Wyld Stallyns couldnt drag you away from this MOST EXCELLENT COLLECTION!
From the past to the future, and to Hell and back… witness the triumphant travels of historys most significant slackers Bill & Ted, in a bodacious, two-film Blu-ray set thatll have you tuning up your air guitar for a stellar solo!
Bill & Teds Excellent Adventure finds our non-heinous heroes (Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves) in danger of flunking History: a most odious proposition! But when the righteous Rufus (George Carlin) arrives in a time-traveling phone booth, the dense dudes discover their destiny… and call on the pasts biggest names for help!
In Bill & Teds Bogus Journey, the titular time travelers arent making history: they are history! When an evil-doer from the future sends eviller robot twins of Bill & Ted to assassinate and replace good, non-robot Bill & Ted, the guys wind up face to face with the Grim Reaper (William Sadler)! Can the now-dead duo escape, defeat their evil doppelgangers, and win their Battle of the Bands contest?
Shout Factory have basically become the last bastion for quality catalog releases, especially now that major studios are resorting to MOD (manufacture on demand) BD-Rs and digital-only futures. Theyve really stepped up their game in the last year, too, and with the release of Bill & Teds Most Excellent Collection (which wholly lives up to its name, by the way) they apparently dont have the intention of stopping anytime soon. The A/V presentation is better than expected, even for Bogus Journey. And supplements? Not only are most, if not all of the old extras accounted for, but Shout went to great lengths to produce a good deal of their own. This is one of the easiest ratings Ive given to a release in a while: Highly Recommended. --DVD Talk, September 20, 2016

Direct from Shout Factory (mostly to get the Limited Edition Poster and Rufus Figure)
at first i thought i over payed until i received a funky shaped box in the mail
forget the Shout Factory Exclusive gimmicks aside
The 3 Disc set is simply amazing and a must own for any/all fans
Even if you are not into Psychical media (Blu-Ray, etc.)
Get this sets it's the BEST Shout Factory non Horror Special edition they have ever put out it's simply flawless and close to perfect
My three biggest gripes with this set No deleted scenes or even workprint footage
According to Alex Winter and the director there a good amount of cut footage but, it's locked up somewhere which is strange since in the early days of the Internet a couple of dozen workprint cuts of films got out there and wound up in the wild
But, the two Bill and Ted workprint cuts never seen the light of day,
No original music videos for either film are in the set) Which is a real shame
missing promo/music videos of
Extreme "Play with Me"
Vital Signs "The Boys and The Girls are doing It"
Slaughter "Shout It Out"
Kiss "God Gave Rock and Roll to you II"
Also the Original Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure soundtrack was not re-issued/re-mastered for this Collection
The original soundtrack is really awesome and deserves a fully remastered release maybe when the film hit's the 30th Anniversary will see that
My review of the cd is on Amazon! Get it
it's super dirt cheap now
The set is also region locked (A) which sucks for people in the other region territories
Disc One is Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is actually in Letterbox
it looks better then it's ever looked (Is this the same print used in the previous MGM Nov 13, 2012 Blu-Ray?) That i have no idea i have the original MGM release but, never even cracked it open if it's a port from that then MGM for once did a very impressive job with a back catalog title
The audio is presented in two options
DTS HD 5.1
2.0 (Which might be the closest thing to the original theatrical version)
The DTS 5.1 sounds perfect But, I'm a sucker for that audio format
If you have a home theater system you'll pick up on lots more sounds and background noise
the first movie also gives you two different audio commentaries
Commentary for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure with Star Alex Winter and Producer Scott Kroopf
Commentary for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure with Writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon
Both new and exclusive to the Shout Select brand
Disc Two is Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey
This is the first time the sequel has been put onto blu-ray
with the same two audio options
DTS HD 5.1
along with two new exclusive audio commentaries
Commentary for Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey with Star Alex Winter and Producer Scott Kroopf
Commentary for Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey with Writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon
Was able to watch the second disc PQ is really nice (This is the best I'm sure the film will look in my life time) Unless MGM actually scans and restore it in 4K I don't see that happening anytime soon
One strange thing about Bogus Journey it's in full frame unlike Excellent Adventure which is in Letterbox
Not a massive deal but, if you do a marathon and jump from the first film to the sequel it's a bit jarring and takes a few min. for your brain to process this.... Or maybe I'm just crazy??
**New** Time Flies When you are having Fun!
A look back at a must excellent Adventure
This is worth the price of the blu-ray set it's a hour long Documentary on Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
(If you are a fan of recent Horror themed documentaries: More Brains, Crystal Lake Memories,Never Sleep Again, & Just Deserts,
You'll love this it's a great interesting Doc. with everyone minus
J. Patrick McNamara (Bill's Dad)
Bernie Casey (Mr. Ryan)
The two actresses that play the princesses
RIP George Carlin (Rufus) (1937–2008)
RIP Robert Barron (Abraham Lincoln) (1932–2000)
Everyone else is in and it's interested and very enjoyable
**New** Bill and Ted Go to Hell- Revisiting A Bogus Journey which is another 60minute documentary it's much like the first one awesome
very interesting and fun look back at Bogus Journey
a few original special features ported over from the now out of Print Bill and Ted dvd Collection then ported over to the original MGM blu-ray (Which was lack luster to say the least)
***Original extras are in SD so the footage is a bit jarring
The Original Bill & Ted - In Conversation with Chris & Ed,
Air Guitar Tutorial with Bjorn Turoque & The Rockness Monster ,
Overall this is the Complete Bill and Ted Set worthy to add to any collection
It's missing the terrible live action FOX sitcom and the animated series But, for know it's still complete
If you love both films i highly recommend getting both soundtracks or at least the first one
If you love Bill and Ted get this set it's a real must have 10/10
I've watched almost everything on each disc This is in fact a rare case when the title of the product lives up to what it is
The set is what every die hard Bill and Ted fan has wanted over the last 25 years it's close to flawless
the 4 Audio Commentaries are all solid and enjoyable
The 3rd Disc does not have English speaking subtitles which sucks (I'm a little surprised by this since both films have subtitles)
This is a shame both Documentaries on disc three are so enjoyable and fun not sure why they don't have subtitles
The movie looks really good on blu-ray, I really only have the times when it was on TV to compare the quality to, but for just an older movie in general it is a very nice master of it, the sound quality is also great. Overall this is a great Steelbook for the movie and I recommend it.
I am not much at rating films, but I think this movie is worth watching again if you have seen it before.
If you haven't seen it, I believe you will enjoy it when you do.
