In 1986, my world changed. Howard the Duck came out and for some reason I became obsessed with it. I don’t remember how it happen or why, but I do remember watching it and really enjoying it. I must have driven my entire family mad with the repetition.
Last night, I found the movie on Netflix. And I attempted to get in touch with my youth by watching it.
Through the eyes of a seven year old, the movie was an amazing fantasy with rock musicians, space travel, and a wise-cracking duck.
Some twenty-three odd years later, it was painful to sit through. Within the first five minutes, I was confronted with female duck boobs…and it all went downhill from there.
There are some beloved movies from my childhood that still remain favorites of mine today and that I hope to one day share with my own children. Howard the Duck is not one of them.
So tell me…what did you love as a child that you will now avoid? Pokemon? Peanut butter & banana Sandwiches? Share your childhood likes…that are now unlikes.
