That is why ALL remakes exist.

That's not necessarily true,  The Fly, Ben Hur and The Maltese Falcon were remakes of other films and ended up being superior to the originals and from what I read, Romero's original version of The Crazies was among his least critically received and least successful films.

Three exceptions doesn't make up for the thousands of bad remakes that have been made over the many years.

Burn, it is becoming apparent that missing the forest looking at the tree is evidently becoming an epidemic around here lately.LOL

All in all from Karate Kid the best is first movie I think.
There are some funny things if we look it nowadays but still this is very great movie.

Of course the first movie will always be the best. And yeah, anything from 30 years ago is going to be considered dated by today standards, but that doesn't mean the movie needed all the sequels and remakes that it did.

I think one of the things we have all come to really despise about Hollywood in recent years is the "milk anything successful for every penny you can get out of it" syndrome. I give Steven Spielberg a lot of credit for resisting both temptation and a lot of pressure to do a sequel to E.T. Just because a movie comes out that we fall in love with for whatever reason doesn't mean we need to return to the universe of those characters and that story 4 or 5 more times. Sometimes, I'd just like to watch that particular movie again and appreciate it for whatever qualities I found in it the first time.

Yes, thank goodness Spielberg has yet to give into making an "ET" sequel. Seriously, what are they going to do, have the little guy get lost on Earth again, and befriend the now 30-something year old Elliott? UGH!!! Next thing you know, Coppla will be making a modern day remake of "Godfather".

You can also include Shyamalan -- He was pressured to make a Sixth Sense sequel, but he and Haley Joel Osment were against the idea...

Oh, you mean the guy who is the laughing stock of the movie business, and is rumored to be making an "Unbreakable" sequel ten years after the original? 

Didn't we already debunk the whole "Shyamamalan is the next Spielberg" theory?

But this remake offers nothing we haven't already seen from the first 4 movies that came before it.

While it was an avid attempt to bring forward a young growing actor in Jaden, but Mr. Myagi (did I spell that right?) being replaced by Jackie Chan just simply didn't work.  

Should've been a Razzie "winner" for 2010 in my opinion!
