Uwe Boll Making Movie About Nazi-Fighting, Overweight Swordswoman

image

The tenacious German director/producer is trying his hand at making a "fatsploitation" movie.

Whatever you might think of Uwe Boll's movies, it's impossible to deny that he is a grandmaster of shrugging off criticism. His status as the filmmaker that people - well, gamers more than anyone else - love to hate doesn't seem to bother him one bit, and he just keeps soldiering on, making movie after movie

As you might expect from a movie called "Blubberella," his latest work is unlikely to win any Oscars for its poignant dénouement, but that clearly was never the plan. Details for Blubberella, are in short supply, apart from the tagline "She will kick major ass - with her major ass."

Other than that, its just a case of what you can glean from the incredibly low-resolution poster. The titular character seems to be wielding swords, and after a few minutes squinting, I think I can make out some Nazis in the top left corner and prisoners a little further along. The plot would seem to be pretty self-explanatory from those details, but you never know, it might be an elaborate ruse and the action takes place as part of a daydream or something.

The movie stars Lindsay Hollister, Michael Paré, and Clint Howard, all actors who have done time in at least one of Boll's previous movies. Boll will also make an appearence, but it's not clear how big a role he has. Depending on your tolerance for jokes made at the expense of overweight people, this movie is either going to be so bad it's good again, or just incredibly bad. Really, the only upside here seems to be the fact that no videogames were harmed in the making of the movie.

I'm frightened. I really am.

.... this is a joke. Right? It has to be a joke.

Please... please tell me this is a joke... *huddles into a corner, sobbing*

Oh god. Someone stop him.

How great would it be if this was actually the Auschwitz movie Boll was planning to make?

Hahahahaha

Go Uwe Boll go!

Beat down some more haters in a boxing ring who are half your weight class then do it again!

Only movie he ever got right was "Postal" because it was so fantastically eccentric and over the top that he actually perfected its game to movie cross over.

But yeh outside of that he is the worst director ever born.
Still he funds his movies with Nazi Gold, so he doesnt have to worry about investors xD

I'm going to watch this on principle. There is no way I'm going to let something as silly as this pass by me!

alright, putting on the anti flames suit

*zzzzzzzzziiip*

I'm looking forward to this, ever since Uwe Boll's Rampage

he's not a bad director, he's just stupid.... beyond belief

Moviebob MUST review this when it comes out.

Escapist, make him do it.

The best part of this article is the ending line.

Thank the gods that it has nothing to do with a game series.

I can look at the bright side here. He isn't fucking up some video game movie now.

It should be federal law that he can't make movies though.

I agree with Onyx. We must make him review it! Also, you guys have to review that game about string.
This made me laugh, Uwe is truly bat shit.

Massive selfesteem killer if youre the main character!

I would respond to this, but I fear my higher brain functions have died just from looking at the poster.

Uwe Boll should be arrested for assisting a murder because I just killed someone. Honestly this may infact be the most awesome thing i've ever heard of, if only it did'nt have the name Uwe Boll on it.

Wow, i hope some overweight members of the French Resistance or SOE or whatever sue him for defamation.
Seriously, that would be the most interesting court-case of the decade.

you know, the character in the poster reminds me of an overweight buffy.

Onyx Oblivion:

Escapist, make him do it.

That would be nice. I'm still annoyed he didn't review "Vampires Suck"

*claps slowly*

Bravo, Uwe Boll...Bravo...

Uwe Boll is the ultimate troll.

The kind of film director i yearn to be...

I will say this. In defense of everyone from Clint Howard to Sir Ben Kingsley, a paycheck is a paycheck. Hell, knowing how much he hates games, I'd still be in one of them if he paid.

brillant concept

JUMBO PALACE:
How great would it be if this was actually the Auschwitz movie Boll was planning to make?

then wouldn't the main character have to kill hitler at some point?
also will there be zombies how about NAZI ZOMBIES the greatest evil known to man

Onyx Oblivion:
Moviebob MUST review this when it comes out.

Escapist, make him do it.

so we are going to torture MovieBob now?
then he must review the first movie Justin Bieber gets in

JUMBO PALACE:
How great would it be if this was actually the Auschwitz movie Boll was planning to make?

That's what I was thinking O_o he was a Nazi...

Uhh. Yeah. She's overweight? No. I'm overweight. She's obese. That's about 50 pounds of difference, in severe cases like this 100.

"Fatsploitation?"
I have to see this; it could be the best bad movie since The Room!

Oh goddamnit. Fuck you Uwe Boll, FUCK YOU.

I'm not even going to watch it out of interest, as Uwe Boll has this amazing ability to make even the most retardedly hilarious concepts into painfully boring movies. Case in point, Bloodrayne.

If I ever find it on DVD, I'll watch it.

OH GOD! Please say this is the working title for the new BloodRayne film he's making, it would so make my day :D

Don't worry, spoony will do certainly put himself through it.

I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.

Hmmm, well in seeing this I am somehow reminded of "Beverly Hills Ninja" which was at least pretty funny to me.

Let's be honest, I'm fat, but I don't get all uptight about humor made about fat people. I grew up with guys like John Candy and Chris Farley and their somewhat self-depreciating style of humor... Blubberella seems like the kind of movie they would have made, albiet in this case it's a female lead.

Given the fact that I do not recognize the lady playing the lead, I can't say anything for how she might carry the kind of movie this might be. If it was an action-comedy starring Chris, John, or that Sammo Hung guy that did "Martial Law" I'd probably be saying that this movie was going to rock.... right now it's just "meh" due to the unknown playing the role, and the director.

Cyan.:
Uwe Boll is the ultimate troll.

The kind of film director i yearn to be...

I beg to differ.


THE TRUE ULTIMATE TROLL!

Kojima also has a burning hatred for Bowl.

But I still want to see the movie regardless.

Oh yeah, I have one niggling question. Who the FUCK keeps blowing all this money on such a ball-crushingly bad director!?!??
It's kind of understandable for a producer to hand out cheques to people like M. Night Shayamalamadingdong, since he has had at least two or three great movies, but Uwe Boll? I bet you can't name a single actually decent film by him. EVER.

oh Uwe you wacky German what will you think of next?

Oh, ha-ha, April's Fools, you got me.

Wait, what do you mean it's October? Maybe... maybe it's for Halloween? To scare us...?
It couldn't possibly be real... could it?

Apparently, Rampage was pretty decent, but I haven't seen it, so I couldn't tell you. As for the money-making bit, he takes advantage of loopholes in German law to make a profit on his films, regardless of how hard they bomb, or so I'm told (I'm not familiar with the specifics).

As for this film, the poster alone looks hysterical. I may have to purchase this exclusively on principle.
