‘You think you can rely on that crane crap again?’ Well said, faceless stock baddie! The main thing that’s prevented us from ever doing more than tolerating The Karate Kid is, well, the karate kid. Adolescent actors are so often as annoying as or worse than child stars, and this guy’s up there with the biggest knobs in the business. Thus, we can’t really condone any rooting for the insufferable whelp, Miyagi or no Miyagi. Anyhow, the bloke whose karate school they put out of business in the last one gets a new bloke in to fight the kid and, well, guess how it all turns out. The box office for this third and last outing was flimsy to shite, so the cast probably shouldn’t expect any royalty cheques through the door anytime soon, though they might want to peep through their letterbox in case Justin Lee Collins is storming up their drive with ironic reunion funnies in mind.
Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Second part of this, where our hero moves slightly more towards the mainstream and starts penning film soundtracks, including the likes of Flashdance and Top Gun, plus of course The Never Ending Story which means we get to enjoy Limahl nestling alongside the rest of the heavyweight contributors, plus another film where his soundtrack is probably about a hundred times more famous now than the actual film. It’s the title of this programme, for a start.
