Uwe Boll's 'Postal' Playing In Three Canadian Theatres

Even though Uwe Boll's video game based movies are almost universally panned I sometimes can't help but feel bad for the guy. I mean, his newest movie - Postal - based off the PC game of the same name, was supposed to open this past weekend in over 1,000 theaters in North America. Instead, within the last month all but 21 theatres pulled the plug on the movie. Three of these theatres just happen to be in Canada.

Uwe Boll, speaking on the Postal website, had these disparaging remarks to say to his critics:

"...you want only movies like JUMPER , SPEED RACER , WHAT HAPPENDS IN VEGAS ...? then keep going and your dreams will be fullfilled. POSTAL makes some very important points ..but you dont wanna see that .... : that Bush used the SEPTEMBER 11 to start a war against a country what had nothing to do with Bin
Laden etc.... but this all doesnt matter because you are all busy to THINK that INDIANA JONES or NARNIA are important movies ... but in real they are empty shells of an industry what wants to make money and what wants to keep you looking "escape movies" with nothing in it."
Sounds like Uwe Boll's gone a little postal himself if you ask me!

Anyhow, in case you're interested in checking out his latest video game movie, you can see it at one of the following theatres in Canada:

Rainbow Market Square
80 Front St. E. (Market Square at Jarvis St.)
Toronto, ON

AMC Forum 22
2313 Ste-Catherine Ouest
Montréal, QC

Empire Granville 7
855 Granville St.
Vancouver, BC
