The best part of Karate Kid is the warning at the start of the fight that says “you can’t hit above the shoulders”. Only for the star of the show to win the day with a flying kick to the head.

Sort of reminds me of Billy Slater being allowed to shoulder charge and get away with it.

Just watched Roma on Netflix.

Extraordinary film, the black and white cinematography just perfect. Touching film.

Getting a virtual concurrent cinema release here, had a three week cinema release in North America so as to qualify it for the Academy Awards, before hitting Netflix.

Billy modelled his defensive jumps for bombs on the Karate Kid

Hence his nickname Billy the Karate Kid

I was listening to a Chris Hardwick Podcast. Apparently there’s a new show out Cobra Kai, which is Danny and Johnny grown up and dealing with life after The Karate Kid. He was saying it’s good, and not like your typical reboot

Just watching the ads for Aquaman, Boxing Day release. I'm so over comic book movies.

Just watched Warrior on Fox. Man that movie hits me in the feels. I think Joel Edgerton is one of the most underrated actors going around

Cobra Kai is excellent, definitely worth a watch. Its on You Tube Premium though.

Just watched "Game Night". It was actually not too bad. Some nice twists.

Just watched "Stronger". I'd never heard of it, and it bombed at the box office. But it is a very good film. Made me cry to boot. Now on Fox Movies and Stan.

Jake Gyllrnhaal almost not recognisable. Maybe he's just getting old.

Just watched the next remake of A Star is Born. I don't know why they keep remaking it, when there was an almost perfect version in 1954. Lady Gaga should not be coming anywhere near any acting award. Bradley Cooper was by far the better of the two performances. I wish I'd waited to see it for (close to) free!

I thought the 1st half of the movie was good , 2nd half was trash.

Just finished watching Get Out.. pretty disappointed as it was basically a copy of The Skeleton Key.
