Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, and welcome to our first episode with our new co-host Ian Green. Ian is the DM on our D&D podcast, and after 67 episodes of dealing with Skype problems he is stepping in to join Adam in an all-London podcast, so expect sirens. We’ll be keeping some stuff the same, changing or rebranding others, and maybe introducing some new features over the next couple of episodes. We hope you enjoy it!

News

This week we were largely talking about all of the footage released from this year’s San Diego Comic Con, so we chat about (in varying levels of detail): Wonder WomanJustice LeagueKong: Skull IslandFantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemLego BatmanDoctor StrangeLuke CageIron FistThe DefendersThe Great Wall and Blair Witch. Aside from all that SDCC nonsense, we also talk about the problems with Pokémon Go’s updates, No Man’s Sky and the huge number of copies of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child that have been sold.

Screentime – Our tentative title for film and TV reviews and discussion
For the first instalment of Screentime (please, if you can think of a better title let us know!) we are reviewing and discussing Star Trek: Beyond, the 3rd instalment of the rebooted Star Trek movie universe. We go fairly spoiler heavy, so if you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want parts of the plot spoiled for you then skip from 43:34-67:10. We go into what we thought of the film, and what worked and didn’t work (or who didn’t work) for us.

Now Playing – Our catchup for what media we have been consuming, the title of which we came up with after recording. We’ll be chatting about what we are reading, watching and playing right now!

Adam Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse/Stranger Things on Netflix/Uncharted 4 on PS4
Ian Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf by R.A. Salvatore/He isn’t watching anything right now/Mass Effect 3 on Xbox 360

The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 43 – Donation Butter

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

This week we chat about a few things from this year’s San Diego Comic Con, including the new Batman Vs. Superman and Suicide Squad footage, Con Man, some behind the scenes clips from Star Wars VII and Ash Vs. Evil Dead, while Gary wishes that Terminator Genisys was worse than it is and Adam hates the concept of love that transcends the space-time continuum.

The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 20 – Panhandling

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

It’s been a while, hasn’t it gentle listeners? Busy lives got in the way for a bit, but now we are back with a new episode for your earballs. This week we briefly chat about a couple of things we missed, like that Deadpool Blur test footage and a few things from San Diego Comic Con, while Gary lifts all the things and Adam somehow creates a wormhole from the IMAX near Waterloo station in London right to Liverpool. Or he has a brain fart and says he saw GotG at the Liverpool IMAX even though he has never actually been to Liverpool.

We had two main talking points this week. The first was last week’s Gamescom, and we talk about (amongst other things) our annoyance over the exclusivity/temporary exclusivity of Rise of the Tomb Raider, Quantum Break gameplay, the Silent Hills playable teaser, Alien Isolation and the Bloodborne gameplay footage.

Our second talking point was to briefly chat about our (spoiler free!) reactions to Guardians of the Galaxy, now that we have both seen it. Unsurprisingly, we loved it, and if you haven’t checked it out yet you absolutely should in the cinema.

Finally, we have brought back a segment from our old podcast for your listening pleasure. ‘Gary in 60 Seconds’ returns, and will be a regular feature from now on (unless people hate it, in which case we will do it even more). Pretty simple: each episode one of us will sum up everything about a particular film, picked by the other Lighthouse Keeper the episode before, in 60 seconds or less. Obviously this does mean spoilers will be included, so we will try and avoid films that are recent! This week Gary attempts to summarise ‘Machete Kills’.
