Today was my oldest son's 12th birthday ...
Happy Birthday Josh Jr.
the original Karate Kid (starring Ralph Macchio ... with Elisabeth Shue as the love interest). It was fun to watch with my son and see his reactions to a film that was pretty cool back in my day.
But the ending left me asking "WHAT?!"
What happened to the scene in the parking lot with the evil Sensei who berates the Cobra Kai from his dojo only to be stopped short of doing something terrible by, none other than, Mr Miyagi?!
Did I just imagine that ending?! Or did we get some crappy copy of the movie that cut out what ended up being my favorite part?!
|The "birthday" |
My wife said that she thinks that is the opening scene in the second movie ... which might be true ... but darnit if that wasn't the "cool ending" I had kinda been prepping Josh Jr for during our watching of this film. And then when it just ended I was appalled ... and I'm afraid I ruined the "happy ending" for my son by shouting at the TV saying "Where's the rest?!"
