It's terrible, but it's a fun terrible.
Amazingly, we haven't had a Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle yet, have we?
And speaking of vehicles, the one issue I want explored in Timecop is where does the stupid "rocket" car go when they go back in time and do they have to get back in it to go back forwards in time? Jean-Claude and Gloria Reuben jump back in time and appear over and fall into the tidal basin of the Potomac River near the Jefferson Memorial. No stupid car. When he comes back forwards in time, he hits a button and walks through the ripple in space, the next scene he's driving back into the future through one of those ripples in the stupid car.
Ron Silver is terrifically bad in this movie, especially when he's sharing screen time with himself.
When the future Jean-Claude talks to Mia Sara in the mall, why does she ask him, "Who are you?" I mean, shit, it's her husband and he looks a little older, but he doesn't look like a different person.
Another fave scene is the dramatic turn when Jean-Claude discovers through a monumentally improbable coincidence his wife's vial of blood behind Gloria Reubens' blood in the hospital. When he furrows his brow a tiny bit and drops the other vial, I'm thinking an Academy Award must be in his future. Then as he fondles the vial, I half expected him to open it up and drink it.
That's all from me.
Thanks for the great podcast!
