Time Travel Consecution, Episode 1

The number of times I've needed that time travelling telephone box during exam season... Anyway, this was a technically solid edit, Narrative mostly made sense, although not sure what happened after Billy the Kid walked in. This looks like a pretty stupid but funny film, and the edit certainly captures that. These guys must be related to the dudes from Dude Where's Your Car. Or maybe all stoner types sound like this in film.

On a side note, big fan of the old FE logo that appears at the end, hadn't seen that one before.

Way cool, junior
Well thought out and executed “Cliff’s Notes” version of the duo’s adventures.
Perfect for school slackers who only have fifteen minutes to devote to film class.
A bit jumpy at times, but not too much so. Besides, one is literally propelled at breakneck speed to pay much attention to tiny flaws.
There is a palpable joie de vivre electricity in this edit which is infectious.
I like to imagine John Wick watching this during his more thoughtful moments.

Wayne was a good editor, and a FE asset, but I understood how the more professional world beckoned.
For the curious, Wayne’s pitch for Hitchhikers is still viewable.

Totally tubular edit! This is basically the core of the film condensed into 15 minutes. It's no small feat and for the most part done seamlessly. It's hard for me to divorce myself of the source knowledge but I think this would still work and be decently funny. As a fan of the theatrical cut, this was a really fun, condensed alternate viewing. Good job!

A good effort at taking what amounts to "What if Doctor Who's protagonist was actually a pair of American slackers?" AKA Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and condensing it into a short film. Overall it works, but there were a couple of minor issues I couldn't help noticing - things like the new text for the title sequence not being quite the right colour, for example.

Narratively, I think it works, although it's to be expected that the film loses some of its charm by being distilled down to its core plot.

If you liked the original film, you'll almost certainly enjoy this version.

Nice work condensing Bill and Ted's into a short, its quite a feat. Obviously a lot of material is lost, but this short is hilarious nonetheless. A few rough transitions occasionally but nothing too distracting. Overall, this is a great edit to visit for fans and newcomers will find something enjoyable too. Great job wayne workman
