Uwe Boll critique: How bad and laughable are today’s movies

uwe-boll-moviesUwe Boll has long been criticized for making bad movies. Ever since he surfaced for the wider audience with his “House of the Dead” back in 2003, Boll was criticized by writers, journalists, bloggers, critics, and everyone in between. Sometimes, rightfully so.

Although Boll seems to be improving, and he himself believes he’s no longer the “bad videogame director”. In fact, he recently said he has “moved on”.

“Watched Deer Hunter again. That are the kind of movies were the reason I wanted to make movies, and I went in the movie theaters,” Boll recently wrote on Facebook.

He went on to say that today’s movies are “laughable and bad”.

“All is fake and all is lost today,” he said. “A lot of people write about me as the videogame director, and the worst director ever… I moved ahead, and I try to work with smaller budgets,” he said.

“I have to make existential movies that matter, direct in the face,” he said.

He also threw a few lines towards Robert De Niro, who is considered to be one of the best actors not only of his generation but in the history of cinema as well.

“What a shame to see how all the actors and directors sold out,” Boll said. “I can only imagine how that is for De Niro and the others to play in the sh*t they play today.”

Boll also seemed surprised, as he said it was amazing that some people call movies “good”, as they never saw any classic films.

According to Boll, there are some movies that everybody should watch. His list includes 4 films with Robert De Niro.

“Apocalypse Now, Godfather 1 and 2 , Dances with Wolves, The Searchers, Citizen Kane, The Shining, Citizen Kane, Jaws, French Connection, El Dorado, Once upon a time in the West, Once upon a time in America, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, JFK, Salvador, Born on 4th of July, Platoon, Wall Street” – these are the films Boll advises everyone to see.

One thing is for sure – all of the mentioned films are definitely better than any of Uwe Boll’s movies.
