    I'll have to trust you, because I'll never see it.

    What?...Warner *did* release "Electric Dreams" and we didn't notice?? ;)

    I guess I'm the only one who would like to see this released.

    The way I see it, there's no way they intended it to be "high art",
    and they probably weren't even shooting for "good", so it's OK.

    I would love to see Howard the Duck. I even have the soundtrack on vinyl

    No, you aren't. HTD isn't a good film by any stretch of the
    imagination, but it's not nearly as bad as most people would like you

    If nothing else, it'd be worth having it on DVD just to be able to
    watch (and rewatch) Jeffrey Jones's turn as The Dark Overlord of the

    on easy-gag punchlines of the previous poster, and NOT trying to

    Of course, that's within the pre-stated boundaries of there being no

    stripping down to her scivvies.
