It was the weekend of June 30th, 26 years ago, that my mom took my little brother and me to see The Karate Kid. I loved The Karate Kid. I had an entire scrapbook filled with Ralph Macchio articles. I loved that we both celebrate our birthdays on November 4. I love that like me, Ralph Macchio was born and raised (well, when not acting) on Long Island. I showed you my old diary entry about the day we first saw The Karate Kid. I've blogged about The Karate Kid soundtrack.Yes, next to ET and The Goonies, The Karate Kid was one of my favorite childhood movies.
With all of the excitement surrounding the remake, I'm kinda bummed to be honest. I have vented my anger regarding The Karate Kid remake with Will Smith's son on both Twitter and Facebook. I am so anti-remakes, especially when they mess with my childhood memories. Can't we just keep things the way they were?
You must check out this Funny or Die video with Ralph Macchio, trust me, you'll be glad you did!
