THE KARATE KID---Sony pictures is developing a remake of the 1984 movie and is looking for a 17 year-old actor who can speak English and Mandarin to play a character named Li. Set in Brooklyn, Li has to deal with a tragedy that has come between him and his mother. He meets a high school classmate, Mia, and her father, which leads to resurrecting his Kung Fu career.





PREY---the PREDATOR prequel had Hulu's biggest premiere ever.





GREEN LANTERN---HBO Max said the DC superhero tv series is, "very much alive.", but the STRANGE ADVENTURES tv series about lesser DC superheroes has been cancelled.

WILL TRENT---Ramon Rodriguez will star in the ABC tv series based on the novel series.

ROAD TRIP---Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan will star in this untitled lesbian road trip movie directed by Ethan Coen.

BOOK OF MARLAN---Starz comedy tv series about a fictional version of Marlan Wayans.

TRIVIA---in one of THE NAKED GUN's funniest scenes, Lt. Frank Drebin has returned from his vacation in dangerous Beirut in order to forget about his wife, Victoria, who has left him for another man. Riding with Capt. Ed Hocken, Drebin says it is difficult to forget Victoria because he sees things everywhere that remind him of her---just as they pass two massive concrete domes.
In reality, the two concrete domes are two containment domes for the closed San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station near San Clemente, California, which are scheduled to be demolished by 2026.

Thanks, Dragon!

So, Mandarin-fluent, Kung Fu = Karate?

Bad enough that Cobra Kai involves a Tang Soo Do instructor referred to as "Sensei" and the school is a "Dojo".

Mmmmkay....

What made the original special was the fact some white kid from the Newark New Jersey learns not only Karate for self defense but about a new culture and learns to embrace it. That's the whole essence of the movie and the sequel!

Didn't we already HAVE a Karate Kid remake in 2010? I was really good, too.

Excellent point! It was also about self-discovery and self-improvement.

I'm sure I sound like some "Cliff Clavin" know-it-all when it comes to the techniques and terminology in these films, but criminy! And, I realize that most folks couldn't care less about whether or not the filmmakers call it correctly.
But Karate Kid learns Kung Fu? Why not Kung Fu Kid?
Karate came from Kung Fu, so perhaps they could depict it as the kid learning about that part of the origin of Karate.

Good point. Weird they even went out of their way to get the Karate Kid license from DC.

Yeah, all these new versions, remakes, what have you; keeping the same name for each one.
When everyone's The Karate Kid, no one is The Karate Kid.

Prey is the most overrated movie since Black Panther.

Best Predator film after the first one my ass.

Great point about Kung fu for Karate Kid. I guess no one noticed or cared because this is what the 80s was all about. Which then brings this point, how will a remake fit for today’s standards? Just leave the original alone. The new remake sucked so how will they figure this one won’t either. Cobra Kai is serving fans from the 80s nostalgia. People who did not notice the difference between karate and Kung fu. Why do we need another remake?

I just hate it that they take an opportunity to make a great film about the real thing and they trash it, basically.
The first Ip Man film was great. Donnie Yen has incredible skills. Sure, there was lots of artistic license, but there was some authenticity as well.
And I know these movies aren't about martial arts, but the personal stories, human drama, etc.

And I'm (somewhat) serious - why not The Kung Fu Kid?

Certainly no reason for a remake and the sequels started to sputter after the second film in the series.
It again was "lightning in the bottle". It was unique for its time and well done. You really can't recapture the moment. You know why the 80's were so great? Because they made original stuff. (Karate Kid, Ghostbusters, Predator, Wargames, etc, etc.) Sure there were a few sequels, but even sequels in the 80's were great! Speaking of which, wheres the Wargames remake? That almost seems in vogue again right now. LMAO!
