Lost But Not Forgotten: Howard The Duck (1986)

Howard the Duck
dir. Willard Huyck (1986)

From the lost vault of George Lucas produced pictures, Howard the Duck is one of those movies that you remember seeing but remember nothing about. Except me, I remember it clearly cause I'm weird like that. Starring Lea Thompson, Tim Robbins and the child porn charge battling Jeffery Jones, this movie is a bizarre ride on a live action adaptation of a cult comic book. Ray guns that bring aliens to the planet, life size ducks and mad scientists abound in this film that many people hold as "gladly forgotten" but I beg to differ. Sure, it's not a master piece, but have you been to the movies lately? At least this film is fun to watch...and unfortunately not in print. Thankfully, my pal the negative cutter can fix that. So pick up a copy over at...

Wow! I haven't seen Howard the Duck in ages! I actually enjoyed it, I'm on of the few I suppose.
