Uwe Boll's Quotes

  • [about his favorite book, Gustavus Myers' "The History of American Fortunes"] If you follow the money, like the writer did - the history of the Rockefellers and so on - you find out about real history. In that book you learn that the Civil War was not about freeing the slaves, it was all about the money, etc.
  • [about what he learned from his disastrous experience with Alone in the Dark (2005)] That a script matters.
  • [on fighting--and winning--against all of his critics in a boxing ring] You see what happens when people get hit in the head? They like my movies!
  • [asked about how game developers are involved in the making of Postal (2007)] Yeah, they were very involved, this time too much involved, I wrote the script, it's their baby. They liked the treatment, but they didn't like the approach of some stuff, they thought it was too funny, but I said the only way to tell a story like "Postal" is to do it funny, let people laugh. I don't want a movie like Taxi Driver (1976) where a guy is killing everybody, too many movies like that. "Postal" is a movie where everybody is running amok, everyone has good reasons to run amok from the welfare office guy to the police officer. Coming up in two to three weeks, they will be really happy, like our cast . . . I think it will be hilarious.
  • I want to make good movies. Of course, I want to make entertaining movies for the younger audience, and this is a lot of times not working with film critics who are more into drama or art-house movies. But on the other hand, I always try to make solid movies.

Interesting Facts about Uwe Boll

  1. His favorite film of 2005 was Sin City (2005). His favorite film of 2012 was Django Unchained (2012). His favorite film of 2013 was The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
  2. He is good friends with Clint Howard and cast him in Blackwoods (2001), Heart of America (2002), and House of the Dead (2003). He is also good friends with Dominic Purcell and Michael ParΓ©. ParΓ© is in over 15 Boll films.
  3. Challenged his critics in June 2006 to a "put up or shut up" boxing match. His production company issued a press release stating that Boll would challenge his 5 harshest critics each to a 10-round boxing match. To be eligible, the critic must have written two extremely negative reviews of Boll, in print or on the Web, in 2005. The fights are documented in the film Raging Boll (2010). Boll knocked out all opponents.
  4. Was a film critic for a local radio station in the late 1980s.
  5. Cites Apocalypse Now (1979) as his favorite movie.
  6. Has worked with Robin Morningstar on a proposed film of Konami property Contra, which either has resulted in the mock Uwe Boll's Contra trailer by fans on the internet, or the fanbase was unknowingly ironic in its timing.
  7. Planned on making a film based on long running Sega franchise Wonder Boy, with a script by Robin Morningstar. Intentions moved so far along that Caitlin Stasey from Aussie soap Neighbours was attached to a part. When Sega decided to leave the character for all intents and purposes dead, the project collapsed, and was featured as the main news story in issue 51 of Retro Gamer Magazine.
  8. Despite several Razzie Award nominations, including one "win" for Worst Director, not one of the films he has directed has been awarded the Razzie for Worst Picture.
  9. Cites the Trevor Howard / Marlon Brando version of Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) as the film that made him want to be a movie director.
  10. Lists The Searchers (1956), Taxi Driver (1976), Apocalypse Now (1979), Citizen Kane (1941), A Clockwork Orange (1971), and Breaking the Waves (1996) as some of his favorite films.
  11. Considered fighting comedian Ron Sparks when he challenged critics to a boxing match during the filming of Postal (2007) but ultimately declined because of Sparks' age, height and weight advantage - and due to the fact he'd be fighting several challengers back-to-back. Boll ultimately defeated every opponent in the Vancouver matches, which can be seen in the Raging Boll (2010) documentary.
  12. [2010] Empire Magazine's 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever' includes 2 films by Uwe Boll: House of the Dead (2003) (Nr.35) and Alone in the Dark (2005) (Nr. 21). Boll is the only director with 2 films on the list.
  13. Is a fan of District 9 (2009).
  14. An admirer of Michael Haneke's films and the early work of Oliver Stone.
  15. Worked together with Academy Award winners Ben Kingsley and J.K. Simmons, Academy Award nominees Burt Reynolds and Eric Roberts, and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss.
