Ok this may be more at home in the Movies section of the forums, so feel free to move it mods. I posted this here as everyman and his dog has seen The Karate Kid, and whether you like it or not, it was one of the most (if not the most) watched martial arts film of the last 25 years.

The Karate Kid is being remade. That's right folks, they are doing it again:

http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/art...0remake_1045714

At first glance this may not mean much to most, but I have read some posts by folks about the good/bad things the origianl Karate Kid did for Martial arts, particularly Karate.

Maybe a whole new generation of kids about to pester their parents to bring them to Krotty class to learn Crane Kick.......

Too funny. I actually had a friend try that thing on me when he learned I was studying. I loved it. He must have not "do right" cuz I absolutely could defense. In fact, it helped my offense... really easy to throw someone who voluntarily takes both feet off the ground, and does it very badly.

I just might see it.

It's a good thing Ralph Macchio isn't playing the lead, have you seen how he's let himself go?

Who's going to play Mr. Miyagi? Now that Pat Morita is dead (rest his soul), who can play the part of the wise old man.

You know...I bought it to share with my kids...and was a little disenchanted. It was so...cheesy...so...'80's. And now that I know a little about karate...the karate is downright...embarrassing.

"Mr Miyagi, if I fight in that tournament I'll get killed!"

-"either way, problem solve"

or
