The Karate Kid, Part III ★★★

It's not great, it has the same flaws of the first two (slow tempo, 80s cheese, etc), but I love how unashamed cartoony this one is, with its black belt yuppie scum villain, who comes up with a way too elaborate scheme to avenge the honour of his brother. The ruthlessness of the villain trio makes the final fight extra exciting, while at the same time seeing Miyagi worry that he might lose his best friend to the dark side, was really heartbreaking.

And how cool is it to see a movie (and even one from the 80s!) in which the protagonist can be just friends with a hot girl!?
