Max Overdrive for me. AC/DCs soundtrack (Who Made Who) was the first cassette tape I ever bought. The scene where the guy gets killed by the vending machine was legendary.

Howard the duck only has Lea Thomson going for it really, imo

I went with Howard, it's got Lea Thompson and I thought it was genuinely funny.

Love'em both but I had to give "Howard" the nod, as I've seen it way more times than I've seen "Maximum."

I actually saw "Howard the Duck" in a theater in 1986. Judging from its famously meager box office performance, I think I'm one of only a few dozen people who can make that claim.  TeddyR

Seen Howard the Duck, and well.....I got bored with it. Maximum Overdrive, though, that is a classic to show my friends.

yeah no.

howard the duck kind of sucked.  The first half was about him trying to adapt to earth and finding a way home.  The second half was like a totally different movie about him trying to be an action hero.  Lucas should have picked what kind of movie he wanted to do instead of changing his mind half way threw.
