The New ‘Karate Kid’ movie delivered OK scenes with an emotional ending. Columbia Pictures released their new “Karate Kid” remake movie into theaters this weekend, and while it got pretty positive reviews from the top movie critics, I just thought it was just ok. The scenes for the film were ok. I liked the emotional ending. They also added some different variations from the original movie,which made it sort of interesting,but overall,it was just ok for me. It stars: Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, and Taraji P. Henson.

The “Karate Kid” revolves around characters Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) and Mr. Han (Jackie Chan). If you’ve seen the original “Karate Kid” movie the script stays pretty much the same with slight variations. 12 year old Dre and his mom move to China from Detroit because apparently there was nothing left for them there. As soon as Dre arrives in town, he gets into it with a couple of Kung Fu bullies over a girl who plays the violin. Read more »

It stars: Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Sharlto Copley, Jessica Biel, Patrick Wilson, and Gerald McRane.

The “A-Team” revolved around characters Hannibal (Liam Neeson), Lt. “Faceman” Peck (Bradley Cooper), B.A. Baracus (Quinton “Rampage” Jackson),and Murdock (Sharlto Copley).
