Stop Uwe Boll From Making Movies
How was this a obvious joke at all? I highly dobut anyone on this site thinks you were joking about it.
It’s a joke because we’re talking about a horribly awful director and making fun of him. I think that’s pretty funny, I didn’t take it serious at all.
Anyways he can go ahead a ruin video game movies
In actual seriousness for what this thread is, I’d like to point out that he’s not just making horrible video games. He’s also creating a HUGE stereotype about what a common person would perceive a video game movie to be, whether good or bad. If he keeps making more and more, video game movies will eventually never happen again because everybody automatically assumes they’re crap.
Problem is, not all video game movies were crap. D&D 2 Wrath of the Dragon God, Silent Hill, Mortal Kombat 1, Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children, these are a few examples of at least moderately okay movies. Two of those movies came after Uwe Boll started making video game movies, and both were perceived as horrible movies before they even came out. So him making video movies is a bad thing not just for his movies but because of the negative externalities he causes.
Oh, and one more thing. Your idea that online petitions never succeed, bullshit.
All four of those are online petitions and had SOME effect on what it stands for, whether successful, or simply getting the attention of who the petition is for and having him/her consider it. For example, if there were no online petition, Tony Blaire might not have even considered the negative effects of Road Pricing, or rather, he might have ignored them. With this petition, he’s allowing a debate about it.
