Some days I lament moving away from Austin. On those days, I normally go eat at Whataburger and In-n-Out since Tucson has both, and I laugh and laugh. Still, this is a mild concession compared to missing out on the Alamo Drafthouse, the Highball, or Saturday Afternoon Jello Wrestling Hosted By Neil Miller at Reject HQ.

But some days, I breathe a sigh of relief. For it is also in Austin that a man has decided to launch his protest against remakes.

According to the always-stellar Jette Kernion over at Cinematical, Jacob Walinski has had it up to the neck with remakes and the recent incarnation of Karate Kid is the last straw. He plans to boycott the film in a show of solidarity against remakes of all kinds on Friday, 7pm, outside the Regal Gateway.

Fortunately for everyone involved, he sent a press release:

Together we can demand original stories. Together we can demand good plot lines. Together we can stand up and say we do not support remakes and reboots.”

We all realize that this isn’t the thing most worthy of protesting, and we all realize that it’s trivial and silly, but would you take up your placard and join him?

Based on the number of people that joined the slightly mis-named 1,000,000 Strong Against the “Karate Kid” Remake facebook page, I’d guess that you wouldn’t.

But I’ve been wrong before. If you do decide you want in, might I suggest a Nude Sit-In?

Plus, if you get bored of protesting, they have movies inside! Bonus.

Well, would you?
