The Karate Kid

The Karate Kid

Postby theken » 15 Aug 2005, 19:11

By far, one of my favorite movies of all time. It's so fascinating that one very weird boy can learn karate from a old coot by performing household chores. Forever stuck in my mind: Wax on, wax off.

three was made just because ralph macchio was out of work and i guess the movie studio felt bad when he was panhandling out in front of their offices. however, i must say, the next karate kid was much much much much worse than any movie in recent memory, with the exception of.......shudder.......fever pitch.

I watched a bit of the first one, like 5 minutes. I don't see why Simmons has such a hard-on for it. It wasn't that good. And I dont feel the need to go out and get it.

Did you really think an 80s movie was going to be 'good' I mean really, that's not the point.

The whole thing is just so improbable that it's spellbinding.

The Karate Kid was 80's genius at its prime.

Theken, Doozer, and __ weren't even around when the first couple came out. Frightening.

No. You won't get it and it'll ruin it for the rest of us.

It's a great movie. What with that scrawny white kid from a suburban city being the Karate champion of entire Los Angeles county. Other than that, its a beaut.
