    "If I had anywhere to go I wouldn't be in Cleve-Land."
    -Millions of Voices Crying Out In Terror

    Howard the Duck boats a heap of incredible practical effects from the peak of the era that demand to be seen. The grande finale monster battle / light show has some tremendous shots that are pretty unparalleled.

    Perfectly adequate 80s sci-fi / action. Terrible as an adaptation. Still more fun that Blade Runner. While the whole package is fine if taken on…

    There's a certain level of "bad" that certain movies can achieve, and thereby become supremely entertaining, while there are certain movies that achieve another certain level of bad, and are maybe just a little too close on the side of "competent" to become thoroughly enjoyable. While I was hoping for a hi-larious experience along the lines of OVER THE TOP or NO HOLDS BARRED, what I actually got was.....HOWARD THE DUCK, a singular experience unto itself. The first 45 minutes…

    An extra half star for this screening being on a 35mm print, with Val Mayerek (the original illustrator of Howard) watching the film completely for the first time all the way through and giving a very insightful Q&A afterwards.

    Its alright fun. Think its main problem is that it is too grown up for kids and way to childish for adults. Luckily I am a big kid so this works for me.

    "No one laughs at a master of Quack Fu!"

    Another film that is hated for all the wrong reasons. Its pretty darn awesome.

    A man duck from another universe comes to Earth, does Kung-Fu, meets a lead singer of a RIOT GRRRLL band then shit goes down such as an Emperor Palpatine Jeffery Jones, a fucked up Rancor battle and a generic theme song to the film's title character.

    Duck and human beastiality ensued.

    I've give it one thing: it's got personality.

    I suppose that better be a good thing when you're trading good writing, quality special-effects and a plot that can actually sustain interest for an abundance of it. Which still isn't enough.

    This movie isn't really as bad as many say. It is still very bad, though.

    When Howard and his recliner are being pulled through time and space, he crashes through various duck-filled apartments, one of which features a naked female duck bathing. Her bare breasts, nipples and all, are exposed for all to see. As film is a collaborative art, think about how many people had to approve the duck tits. Concept artists worked on designing the duck tits, likely drawing varying shapes and sizes of duck tits. These concept drawings…

    aka Howard: A New Breed of Hero

    I've had this on my watchlist for years but it was recently bumped to the top thanks to a cameo appearance by Howard in a recent high profile film. The DVD started with a trailer for 'Super Mario Bros' which put me in the right frame of mind since Howard the Duck has a reputation as one of the worst films ever made. However I think that's quite unfair. It's not a great…

    Llegué a esto gracias a Guardians of the Galaxy. Posiblemente una de las peores películas que he visto, pero en todo lo que se ve y se escucha hay una atmósfera incoherentemente graciosa.

    No se siente ni un poco de simpatía por Howard más allá de querer que se calle, y aun así uno sigue viendo la película después de las actuaciones, diálogos, música, visuales y argumento. Todo es mediocre y sin sentido pero hay algo divertido por lo que uno ilógicamente se engancha.

    "That's it, no more Mr. Nice Duck."
