    I've got an easier solution...don't buy his products. Vote with your wallets...it's the only vote that counts.

    Except that didn't work as every film he has ever made has lost money, but he still got payed by screwing with the German tax laws. Though that rule has been changed now which is why he can't do any more big budget films anyway.

    heh, anyone who will box Lowtax simply wins.

    I'm not going to sign, I enjoy awful movies to much, they're perfect for caffeine fueled LANs.

    I am not going to... His movies are really funny if you watch them with some geek friends while drinking a few beer.




    On the other hand... he's wasting my tax money... now where can I sign up again?

    While his movies are funny because they're so bad it makes people think video games are crap like his movies and hes getting paid to put out garbage, so I htink in the end I'd much rather have him stop.

    52,721. I'm guessing he'll laugh it off even if it does hit 1 million. Still worth trying, though.

    i think this is a bit stupid tbh. I hate his movies but why the hell shouldnt he have the right to make them??? Just dont watch the crap. Its like saying hey i was on holiday in Spain and i hated it lets start a petition to forbid the exsistance of spain as a country...... Come on this is just ridiculous.

    I think that its because he is ruining the credibility of an already shakey venture. Most video game movies suck, regardless of who has made them, and so production companies and producers become more and more hesitant to produce movies based on games. So I figure alot of people assume that if Uwe is gone, someone might be able to step up and make a serious movie from a game and give it one last chance at not sucking. (Resident Evil, Doom, Mortal Combat: Annihilation, Alone in The Dark, Aliens Versus Predator, BloodRayne, Street Fighter, Double Dragons........ I'm sure there are more.) In fact the only decent game-to-movie production I can think of is Silent Hill. (I also like the first Mortal Kombat, but that's just me.)

    Either that or this just feels empowering.

    ---

    P.S. -- All that being said, Wolverine, you're absolutely right. Don't like it, don't use it. In fact that can be applied to damn near any argument from violent video games to someone's favorite book to Mac-vs-Windows.

    58928 - I feel cleansed now that I have purged my demons!

    My personal favourite review ever of a UB film (direct quote here), "Shite, shite, shite, shite, SHITE!!!!!

    I think that gets the point across, don't you?
