Usually seeing a kidâ€™s opened cranium would be enough raise the ire of the Major Spoilers crew, but in the case of Locke & Key: Head Games #3, Bodeâ€™s open head is enough to convince his siblings, that something strange is afoot in Lovecraft.

This week Batman’s life hangs in the balance when he is poisoned by Chemo, who is under the control of the evil Brain. The Atom races to the rescue with Aquaman by shrinking down and entering Batman’s bloodstream. While Aquaman and the Atom battle the infection deep inside Batman’s body, Batman struggles to end Chemo’s rampage and defeat the Brain! This week’s teaser features Elongated Man and Plastic Man teaming up to derail a bank heist and capture the criminal Baby Face.
The Brain Trusts in H’wood are at it again announcing a remake to the most awesome Karate Kid movie from 1984.Â Now I love’s me the original movie, as I try convince the wife we need to watch it at least once a year (I think I have a secret Elizabeth Shue in a tight sweater complex).Â I was okay withÂ The Next Karate Kid as it wasn’t a remake of the original, and featured hottie Hillary Swank in a tight sweater.
But remaking the classic Ralph Macchio/Pat Morita film just because the Brain Trusts can come up with an original idea simply sucks.Â Ralph Macchio has finally aged, so bringing him back as the young lad who gets beat up on is out of the question, so the Brain Trusts are tapping Will Smith’s son Jaden for the part.Â The only bright shining moment for this remake is the announcement that Jackie Chan is being courted to play the role of the zen master of karate – Mr. Miyagi.
I mentioned this remake to my wife last night, and knowing she isn’t the biggest fan of the movie, made the surprise comment of the week when she said, “This is our movie from our time.Â Why would they remake this?”
The remake could begin shooting this year in Beijing.
