10 Directors Who Have Never Made A Good Movie

Uwe Boll

Losing streak: German Fried Movie (1991), Barschel – Mord in Genf? (1993), Amoklauf (1994), Das Erste Semester (1997), Sanctimony (2000), Blackwoods (2002), Heart of America (2002), House of the Dead (2003), Alone in the Dark (2005), Bloodrayne (2005), In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2006), Bloodrayne 2: Deliverance (2007), Postal (2007), Seed (2007), 1968 Tunnel Rats (2008), Alone in the Dark II (2008), Far Cry (2008), Stoic (2009), Rampage (2009), Darfur (2009), Final Storm (2010), Max Schmeling (2010), Bloodrayne: The Third Reich (2010), Auschwitz (2011), Blubberella (2011), In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds (2011)

A list of this nature wouldn’t be complete without the king of ineptitude himself, German schlockmeister Uwe Boll. Notorious for making laughably bad cinema, Boll is walking, talking punch line in the genre community, and, bless his heart, he typically relishes the contempt. In 2006, in fact, he staged a boxing event dubbed "Raging Boll," in which he beat the snot out of several of his harshest critics.

That sideshow notwithstanding, though, Boll’s films truly are as hackneyed as motion pictures get. Hammy acting, zero tension, and low-rent special effects are the least of his problems; Boll is actually too ambitious for his own good. In House of the Dead, for instance, unnecessary Matrix-esque, bullet-time tinkering leaves already messy scenes completely insufferable.

Let’s stop right there, though—we’ve seen Boll’s skills with boxing gloves.
