Sam Seed, an insane mass murderer, is scheduled for execution at the hands of Warden Wright. Before the executioner throws the switch, Wright steps in front of Seed, “Do you have any last words?” Seed, “ I’ll see you again.”

After three attempts to electrocute, complete with boiling blood that steeps from his eyes, he’s still alive.  The executioner, Wright & the doctor collectively agree, that the breathing Seed be pronounced dead. He is bound and buried alive. After biting & clawing his way to the surface, Seed, the blood soaked, enraged madman, is now bent on vengeance.

Towards the end of the filming of the “Postal” the 5 most outspoken critics will be flown into Vancouver and supplied with hotel rooms.  As a guest of Uwe Boll they will be given the chance to be an extra / stand-in in “Postal” and have the opportunity to put on boxing gloves and enter a BOXING RING  to fight Uwe Boll. Each critic will have the opportunity to bring down Uwe in a 10 bout match.  There will be 5 matches planned over the last two days of the movie. Certain scenes from these boxing matches will become part of the Postal movie. All 5 fights will be televised on the internet and will be covered by international press.

i will come out of my (unintentional) absence briefly to state that based on his publicity tactics alone, i declare uwe boll to be a genius. i sincerely believe that those who poke fun of the man and wish to achieve a goal of making movies and getting them seen have a lot to learn from the good doctor.
The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

I agree with you somewhat.  I don't agree that people watch his movies (they do poorly in America, and just barely make a profit through non-English speaking countries, because they can't understand the probably laughable dialogue), but I do think that filmmakers are generally a boring bunch of sods.  Boll is at least more creative than most of them.  I like a performance art element to anything.

Bergman always wanted to fight his critics; Boll found a way to.  Even if his movies are terrible, I prefer a man like this working than a wishy washy something something.  And at least in both his life and in his films, he's not just doing what everybody else is doing.  He's doing everything worse, but it's not what everybody else is doing!  I have a certain respect for that, since I consider total unoriginality the greatest sin in any art form.  Better a horrendous out-there film or behavior than mimicry.

So I find Ravi's Herzog comparison a few posts above to be apt.  Herzog is the more talented filmmaker--the only one of the two that anyone can take seriously--but the boldness and raw personality that is put into everything that both of these guys do is admirable.  Herzog might be God and Boll the Devil, but I'm not going to stand here and say that I can't find anything about the Devil to be respectable.

I think those are some overreactions to a few publicity stunts.  I don't think a few lawsuits and bad interviews and this boxing match really makes uwe boll some kinda madman genius.  the only thing mad is how he doesn't realize that his movies are bad.  there is a big difference between suing actors or publicized boxing matches and going to a volcano about to erupt for the sake of the images.  I think all this undeserved praise for boll goes to show how tame the directors have gotten, especially in the US.  I think there are plenty of filmmakers who are madder, the media just isn't as fascinated with them.

Good points.  Thinking it over, I agree with you.  I was putting too much into what Boll is doing, and US directors are mostly very boring.  I'm not saying that they have to do weird shit in their life, of course.  I don't think that filmmakers have to be mad, either.  They just shouldn't be Joe Uninteresting (in their work; I don't really care what they do in their life).

But yeah, what Boll is doing is only mildly interesting.  You're right about that.

Hit me, one more time: critics snub director's fight challenge
Source: Guardian Unlimited
 
Uwe Boll, the pugnacious German director whose oeuvre includes such vilified pictures as House of the Dead and Alone in the Dark, was fuming this week after critics snubbed his now notorious boxing challenge.

Back in June Boll dared his harshest detractors to get in the ring with him and settle old scores following a wave of dire reviews for the fantasy release BloodRayne, which stars Ben Kingsley and Kristanna Loken.

To sweeten the deal the man often described by genre fans as the worst director of all time offered to fly out the five most vindictive writers to the Vancouver set of his upcoming video game adaptation Postal. Boll would put them up in a hotel before filming the contests.

As it turns out only one person, a 16-year-old online correspondent, has accepted the Teutonic test, which was recently downgraded from a 10-round bout officiated by a professional referee to a three-round amateur contest.

Playground rules dictate that such a deafening silence should entitle Boll to an almighty dose of gloating and much swelling of man-pride, but of course the man's not happy and has wasted little time lambasting his faceless foes.

"Where are my harshest critics from the IMDb and other websites hiding?" the film-maker said in a menacing statement released this week. "Are they chickening out? Many have said they will fight me but they never register to fight.

"Where are all the other outspoken critics, critics who claim that they have registered for the boxing match, but in fact have not. Where is Headhunter004? Where are the rest of you?"

Subject to the shooting schedule for Postal, Boll, a former amateur boxer himself, will now stage five bouts in mid September, with exact dates to follow shortly. The best fights will end up in Postal.

"To all of my extreme critics, be man enough to come forward, register and let's get it on," Boll added. "Here's your chance to bring me down in front of international press and TV cameras. Have it recorded for history by being part of my next feature film, Postal... put up or shut up!"

Jesus Christ, and I thought Kevin Smith spent too much time worrying about what people online think of him...

What Uwe Boll (I'm sorry, Doctor Uwe Boll) doesn't seem to realize is that, no matter who wins and who loses in these little slapfights of his, it's not going to make him any better a filmmaker.  It's not as though Headhunter004 is going to go down by technical knockout in the fourth round, stand up, shake his hand, and say, "I stand corrected.  'Alone in the Dark' was a shining example of excellence in the medium of the moving picture.  You, sir, are both an artist and a gentleman.  And Tara Reid was totally believable as a brilliant anthropologist."  I mean, seriously.  Who even talks like that?
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Boll Seeks Borat
Source" Cinema Blend

The comedic character, Borat, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, has a huge following. Among those who appreciate Borat’s humor: filmmaker (and we use that term loosely) Uwe Boll.

According to Skewed and Reviewed’s Gareth, Uwe Boll has been talking to Sacha Baron Cohen about playing the role of Osama in his upcoming film Postal. The action/comedy film is (of course) based on a video game. This is the same movie Boll offered to box film critics in, although no news has come on him actually taking anyone up on his challenge.

Who will be Uwe Boll's Punching Bags       
 
We have it here first, who will be taking on Uwe Boll as part of the movie "Postal"


GoldenPalace.com sponsors filmmaker’s revenge

MONDAY, AUGUST 21, 2006, VANCOUVER, BC -- GoldenPalace.com is proud to present Raging Boll. Uwe Boll, the German filmmaker best known for several video game based films like ‘Alone in the Dark’, ‘House of the Dead’, 'BloodRayne’ & ‘In The Name of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale’, is considered by many critics to be one of the world’s worst filmmakers.

His movies, however, have made him more money than his critics will earn in several lifetimes.

After receiving a slew of horrid reviews for his latest film “BloodRayne” earlier this year, Boll was incensed and did what any successful filmmaker would do - challenged his detractors to a boxing match to knock some sense into them and settle the score.

“Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand Internet voices,” claims Boll. “Half of those opinions come from people who’ve never watched my films.”

Boll proposed a 3-round match against anyone with the guts to step into the ring with him.

The matches would receive international exposure and be filmed as part of his next feature film, ‘Postal’.

Given their history of unique marketing campaigns, Internet casino GoldenPalace.com  jumped at the chance to sponsor this event, now titled GoldenPalace.com Presents Raging Boll. Over the years, they have become widely recognized for sponsoring high-profile boxers, athletes, and celebrities.

“This event is perfect for us,” said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. “We receive so many outlandish offers for advertising exposure that it is refreshing to see something that surprises even us. That is why we decided to get involved. This has gotten so much attention so far, and we can’t wait to see how it will turn out.” 

Four matches are currently scheduled for September 23 and one match planned earlier in Spain for a total of five opponents.

Boll is ready to take on even more people willing to fight, and his challenge remains on the table.

There are some critics who chickened out and didn’t follow through with their challenges.

The following 5 challengers have been picked by our selection committee to represent some of Uwe Boll’s harshest critics.

These particular challengers are prepared to box Dr. Boll on September 23rd, 2006, in Vancouver, where they will finally get the opportunity to try to inflict some pain on the man they claim has done it to them for years.

GoldenPalace.com Presents Raging Boll.

The challengers are:

Carlos Palencia Jiménez-Argüello from Madrid, Spain.
         Webmaster of www.cinecutre.com 
   
Richard  “Lowtax“ Kyanka from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, USA
        Webmaster / CEO for Something Awful

Jeff Sneider from Los Angeles, California, USA
       Journalist for Ain't It Cool News

Chris Alexander from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
       Journalist / Radio Announcer for Rue Morgue
       Magazine / Rue Morgue Radio / AM 640 Toronto

Nelson Chance Minter from Fredrick, Maryland, USA
      Website Critic           
 

The Carlos Palencia / Uwe Boll fight will occur in Malaga, Spain early in September. The date in Spain is still to be confirmed.

The actual fight will be filmed for inclusion with the other Vancouver fights.

With Uwe Boll receiving a film award from the International Film Festival of Fantastic Cinema and Terror in Malaga, Spain for his work with BloodRayne, this gives us the opportunity to hold our first fight in Spain.
                                 
Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears’ Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner’s Kidney Stone have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino. GoldenPalace.com has also used their items and marketing to raise awareness and funds for over $1,000,000 for various charities worldwide.

Still, It's Better Than BloodRayne
Source: Cinematical

So after weeks of not caring at all (and for good reason), video footage of junk-lenser Uwe Boll fighting one of his detractors has just arrived online. And, hoo boy -- what a treat it is! YouTube tells us it's "Uwe vs. Oso," although if you look back over the list of battlers, you won't find an Oso there. I'm pretty sure that Uwe (black T-shirt) is throwing fists with one Carlos Palencia of Cinecutre.com -- and I'm only guessing that way because I heard a lot of Spanish on the video.
