I'm glad someone finally commented on that, I'm wondering if Miyagi and Daniel-San were practicing Wax On Wax Off in more ways than one??? (Not that there's anything wrong with that...although D-S was only supposed to be 16)

We caught this on ABC Family again last night too.  Its funny, the Mrs. and I were saying the exact same thing - movies like this, and the Goonies, are so great and it just doesn't seem like they make them like this anymore.  I know my family/friends enjoyed movies like that when I was growing up - even into teenage years, but if they were made these days they would probably have to target a much younger crowd.  Teenagers now are often too cynical to just enjoy movies like these it seems.  This is one movie I always mean to pick up on DVD, but never have, but it was nice to see it again last night.

With Rocky, Rambo, Die Hard, and Indy all being revisited, can a new Karate Kid be far behind?

You should definitely pick up the DVD set...My kids love watching the original...II was a fun trip down memory lane...III is worth having just to see how horrible a movie can become.  IV is more like a made for TV movie....but entertaining.

The success of this movie was its argument as a bildungroman or learning novel, the skill is the martial art which lets the hero grow.
The music was incredible with songs like "cruel summer", "moment of truth", "you´re the best"

parts I and II were the best.

I saw wear Ralph Macchio (sp?) is now in his fifties.  That makes me feel really old.

Macchio still looks like a kid.  He was in Beer League a couple years ago, and honestly he doesn't look like he's aged much.  Good for him I guess.

Wasn't he close to thirty when he made the first Karate Kid?

Ralph turned 23 (born 11/4/1961) the year The Karate Kid was released (1984).
