    I grew up with the originals being a youngster in the 90’s but I can just imagine millennials holding them up to a high standard (probably never even having watched them) just because they’ve heard from parents/older siblings how much we liked them, then they will think this new one sux because it’s just not for them... wow, anyway, can’t wait.

    Soundtrack will be an important feature of the movie.

    The first two movies featured a brilliant hard rock and metal mix, straddling the two worlds of glam metal and the burgeoning grunge movement of the time. Looking at the list they were melded seamlessly in many respects.

    These two genres are now well out of fashion, with very few bands featuring in the charts in these days of computerised, manufactured music.

    Playing it safe is not an option. Hoping they go for some bands that the two characters are likely to be listening to in their mid-forties.

    Alas, not to be.

    Music was not even a feature of the film.

    It was an ok movie, some slightly funny parts. Alex Winter and William Sadler was on song, Keanu less so, and the daughters did their job pretty well. Wasn't impressed with 'the song didn't matter' naff at the end but what the hell.

    But we live in a 'post-creativity' world, so hard to expect anything original here.

    I liked it, thought it was fun, obviously nostalgic, and liked how they ran the daughters story parallel withe B and T's.

    It was fun. That wasn't my complaint.

    But the lack of music was a problem for me. I mean anyone who was that into Eddie Van Halen at 17 is still going to be a headbanger at heart. These guys would have been still listening to hard rock/heavy metal into their forties.

    The fact that that music is now unfashionable could have been included in the story, while also being respectful to the music and fans just like Bill and Ted.

    It was a good time but agree on the your thoughts on the music.

    Not a deal breaker for me but it certainly wasn't where it should have been.

    The best part was Hendrix and Mozart having a jam

    But everything else in the movie I thought was close to bang on, I even think Keanus performance was deliberately as so as he was the weary one.

    Comedy was pretty funny at times and the daughters were pretty good themselves.

    Only 2 things were
    no station being a slight bummer
    and the robot was funny in an awkward way but also kind of stood out like a sore thumb in the movie.
