Did you know writer/director Uwe Boll directed around 30 movies in his careerc I didn't, and of those, the number of them I've seen I can count on one hand: 2007's In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and 2009's Rampage. I didn't even know he made a sequel to the latter, let alone had not one but two different crowdfunding efforts to complete his violent trilogy with Rampage 3: No Mercy. Turns out I wasn't alone. Boll's most recent crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter is still several thousands dollars away from his goal with only three days left (the Indigogo one before that fell $93,675 short of its $100,000 goal) and he's not very happy about it. Not in the slightest, and he's not afraid to call people out for not supporting his movie in two YouTube videos released yesterday. He cusses out both fans who didn't support this »

He's directed movies such as "BloodRayne," "Alone in the Dark," "Postal" and "Far Cry," but at this point, German director Uwe Boll will be best known for his latest productions: YouTube videos in which he slams Hollywood and freaks out about his failed crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for "Rampage 3," the third in the "Rampage" series.

Frustrated with the tepid response, the filmmaker told movie fans to "fuck yourselves." He also lashed out at Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey, Jr. who, he said, are "laughing" at low-income families who shell out money to see "Marvels Avengers bullshit dirt." This campaign is Boll's third failed attempt to reach his target goal for the. »

Uwe Boll is very done with crowdsourcing to help fund his movies. In 2013, the Alone In The Dark and Bloodrayne director tried to get a sequel to Postal made through Kickstarter, but it was canceled the same year, and recently he's been trying to raise funds for Rampage 3. The project was originally being funded through Indiegogo, however he moved it to Kickstarter after not being able to build interest for... Read More »

Uwe Boll is totally over it. The German director, a.k.a. The King of Trash, posted a brief but jaw-dropping tirade on YouTube over the weekend — well, multiple tirades — in which he bashes everything from Kickstarter to Marvel to Harry Potter. It’s blunt. It’s harsh. It’s extremely entertaining. Take a look. This comes after Boll, who directed movies like the two Rampage films and Postal, failed multiple times to gain funding for Rampage 3 on crowdfunding sites. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, his run on Indiegogo raised a little more than $5,000 of his $80,000 goal, while his latest Kickstarter campaign only reached approximately $25,000. With only three days left in the campaign, Boll decided to vent his frustrations online. In a phrase that sums up the angst in the entire video, Boll says how he wants to make Rampage 3 because it& »
German director Uwe Boll has posted an extraordinary anti-Hollywood rant on YouTube after failing to gain funding for his new film.
He reacted angrily to the news that his crowd-sourcing campaign for Rampage 3 had been unsuccessful, and ranted against movie goers, Marvel fans, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and more in an almost five-minute video .
He said: "It's so pissing me off how fake that business is, but also how the young people of today falling in the f**king trap, because they're all stupid. Like wake the f**k up!
"Iron Man is not existing. Avengers are not existing. Because they are all f**king retarded idiots.
"And Robert Downey Jr. and all them people are idiots. Not idiots, they just grab the money. And they're laughing their asses off that the people pay money to that stupid, absurd s**t that they are shooting, like Captain America and all that completely crap. »
With the likes of In the Name of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and Postal under his belt, you would never call Uwe Boll one of cinema’s greatest directors. But there is one person out there who thinks he deserves that title: Uwe Boll himself. A bit of context. Boll is currently wrapping up his Kickstarter campaign for Rampage 3: No Mercy, the second sequel to his 2009 mass murderer thriller (incidentally, one of his only movies get positive reviews). With three days to go, it’s not looking good with the $50,000 goal still a long way from being reached, and he is not happy. Taking to Youtube, he has a message for us all: “Fuck yourself”. And that’s not all. Over the course of two expletive filled videos, he goes on a rant targeting not only Kickstarter but also Hollywood, George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, as well as the cinema going public. »

Director Uwe Boll went on an expletive-laden rant on Sunday after his new film struggled to reach its crowdfunding goal on Kickstarter.
“Basically my message is ‘f–k yourself’,” the German filmmaker told movie fans. Boll also ridiculed the staff at Kickstarter, who he said manipulated him into thinking his new movie, “Rampage 3: No Mercy,” could raise $55,000 in a month.
The sequel to “Rampage,” his 2009 film, has only raised $24,500 with three days left. It’s the third failed attempt to reach the target goal after efforts on similar sites like Indiegogo.
“What retarded amateur idiots collecting money on that website,” he said of Kickstarter. “For me crowd funding is absolutely dead.”
“I have enough money to play golf until I’m dead, »
