Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

I would say that it was in really bad taste that on today of all days, they decide to release a clip from a movie that shows a plane flying into a building.

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

icant be sure it was released today, but it isnt good timing for sure.

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

It wasn't released today, but no doubt someone started throwing links around just to be a jackass. I used to have a hi-res quicktime version of that scene, that I received maybe 6 months or so ago.

Whether you approve of it or not, I was surprised by the quality of the visuals and the FX, which are pretty damn convincing. And, truth be told - I'm really looking forward to this. Good things have been said about it.

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

i can confirm my source is not a jack ass smile

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

Wasn't saying they were cool

It's popped up on a bunch of sites today, and shown up in my inbox 3 times, so someone's a jackass.

Besides, is it wrong that on the eve of the new Osama tape last week, the thought of sending a couple of the Postal Osama clips to the local news to see if they'd be stupid enough to bite crossed my mind?

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

If I'm calling anyone a jackass in this thread, it would be Uwe Boll.

Other than that, I'm just saying that the timing was in poor taste.  And that's not Meh's or his sources' fault, they're just giving out what was given to them.

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

Uwe Boll is a complete jackass in my book 9/11 is a sad day for all Americans. That said, I will hav nothing to do with any film by Boll ever again even if it was a good ole porno of hot naked chicks cause he would even make a porn film look shitty to me.:lol:

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

I know its wrong and offensive, but I couldn't stop laughing at the scene.  I do respect those who died on September 11, but I found the scene extremely funny.

I find it hard to believe that people are up in arms over POSTAL yet few seem to remember that SOUTH PARK has been around for nearly a decade and has been more offensive on so many levels than Boll's film.  How many people has it offended over the years? 

And if someone says 'well, the South Park guys are doing it in satire so it doesn't count'...well, thats bullcrap as POSTAL is a satire also.

I'm personally looking forward to this.

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

so i finally watched the scene just now and i hate to say it but it made me laugh

Re: Uwe Boll's Postal First 3 Minutes

The clip is in poor taste but just as some will be offended by the plane crashing into the building, there will be an equal amount offended by the terrorists  dialogue.

  That being said, I have to say (and I thought the day would never come...) that it may be the best scene Uwe Boll has ever filmed.  As a matter of fact, the scene and the FX were so well framed that it was probably done by the second unit.  He most likely had nothing to do with it.

Cuz Uwe Boll sucks IMO.

I would say the huge difference between South Park being offensive and Uwe Boll being offensive is that South Park is actually smart and creative compared to Uwe Boll's mindless dribble.  Matt Stone and Trey Parker, no matter how offensive, have a point at the end of each episode and whether you agree with it or not, you cannot deny the intelligent way that they get to it.

I could be wrong, but this movie doesn't seem like it either has a point or is very intelligent at all.  There is nothing wrong with this, it just doesn't fit my sense of humor very well, nor do I believe that this subject matter (or scene) is the best for that type of humor.

I can only base off my views of POSTAL thus far from reviews/previews of text and clips and most people have had the notion of POSTAL being a live action South Park on acid that there is some funny satire all the offense and humor.  So, for that reason as well as it looks damn funny I'm defending it.

But I do agree that Stone and Parker do a great job at social satire via the show.  And I am a South Park fan and my humor is fairly dark and twisted...and I say again that though I laugh at the scene...I still respect those who died.  I think probably a more offensive film is PEARL HARBOR as it has nothing to do with the battle spare for that like 15-20 min attack, even then it was Hollywood action crap.

Anyway, I think a film like POSTAL is something that is like many films that are far out there, its merits and pitfalls come with the viewer.
