Karate Kid Remake

   Maybe it's just me, but I truly hate the fact that Hollywood seems to feel the need to remake movies. Of course there are a few exceptions such as the Magnificent Seven and Cape Fear, which are very rare. There are some remakes that are understandably remade such as the recent Clash of the Titans-modern movie advancements would lead you to believe that this would be a graphical improvement. On the other hand there are movies that should never be remade...such as Karate Kid.
   When a movie has such a surprisingly good story and great cast chemistry-you don't remake the movie. Listen Ralph Macchio made only one good movie...so why take that away by trying to improve it. Another thing that bugs me about this-Hollywood has some kind of arrogance for trying to make us believe that Jackie Chan will be a better Mr. Miyagi than Pay Morita. At the end of the day the Karate Kid remake will be another blunder in movie making judgment.

Kind of like "the Demand", right?

I would have to fully disagree, find me a movie that has to deal with a lawnmower negotiation and I'll jump on your train.
