I loved the original Bill And Ted film as a kid, even thought the sequel was decent. Pity Bill & Ted Face The Music isn't as good as the first two. Really hoping Keanu's upcoming Matrix 4 will be better than the 2nd and 3rd films though doubt it will top the first one.
It's seems like people who grew up with the original prefer it. Those who saw the 2nd one first and maybe even those like yourself who saw both late prefer the later. I've seen the original but I doubt I've seen the second one. In this one, I thought Bill and Ted captured what I remember from the original but grown up. I thought the daughters were good while not stealing the spotlight from Bill and Ted. Death was good and Dennis was hilarious. Overall there was just about enough for me to ignore the 21st century politics.
Unlike a lot of people I really liked Matrix Reloaded. The first is the "better film" but to me Reloaded was more entertaining. I don't have very high hopes for Matrix 4 and this film has done nothing to change my mind.
