From the creative mind of George Lucas...

George Lucas really hasn't released that many movies over the years when you think about it. So when one of his greatest triumphs ever reaches a milestone it's a fitting thing to commemorate it. It was twenty years ago today - August 1st, 1986 - that Howard the Duck was hatched in theaters. Yes the summer of 1986 gave us many great cinema classics - Aliens, Transformers: The Movie, etc. - but Howard the Duck certainly stands out as... well, something. Anyway, happy 20th birthday Howard!

Believe it or not, HOWARD THE DUCK will always hold a special little place in my heart. Not because of its sheer cinematic scope and genius (insert sarcasm here), but rather that I saw it the night before I moved from West Virginia to North Carolina.

Coincidentally, it is also the first movie that I ever saw in a theater, at the ripe old age of thirteen.

It's interesting to see what we use as period markers in our lives...
