Bogus

May 9, 2011

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.  How do you top a time travel story? Send your heroes through not only time but heaven and hell as well.  Here are some reasons I love this film

– Granny S. Preston Esquire- Alex Winter as his own grandmother in Hell.  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.   I love George Carlin.

– “We were totally lied to by our album covers!”- This line always made me laugh.
