DVD Review #26 (Amadeus, Howard The Duck)

AMADEUS

The incredible story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told in flashback by his peer and secret rival Antonio Salieri - now confined to an insane asylum.

This film may be from 1984, but it is a film well worth seeing. Even if you are not into Mozart and or his music. An amazing movie from beginning to end. I have watched this film so much that I have lost count. I first got to see it when I bought the VHS around 1992 and I still have it. Even now, it gets a watch at least once or twice a year. It's just one of those movies you like to watch again and again. Well, for me anyway.

My rating - I am giving this film a full 10 stars.

HOWARD THE DUCK


A sarcastic humanoid duck is pulled from his homeworld to Earth where he must stop an alien invader.

This 1986 film stars Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones and Tim Robbins. Many people don't know this, but Howard The Duck is based on a Marvel Comics character. Anyhow, I like this film very much. It was the "Ted" of its day, I would guess. It didn't get much critic accalim nor did it smash any box office records, but it has fallen into that "Cult Classic" catagory. I think it's a pretty funny movie. Not that the butt shot of Lea in her panties isn't amusing, it may be worth the cost of the video alone. LOL Don't worry, it's the only "hot" shot in film. believe this or not, but I would let my nephew watch it. The only problem with that is my sister. She may not allow it. Haha

My rating - For what it's worth, you have to approach this film in the proper manner. With that being said, I am giving this movie a solid 8 stars. Why? Because it's a duck! Named Howard! It's cute, funny and it has that one very good Lea Thompson shot.
