Episode 62 - Rogue One: A Worst Adults Story

In this day and age, spoilers are everywhere. If you don't see it, hear it or smell it on day one, someone will tell you everything about it on day two. An The Worst Adults are sick of it! So they broke into Skywalker Ranch and stole the script to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story so that they could spoil it first*! And... well... you're going to be disappointed. This episode is filled to the brim with Star Wars goofs, plot holes, social commentary, shallow character development, way too many Forrest Gump impressions, and morals about data safety. Enjoy!

Talking points:

  • The perfect heist! (00:00)
  • Womp rats! (09:00)
  • Death Star doomsday! (12:42)
  • Spoilers! (12:42)

Star Wars Week: Day 7 - The Force Awakens

FAIR WARNING: THIS EPISODE IS A COMPLETE PLOT BREAKDOWN OF THE FORCE AWAKENS. DO NOT LISTEN IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED IN ALL CAPS. THANK YOU. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY. WE LOVE YOU. ALMOST AS MUCH AS WE LOVE THE FORCE AWAKENS. YES, DEAR FRIEND, STAR WARS WEEK IS BAAAAAAAAAACK!

That's right, the Groundhog Day-style existence you've been living has finally come to an end and Star Wars Week can come to a close... at least until December 15, 2017, when the great Beatles prophecy of an 8-day week will be fulfilled by cinematic genius Rian Johnson.

But don't think about that right now... Today is a celebration of the release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens! As we recount the entire plot of the film, we drool over the sheer giddiness of the whole project, address the J.J. Abrams's blase fair approach to exposition, toe the line between nostalgia and laziness, have a real hard time remembering Poe Dameron's name, speculate about an MIA Luke Skywalker, and allow ourselves to get excited for Episode VIII! It's a really good time to be a Star Wars fan, folks.

Star Wars Week: Day 5 - The Empire Strikes Back

What is there to say about The Empire Strikes Back that hasn't been said already? Probably nothing... But when has that ever stopped us?

In this episode we declare this the best in the series, go out of our way to find faults with it, and Matthew takes a worrying step in the direction of the dark side...

Star Wars Week: Day 4 - A New Hope

Alright, folks! We're walking down a dangerous path now: Discussing a movie people actually care about. As we enter the second phase of Star Wars week (the original trilogy), our hearts soften, our frowns are turned upside down, and the undertow of nostalgia drags us out to sea where we will almost certainly drown in the torrents of bliss.

In this episode we explore the (surprisingly positive) repercussions of the prequel trilogy, hear from someone who has never seen Star Wars, and enter a period of sci-fi enlightenment! The force is strong with this one.

Star Wars Week: Day 3 - Revenge of the Sith

Here we are at the end of the first (chronological) trilogy, and we have only one question: Is this chapter better than the irredeemable Attack of the Clones? There are a lot of people concerned our sanity, and we ourselves aren't sure how much more we can take. In short: No. But that's not going to stop us from taking a crack at understanding this misguided effort! 

Remember to check in tomorrow for our next installment!

Star Wars Week: Day 2 - Attack of the Clones

More action! More emotion! More space politics than anybody ever asked for! The second film in George Lucas's second Star Wars trilogy is all about MORE! But is that a good thing? Did anyone learn from the mistakes of The Phantom Menace? Is this even a Star Wars movie? Find out today!

Star Wars Week: Day 1 - The Phantom Menace

Hey, did you guys know they've made another Star Wars... and that it comes out Friday, December 18th? Because they did... and it does! To celebrate, we here at The Worst Adults HQ have been watching through the previous six movies, and have decided to dedicate the entire week to them - an episode a day, Sunday through Friday - all leading up to Episode VII - The Force Awakens! So come back each day this week for another installment.

Today we offer you one of the most reviled movies in cinematic history, The Phantom Menace. Is there anything to love about it? Is Jar Jar Binks really that bad? Does it hold up? We dig into the plot, the characters, and our feelings towards the prequels and the entire franchise in our first installment.
