Everything GREAT About The Karate Kid! (1984)

The Karate Kid is obviously a classic and since I'm all hyped up on Cobra Kai, it felt like as good a time as any to go back and avoid the insane racism while really figuring out who the hero of the story is. Was Barney wrong? Is it the lifetime karate king? Or the pure of heart karate kid? Here's everything right with The Karate Kid! (1984)

    Johnny was never a real villain bc he's simply a victim, Cobra Kai shows that very well, and if the first scene of KK2 was the last scene of KK1, as it was firstly imagined, more people would have realized that right away

    Okey, I have questions (could someone please explain?): 1. Why did they cut the scene when Ali is trying to explain? Without it, Ali to me seems like Daniel should know what´s she is thinking when he does not know how serious that kiss with her ex was for her. 2. If they had a scene when Ali is trying to explain, why does Daniel think that he is no good for her when they see each other? My english is not perfect, I know :)

    I don’t think I’d call this a Millennial’s movie... It was more of a Gen X movie as were all of the John Hughes films. Millennials were like 2 years old when this movie came out. I was 13 and it was mesmerizing seeing it on the Big Screen with my 14 year old cousin.

And it was just--it was sitting there. It was...so teed up. Trust me, if you were in my shoes, you would've done the exact same thing. Johnny clearly overreacted to that."

    "You're alright, Larusso." I never heard that line before, but it is CRUCIAL to humanizing Johnny. He gained respect for the kid he was bullying, but he still had to deal with the loss and the abuse of his own sensei who cared only about winning.

    I only saw this film the first time while a late teenager, and I connected with it strongly thanks the fact that I had a Mr. Miyagi of sorts in my life. A WWII vet name Mr. Eugene Lakatos, who survived the Battle of the Bulge and was a school tutor, helping me get on track with my schooling and homework through Middle and High School. He has a special place in my heart, as I never knew my maternal grandfather, and he had a grandfatherly role in my life.

Who would have ever thought you could be a 'Nerd' & a Cobra Kai karate student in the same year. Maybe this is where he learnt the clap yor hands technique ..amazing !!

    The 80s were just absolutely brutal. People who have nostalgia for that era didn't live through it and have no idea what they're talking about, or they have some kind of amnesia. Just a wretched, ugly, horrible time to be alive. Be grateful to be in 2021, no matter the challenges we face now.

      @Mikez Let's say a kid in the neighborhood doesn't fit the stereotype of what people think he should be. Because of the Internet, there are all sorts of communities, message boards and video platforms where he can meet people who are exactly like him. He'll learn that it's ok to like theater more than football, that it doesn't make him weird, that it doesn't mean he'll remain a virgin or friendless forever. If this were the 80s, he would've gotten severely harassed for something as innocent as wearing a purple shirt to school. And he'd be the one apologizing for having worn the purple shirt. I don't question any of the things you brought up, but I don't agree that technology is the cause. I would argue that technology is the reason those problems aren't even worse, that technology has slowed the descent into hell.

      Disagree. Social media and technology that pervades our society is poison. Suicides, depression, identity confusion, broken families, fatherlessness are all up among teenagers today compared to then. I think you look at the 80's through mud covered glasses. I grew up in the 8ps and 90s and I WISH my boys could experience the childhood I had. Edit: I should have asked you to explain your comment more, sorry!
