Finish Uwe Boll Off - One Million Signatures Required!

We haven't mentioned Uwe Boll or his movies much on FS.net, and for good reason. Uwe is that German director who has made some of the worst video game movies ever, including House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, Postal, and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. Everyone knows he's a hack, but somehow, he still lives on, making new movies almost every year. However, now is the time where we can, as a collective group, bring down Uwe Boll once and for all. He's stated outright that if this online petition gets one million signatures, he'll stop making movies.
So the story goes that this petition was created to stop Uwe Boll from making more movies and it's currently up to around 30,000 signatures. The guys over at FEARnet recently interviewed Boll and mentioned the petition. At the time it only had 18,000 signatures, and he said that "18,000 is not enough to convince me." So of course the next question was "how many would it take?" Uwe's answer: "One million. Now we have a new goal." Yes we do! Only 970,000 more to go!
There we have it. Now it's our mission (and SlashFilm's and Cinematical's) to stop this man from disgracing cinema once and for all. Take a stand and sign the petition now! There's no questioning - this needs to be done right away. Spread the word, get all of your friends to sign, get everyone you know to join in the fight to stop Uwe Boll! Apparently Tunnel Rats, Far Cry, Zombie Massacre, and BloodRayne 3 are already in production, so we can't stop those, but we can stop everything after that! Sign it now!
