    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

    ★★★★½

    By far my favourite Keanu Reeves film. Yeah the special effects have aged fairly terribly (they were a little to ambitious for their time) but in terms of writing and performances this serves as a delightful feel good comedy that is just a blatant joy to watch. Getting to see this in a theatre was such a fun experience. This is starting to become one of those films that I revisit most consistently. It's something I can just put on anytime of the day and be satisfied.

    Practically a perfect film. Loved it even more on re-watch.

    I really loved the this in the first 30 minutes or so. Does an amazing job at setting up the narrative and the fascinating possibilities that could come out of such a concept. But once everything is established, and the direction of the story is clear, the result is just a flat and underwhelming mess that tries to take itself seriously, despite the countless plot holes that pollute it. Brad Pitt's performance is impressive, he really adds depth to this…

    ★★½

    An insanely uncomfortable experience that although purposeful lacks any real reason to exist. It's essentially two hours of explicitly presenting people getting tortured by fascists in the worst ways imaginable. I couldn't help thinking what the point was in making this. It's a pointless experience that doesn't do much aside from make you feel physically sick. I guess the intention was to present a view of the worst of humanity in action, but is there any real point in watching that?
