If you’re looking for some inspiration to get pumped up for your next arm wrestling match, look no further than the 1987 Sylvester Stallone classic Over the Top . Yeah, it’s an entire movie dedicated to arm wrestling. How cool is that? Stallone plays a struggling trucker named Lincoln Hawk who arm wrestles on the side to make extra money. After the death of his wife, he tries to make amends with his son who he left behind years earlier. Upon their first meeting, his son doesn’t think too highly of Hawk. But over the course of the film, he warms up to his dad, and they form a great father-son relationship. Arm wrestling and a touching father-son story. What more can you ask for in a movie?
Lennon wasn't somebody who would back off. "He wanted me to be part of the group," Ono later said. "He created the group, so he thought the others should accept that. I didn't particularly want to be part of them." Instead, Ono made her own recordings with Lennon, such as the notorious Two Virgins – an album of experimental electronic music that bore nude photos of the couple. If some found Lennon and Ono's collaborations indulgent or farcical, McCartney realized that Ono emboldened Lennon. "In fact, she wanted more," he said. "Do it more, do it double, be more daring, take all your clothes off. She always pushed him, which he liked. Nobody had ever pushed him like that." But McCartney probably also understood the true meaning of a record like Two Virgins : That John Lennon had an unstoppable will that, unchecked, could redeem or destroy his life, or could undo the Beatles. When the group learned that Lennon and Ono had started using heroin, the Beatles didn't know what to do about it. "This was a fairly big shocker for us," McCartney said, "because we all thought we were far-out boys, but we kind of understood that we'd never get quite that far-out."
