30 years ago today: ‘Karate Kid II’ showed us the Glory of Love

20 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, audiences were treated again to the utterly watchable pair of Daniel and Mr. Miyagi. The Karate Kid, Part II opened in theaters on June 20, 1986. In the sequel, released two years after the original film, Daniel’s wax on, wax off early training days are behind him, and he’s impressively slicing through six blocks of ice. The boy and his mentor travel together to Mr. Miyagi’s home village in Okinawa, Japan.

Other notable June 20 happenings in pop culture history: • 1948: The Ed Sullivan Show — then titled Toast of the Town — premiered on CBS.

This quartet of acting talent is forced together to go off in search of Wilson’s kidnapped wife (TV’s Lili Simmons), jailcell grifter Purvis (David Arquette) and the Deputy Sheriff (Evan Jonigkeit). They’ve been taken, we are told, by a primitive, violent tribe of native Americans known as troglodytes.

It’s safe to say that writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s Bone Tomahawk is trading more on its »

One of the fun things about loving a particular medium is the aspect of things being recommended, and this is something which has really grown in prominence for me with the growth of social media and podcasts.
