Dheiner: Hulk?


No. The Hulk (take your pick) was a movie masterpiece compared to the film in the article. So horrible, I swore I would never speak or write its name.

I like to think that every film needs a fan, and any piece of art should have someone who can appreciate it. And I'm glad you found something you enjoy.

But I'm also sorry. So, so sorry... :-)

No, there's no shame in it. We all have our guilty pleasures. For some inexplicable reason, for example, I really like the movie, "Lord of Illusions". Shh, tell no one... :-)

Nefarious: Sgt Otter: Elektra?

I'll agree with that. Elektra was unbelievably awful. Howard was good for a drinking game. Neither bore much resemblance to their source material.
 
2014-05-31 01:40:37 PM  
I'll put a movie with a talking duck and that shows Lea Thompson's ass over Spider Man 3. and Over the Amazing Spider Man 2. Please cut it out with the multiple bad guys in a super hero movie. Many directors cannot pull it off.
 
2014-05-31 01:42:34 PM  
*shrugs* I'be seen much, much worse. At least it didn't take itself seriously. Now Elektra on the other hand is made sadder by the fact that everyone in it was acting the hell out of the material.

HTD was a movie made for the 80's. If we could watch "Labyrinth", we could watch anything.

i never realized how unpopular that movie was until i was in high school (late 90s).  when i was a little kid i must have seen that movie 100 times, i watched it constantly and thought it was hilarious.  it was just so bizarre and batshiat crazy that i loved it.  and then i found out it was on all sorts of  "worst movie ever" lists and i couldn't figure out what those people were smoking.  how can they not like it?  to this day, i have a soft spot in my heart for it, but i don't think i could ever watch it now, it would ruin all my positive memories of watching it when i was a kid.

Watch it recently. It's bad, but in a "watch it with your friends while drinking" kind of way, not an "totally unwatchable" kind of way

Knowing what we know now about duck sexuality (they are some rapey motherfarkers) that scene has a whole new interesting undertone now.

Howard the Duck is a total Rule 34 movie: anthropomorphic duck nudity, interspecies sex, Cleveland (not the steamer, the actual city). and a sex offender lead actor (Jeffrey Jones for child porn and solicitation of a minor).

I mean, seriously?  What a gross movie!  Taking place in Cleveland?

The only movie I ever walked out on.  Went on opening night with a group of friends and we were all completely baked.  I can't believe any amount of drugs can make that movie watchable.  Turned out we were not alone, and the parking lot was a lot more entertaining that night.

Wow, so many terrible Marvel movies I'd forgotten about. What a joke. I mean I still don't care for their movies, but that's a personal thing. There's no doubt that lately they've been knocking it out of the park. So what changed? It can't just be Fox that's to blame for all the crap. Some of those movies were done by other studios (the first Hulk was by Universal, the Fantastic Four movies were by 1492 Pictures and Constantin Film, the Blade movies were by New Line, Daredevil was by Regency Enterprises). Obviously things started to turn around when Marvel formed their own studio and made Iron Man. I guess I answered my own question.

Marvel Xmen and Lucas's rape of Starwars and Indiana Jones is the reason I stopped going to the movies. Too many mental scars from those.

Howard the Duck was a masterpiece compared to most of the films on that list. Ghost Rider and that second thing with the Ghost Rider name on them especially. But If you put them side-by-side and said "You must choose" I'd take HTD over Amazing Spider Man, ASM2, Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider SoV, Daredevil, Elektra, Fantastic Four 2 (the first one was on par, IMHO, with HTD), and X3/Origins/The Wolverine, and almost all of the pre-2000 stuff linked up there.

The Lundgren Punisher doesn't stick in my memory as being that terrible but I haven't watched it since I was 15, so I'm just going to never watch it again and have a better memory of it than anyone else appears to.

But my question is... has anyone actually seen the Hoff's Nick Fury movie? I haven't, and I'm ragingly curious how it really was.

It came up on "Impact On Demand" or something like that a few years ago. I tried watching it but I don't remember much. A lot of Hoff wearing an eyepatch and punching people, mostly.

I actually liked the Lundgren Punisher flick better than the Thomas Jane one. I think it was because Lundgren's Punisher was an angry badass on a rampage rather the way I remember him being in the comics I'd read than a crying cop getting his ass kicked around and lucking into killing his enemies. Plus, no Travolta.

Not Marvel (i think) but Darkman is the best terrible comicbook movie of all time.

I Looks like someone's never seen the 70s era Dr. Strange movie. I know these movies are known for changing the plot, but other than the names of the characters it bears zero resemblance to the comic. I mean he's a doctor and he kinda sorta does magicky stuff, but mostly its 90 minutes of people screaming at fans and colored lights.

You people claiming HTD is better than both of the new Spidey films seriously need to just farking stop it.

The first one was unneeded but taken on its own merits is a good film.  The new one is simply the best Spiderman film TO-DATE.

Seriously.  Just stop.  As a 42 year old life long Spiderman fan, who has stuck by the character thru some seriously horrible stories....  yeah, the new film is pretty goddamned good.

Raimi's trilogy was cheesy, hammy, and while it had its moments, mostly aged like Wonderbread and the third film was not even as good as the third X-Men film.

/taken for what it IS, Howard the Duck is watchable.  There are FAR worse films.  Take Time Bandits, for example.  That movie sucks like no one's business and is for some reason acclaimed.
