He seems like a nice guy.
Did he set up the petition himself?
I dislike this man. I find the only revenge I can get upon him is simply avoiding him and his films. Let's continue this trend.
Whoa...I don't what "ironic" bullshit you're talking about but a lot of people, including me, have been touting this guy's movies for ages. If you are not entertained by the sheer awfulness of his movies PLUS his brilliant feature-length commentaries on said movies, there is something wrong with you.
And there's no hipster dumbshit trick to liking it....it isn't "cool", it's just an appreciation for the sheer audacious stupidity of his movies.
Uwe Boll, the first professional to give a shit about an online petition.
only a million? dude, I've seen petitions that have reached way over a million signees about shit like bringing Kenan and Kel back on air or bringing a Taco Bell onto a specific college campus
I think The Only Genius In The Business kind of shot himself in the foot on this one
Is this in earnest? Is he really actually insane?

Sounds like Uwe "Toilet" Boll has finally snapped. The swearing took it from cranky to crazy.

Also, printed in Electronic Gaming Monthly's November 2006 edition of the section "The Rest of the Crap", written by critic Seanbaby, described Seanbaby's own involvement. Apparently Uwe was going to appear on G4's Attack of the Show! and promote this fight by sparring with one of the hosts. He claims that, "Again, he's [Uwe Boll] a matchmaking genius, because everyone on TV's 3-feet tall. If you were watching [AotS] during the time I co-hosted, you might have noticed that I could have leaned over and eaten host Kevin Pereira." A producer of the show then asked if Seanbaby would come and spar in the host's place for the event. Seanbaby says that he trains in Muay Thai and jujutsu, and that, "Boxing is to Fighting what Hungry Hungry Hippos is to fighting..." When Uwe heard of this, he wanted to know Seanbaby's age, height, weight and fighting experience since he "learned he wasn't fighting a midget". After receiving said information, Boll chose not to appear on the program.

He is a better filmmaker and person than Michael Bay. You have to give him that.
So you are saying he doesn't make shallow, vapid sexed up movies that rely on explosions and trendy camera tricks to sell themselves....
Okay, I'm going to have to agree with him here. I do find his movies superior to most of the stuff made these days.
When you have to direct a movie about a slutty vampire who kills nazis, and you are able to go on with your life, you gain 5 stars in my book.
this guy's the new ed wood. we have to appreciate his shitty-ness before it disappears forever!
This man is certainly a genius at marketing himself and his unbelievably terrible films. I admire him for that, but envy his freedom to do whatever the fuck he wants.
He really is repeating the formula used by successful bad filmmakers throughout time though. "Because both the critics and the box office hate me it means I'm an industry outsider and a man of vision realized long before its time." And who knows, maybe he's right. Perhaps there will be midnight showings of Boll movies for the rest of time. There will be month long Boll festivals on cable when summer starts. Hipsters will start wearing Uwe Boll shirts (I think that actually started happening last week). He's doing everything right to make that happen.
I don't know abou insane. I think this man's a comic genius. How he manged to say all that with a straight face is beyond me.
According to his wiki entry, Boll holds a doctorate in literature. Why can't he write a coherent, or original movie script?
