So I was watching ‘Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey’ on TV today. I had almost forgotten how much I love that movie. I really feel that they successfully built on the first film and made something greater than it could have been. Â How do you top a time travel story? Send your heroes through not only time but heaven and hell as well. Â Here are some reasons I love this film
– Granny S. Preston Esquire- Alex Winter as his own grandmother in Hell. Â Scary.
– Music- Primus has a cameo in the movie as does the guitarist from Faith No More. And it ends with a cheesy Kiss song.
– The Reaper- William Sadler as The Grim Reaper. A great comic performance.
– Closing Credits- A montage of newspaper and magazine covers over the end credits tell you the future of Wyld Stallyns.
– George Carlin- Reprising his role as Rufus from the first film. Â I love George Carlin.
– “We were totally lied to by our album covers!”- This line always made me laugh.
