‘Rampage’ Director Goes on Rampage After Failed Kickstarter (Watch NSFW Video)

'Rampage' Director Goes on Rampage After Failed Kickstarter (Watch NSFW Video)

He’s directed movies such as “BloodRayne,” “Alone in the Dark,” “Postal” and “Far Cry,” but at this point, German director Uwe Boll will be best known for his latest productions: YouTube videos in which he slams Hollywood and freaks out about his failed crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for “Rampage 3,” the third in the “Rampage” series.

With three days left to go, Boll’s campaign has raised just over $26,000 of its $55,794 goal.

Frustrated with the tepid response, the filmmaker told movie fans to “fuck yourselves.” He also lashed out at Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey, Jr. who, he said, are “laughing” at low-income families who shell out money to see “Marvels Avengers bullshit dirt.”

This campaign is Boll’s third failed attempt to reach his target goal for the film on a crowdfunding site.

Referring to Kickstarter, he said, “What retarded amateur idiots collecting money on that website. For me, crowdfunding is absolutely dead.” But don’t worry about Boll. He said he’s got “enough money to play golf until I’m dead.”

Ironically, his rant may help drive potential backers to his campaign, but regardless, it’s unlikely he’ll reach his goal at this point.

Thank you. Please go away now. You have no talent, no one wants to see another of your shit movies.

The funny thing is.. he’s got a point. !! He’s a horrible filmmaker but a good businessman, and he’s ranting against the hypocrisy of perpetuating the Hwood dream at everyone’s own expense except the agents and superstars. TO his credit, even though he’s played this game in his own smaller way, he does strive for something more — not ‘good films’ necessarily, but films that make a profit for all involved. I think his KS campaigns failed because no one trusts his sincerity, or sees the need to support him because he’s doing fine by himself. Certainly his movies don’t warrant support, so when the artist doesn’t either. it’s a bitter pill to swallow. So I say hats off to his rant!! But his bitterness about his KS is misplaced.

Looks like he also had an even less popular Indiegogo Campaign run by his Canadian Wife Natalia – indiegogo .. /projects/rampage-3-no-mercy

Oh come on, everyone, you’re being trolled so hard. Uwe Boll is just playing up to his character, I had no idea Uwe Boll even tried a kickstarter campaign until all these "Boll Meltdown" articles started popping up.

So you can meet models in Cannes?

How he ever got money in the first place to make those crap fests is a mystery, or proof there a plenty of ignorant people who didn’t know better. Now they do, lol.

That second video he did talking about celebrities and the movie business is spit on and real talk. If you don’t believe it your the people that he is talking about. Dumb idiots living fake lives blinded by what the media tells you. You have realize your being brainwashed when you spend your entire life being brainwashed

Exactly. If this idiot has enough money to play golf forever, then why is he asking anyone for money? Make your own goddamn movie, you selfish prick. I’m sick of self-entitled idiots.

Martin

If all it took to get Uwe Boll to stop making movies was some failed crowdfunding campaigns, why didn’t anyone suggest it 10 years ago?

SC

If he’s got enough money for all that golf, why doesn’t he fund his own goddamn movie then?!

I hope UWe Boll walks away from filmmaking forever. He’s a talentless hack who makes terrible films, from crappy scripts, about worthless subjects. He is literally the worst director on Earth, and this is in a world in which Tommy Wiseau and Ed Wood films exist. F_ck Uwe Boll. Good-bye, and good riddance. Go play golf, you bald f_ck.
