Raging Boll

Just when you think you've heard it all...

Apparently there is a German man by the name of Uwe Boll who takes old video games and turns them into feature films, and it would seem that his work is exceedingly poor. His reviews online rival George W. Bush's reviews on Daily Kos, Wired calling him "quite possibly the worst filmmaker in the world," noting that "[h]is movies are haphazardly scripted, sloppily edited, badly acted and, most crucially, brutally received," while the webmaster of Something Awful penned: "Boll is destroying the childhoods and fond gaming memories of internet nerds across the country with each and every cinematic bastardization he produces."

He that has an ear to hear, let him hear lest the ringside bell toll for thee.
