Excerpt: Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves make a most triumphant return as the time-traveling best buds in Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third installment in a sci-fi buddy comedy written by original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and directed by Dean Parisot. Although it hits a few snags at the start, the movie eventually manages to come together and strike the perfect harmony for 2020, giving audiences exactly the right tune and rhythm needed for combating contemporary cynical outlooks.
Excerpt: The chill zen and goofy charm of GenX’s philosopher-fools remains intact, but their latest adventure is too familiar a retelling. Still, “Be excellent to each other” won’t ever not be worth heeding.
Excerpt: If the world could be gifted a million more movies like Bill & Ted Face the Music, it could be the cause for celebration and peace among the nations. Not only is it a welcome blast of nostalgia, it is an eager call for unity amid calamity like none other.
Excerpt: I can happily report that Bill and Ted Face the Music is in the exact same vein as its predecessors. On the surface, there might appear to be something a little deeper on this entry’s mind – dealing with failure and missed opportunities in middle-age – but really, it’s just as frivolous (in a good way!) as the first two.
