    Any chance of a DVD re-release for The Karate Kid trilogy ?

    I love these movies, no matter how cheesy they may be !

    The first DVD releases were a disappointment, with the original film being fullscreen only (correct me if I'm wrong) with 2 and 3 coming widescreen.

    I waited awhile on these, hoping for
    a) a widescreen copy of the original
    b) a nice little boxset
    -- I'd even buy a 4 pack with "The Next" aka part 4 if it got me the first 3

    Anyway, they are now out of print and I'm wondering if any of the DVD website hounds 'round here have seen any announcements or rumors of late ?

    I've not read anything about those films receiving any sort of new release.

    I'll be damned. The DVD database comes through again.

    But they're not going to include the film with the female kid? An outrage for sure!

    Most fans consider the 4th film an outrage. So no suprise if it's left out. That or the small ammount of info that's out there isn't totally accurate. We'll see.

    Oh Binks, you just made me so happy ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Even better news now that I watched a set of:
    The Karate Kid full frame previously viewed
    Karate Kid II factory sealed widescreen
    Karate Kid III factory sealed widescreen

    just go for 97 dollars on eBay.

    Binks, I'm a hardcore TKK fan and I can't say I consider 4 an outrage but that's only because I've never seen the whole movie, at least not that I can remember. However, I remember not liking the idea of doing a 4th from the get-go. Then again, some other fans hated 3 and thought THAT one should have never been made, either.

    Myself, I loved part 3 even though it's the weakest of the series. Martin Kove as Kreese was a real pleasure to have back full time and I can't say enough about Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver.

    KH, what can I say, I love these movies. Full House was more of a joke to me than anything but as a kid I seriously loved TKK 1-3 and I still remember going to see part 3 in the theater way back in 1989 when I was around 11.
