It never gets old reading about the madcap antics of bad movie director Uwe Boll. This time around, Wired Magazine does a bang-up job of telling the true story of how Boll (infamous for his game to film translations of The House of the Dead, BloodRayne, and Alone in the Dark) challenged his critics to a series of boxing matches.
Wired has this to say about the filmmaker: "Like a modern-day Ed Wood, or a poor man's Michael Bay, Boll appears competent in every aspect of filmmaking except the actual making of the film. His movies are haphazardly scripted, sloppily edited, badly acted and, most crucially, brutally received."
Now, we can add amateur sadist to Boll's list of credits. The man, a trained boxer, decided to beat up nerds to prove his movies were, in fact, great. "I hit them so hard, they have brain damage," Boll proclaimed after he'd finished lumping up his critics—including a 17-year-old boy. "They love my movies now!"
