The Karate Kid


Recommended Posts



holy crap, when did this happen?

this series is one of my favourites of all time. one of the reasons i started martial arts.

interesting that they have 1 and 2 on for release but not 3 or next karate kid. granted they werent as good but still deserve a spot on my shelf.

awesome.

OT slightly yet another film getting a rehash/reboot is Hollywood so out of ideas that every year there is either a sequel/remake/reboot during their Summer I wonder if I will live to see a year where everything isnt as above in the cinemas the worst offensive is off course remakes of Foreign films because the Americans dont want to read subtitles [Girl With The Dragon Tattoo & Let The Right One In] to name to coming in the next year

Your the best used to be the song i listened to when psyching myself up for gradings etc.

as a karate student these films are extremely important to me, the amount of philosophy in these films is phenomenal and should be required watching for any martial artists.

and if you want to see something recent of ralph macchio and william zabka (johnny) check this out

Ralph Macchio has been in most episodes of Ugly Betty this season, still looks very young for his age. I really enjoyed the first two movies and had them on Laserdisc I think (it's a long time ago).

I don't know whether I liked them well enough to lash out on the BDs.

Scrolling through the IMDB pics I came across this one of my favourite books at the time and great flick.But what a cast!Tom Cruise?

Unreal! Which one is Macchio. Those short sleeved T's and tight jeans are really too much!
