The Karate Kid

Movies That Make Us - Episode 118

Welcome to a September to Remember here at Movies that Make Us. With FanX just around the corner, we’re looking back at some of the classics of our generation and this week we discuss the 1984 film The Karate Kid.

It’s the story of a teenage boy and his single mom who move from New Jersey to Reseda, California and his struggles to fit in, finding love, and overcoming the local bullies. He learns karate from Mr. Miyagi, but he also learns about patience, kindness, all while waxing cars, painting fences, and sanding the fences. 

What are your thoughts on the film? Next week, we continue with our September to Remember with The Princess Bride.  As always, you can reach us at
