With Summer at its end, it's time for us to look back at the best it had to offer... that being Dunkirk!
Who'd have thought that a Second World War film with confusing timelines, too many characters to count, led by unknown actors, and featuring that one from One Direction could have been one of the biggest and best films of the year?
Well with Christopher Nolan at the helm, anything is possible.
With special guest Elee joining the ranks of Nick, Ian, Tom and Henry, let us lecture you about why this film is great, and why it's treason not to like it...
Hey, remember San Diego Comic Con? What's that? it was too log ago for you to really remember? Well luckily, Watch If Podcast is here to remind of what happened there, and totally not just now releasing something we recorded a long time ago... not at all.
Join Ian, Nick and Tom as they guide you through some of the biggest announcements of the event. From DCEU, the cinematic universe we all love to hate (or just be confused by), to Ready Player One, which will either prove to be a cinematic wonder, or just fan service.
And sadly while Henry is not present, his spirit is very much felt, in a "what is Comic Con?" kind of way.
Ever since Hugh the Jackedman popped his claws in the amazing Logan, we at Watch If have been wondering what other films could benefit from a grizzled old man phase.
So we took the franchises and the characters that made the most sense to see wizened and wrinkled... and then threw those out and set to work on the ones we had left.
Watch If together, strong!
Which is a shame because for this episode we're down a Henry. But worry not because we found another hairless ape to take his place and thus welcome back to the show Greig Morrison.
Bearing the solemn news of George Romero's passing and a fitting eulogy, Greig shares with us the man's impact on cinema.
Following that, reviews of the spooky It Comes at Night, and of course Andy Serkis' simian spectacle.
But let's face it, you're here for one reason really. One reason your review sense is tingling and your palms are sticky. Because there's a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man review swinging in!

The House of Mouse (least intimidating Game of Thrones family?) has welcomed the world to another D23 expo and Watch If has handily rounded up the biggest news and reveals like Woody on speed!
No matter what Disney you're familiar with there was something big to get Goofy about. From Lion Kings to street urchins, from Underminers to Wreckers, from Genies to Jedi.

Then WE BURN IT ALL DOWN. And start over, forming our own cinematic universes from Hyrule to Middle-earth, from Jason Bourne to Kevin Costner. It's a very special broth of ideas and there's almost definitely too many cooks.
On a podcast no-one can hear you scream... until it's been edited, released and uploaded to SoundCloud.
In our latest episode Ian, Henry and Tom bring you their new views, prepared reviews and a little news on:
Colossal, a movie about how alcoholics are harming the Korean tourism industry.
Spaceship, a cyber-gothic film about abduction that left Ian feeling like he'd been taken advantage of.
Jawbone, a new cinematic heavyweight that Henry steps into the ring to champion.
Injustice 2, a game that's also this year's best Justice League movie...
Far Cry 5 and its divisive if intriguing announcement.
Then we begin our vivisection of Alien: Covenant with xeno-consultant Greig Morrison. Finally, like a facehugger planning for parenthood we launch into discussion, planting our hopes for the franchise in the episode's chest.
P.S. We kept recording during Henry's toilet break...
Watch If has turned one year old!We've just started learning how to speak and our first words are "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" which is quite impressive for a one year old if you ask me. That's right, we start this episode the way we started the first, with a review and discussion of Marvel's pre-summer blockbuster.
Following that we look back on the last year with a tear in our eye and a set of questions from our fans. Find out our favourite moments films we've discussed, our favourite "what if" scenarios and we pick at the old wound of the Ghostbusters feud.
And to top it all off, Henry conducts an exclusive interview with the Watch If team, in which we discover some important information about our baby boys. We find out what's the biggest animal Nick could fight, what wine and cheese is best paired with Watch If, and who is really the most attractive member of the team.
It's been a great year of podcasting for us, we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed being all soppy and nostalgic.
