    Was just looking at IMDB and they are remaking The Karate Kid.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1155076/

    Hopefully we get some remakes of some of the 80s music.

    Wax on, wax off.

    Your 80's card has been revoked!!!

    It actually looks cute! I wouldn't see it in the theater, but I'd Netflix it.

    After I watched Karate Kid 2 in the theaters I took a flier that was by the concessions and took karate. I was good. I won first place in my second tournament. Its too bad I quit.

    I heard/read that too....but this is the trailer and karate is still in the title. I bet the reference will be the stupid kid will call it karate and say he's a karate kid and miagi will say no, it's kung fu. So it'll be more like a joke reference than a literal one.

    Here's hoping Elizabeth Shue isn't as fat this time.

    As soon as I saw the trailer I was appalled. I still am but my biggest problem with it is not that it looks like a crappy movie.. it could be alright, but the name of the movie is horrible.

    A remake should be a remake, not a movie with a similar scenario.. Why did they have to call it Karate Kid? that's just epic failure. Makes me sad.

    Yeah, I agree this movie is going to suck.

    The only redeeming quality seems to be that Taraji P. Henson is in it.

    I think every kid that grew up in the 80s took some sort of martial arts, its like our right of passage.

    Martial arts were huge in the 80s. We watched karate kid, played karate champ in the arcade and watched bruce lee become a huge hero in the 80s.

    Me personally, I took tae kwon do, I had to quit when I was almost 14 because it was becoming a 4 day a week thing and was getting in the way of baseball. I finished with a blue belt with a red stripe. A part of me wishes I stuck it out and got a black belt.....I am going to take again in the future when my son is a little older....

    oh and this trailer makes this movie look unwatchable.

    I remember in middle school talent shows, kids would get on stage and do just a bunch of karate moves.

    It was hilarious. But, yes, I took karate as well.
