This thread is being taken way too seriously, but oh what the hell. I have to comment on these two things: "No wonder, These movies are geared towards those people who CAN read." No way. If anything, this movie is made for the people who can't read. Or are too lazy to read, at least. I mean, if you can read, why don't you just read the books? Why go see the non-challenging movie? "So? 'Lucas directed Howard the Duck.'" No! That's not true...that's impossible! Nooooooo...seriously, no. Lucas did not direct or even write Howard the Duck, he only ponied up the cash so his American Graffiti co-writers could make it.
