This week on the Exciting & New podcast Jason Andy and Dana break down the 1984 Cobra Kai prequel film The Karate Kid. Jersey boy Ralph Macchio plays a bullied kid who’s lucky enough to live in the same apartment complex as Mr Miyagi (soft g, not hard g). Miyagi has tons of chores for our karate kid to work on that will miraculously translate directly to the karate mat. Elizabeth Shue joins in on the fun playing the insanely-too-hot-for-the-guy-even-by-Hollywood-standards love interest. Come for the karate. Stay for the mild anti Asian racism. Hey it was 80s. Enjoy the pod.
