What, the theatrical version wasn’t insult enough, we have to have an even longer one foisted on us?
I think Wal-Mart’s selling that in a combo pack with American Carol.
Who keeps approving Uwe Boll to do videogame adaptations (this one is as much an adaptation than LXG was of the “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” comic), and who keeps funding him?
I work with someone who loved this movie and talked about it incessantly for a while. Yikes. What is Dave Foley doing in it?
I dunno who keeps finding Uwe, I’ve been asking for his job for years but they rather stick with his garbage directing skills, with that said I rented ” Return of the King : A dungeon siege story”, I had to know how bad it was.
What is Dave Foley doing in it?
For one, walking around stark naked.
I dunno how much of this is real or urban legend, but Uwe Boll keeps getting work because of German tax laws regarding film-making: foreign investors apparently make MORE money if the movie’s a stinker than a reasonably well-made movie that gets between $40-80 million in the theaters.
Boll has apparently forced German to change this law so no one else can do the kind of damage he’s done to cinema.
