Howard the Duck Reviews
Anyways, now was a good time as ever for a rewatch. While the whole thing IS sort of stupid, it definitely does have that eighties vibe, Howard sort of is amusing, and Lea Thompson is somewhat goofy to look at with her crimped-to-death hair. The greatest thimg about this rewatch though, is Tim Robbins in his hungry actor phase. Keep building up that resume kid!
I felt they could have done a superman like origin story or even had Howard being a bounty hunter/space traveler.
In saying all that I did like it. If you like a bit of mindless fun that's a little different Howard the Duck is for you.

YOU WILL BELIEVE THAT A DUCK CAN TALK.
From the guy who brought you Star Wars here is his decline as a good director/producer,Howard The Duck. A long time ago a great filmmaker helped make a parallel dimension in a galaxy far,far away. A strange world with bizarre aliens and unbelievable creatures. A world that the Scifi community will never forget,ok screw it it's Howard The Duck. ANd you thought Jar Jar Binks was bad wel he still is but Howard is equal to him.
The film centers on this crazy cigar-chomping extraterrestrial duck named Howard who is accidentally beamed to earth and finds love with a pretty punk-rock singer. But their happiness is threatened when a space demon comes down from the beam that brought Howard.
This has got to be the worst Marvel movie ever, its so bad bad it makes Elektra look Oscar worthy. It's the worst thing George Lucas help make since Star Wars Episode I which I think came after this shit. Apart from being silly,stupid and surprisingly boring this film is so mean spirited everything is shot in the dark,someone or something is always trying to kill Howard it's just a very unpleasant stupid movie with stupid and obnoxious characters that you couldn't give two shits about.
You will believe a duck can blow. This film blows a half out of five.
