The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 51 – Burn it Down

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse.

This week we chatted about the Warcraft trailer, Force for Daniel and Alien:Covenant, while Adam hates pointless construction and Gary is made uncomfortable by the concept of sex.

Gary in 60 seconds was ”Troll Hunter’, with Adam attempting to summarise this Norwegian found-footage film in under a minute. Gary is up next time, so keep an eye on Twitter today for the poll to choose what he goes for!

Following on from another Twitter poll, for the main talking point this week we discussed sex scenes in films and whether they are ever necessary or if they should just be made obvious but not shown. We have differing opinions, especially on the use of the word necessary.
