Postal director Uwe Boll is quitting the movie biz
In a shocking development, Boll says his films just aren't profitable.

(Movie Madness indeed.)

He is insane blaming his deficient profits on a lack of star power. In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale has Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Burt Reynolds, Ron Perlman and several other famous actors. It was a colossal bomb and (not coincidentally) is one of the most atrociously bad films I've ever seen.

I thought the whole idea behind Uwe Boll's 'career' was not actually being profitable. It was a corporate tax deduction scam.

Thank goodness for letting this talent vacuum quit his activities, though.

I thought it was some kind of money laundering for drug kingpins. Of course, for money laundering to work I think the shell businesses need to show a profit. I clearly didn't think my theory all the way through.
