I realize saying what I'm about to say is akin to jumping on the ground and then yelling "Dog Pile!" But I'm gonna do it anyway.
The new "Karate Kid" movie doesn't look half bad.
I am a big fan of the original, and when I heard they were remaking it, I was appalled. Then I heard it would star Will Smith's son, and I lost interest even more. Then the other day I noticed the trailer was up when browsing trailers. I thought to myself, "Oh God, let's see how awful this is gonna be."
Then, I actually liked what I saw. It looks somewhat faithful to the original without being a carbon copy. The kid wasn't annoying. I got the feeling it was honoring the original more than saying, "We can do this better."
Anyway, I'm now somewhat interested and will probably want to see this.
