    I predict a rather huge flop actually.
    I am a martial arts fan and a Jackie Chan fan, but this is one I will be waiting to come out on DVD... Heard alot of bad about it already, I am passing.

    I was watching the Karate Kid on TV today as well. Love that movie. Honestly, I kind of wish they weren't remaking it. I say leave a classic alone. I don't know if I will be able to keep myself from going to see it though. Unless it gets absolutely horrible reviews, which it probably will...

    should it not be the Kung Fu Kid?

    Yeah, but in one of the reviews that I read, the tough kids that rough up Jaden Smith's character, use it as an insult after their first confrontation. Jaden takes a fighting stance (YMCA karate or something) and all of the the Kung-Fu kids shout "Hey, look, it's the Karate Kid". I suppose it was their way of letting people know it was a remake while keeping the same title, yet changing the background and training.

    If this movie gets one person in the door to change their life with the martial arts, it will be successful in my book. Can't wait for the movie to come out, it's a bigger picture here folks.

    Took my stepdaughter to go see it (she's 10) and she loved it. I really enjoyed it as well. it was different enough that you weren't trying to compare it too much to the original. About the only thing the same was the overall plot line.

    Good philosophical message same as the first.

    I loved it! Jaden Smith is a very good actor and it was really cool to see Jackie Chan acting the drama scenes. All in all, I really enjoyed it.

    Very good movie! Fight scenes were very good, but, then again, it has Jackie Chan in it.

    So for the school owners out there has the movie had an impact on people inquiring about your school?

    How many school owners did events at the movie theaters?

    We're opening a new club here in LaGrange in two weeks. I haven't seen a measurable impact in enrollment yet that can be attributed to the movie, but several of my students have seen the movie and really enjoyed it. At the very least it may build excitement for the new club. Perhaps some who saw the film and liked it will stop by and consider enrolling in our classes when they see or hear about it.

    Best of luck with opening the new school.

    The owner of our school organized a field trip. About 55 kids and parents from our school attended a reserved showing; along with about 35 students and parents from a school up the street.

    An unusual thing was a coordinated display with a third school from near by. This third school had a table set up in the lobby; with instructors and students solicating moviegoers. The theater chain had printed up promotional posters with that school's logo and name ~ so, it appears to have been a planned promotion.

    An good example of finding good advertising where you can, when you can. A school should not pass these up either with a set up like that or with a demo or SOMETHING.

    We had a table set up in the theatre for cheap night, and it was the first time the movie theatre here had ever had anyone in, they like what we were doing so we are now doing the opeing of the Last Airbender next week which has the potential to be an even bigger movie than the Karate Kid

    That's great, Rob. What are the early results from your presence at the Karate Kid?

    Have signed one new person so far, and have a couple more potentials. The problem with have a table on cheap night is you see a lot of the cheap people who don't want to pay for lessons for their kid.

    We will be doing opening night fo the last air bender so that is a different crowd so that might get us a few more bodies. I will get Arizona Angel to posts some pics from the movie theatre night
