The Year’s Worst Movie Title

Like most sane moviegoers, Entertainment Weekly writer Clark Collis initially reacted to news of a new Uwe Boll film called Blubberella the same way he would to the prospect of a Joaquin Phoenix documentary. But it turns out a plan by the “craptastic filmmaker” to make a fat female superhero tale with Lindsay Hollister is dead serious.

Collis is uniquely qualified when it comes to the writing transom of EW on Uwe. Back in 2006, the journalist was deemed a “p*ssy” by the filmmaker after being ordered to abandon the idea of participating in the 2006 critics-vs.-Boll boxing match extravaganza known as “Raging Boll.”

Enterprising film bloggers may want to get on the Twitter horn with Jane Fonda or track down a “.fr” e-mail address for the estate of her former Barbarella director Roger Vadim. Even Robert Rodriguez, whose on-again off-again plans to remake the 1968 sci-fi camp classic currently appear to be off, would be a good follow-up target.

In the meantime, our favorite online comment so far to the EW Collis story is this one from Itchy, who writes: ”Just don’t download it [Postal] on Bit Torrent or the guy’ll sue your ass! True story!’ We believe you, Itchy.
