BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY
1991, Park Circus/MGM, 93 min, USA, Dir: Peter Hewitt

As their saga continues, Bill & Ted have created a utopia through music - but it’s threatened when a malcontent (Joss Ackland) sends evil robotic versions of the two back through time to sabotage their pivotal performance at the San Dimas Battle of the Bands.

BILL & TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 90 min, USA, Dir: Stephen Herek

In this cult comedy favorite, teen slackers Bill Preston (Alex Winter) and Ted Logan (Keanu Reeves) could fail their history class unless they get a good grade on their oral report. But the stakes are even higher for the future of humanity, so the duo are given a time-traveling phone booth (manned by George Carlin), which introduces them to such historical figures as Napoleon, Billy the Kid and Socrates.
