Gentlemen, we’re history… With the recent announcement of a third Bill & Ted movie, we thought it was finally time to revisit the original two installments in all their late ’80s / early ’90s glory. We also decided to pair them with another ’80s musical sci-fi cult comedy, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Along the way we philosophize about time travel theory, the crucial factors to assembling a great soundtrack, the blinding power of nostalgia and the strange career of Keanu Reeves. So is Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey a misunderstood masterpiece or just a misfire? Can any of us remember the plot of Buckaroo Banzai? Which member of the Film Junk crew is a true Bill & Ted head?
