Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey ★★★★

I've never watched a movie so deeply uninterested in being a "sequel." This is very much the second Bill & Ted movie, but the original had a franchise-defining template established, where the two leads would head back in time again, and Bogus Journey just says "nah, what about something way weirder?" It took me a long time to get on board, because it ditches some of the earnest cheese in favor of outright weirdness, but by the time they're playing Battleship with Death, I was all the way the fuck in. All-time great sequel, even if I think the original is a better movie.
