P.s Spoilers

I just wonder how he got this high in the air in the first place.

Well you take one of the most iconic movies of the 1980’s and Ralph Macchio (aka, the Mark Hamill of Inspirational sports movies) and turn it into this.  Is it better?  Is it worse?  Tough call.  All I know is that I’m about to sweep the leg.

  1. Karate Kid?  Ok, the most blaring thing about this movie is that they’re not actually doing any Karate.  A) they are in China.  B) Karate is Japanese.  C) They are doing Kung-Fu.  They glaze over this small detail with a Toe-may-toe / Toe-Mah-Toe type moment.  But honestly why call the movie Karate kid when HE DOESN’T DO A SINGLE LICK OF KARATE IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE?  To me it doesn’t make sense but whatevsies.  I didn’t produce this movie.
  2. It’s hard to find that many other criticisms of this movie as it currently leads the box office and overall I found it pretty entertaining.  It’s a definite that Jaden Smith is going to be the next big thing.  Give him 5-6 years and he’ll have ALL the ladies swooning.  (Including your mothers.)
  3. I did like the authenticity that Jackie Chan brought to the role however I didn’t feel that his loss of a child thing/destroying the car was as genuine as possible.
  4. Wax On, Wax Off vs. Hang up the Jacket.  Wax On/Wax Off feels more real to me.  The jacket thing still teaches us a valuable lesson.  No matter how many times you throw your jacket on a dirty ground in Jackie Chan’s courtyard, it’s still going to be immaculately clean whenever you come back.
  5. If you haven’t seen this movie go out and see it, it’s good.  Now for funny pictures and movie clips.

Everyone is Jumping on the Karate Kid Bandwagon!!!

This really puts Martial Arts Movies in perspective….

Finally.  THE GREATEST MARTIAL ARTS FIGHT EVER.  (From Crippled Masters a feature from the 70’s about a guy with no arms and a guy with no legs that join forces to become the ULTIMATE fighting machine!!!  P.s I’ve actually seen this entire movie.  Wow)
