    Over the Top

    ★½

    I can't decide what's the most inept part of this movie:

    1)The fact that the theme song by Kenny Loggins is "Meet Me Half Way," but the whole message of the movie, repeated at least four times, is that the world meets no one half way.

    Or

    2)No one can decide what Stallone's name is. Most of the characters call him Lincoln Hawk (and that's what his truck says too) but a bunch call him Lincoln HawkS. You'd think they could fix this pretty easily in post; they did not. C'mon guys, meet me half way here.

    ★★★½

    Had no fucking idea what was going on and didn't particularly care. There are like 600 close-ups of Charlize Theron's face, and every one of them is a goddamn work of art, plus the stairwell sequence is an instant classic all-time great action scene that will be talked about forever.

    Every ticket to INHERENT VICE should come with the choice of a joint or a second ticket to INHERENT VICE. You will need one or the other.
