    The Karate Kid may be my favorite movie of all time. When I was growing up in rural south GA, my dad won passes to the premiere of the film in a radio call in contest. My little brother and I attended the movie and immediately fell in love with it. A few years later when we had it on on VHS, we spent an entire summer starting each morning with a viewing (followed by a viewing of Revenge of the Nerds.) Recently, I found out about this one good thing: http://nypost.com/2017/08/04/karate-kid-gets-web-reboot-starring-macchio-zabka/

      I’m not going to lie. Just re-watched Karate Kid 3, and it’s a little rough around the edges. Otherwise, my stance on Ralph Macchio is that he is still a good thing! #staygold #ponyboy

        I choose to eliminate the 3rd chapter from canon. And the sequel isn’t something to crow about. But when I have the good fortune to randomly catch the original karate kid on my over the air antenna I am compelled to watch it in its entirety. When I do I am rewarded with a rush of optimism that never diminishes. The 3rd movie is bad. The good feeling is something I need right now. Your s e hinton references aren’t lost on me. Another great movie with an epic cast…
