Movie Night

I am watching the hit movie “Over The Top” as I type this. In case you haven’t seen it before, the movie is about pretty much the greatest arm wrestler in the word, who is played by Sylvester Stallone. Sylvester Stallone also drives a big truck in the movie and his son goes everywhere with him for some reason. Sylvester Stallone even lets his son drive the truck in one scene. Talk about a super dad. Right now Sylvester Stallone is teaching his son a hard life lesson by trying to talk some kid who is playing video games in a diner into arm wrestling his son. Sylvester Stallone’s son ends up losing the arm wrestling match the first go-round, but- after running outside and crying for a few minutes- he comes back inside, turns his baseball hat backwards to prove he is not messing around, and then beats the kid- who is much bigger than him, mind you- not once, but twice. Then Sylvester Stallone’s kid calls his mom on a payphone (the film is set in the ‘80’s) and tells her all about it. In this scene, she is lying in a hospital bed, which suggests she is going to die later. After the kid gets off the phone, Sylvester talks to her for a couple minutes and then we see in the background that some bad guys are kidnapping the kid. If they think they are going to get away with that they have got another thing coming. Sylvester Stallone is chasing them now in his truck. Something tells me he is about to get that kid back. Oh wait, yup, he did. And then the bad guys ran away. If you like great movies that have everything, you should totally see “Over The Top.”
