News today

Happy Friday! Let's celebrate the end of the week with the news that Uwe Boll ("the worst director alive", (c) The Village Voice) has taken to Kickstarter for his new film, Postal 2.

The fabulously larger-than-life director - the man behind video game-to-film transplant House of the Dead and the under-rated Blubberella ("An action comedy centered on an overweight woman whose footsteps cause explosions" - IMDb) - has taken to crowd-funding in his typically brash style. Postal 2 will have a bodycount that's "higher as Hiroshima and Dancing with the Stars combined". And where will donors money go? "The money goes all for cocaine for the stars down the nose." Godspeed Uwe! If Spike Lee can do it, why can't you?

Seen through the eyes of 10-year-old Seth Dove (Jeremy Cooper), the film is populated by the damaged denizens of a small town in rural Idaho. As it opens, Seth's family is on the brink of collapse, his mother slipping into religious insanity, his father deeply depressed by some dark secret. His elder brother, Cameron, played by a young Viggo Mortensen, has returned from military service traumatised and suffering from a mysterious physical affliction. Cameron »
