This is Your Childhood Taking a Crane-Kick to the Face




Noryuki “Pat” Morita was fifty-two years old when he starred as the aging but spry Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid with Ralph Macchio.




As of November 2013, Ralph Macchio, who starred in The Karate Kid as the young and initially ass-kickable Daniel Larusso, will be fifty-two years old.

We’ll repeat this for movie fans of a certain age: the Karate Kid will be fifty-two years old this year.




And this, movie fans of a certain age, is your childhood (left) taking a crane-kick to the face. Look how sad it is.

    1. Hey, now, don't get mad at us. Get mad at Ralph Macchio for his obstinate refusal to stop aging.

  2. Damn you Ralph. You know Chuck Norris doesn't age, death fears him

    1. Very true. Leading scientists theorize that Chuck Norris's blood reverses the effects of aging . . . but they don't know for sure because Chuck Norris doesn't bleed.
