something is missing. The good old Nazi-Germany. How about a delicious mix of Wolfenstein and Dr. Adolf?

Rumour has it that one of the reason you managed to produce your older movies was that in the german tax system, there is a "loophole" that allows investors to write off money they have invested in movies.

How do you manage to raise the money you need to make your movies nowadays?

Differences between games and movie counterparts
Spørsmål fra Ove Nilsen:
After having watched a few of your movies, one question that have been buggering me is the following:
The games themselves and their movie counterparts seem in most cases to differ a lot. For instance, Alone in the Dark were reduced from a Lovecraft-inspired Gothic horror-adventure game into a run of the mill monster movie. Is this something you have done in order to get your vision through, or is it simply because that is cheaper this way?we were planning with ATARI to make e new story with ALONE 5 the game and the movie together...but ATARI failed to finish the game...now we made the film ALONE 2 is based on ALONE 5 the game ..horror in the central parkBesvart: 3. okt. 2008 20:51

I've watched all of your movies and enjoyed them thouroughly with one single exeption: Postal. Seriously. What were you thinking? All the other movies kind of had this distinctive atmosphere, this feel, this I don't really know how to describe it but whenever I before watched a Boll movie I used to think about it for days afterwards - I used to love them, but Postal? Garbage. Why have you given up? Why have you become just like those other silly directors already out there making mediocre, stupid movies? Boll! Please go back to making movies like you used to do before - they were so great! It's truly a shame most people are having problems grasping it, but don't sham - they will one day. Whilst Bay and Spielberg are forgotten, you will be the one remembered.

Spørsmål fra Dagon:
I watch every movie based on a videogame because I find interesting to watch how they try to adapt games into films. I have noticed that your movies get allot of abuse, online and offline. Often the reviews and critics get very personal and nasty. I must admit, I don't like your films (have not seen Postal or In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale yet) but the ones I have watch don't suck that bad as Ed Wood (you often get compaired with him) or many other b-films out there. But I am kinda astonished how much bad press you get, so I wonder if you take it personal, all the critics and reviews? I personally would have been a broken man and started a new life. What is that drives you Uwe? Why do you put up with all the shit you have to take for each movie you make? Even if I don't like your movies I hope keep on making em, cause, God knows, diversity is something the movie business needs.

Spørsmål fra Postal Dude Fanboy:
First of all I must admit Postal wasn't so bad, I laughed a lot when I almost only the kids got shot in one of the scenes. I haven't seen any other of your films, but they all said to be pretty bad.
So I wonder why, after so many films, you don't learn from your mistakes? Why don't you listen to the critics, and one by one make better movies?
And are you going to continue making movies? I once red you were quitting, cause of low revenue from your movies.i made in the last 3 years very good movies with postal, seed, tunnelrats etc.Besvart: 3. okt. 2008 20:59
