    Some films throughout history become famous for how bad they are. Their titles become synonymous with phrases like "worst movie ever made" or "box office poison". One such film is "Howard the Duck", a project that was ill-concieved from the start and led to executives at Universal Pictures being fired and many of the primaries involved in the production having difficulty finding work after its release.

    It's an oddity, really, more of a "what were they thinking" dud than anything…

    progetto raffazzonato, né per bambini né per adulti, improbabile, risibile, eppure gli voglio bene

    Lasst mich mal nachdenken was mir an dem Film gefallen hat: Eine sehr scharfe Lea Thompson und das war es dann auch. Das Design von Howard ist vor allem heute betrachtet doch sehr bescheiden und die meisten Witze sind auch irgendwie altbacken. Bleibt zu hoffen, dass Marvel für einen womöglich neuen Film etwas besseres aus dem Hut zaubert.

    In the beginning there was...oh boy...

    Yes, Marvel's first foray into the modern cinema, outside of spinoff television films and backdoor pilots from its Incredible Hulk TV series, is this misbegotten film about an anthropomorphic duck who's been forcibly transported to our dimension (or planet or something...the film's not quite clear on that point.) This film is notorious as being one of the worst films of all time.

    It kind of lives up to the billing (no pun intended), but…

    “In the Beginning there was… Howard the Duck!”, I wonder if Wilard Huyck and George Lucas were anticipating the future success of Marvel studios when they decided to utter these lines in such a biblical fashion. Perhaps they thought that Howard would bring a new era of comic motion pictures that were non stop blockbusters that would cater to both adults and children alike. “Howard the Duck” was, in every sense, the furthest it could possibly be from this picture…

    Howard the Duck has had the legacy of being one of cinema’s worst films. However, I found it enjoyable, and quite frankly underrated. The film doesn’t deserve all the flack, as I think there are far worse films out there than this one. Howard the Duck is an amusing, cheesy film from the 80’s, and it can easily be attributed as a guilty pleasure to many. The film is decent at best, and fun, mindless entertainment that shouldn’t be taken…

    Para mí es canon del Universo cinematográfico de Marvel. Y además está clarísimo que Beverly y Howard son los padre de Star Lord.

    No és que sigui excepcional, però t'ho passes pipa amb el munt de referències per metre quadrat que té, amb aquests diàlegs fins i punxeguts, amb aquesta burla permanent als llavis i les seves bogeries la mar de valentes i populars.

    I bé, ja sabem d'on surt Men in Black, no?

    Why is a duck trying to have sex with a human?

    It started out bad but sort of watchable but after a while I just started to get bored. Luckily the ending is awesome! A talking duck from space vs. a giant stop-motion monster! Then, to make things even better there's a concert with Lea Thompson and Howard in a guitar battle. Love that! Catchy bad song too. Shame the rest of the movie is pretty damn stupid/boring. I did not like this movie. I'm glad I watched it though. Sort of. It's insane this was made.

    I had such a crush on Lea Thompson as a kid and it came rushing back watching this movie.
