|09.05.20||Internet|| Eh, huh. This wasn't bad but... I'm not really sure what I was expecting. I think it just felt like a very sequel-ly sequel. one of the things that makes the first two movies stand out is how bizarre and crazy the second one is, and how it defied a lot of expectations for what a Bill & Ted 2 should be. But with this one, it felt like they were only trying to satisfy those expectations instead of go into further, weirder territory. The stuff that Bill & Ted do kinda hints at that but there's not enough screen time to develop it further than a few make-up driven jokes. Meanwhile, the stuff their kids does is a total re-hash, then the third act is also more or less a re-hash. And then the very end looked like I was seeing a list of Kickstarter backers or something.|
However, I did like it ok overall. It's nice that this movie exists. I'm glad they didn't go over the top with a retro vibe, but still kept the same sensibility of the first two (even though the dialogue is no longer out of the ordinary and Kid Cudi is there for some reason).
I think I'm just in a bad spot with movies lately. I think the changing landscape and comic-book tent-poles has really changed the market in a bad way. Maybe I'm just not seeing enough to find the good movies that go unnoticed.
