Okay...so I was going to see this tonight, but I'm in the field right now and I have to get up at 5:30 and the local theater moved this movie to a later time slot so it could add Toy Story 3 to the lineup, and that meant too late a night for me, so I'll see later and review it then. But it's definitely on my list, since it promises to have Kung fu in it.
Which makes no sense, since the title is The Karate Kid, so I'm guessing the filmmakers are banking on the average American's inability to distinguish Kung fu from Karate, or China from Japan.
On the plus side, not going to the movies tonight meant I was able to catch The Powerpuff Girls on TV.
Where was I? Oh, yeah. The reviews are surprisingly good, considering it's a remake of a film that didn't need remade and which already burned out with excessive sequel-making. One way or the other, I guess I don't much care. I just want to see some Kung fu.
