Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

 (1989)

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) and Alex Winter (The Lost Boys) deliver "spirited performances" (The Hollywood Reporter) in the original righteous comedy about the two ditzy dudes from San Dimas, California. Also starring George Carlin, this hysterically funny historical comedy is a "snappily directed" (Time), "bouncy good time" (The Boston Globe) and a party that goes on and on! Bill (Winter) and Ted (Reeves) have spent so much time forming their rock band, The Wyld Stallyns, that they're flunking history. Whoa, duuuude! And when Ted's dad threatens to send him away to military school, Bill and Ted realize it could mean the most heinous end of The Stallyns! Luckily, a guardian angel from the future, Rufus (Carlin), has come to them with a most bodacious solution: a time-traversing phone booth to take them into the past to learn about the world from some of history's most influential personalities.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure time-warps from 1989 to 2012 with a most righteous—or, at least, mostly righteous—1080p/AVC- encoded Blu-ray presentation. I was kind of surprised by how great the film looks in high definition. MGM has treated the movie well, with a seemingly true-to-source transfer of a very clean print. You might catch a couple of errant white flecks here and there, but you'd really have to go out of your way to look for them. Better yet, the picture is unmarred by digital noise reduction, harsh edge enhancement, or compression woes. Grain is readily visible in the image—it's a bit chunky, without being obtrusive—and though the film only sits on a single layer, 25 GB disc, there are no overt banding or artifacting issues. If some scenes appear a little soft, it's likely that they've always been that way, and for the most part, clarity gets a tremendous boost from the DVD edition, with tighter facial textures, more visible clothing patterns, and more historical detail. (See how obviously fake Lincoln's mole appliance looks now.) Color seems accurate as well—no oversaturation or wishy-washyness here—and contrast is natural, neither adversely crushing shadow detail or breaking apart highlights. Fans should be pleased.


Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film gets a decent aural upgrade as well—I imagine Bill and Ted would probably make some sort of aural/oral joke here—with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that rocks sufficiently hard. Most of the action blasts from up front, but given all the time travel shenanigans and historical tomfoolery, the multi-channel mix finds plenty of occasions to engage the rear speakers with effects. Electricity arcs and crackles. Horses gallop from one side to the other. The inter-chronal phone booth darts and swooshes through the time tubes. Ambience is more modest and restrained, but it's there if you listen for it. Of course, music is the big draw here, and it all sounds great, from the orchestral cues to the air guitar solo shredding to the uber-1980s "Two Heads Are Better Than One," by the band Nelson, who were billed here as "Power Tool." Throughout all the madness, dialogue is always balanced and easily understood, although there are a few instances where volume seems to dip slightly. The disc also includes a Spanish Dolby Digital mono dub, along with English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles.
