FILM REVIEW: The Karate Kid PDF Print E-mail

the-karate-kid-movie_web.jpgWhen I first found out that the 1984 film classic, The Karate Kid, was going to be remade, I wasn’t at all excited.  We are now in the era of remakes.  Classic and cult favorite movies and TV shows are being remade based on new technology. 

Unfortunately, many filmmakers rely too heavily on technology and not enough on actual story, plot, acting, directing, or even audience interest.  A lot of the recent remakes should not have been remade and have defiled the greatness of the original work.  Not so with The Karate Kid. This is a remake that’s worth watching.

When the group arrived in Southern cities, he said, the police would warn them to “leave town” by a certain time because of racism.

­­­jill-scott_web.jpgStill riding the success of his 2009 BLACKsummers’night CD, R & B heartthrob Maxwell performed before a near-capacity crowd at the AmericanAirlines arena on Monday, June 14.

Maxwell always delivers a great live performance, but this summer’s show paled slightly in comparison to last year’s, which was undoubtedly fueled by an almost feverish anticipation from fans after his seven-year absence.
