karate kid, my miyagi, daniel, back in theaters

UPDATE: Winners have been selected. Congrats to Debbie D., Travis C., Crystal C., John C., and Elizabeth B.! Watch for our next give away!

been 35 years since Daniel-san crane-kicked his way into the hearts of Mr. Miyagi and moviegoers everywhere. So, as The Karate Kid enters its midlife crisis, it Waxes On with a new 4K Ultra HD Restoration and a return to movie theaters everywhere! On March 31 and April 2, the ’80s bully revenge classic will be back up on the big screen (you could never keep it down, even if you sweep the leg). Better yet, the theater experience offers a sneak preview for Season 2 of “Cobra Kai” (which, in our experience of covering entertainment for 15+ years, is the best reboot to a film EVER…and that is not hyperbole).

You can buy tickets at Fathom Events or any movie ticketer…or you could WIN A PAIR from us! We will have FIVE WINNERS! So, you have a great chance of winning. To enter, follow us on Twitter or Instagram or Like Us on Facebook along with a Karate Kid message so we know you want the tickets. Already a follower? Share this page on your own social media account (even as a repost of our message). Every effort gets an entry. Things you need to know? 1. Tickets are only available at AMC or Regal theaters, so be sure you have one near you that’s showing the film. 2. We pick the winner on March 22 and will need to secure the winner’s information to pass on to Fathom no later than Monday, March 25.

Get all caught up on what went on behind the scenes by checking out The Karate Kid page here at ’80s Movie Guide. You could spend your time trying to catch a fly with chopsticks…or you could enter now!

Yippee-Ki-Yay, We’ve Got DIE HARD 30th Anniversary Movie Tickets to Give Away!

DIE HARD, John McClane, Bruce Willis, Yippee-ki-yay

Congratulations to our winners! Robert Y. of Torrance, Calif.; Roger F. of Orlando, Fla.; Jim S. of Shadow Hills, Calif.; Andy G. of Plano, Texas; and Eff D. from Cincinnati, Ohio! Now, check out our next giveaway!

Is Die Hard the most action-packed Christmas movie ever made? Or the best summertime blockbuster set during Christmas? We’ve had 30 years to decide, but really, no debate should be final until you see the first cinematic adventure of John McClane (Bruce Willis) swing into Nakatomi Plaza on the big screen. And, ’80s Movie Guide is here to help!

On Sunday, Nov. 11, and Tuesday, Nov. 14, Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies present Die Hard as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics Series on more than 700 screens nationwide. TCM host Ben Mankiewicz will provide brand new commentary before and after the film to add perspective and insight. Then, you can move on to a new debate: is Hans Gruber the most real life frightening movie villain of all time?

We are giving away 5 pairs of tickets to the screening and location of your choice!! To enter to win, just interact with our social media @80sMovieGuide. You get an entry for every interaction, for example: Follow us (1 entry) and comment (1 entry) on Instagram, Like this Post on Facebook (1 entry), Like Our @80sMoviesGuide page on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter (1 entry), Retweet on Twitter (1 entry)…you get the idea! We will choose our FIVE WINNERS on Nov. 5 – enter now!

On both the 11th and 14th, Die Hard will play at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are available now at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
We will update the site with the names of the winners. After you enter, watch for us to reach out to you on the morning of the 6th. If we can’t reach the winner, we will choose another winner. Good luck and Yippee-ki-yay!
