The Karate Kid

The Karate Kid

Hassled by the school bullies, Daniel LaRusso has his share of adolescent woes. Luckily, his apartment building houses a resident martial arts master: Kesuke Miyagi, who agrees to train Daniel ... and ends up teaching him much more than self-defense. Armed with newfound confidence, skill and wisdom, Daniel ultimately faces off against his tormentors in this hugely popular classic underdog tale.

Daniel and his mother move from New Jersey to California. She has a wonderful new job, but Daniel quickly discovers that a dark haired Italian boy with a Jersey accent doesn't fit into the blond surfer crowd. Daniel manages to talk his way out of some fights, but he is finally cornered by several who belong to the same karate school. As Daniel is passing out from the beating he sees Miyagi, the elderly gardener leaps into the fray and save him by outfighting half a dozen teenagers. Miyagi and Daniel soon find out the real motivator behind the boys' violent attitude in the form of their karate teacher. Miyagi promises to teach Daniel karate and arranges a fight at the all-valley tournament some months off. When his training begins, Daniel doesn't understand what he is being shown. Miyagi seems more interested in having Daniel paint fences and wax cars than teaching him Karate. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Rachel H (br) wrote: A little too slow paced for me, but it was interesting in terms of the watching how the characters react to being trapped by their surroundings.

David C (de) wrote: Robert Benton, a man from Texas whose previous screen writing credits include "Bonnie and Clyde" (1967) and "Superman" (1978), had a very different and difficult task to achieve when he adapted the screenplay for "Kramer vs. Kramer." This is a story that, to tell correctly, demands perfect balance. The movie can lean to one Kramer's perspective, alternately Hoffman's character or Streep's, but it can never consign the other to a mere antagonist role: each has to be completely sympathetic and redeemable even when they are at their lowest or potentially in the wrong. The equation becomes more complicated when role-reversal is involved. If Hoffman's Kramer is any more or less capable a caregiver to their 7 year-old than Streep's Kramer, or if hers is any more or less driven to succeed in business than his, the balance and the film's message of equality become compromised. At the same time, if they are too perfectly malleable as characters they cease to be true-to-life and therefore lose their relevance as tools of social commentary; their clearly-delineated roles-a dissatisfied wife and a career-driven husband-are what determine the kinds of challenges each face, and their respective arcs remain linked to these initial identities even as they subvert their usual meanings and transcend their presumed limitations. Toward the end, Benton indulges in some overwrought courtroom theatrics ("OBJECTION!" "Overruled!"), and the resolution of the story is ultimately a bit of a cop-out, but it can be argued that these decisions also point to his wisdom as a screenwriter inasmuch as the film's message had already been conveyed and all that was left was to leave the audience as happy and entertained as they were (hopefully) enlightened. Aspiring screenwriters may find much to admire and emulate in Benton's delicate, unflinching, yet broadly accessible achievement.

Dan D (nl) wrote: Way better than either of the previous films. A better storyline that was deeply rooted in the original animated series and spectacular CG animation and action sequences. Just far more gripping and entertaining than the other two. Bay reigns in the stupid humor and not having Megan Fox around to permeate the film with her bitchiness really helped. And Optimus Prime is one of the great modern fictional characters. There, I said it.
