Although I'm in no way an expert on all things Uwe Boll, I can't help but get a kick out of this guy and the way he goes after the media. Remember how, last year, he challenged a bunch of journalists to a boxing match in order to prove that ... his films don't suck? I have no idea -- either the guy is completely insane, or he's a marketing genius. I mean, in the last year you'll find more Uwe Boll-related posts on Cinematical than stuff about A-listers like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Tom Cruise. Our own Scott Weinberg could talkBollalldaylong. Me? I'll just get straight to the facts.

Apparently, Wired Magazine attended the premiere for Boll's latest flick Postal and, like any magazine would do, they wrote a piece on the premiere and the film, but did so in a very entertaining way. Here's an excerpt, in which author Chris Kohler describes the film's story as being about "a guy shooting a bunch of people in order to stop Al Qaeda and a religious cult led by Dave Foley from unleashing on the world a batch of avian bird flu hidden in a shipment of penis-shaped children's toys voiced by Verne Troyer (pull the string and it says 'only my father and my priest can touch me there!')" Um, wow. I don't even know how to respond to that. Luckily, I don't have to -- because Boll (in all his maniacal glory) went after Wired with a string of poorly-written emails, attacking the mag and Kohler for writing what they did.

Since I provided you with an excerpt from Kohler's piece, it's only right I do the same for Boll's first email. Here's a sample: "your review shows me only that you dont understand anything about movies and that you are a untalented wanna bee filmmaker with no balls and no understanding what POSTAL is. you dont see courage because you are nothing. and no go to your mum and fu*k her ...because she cooks for you now since 30 years ..so she deserves it." Yup. That's Boll for ya. And if you think he's lost it, my spell-check just looked at me as if I was completely out of my fu*king mind. Feel free to head on over to Wired to read the rest of this exchange, which has apparently ended with Boll agreeing to do an interview with them. They've promised the interview for later in the week, so stay tuned ...
