Karate Kid

    I just saw this movie for the first time, and even though it's cliche and everyone makes jokes about it, I found it to be really good.

    Karate Kid STARTED that cliche.

    Awk, then you need to watch some better movies my friend.

    Actually , I think Karate kid totally ripped off Rocky . they stole the plot from the Rocky movie the ethnic background from the main character in Rocky .

    But still, Karate kid is an awesome movie.

    I just liked the story, it wasn't like it amazing plot or cinematography, and it wasn't like a life changing thing. One GREAT movie is Tears of the Sun.

    Turning nose? In what direction? Up?

    The Karate Kid was alright, but by time they got to The Karate Kid XII, it had lost a bit.

    Wow, that definitely sounds overdone. Hell, even a single sequel seems to much. I think the ending was fine, and their wouldn't be a need for any sequels.

    Really I don't know how many they made. But it was definitely a case of overkill.

    They ran the Karate Kid and a couple of sequels on American Airlines flights for about three years. I didn't think they would ever get a new movie! Course that was before portable DVD players. :biggrin:

    I've never been on a flight with an inflight movie (except maybe when we flew to Hawaii when I was 2), we always fly Southwest. Last september my aunt found us tickets for $100 each way from ABQ to Portland, we love Southwest.
