Movies based upon video games have a fairly wretched reputation, and many people place the blame on just one person: Uwe Boll. His cinematic adaptations of House of the Dead, BloodRayne, Alone in the Dark, and Far Cry are all universally reviled, though the one movie that is often cited as being absolute garbage is Postal.
Today might either be the most appropriate or inappropriate day, given that the nation is reflecting upon the events of September 11, 2001. The opening sequence of Postal depicts the hijacking of one of the planes that would be driven into World Trade Center, but in “comedic” fashion.
Well, guess what: Boll wants to do sequel, but it’ll only happen if you lend a hand. And you do want to give him your support, don’t you?
Boll has turned to, what else, Kickstarter to make his dream happen. Here we have a recent video for his campaign, in which he admits that he’s still a ways away from reaching his goal, hence the decision to explain a bit about the plot, to help generate interest:
Well, now that we all know that the movie will feature Heidi Klum getting raped, it will surely make that desired amount, right?
One constant target in his campaign is Scientologists, which is a popular target among entertainers. But unlike, say, South Park, which makes genuinely funny jokes, Boll just comes off angry and bitter for whatever reason.
He also repeatedly states that he will speak the truth about 9/11, and it’s hard to tell if he’s joking or if he intends to dig deep into politics and conspiracy theories with his proposed movie.
Here’s another video in which Boll states that Postal 2 is essentially a reaction to what has happened to Edward Snowden, and that he’s the only thing that can help society from become completely Orwellian:
At 46 days left to go (which is quite the stretch of time, as far as Kickstarters go), and over $45,000 of the desired $500,000 accounted for, Postal 2 does stand at having a decent chance of getting green lit.
