I might as well change the name of Dlisted to Trailerlisted for many reasons, but mostly because lately I’ve been posting trailer after trailer after trailer. Well, here’s another one to add to the trash heap, and this one is going to hurt. It’s the trailer for the re-doodoo of The Karate Kid starring Will Smith’s son Jaded (typo and it stays) in the Ralph Macchio role and Jackie Chan in the Pat Morita role.
Instead of a Japanese master, they gave us a Chinese one. And instead of learning Karate, Jaden learns Kung-Fu. Yet they kept the name “Karate Kid.” Yeah, more like The Confused Kid!
Mr. Miyagi is karate chopping in his grave right now! We need him to kick his way out of there and karate chop this damn trailer.
And just for the record, “jacket off, hang it up, jacket on” is so not the new “wax on, wax off.” However, “jacket and wax off” is.
