Remaking Karate kid.. hmmm not sure on that

Chan as Mr Miyagi.. hmm scarily chan is `older` the Pat Morita was when he played Mr Miyagi.

Anyone else think they should live classics alone and stop remaking them?

Haven't seen them myself, but the thing about remakes is that everyone gets excited thinking that they are going to be good, good to see them updated. But when it finally comes out, everyone hates it and it gets slated because it isn't like the original. So as remakes are concerned, the originals should be left alone.

Oh look, Jackie Chan is in it. This movie is bound to reach perfection, he's an amazing actor with a great knowledge of picking great scripts.

No seriously, this sounds like utter crap.

How stupid.

If they keep remaking movies and keep producing these really really crappy monthly/semi-monthly teen slasher/horror flicks...there's going to be NO point in seeing movies anymore.

Maybe it'll appeal to a new set of fans, but as for those who saw it the first time round I think....

Jackie Chan, what are you doing to us? :eek: The Forbidden Kingdom was so bad too... Don't care about Karate Kid, I miss Chan's classics!

I don't understand the need to keep re-making these older movies though, really. I mean, there are plenty of plotlines they could use for new movies. Plenty of real-life stories they could showcase..plenty of BOOKS even that could be made into movies.

It's lazy to keep re-making.

Welcome to the current world of reboots.

I say don't support them.

I'd cry. Karate kid was good enough, Jackie Chan would be better off in serious Chinese martial arts movies.

In theory, I support the remake of classic movies that despite being good, were very limited because of the technology of the time. An example being Clash of the Titans. If done properly (of course), this movie can be absolutely mind blowing today, I'm talking Lord of the Rings epic.

Of course this isn't the case for most of the remakes out there, who basically just want to adapt the classics for today's blockbuster audience - whatever those classics are, even movies that were PERFECT in their day and needed nothing more. This I don't understand and it makes me mad!
