I mean what more can I really add that an entire messageboard dedicated to "The Karate Kid" hasn't already covered. 

Something I highly recommend for passionate fans of the movie is the Blu-ray.  The picture and sound are incredible and it adds a new feel to the classic.

Here's me having a little fun with my observations:

Did anyone ever notice all the pics on Ms. Larusso's fridge.. she was quite the cook by her breakfast spread, but she was apparently planning to make Daniel a Bunny Cake for his birthday.

Check out that scary orange clown on the armoire .. I warned you this was really a Halloween flick..   The Karate Kid - The Perfect Haloween Flick

If you had just been pounded on the beach the night before.. wouldn't you be a little more aware of your surroundings instead of knee juggling before soccer practice?

I love when Dutch is in the background mocking Daniel with an L when he is screaming "This school sucks, man!"

John Kreese is such a great villain!  Nothing like your own life size standee and a wall dedicated to your bad boy self at your place of business.

Did Daniel think that wearing the same orange collared t-shirt to school everyday was a fashion statement?  Especially, with that red sweatshirt.

Does it make you laugh when this happens.. "No," Daniel says, "it's a Miyagi Turbo, actually." However, Mr Miyagi has not yet fixed his bike, and Daniel barely knows him. 

I want one of those Bonsai trees!

I just spotted more Halloween decorations for the school dance.. I can't believe that "The Karate Kid" is not revered more as a Halloween horror classic.. Also, those slanted eyes on Mr. Miyagi Jack-o-lanterns are an awesome touch!

Shower 'Fungus' .. I finally get it!!  What goes around, comes around.

I still say those Cobra Kai skeleton costumes are way better than Jim Carrey's vampire costume that won grand prize in "Once Bitten".  

Notice the sign on the fence that says 'Help! Stop Vandalism' .. I think someone stole it during the night fight!

Apparently, Ali with an i is proud of the fact she is in Algebra II .. check out that binder.

"It must be take a worm for a walk week!" .. that's a good one.

The house across the street from Ali's parents have what appear to be large Bonsai trees.  

I actually visited the Golf N' Stuff from the movie and they still had the hockey game from "The Karate Kid" in a corner on display. Serious fun in the movie.. arcade games, bumper boats, go carts, trampoline, and photo booth.  

Let's face it.. Ali was the real soccer player in this movie.. she just schooled Daniel and blasted a shot by that shocked goalie.

Just realized that Daniel Larusso must have been the first guy to 'order the specials' with Elisabeth Shue around.

It is amazing to think that the studio originally wanted to cut the scene where Daniel finds Miyagi drunk and weeping over the death of his wife and child in the Manzanar Internment Camp. Luckily, director John G. Avildsen knew this scene was pivotal and it lead to Pat Morita later being nominated for an Academy Award.

One minute Daniel is feeling bad about being late to see his mom for his birthday.. but give a guy some wheels.. and it is Golf N' Stuff time instead.  Bonsai!!

Quick Golf N' Stuff arcade game list.. Pac Man, Galaga, Sega Baseball, Pole Position, Moon Patrol, pinball, and my fav hockey game again.

Hey.. check out all the guys getting off the waterslide trying to strut around and welcome Ali to the gun show.

Alright Daniel .. You're the best! Actually, that Daryl Vidal dude appeared rather talented to me.

Mock me again Dutch!  

Daniel Larusso's gonna fight?  What part of out of commision did you not understand?  Time to sweep the leg and get him a body bag!

Did some guy in the crowd just call Johnny a cream puff?

Was the Crane Technique to Johnny's face actually an illegal move?  Who cares that was sweet revenge!

Fist pump time Baby!!
