George Carlin passes on

Last week, I posted my comments on the American Film Institute’s list of the top-10 SF films, and suggested some of my own substitutions for that list.

That list only went to ten places, but one that’s on my own list of the top 20 SF films is Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Seriously. If you’ve never seen it, you should. It gets all the time-travel stuff exactly right; all the historical stuff right; and is very, very clever and funny — a much better film than Back to the Future, for my money. And it starred George Carlin.

Carolyn and I went to see George Carlin perform in Las Vegas in 1994. He died yesterday. R.I.P, Mr. Carlin.
