Taraji knows Karate

06.03.2009

I caught the MTV Movie Awards (or as I like to call it, the day I stopped thinking Andy Samberg was funny) on re-runs late the other night. And I swear, the only thing that I came away with, apart from that those HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL kids actually think that MTV Movie Awards mean something, was that Tajari P. Henson is freaking cute. So I'm down with whatever this chick is doing now. Which happens to be playing Jaden Smith's mom in the remake of THE KARATE KID. Jackie Chan, of course, is playing the Mr. Miyagi role, now renamed "Mr. Han".

I'm usually all alone in my opinions so I'll assume I'm the only one who thinks that this is gonna be a complete train-wreck, even with the usually very savvy Will Smith producing.
Extra Tidbit: Oh god, I forgot Henson played that annoying lesbian sharp shooter in SMOKIN' ACES...

lol

Karate Kid was a good movie if you were a pre-teen in the 80's when you first saw it. If you were to watch it now, for the first time, almost EVERYBODY would think that it sucks. Really people, it's nice to get all nostalgic about the things that we grew up with because, at the time, we didn't really know better. Get a grip, lol. And another thing. Nobody complained about Iron man, Spider-man 1, Day of the Dead, Get carter, Pelham 123, or Transformers before they came out and all of them are

Seriously, as long as there aren't too many of the same genre out at the same time, if it's a good movie, who cares?

remake whatever you want

That fat womanizer is right. You've got to stop whining about remakes and just think of them like another production of a play. If you still want to be a snob try saying classy things like, "Oh, the best production of Karate Kid was in the 80s, I didn't appreciate Will Smith's run of it, but God bless him for trying. Long live Broadway."

Don't Do It!!!

I don't believe kids today would think the Karate Kid sucked. If that was the case then why are they remaking it? Think before you write sir. Seriously, some remakes have been good, but you can't remake the Karate Kid. That is blasphemy.

whining old folks

all the schmoes lamenting over remakes like my grandmother. I grew up with the Karate Kid too and loved it. But I bet that any kid nowadays finds it lame. So let them have their kungfu kid and stop whining already. The last ten joblo news were about remakes. That is just how it goes since years and years. And for your information: a LOT of movies you saw and loved twenty years ago were actually REMAKES from movies you don't even know! And you still have the option to NOT see it!!! Man this

It's Kung Fu..

I'm not that sensitive, but it really pisses me off that this movie is still being called The Karate Kid (Japanese) when the movie is about Kung-Fu and takes place in China.

I don't care if a Korean plays a Japanese character but I do care if there's misinfomation going on. It's 2009, the day of digital info. What's going on here?

This movie WILL suck. And by the way, they've changed the title to THE KUNG FU KID. Seeing as it'll take place in China, and Karate is Japanese.

Train wreck or not...

this movie is going to make big money. I'll probably wind up having to take a nephew or two.

No prob, I'll just picture Taraji's wild nude scenes from Baby Boy
