The Real Karate Kid

I never saw Karate Kid growing up. In fact, I missed out on a lot of defining movies of the 80s because my family just didn’t go to the theater to see films. We rented movies from the bargain rental shops, and those films rarely included the regular picks of my generation.

But I do enjoy going back and giggling at the old movies with the hindsight of the 21st century.

Kudos to J. Matthew Turner for this look back on this silly movie. One of my favorite comedians, Gary Gulman, has a pretty good riff on the Karate Kid too.

Sometimes you’ve just got to kick nostalgia in the tuckus.
