Don't know about an anime.. could be good.. could be bad.

I know that Uwe Boll has tried to get SEVERAL big projects (or said he wanted to) like Metal Gear and Halo (I'd love to here their designer's replies to that)

Well, anime anything is always bad. So I'll be staying away from that like a blue waffle. And... I'd very much prefer Halo and Metal Gear to be... umm Sacred and not have to be subject to being a joke. *Cough* BlooRayne! *Couch*

Now now.. BR the game was nice.. I enjoyed it. It was 'par' but fun. (Something about slicing up Nazi's was just fun).. but it takes a special kind of power to KILL a game franchise with a movie. :D

It won't.. the folks at Microsoft know it's their baby.. Peter Jackson of LoTR fame was trying to get it..but no one was happy with a script and it fell through. Everyone involved knows the script has to be right..

We could give Duke Nukem to Uwe Boll to make a movie out of. I don't think anyone could care. If DNF is any indication it's already set up.

I've only seen the ads for the game, but - are you sure he wasn't involved in the game-writing end of it?

Probably not, but Duke has never been known for its stellar story. "Aliens stole our chicks." That's it from what I can tell.

Nah, he'll probably still find some way to screw it up. He's Uwe Boll.

He doesn't need to be successful. Here is the secret of Uwe Boll. He produces movies that LOSE money. His investors are looking for a tax break and he gives them one with each loss. I wonder where he works from now since there was word that the Germans were looking to reform their tax code to eliminate that loophole he'd been using.

I suppose Kingdom Hearts 3 for the sake of on topic.

Honestly, is that really it? It gives people tax breaks? The man should be brought up on crimes against humanity.

I don't know about his last atrocities, but BloodRayne, House of the Dead, and Alone in the Dark were all 'tax write off' movies. They had to fail for his investors.

So why hasn't he produced 'Springtime for Hitler' yet?

You know, I could tolerate a man liking video games and making bad movies, but he's making bad movies based on video games because he thinks (and insures) that they won't succeed. Wrong, just wrong.

EDIT, Oniya: The Producers, that's a fantastic movie.

But if he tries to fail and succeeds then didn't he succeed?

Failing at failing is when you try so hard to make something bad that it ends up good.

Have YOU seen his movies? (Being trapped in a space on watch on the boat makes for 'captive' audience)

When your choices are the Platform camera (at night, in blackout conditions), Jaws, House of the Dead and you've seen JAWS 90 MILLION times during workups..

Yes, which is his goal.
