Max Headroom, A Pasty John Connor, The Jerk From TITANIC And The T-X Go To Uwe Boll's DARFUR
Yep, it's an Uwe Boll two-pack today - see below for his apocalypse picture The Final Storm - because that's just how we do things here at ScreenAnarchy.  The German Doctor has two pictures debuting at the American Film Market this year, this much more serious-minded one being the second.  Here's the synopsis:

Since 2003 the crisis in Darfur has claimed the lives of over 300,000 civilians. 2,8 million Darfuri have been displaced within Sudan. The JANJAWEED MILITIY & SUDANESE GOVERNMENT FORCES have been responsible for the majority of the rape, torture and murder. 3,8 million people are dependent on international humanitarian aid. One half of these people are beyond the reach of such help.

In 2009 a group of international Journalists visited a village in the Darfur region under the protection of the AFRICAN UNION (AU).

They were never the same again ...

Between this and his Max Schmeling bio-pic Boll is clearly trying to move into more respectable film making territory and, honestly, this doesn't look horrible.  Not worth polishing up Oscar for, but it doesn't make me want to cry.  Billy Zane, Matt Frewer, Kristanna Loken and Edward Furlong star.

It's apparently a Billy Zane two-pack too! Honestly, when I read that Uwe Boll was making a film about Darfur I was prepared to be offended beyond belief, but it looks like he's actually taking the material seriously. I hope it's not too exhibitionistic.

Okay Okay,,, I'll give the Bollster some credit and say that these movies look okay. My only problem is that because of the trailer and synopsis for both Darfur and The Final Storm I now have no need to see the movies because I now know the plots.

I actually managed to get in and see Darfur. As much as I hate to admit it, Boll made a really good film. It has a few of his signature moments, but it was very emotional and well done. He seems to be taking filmmaking more seriously, or maybe he really feels for the subject. Either way, I recommend seeing the film. The Max trailer looks good - be curious to see this film - anyone know when it is coming out.
