Uwe Boll Trashes Terrence Malick And The Tree Of Life

Uwe Boll has been known to be one of the worst directors in Hollywood. He has yet to make a single movie that critics or people in general like. The reason for that is because the guy is a talentless piece of shit. I’ve tried sitting through a few of his films and I honestly couldn’t. I had to stop them immediately and proceed to break the discs into a million pieces (or return them to Netflix/Blockbuster).

This really doesn’t come as a surprise that he bashes a great film maker and a great film. Boll is just trying to get his 5 minutes of fame. His films won’t get him any publicity and I think he realizes that. It’s just sad that he has to trash another film maker just to try and come off as a rebel or something. It really makes him look like an even bigger tool and in no way do I ever feel like watching another one of his films after reading this bit of news.

In an interview with Screen Junkies Boll had this to say about The Tree of Life:

I totally hated that movie because I feel as a filmmaker that besides the fact that Terrence Malick did some great visuals on some movies, also on The New World, like the opening of that movie was really good but then he completely lost it. I think Tree of Life is a piece of shit. Totally, and I think Sean Penn is ridiculous in it, like walking around in the elevator. It’s nothing. This is the thing. It’s so overrated because it’s Terrence Malick. Same as Lars von Trier’s movies. I like Breaking the Waves. After that was all crap. The thing is he gets all the Hollywood stars, “Oh, I want to work with him” and they don’t know what kind of retard he is. I think the same with Terrence Malick. I think Terrence Malick is one of the overrated directors of all time.

And that right there proves that The Tree of Life needs to be seen instantly. If an idiot film maker like Uwe Boll doesn’t like it then that must mean that there is something good in it! I hope he trashes all of the Oscar nominated films this year as it will just confirm that they are good films. Anything Boll seems to hate ends up being good!

I’d like to close this out by saying fuck you Uwe Boll. Terrence Malick can make a better 5 min intro of a film then you can in an entire film career. I’d rather watch the 15 minute end credits for The Thin Red Line than Rampage. You’re a talentless hack that isn’t going anywhere but down.

Oh and come talk to me when all of your films combined gross equals The Adjustment Bureau‘s gross.

  • Ha, I don’t know much about this guy, but I watched a Nostalgia critic review, and he reviewed one of his movies, and he said he was known in hollywood as an awful director, and is he the guy that challenges people to a fight for not liking his movie or something? and supposedly makes shit movies as a tax right off or something or is that someone else.

      Yeah, he once challenged Michael Bay to a fist fight…haha.

  • Lord Randall Tummington

    Well, at least he’s candid.

  • Sean Canfield

    He’s actually a brilliant genius. He purposely makes trash films because he enjoys it. He makes no bones about what he does, either. I do agree with him about Lars Von Trier, he’s a terrible moron that everyone thinks is a fucking genius for some reason.

    I like Badlands and Days of Heaven, but since then I’ve never seen any of Terry Mallick’s films. I do tend to agree with Boll that he fancies himself pretty important and smart, and I don’t know if that much is really true.

    However, I want to see Tree of Life for myself, now to see if I agree with him.

      I give Boll credit for being able to make a living off of trashy films, but he honestly is a fucking troll. If he wants to make shitty movies then that is his deal, but just because he needs to be in the spotlight doesn’t make it right to trash other film makers.

      He does this about every other year just so he becomes relevant again.

      I’ve seen every Malick film minus Badlands and the only one I didn’t love was Days of Heaven. Other than that, I’d say he always makes solid 9 or 10’s out of 10’s.

      Von Trier is a little above my head, I’ve only seen Anti-Christ and I still can’t get a grip on that one.

      • Sean Canfield

        Exactly, and that’s what makes him a genius. This is America, where anyone can trash anyone. The fact that people give him credence to do so is what lets him know he can do it successfully. lol

          Yeah, you’re right haha, it’s just annoying from time to time. THAT OL’ BOLL!

  • What a fucking dick

  • Sean Canfield

    Not to mention he makes more films than just about anyone but Takashi Miike.

  • Even though Boll is a complete ass and a talentless filmmaker, I don’t think that automatically disqualifies what he says. For the record, he makes some legetimate criticisms (albiet tactlessly) that many others have alreadymade about the film, and I actually agree with many of them. Just though I’d throw that out there.
