I heard the DS movie was the least horrible of Uwe Boll's portfolio.

Postal & Far Cry are way better. DS movie has some cool fight scenes and Claire Forlani, but those are about the only redeeming qualities.

 

Still, the movie's complete lack of focus & plot is remarkable close to the actual DS game. The DS game seemed to make up the plot at the spot as one trounched baddies... "oh yeah, you just killed a dragon, now go further east for more answers"... "so after killing the evil Seck Necromancer, the heroes decided to go to the Temple of Doom to investigate", etc.

He did a Far Cry film too? That's news to me.

The problem is that everybody nowadays compares fantasy flicks with Lord of the Rings. Boll's flick is not worse than anything that came out in the 80s. It's a bit like Krull.

 

I loved Matthew Lillard's performance in that flick. He is a true comedy genius.

You like hentai visual novels. Your argument is invalid. :)

Krull is awesome - particularly the optical effect used on The Beast that for years made pan-and-scan versions of the film nearly incomprehensible (also has an early appearance by Liam Neeson).

 

However the 80s were king for wild low-budget fantasy films, ranging from the good (Hawk the Slayer) to the hilarious (The Barbarians) the weird (Yor Hunter from the Future) and the cheesy (Ator the Fighting Eagle)

Hawk The Slayer was good when I was fourteen, but I saw it again recently and realised that it was so-bad-it's-really-bad.

 

Except the silly string spell effect by the wizard.

Wait what?

 

80's Movies have at least charm or deliever good things. Boll movies are deliberatry made to insult people. Not to mention 80's scripts were were still better than AITD or Tunnel Rats.

 

Also both FC and Postal are horrible. Especially Postal. While the original games still poked fun in some morbid way, the movie just did stupid things and made it as insulting as possible.

 

 

And the entire time you know this guy just does it for the money in his scheme. At least Ed Wood movies were still filled with love from Ed Wood. He liked making the movies and it showed. As utterly bad as they were.

 

 

Boll on the other hand just trolls and is as arrogant as possible a person can be.

 

 

 

 

So, no Uwe sucks.

fantasy movies of the 80s include:

 

dragonslayer

conan the barbarian

ladyhawke

princess bride

dark crystal

 

the star wars films is arguably fantasy, so you might throw a couple of 'em into the mix as well.

 

HA! Good Fun!

 

ps we forgot time bandits... and if you wanna get technical, throw in witches of eastwick and raiders of the lost ark

alone in the dark is by far his most funny movie imo

 

i was laughing almost non-stop throughout

 

dungeon siege was just boring


Killing is kind of like playin' a basketball game. I am there. and the other player is there. and it's just the two of us. and I put the other player's body in my van. and I am the winner. - Nice Pete.

Alone in the Dark was just...just...I'm not sure what it was but it was about as bad as anything I've ever seen (inexplicable jumps in time, incoherent plot, characters that made no sense).

 

It made House of the Dead seem awesome in comparison.

my friends and i have on occasion watched uweboll marathons (copious alcohol is a requirement)

 

alone in the dark is like this generations Plan 9, I highly recommend it as a "comedy", second of course, to The Room (which is a masterwork in awfulawesome)

 

WARNING: trying to watch a boll movie, or The Room, as an actual film and not a joke is about as much fun as stabbing yourself in the eye
