so, we all snuggled up on the couch to watch the 1984 “karate kid’ on thursday evening.
our kids all loved it! dusty & i thoroughly enjoyed re-living the 80’s movie. i was such a huge ‘elisabeth shue’ fan. especially after she starred in ‘adventures in babysitting’ & ‘cocktail’.
i was 8 years old, and dusty was 13 when the original movie was released. dusty was a great ‘ralph macchio’ look-alike back in the day. wink. wink.
on friday night we went to the movies to see the new ‘karate kid,’ and we all agreed between the two, it’s our favorite! however, you can’t really compare the two, the 1984 version will forever remain a classic.
for those of you who have not seen it yet, i will say, there is a totally funny, entertaining, kick-butt jackie chan scene, and jaden smith a.k.a. Dre Parker is tight & fierce.
