58. Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey

                STATION! You can always argue about sequels. Should they have been made? Which ones should be made? Do they improve on the original? Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey falls somewhere in the middle.  Right between shouldn’t have been made and its fun to watch these characters again.
          Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure was lighting in a bottle. A story that on paper that should have never worked at all ends up being amazing and hilarious. Not to mention Keanu Reeves best acting job ever.  Bogus Journey brings back our two favorite losers again. This time they are trying to be stopped from winning the battle of the bands and becoming the greatest band ever and the band that saves world and unites in perfect harmony.
                This movie is great for one thing. That is the grim reaper himself Death. Played by William Sadler (Shawshank, Green Mile) the Grim Reaper steals this entire movie (You have sunk my Battleship). In fact he is so funny he even outshines Bill and Ted themselves.  So funny. Then when you realize that Sadler has made a career at serious dramatic roles, you appreciate it even more! 

Final Verdict: Considering I got it for free, worth keeping.  


  1. I always did like William Sadler

  2. Dude!...EXCELLENT!! If it wasn't so funny it would be total stupid! wait...maybe that's why it is so funny!!! This movie is a continuation of the, "1 time watching is enuff for me", movie- Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Again, we follow Bill S. Preston, Esquire! and Ted "Theodore" Logan! as they try out for the battles of the bands, die, challenge the grim reaper, win and save the day by battling evil robots of themselves. WOW! But, the bestest part is the Grim Reaper! Amazingly funny. William Sadler does an awesome job in one of his few comedic roles. So if the first bill and ted made you laugh, this one will too...but watch out! there are talks in the making for a possible #3.

  3. I grew up on this movie. As a kid, both Journey movies and Waynes World rocked my world. I love the part where they are playing death in all those games. In my book this movie is what they might call a Cult Classic....
