Film: Bill and Ted's Double Bill (and double Ted)

The Prince Charles Cinema has an excellent Christmas season consisting of Yuletide classics (including Die Hard of course) and some other fun nights to keep the punters visiting during what usually be cinemas' quietest time of year. 

One such night was a back-to-back showing of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journeys. Excellent!

First up was Excellent Adventure which is probably the stronger of the two as our two heroes travel back in time to research their History exam. This is great with an excellent cast, Jane Weidlin playing Joan of Arc being my favourite. 

Second up was Bogus Journey which is still entertaining but not as fun as the first one. This one sees the two heroes being killed and their journey back into the real world. The scenes with Death are great and I still like the fact Turbo from the Breakdance films is one of the robot us's.  This is also the film that features the best erection reference ever put to film "I've got a full-on robot chubby"indeed!

and well done to the cinema for stocking a supply of air guitars for those of us who forgot to bring ours along.

The latest in the monkey series sees the monkey clan uproot and heading off to the desert, because that's a good climate for monkeys ...
