A-Z Challenge! K is for......

Today is day 11 and that's K! The first movie that popped into my head is a double pointer (That's a Scattergories reference, if you needed an explanation!)

Karate Kid!

We watched this movie at least a thousand times when we were kids. Me and my brothers imitated the moves--of course, on each other. We knew them all! You can't help but root for Daniel Larruso. Everybody loves an under dog! And I adored the love story, of course :)

Over all, great movie. I remember the sequel...but the 3rd one....can't remember if I ever saw it. And the one with the girl (her name is completely escaping me at the moment), never saw it. And I've yet to see the remake with Jaden Smith, but I'm sure it pales in comparison.


  1. That's a great movie! Kids still love the classic version. :)

  2. My kids (now grown and flown the nest!) often used to talk about the Karate Kid - can't say I ever sat down and watched it myself, but they sure enjoyed it!

    Happy A-Z'ing! ;-)

    SueH I refuse to go quietly!

  3. I loved Karate Kid! Had a huge crush on Ralph Macchio. I saw the one with Jaden Smith. Cute movie, but it does pale in comparison to the original.
