Uwe Boll: The Petition

Uwe Boll is one of the worst movie makers ever. Apparently he's reenacting "The Producers" in reality. By making horrible, horrible movies that cause people to gouge out their eyes and burn movie theaters to cleanse the evil from the site he creates some sort of tax shelter for investors. But he does this by taking popular video games and adapting them for film.

He has:
3 BloodRayne movies (the third to be released in 2009)
2 Alone in the Dark movies (the second due in 2009)
A Far Cry movie due this year
A House of the Dead movie
A Dungeon Siege movie
Sabotage 1943(2009)
Zombie Massacre(2010)

And several cinematographic abortions that you've never heard of because they weren't based on games.

Uwe has the ability to take Oscar quality actors and a great premise and movies that will act as an anchor on the actors careers for the rest of their lives. But someone started a petition asking him to stop. Uwe has agreed that if it gets 1 million signatures he'll stop making movies. Of course, there's bound to be a catch. He may switch to TV or something.

I've heard about this petition in many places but I never saw a link to it until today. So I've signed it and am doing my part to help it propagate.
