Mr. Miyagi geography lesson

China here, Japan here, Okinawa here.

Did you notice Daniel is wearing a sweatshirt? Not so in the movie, this photo must have been taken during a scene rehearsal.

Badest bullies

Old School Cobra Kai

Not so Old School

This one was easy to decide, the point goes to the original Cobra Kai. How could it not? Granted in the new version there were more bullies, but you just can't compete with a bunch of bullies in skeleton costumes.

Plus, how scary can a bunch of bullies be in orange school uniforms?


Score is 5 - 3 for 1984.

Cutest girlfriend

Ali Mills

Mei Ying

This one is difficult, Mei Ying is as cute as you can get but Ali had it going on, especially when she answered the door on her date with Daniel. That scene is a school boy's dream come true (guys, you know what I mean.)

However, I'm going to give the point to Mei Ying. She was kind to Dre, told him the cute love story in the theatre followed up by a nice kiss, and only broke things off with him because her parents made her do it. Poor girl was put in such a tough situation.

Ali on the other hand had an attitude problem. So was so cold towards Daniel on the eve of the All Valley even after Daniel tried to apolgize. And what was up with telling Johnny she wasn't at war with him while they danced at the country club? Nevermind, don't get me started.

Point for 2010.


Score is now  4 - 3 for 1984, but 2010 is closing in.
