TWO great movies!
on June 29, 2005
The other reviewer is relying on childhood memories of the two films. Excellent Adventure is a great film, and when the second film came out, it did not have the time machine and the historical dudes from the first movie, so it felt too different than the first. Not many people cared for it, but I have been showing these films to my nieces and nephews for years now and the complete consensus is that the second film is a better film than the first. The writing is just as good and the film moves along quite well.
The two films feel quite different, but this is a good thing. They did a time travel movie already, so they went on to something else. It works!
Bogus Journey is a very funny film that needs to have a second look by fans of the first. Just keep in mind that it is not about time travel and historical dead dudes.
I have both the original DVDs, but I am reordering this collection for the extras.
Extras on these discs include:
The Original Bill & Ted: In Conversation With Screenwriters: Chris Matheson & Ed Solomon
The Most Triumphant Making-Of Documentary
Score! An Interview With Guitarist Steve Vai
Hysterical Personages: Biographies of Nine Historical Dudes and One Babe Dressed as a Dude
One Sweet and Sour Chinese Adventure To-Go - Episode of the Cartoon
The Linguistic Stylings of Bill & Ted
And Radio Spots
