Let it be known that The Karate Kid is one of my absolute favourite movies of all time. An instantly likable flick, it has a great cast, a story suitable for all ages, and one of the best relationships in movie history; not just between the the two main characters, but between the viewer and the film, too. There's no denying that, among others, magic and triumph-in-the-air movies were the most pro... read more

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

Like most of the kids of my generation, I grew with those Karate Kid flicks and it was with a great joy and nostalgia that I re-watched them with Nick, my step-son. 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

Fall 2020 Viewings (40 movies items)

"Format: DVD Viewing: Umpteenth Thoughts: Binging the Cobra Kai series on Netflix made me want to revisit the original movies so bad, especially the first film. Hard to believe it's been 36 years since the first film was released. What makes the original Karate Kid so great is the deliberate slow pacing that gives you a real feel for the characters and story. Much like Rocky, it's an underdog story and Daniel's long journey to the final victory is a joy to watch."

You know......for kids! (166 movies items)

"Poor Daniel, he goes through quite the rough treatment at the hand of the bullies in the film. Granted, he does win in the end, gains self respect, and kind of sort of gets the girl, but still... Also, it seems like Daniel has bad luck, with the ladies, his girl friend in part one, leaves him for some one else, in part two. And there is also internet theory, that suggests that in retrospect Daniel is an even bigger jerk than Johnny."
