Karate Kid Trailer

Who's ready for Hollywood's latest pointless remake? We're really venturing into "raping my childhood" territory here as they unleash the re-make of The Karate Kid, starring Will Smith's kid as Daniel and Jackie Chan as Mr. Miyagi.

(OK, I will admit that their riff on the original film's "catching a fly with chopsticks" gag is kind of clever.)

Should we do the mocking that everyone else is doing online? Should we be the latest to mercilessly point out that karate is a JAPANESE martial art, but this entire re-make takes place in CHINA? But, that's right. The whole point of all these remakes is that the title is a "known brand name." If you change the name, people might think that it's something *gasp* original!

June 11, if anyone's interested.
