This Movie is the "Best! Around..."

This movie is the epitome of the totally awesome 80s. From the classic quotable lines to the hip soundtrack, this movie showcases an entire generation including my need to relive Ralph Macchio's character during my youth. To this day, I have yet to hear a better, more inspirational theme song, "Your the Best!".

A classic

To be honest, you can skip the sequels but this first installment is still actually pretty good. Especially if you watch it as a kid, it is pretty much a total blast. Basically, it follows the standard formula : a kid gets into trouble... read more

To be honest, you can skip the sequels but this first installment is still actually pretty good. Especially if you watch it as a kid, it is pretty much a total blast. Basically, it follows the standard formula : a kid gets into trouble, finds a master, they don’t get along at first but they eventually become best pals and, at the end, the kid becomes some kind of martial arts expert. And, of course, he is never allowed to fight (yeah, right…)!So, the whole thing is actually really pedestrian and predictable but Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita were both charismatic and they had some great chemistry together.
