2. Howard The Duck (1986)
I spotted a copy of the Howard the Duck DVD in a charity shop I visited a while back. Finding a copy of the (ahem) classic comic book adaptation anywhere is pretty impressive but I was more concerned with exactly where in the shop the workers had chosen to display it. You see rather than keeping Howard where he rightfully deserves (with other films for grown ups) it was in a box marked 'kids films'. Sure Howard is a cuddly albeit creepy looking incarnation of Donald Duck but ladies and gents that's where the similarities end. Would Walt Disney release a film featuring the quirky but cute Uncle Donald in which he has sex with a human? Perhaps but I doubt it'd see the light of day. But that's exactly what happens in Howard the Duck. So you can hopefully see why the decision to stick the DVD in with kids favourites such as Pingu was a bad one? It never ceases to amaze me that this gigantic failure of a movie is from the same brain that brought us Star Wars. It just goes to show that Mr Lucas really did strike it lucky with his one decent idea.
