Director Says "Other Video Game Movie Directors Make Crappy Movies, Unlike My Crappy Ones"
Paul W.S. Anderson, writer, producer and director of the "classic" video game movies "Aliens Vs. Predator", "Mortal Kombat", and the "Resident Evil" franchise, criticized other directors of video game adaptations recently. "A lot of these people don't respect the material they're ripping off. I, however, am true to the video games spirit, in that I change crucial elements, but in an artistic way."
Mr. Anderson, further explains that "the narrative of the video game doesn't always translate easily to the big screen, so I find it's easier to do away with it entirely. And that's what makes my crap special..."
Uwe Boll, director of video game adaptations of "Postal", "Alone In The Dark", "Far Cry", "Bloodrayne", and "House of the Dead" all of which flopped at the box office, disputed Mr. Anderson's claims in a press release. Mr Boll was quoted as saying, "Wen das fickt, ist er machend Spaß?" (translation: Who the f**k is he kidding?) End quote.
