Best musing of Over the Top ever

Usually, Retrojunk.com is a toilet for bad trips on nostalgia with some really bad articles, but someone posted a could be serious, could be a joke letter of love to Sylvester Stallone's insatiable 1987 masterpiece of truck driving and arm wrestling. I dare myself to do a similar piece on Cobra, as praising Nighthawks would be too genuine as that was actually good.

FYI: the kid in this movie needed to be punched in the teeth.

Remember to meet this thread halfway!

Over the Top was painstakingly crafted so as to account for every detail and eliminate any plot holes or oversights. Having said that, after we, the viewer, are reminded, literally 10 times, that the Arm Wrestling World Championship tournament is double elimination, Lincoln's nemesis Bull Hurley is defeated once and loses the championship.

#7 During one of the documentary-style interviews with the arm wrestling contestants, Harry Bosco offers this Shakespearean monologue: "My whole body is an engine. (He holds up his arm) This is a fireplug, and I'm gonna light him up." I don't even know what that means but he still sounds threatening and awesome."
