I do not want a third Bill & Ted movie.

Particularly this one.

When we last met Bill and Ted they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesized to save the universe with their rock and roll, middle age and the responsibilities of family have caught up with these two best friends who have not yet fulfilled their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written…

And that’s where I stopped reading.  Continuity, mother[expletive deleted]! Do you speak it!?!

This has been addressed by the end credits.  Those newspaper headlines cataloged it all.  This movie concept is stupid nonsense.  Come up with something that works for Bill and Ted Face the Music, or go home.

PS: And George Carlin is dead, [expletive deleted]!  Thanks for reminding me of that, too. Yeah, I know, but he was once of the best stand-up comics of my lifetime.

    You seem a little……riled up…about this, Moe.

      Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure was one of the best time travel movies ever made.

        Speaking of “best time travel movies” did you ever see the movie version of Heinlein’s “–All You Zombies–“? It’s called Predestination.

          No! I have not. 🙂

            Unless you hated the story, you should. As a big Heinlein fan, I went into it with a bad feeling, but I thought it was pretty good at being true to the spirit of the short story.

            I was shocked when the additions to the plot (not the padding, but the extension of the plot–I don’t want to give any spoilers) not only didn’t suck but fit fairly well into it. YMMV but I thought it was pretty great.

    This is the harbinger of the Gathering, where old actors feel an irresistible pull toward a long-ago character.

    Ralph Macchio, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Candace Cameron, and some other people whose names escape me have all answered the clarion call, the clear sound of silver cash registers shattering the morning calm, calling them home.

    Contrarian opinion…Carlin was a great social commentator and comic but not a great stand up comedian.
    My reasonong…I saw the man perform three times over a period of ten years and each performance was a word for word revision of whatever album or special was most current. Exact replicas. Exact to the point that he wouldn’t pause in his delivery for audience reactions and immediately left the stage after the last word. It was frankly surprising the first time, disappointing the second, and the reason he got no more of our money the third.
