"Where we're going, we don't need scientific accuracy," is a line someone should have uttered in the subject of this week's podcast, 1994's "Timecop," a movie that explains time travel by way of Jean-Claude Van Damme's mullet and windowless cars that resemble fast-moving garbage.
Yes, we're tackling Tony's pick, and by "tackling" we mean "beating to a bloody pulp." Among the topics discussed are: the JCVD school of acting, jokes that aren't jokes, unsettling nudity, high kicks & high splits, and how "Timecop" -- despite all its shortcomings -- somehow managed to predict a Trump presidency. (Why isn't that last point making headlines?! Oh, right. Because this movie is terrible.)
Tune in next week for Tim's pick, '90s teen witch revenge drama "The Craft," starring Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, Rachel True, Skeet Ulrich, and all the candles available within the greater Los Angeles area.
