Are we done hating director Uwe Boll yet? Despite a spat of truly awful genre fare back in the early 2000s, the notorious German filmmaker has been on quite a role lately, delivering some of the best movies of his career. He's finally making what he really wants to make, and some of those films, like Rampage and Assault on Wall Street are truly inspired personal works that highlight his strengths as a visionary and storyteller. He has a distinct voice, and when the material fits, he's quite adept at bringing a powerful message to the screen.

A sequel to Blubberella once seemed like a definite thing, but no one is really asking for it. It will forever be a one-off cult movie buried on Netflix, and despite it continuing to grow a steady audience, that strong fanbase seems so ashamed that they love the movie, they're afraid to ask for a follow-up.
