kid of the 80's / Movies

You know you’re a kid of the 80’s when …

You see someone washing or polishing their car and you think to yourself “Wax on … Wax off!”

Wax on, Wax Off

The Karate Kid – an iconic movie about a boy who is forced to move to a new city because of his mom’s job. It’s a classic underdog movie where the shining light is the character of Mr Miagi (Pat Morita) who plays the mentor – teaching the bullied boy the art of karate in an unconventional manner.

The original Karate Kid movie was released in 1984 and spun off a couple of sequels as well as a remake (with Karate replaced by Kung Fu) in 2010.

Useless trivia: In the Jackie Chan remake of 2010 watch carefully to see Jackie pay homage to Mr Miagi as he waxes his car later in the film.
