If you've ever had the displeasure of watching one of this guy's movies, you already know that this is a good cause.

http://www.petitiononline.com/RRH53888/petition.html

Uwe Boll has decided to give us a chance to end his cascade of cinematic vomit. He has said that if an online petition against him reaches 1 million signatures, he will retire from filmmaking.

The petition's only been up for a few weeks and has already reached 250,000 signatures. A good start.

For those of you that don't know, Uwe Boll is a german film director, well known for taking popular video games and making film adaptations of them that are wonderful examples of how not to make a film.

House of the Dead, Bloodrayne, Alone in the Dark and Dead or Alive are all his "artistic" works. If you've seen them, I'm deeply sorry. I hope you didn't pay for the experience.

In case you think this isn't such a big deal, I'd like to mention that until Peter Jackson stepped in like a white knight to save us all from the terrible beast on the horizon, Uwe Boll had the rights to make the Halo movie.

If that don't convince you he needs to be stopped, nothing will.

I signed that petition weeks ago, the man has to be stoped.
At least some ppl have the balls to stand up to him, the VP of Blizzard laught Uve out of his office when he was there trying to get the rights to make a WoW move. He was saying soething like you are the last persom on this earth we would trust to make a movie out of World Of Warcraft Smiley

Wait... you forgot that he's directing "Far Cry"!!
I bet that a clever fan-made montage of scenes taken directly from the video game would achieve better cinematographic results...

I don't believe in those online petitions... but we have to sign anyway...   Roll Eyes

having signed this, I'm here to bump for the great justice that needs to be served to this guy....
I'm proud to say i've never seen any of his movies and hopefully will never have to.

also coincidentally, after getting the finger from blizz, he approached the idea of getting the writes to direct a Metal Gear movie, a mere 48 hours later, Hideo Kojima held a press confrence to inform most of the free gaming world, that Boll was an awful director and would never be allowed anywhere near a metal gear movie in any form...
