    I'm pretty sure it's one of those movies where you could walk up to any person in America and say a line from the movie and they would instantly know what movie you are talking about.

    "Wax on, wax off"
    "No mercy"
    "Sweep the leg Johnny" (which is actually the name of a band and a song)
    "Cobra Kai, never die"
    "Daniel-San"

    Or simply ask them to demonstrate a crane kick.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Sad to see Excalibur go. It was is pretty nostalgic film from my middle school years.
