1986's Howard the Duck may have been the moment we stopped having quite so much faith in George Lucas. His big-screen adaptation of the comic about an alien duck who falls to Earth tried hard to capture writer Steve Gerber's gonzo sensibility, but veered badly off course. Like this scene, where Howard has a weirdly sexy moment with his friend Beverly. "Do you think I could find romance in the animal kingdom?" she asks. But we also have a clip of the genuinely awesome opening, where Howard whizzes through space while a cheesy voice-over explains the multiverse.
