Tuesday Twitter Talk: The Karate Kid.

Our weekly feature showing you how incisive and funny we can be in 140 characters. This week, Adam Serwer and the National Review Online's Dan Foster have a back-and-forth about the upcoming movie, The Karate Kid.

@AdamSerwer

So, anyone else bothered by the new "Karate Kid" movie taking place in China and utilizing Kung Fu? #nerdcomplaints

@DanFosterNRO

Sooooooo bothered. If they at least make a joke about it in the movie I can deal. Will Smith nepotism also bugs me.

@DanFosterNRO

Mama Foster used to use rolled up paper towel and blue magic marker to make me Daniel-san's rising sun headbands.

@AdamSerwer

yeah but I mean if you're the most bankable hollywood star on earth, how do you not try to turn that into a franchise?

@DanFosterNRO

I still get pins and needles during the whole "Show me, SAND THE FLOOR!" scene

@AdamSerwer

Yeah I have the trilogy on videocassette

@AdamSerwer

That movie made an entire generation of kids pine for a cryptic aging mentor

@DanFosterNRO

Setting me up for Reagan joke?
