Episode 30: The Spider-Ape Comes At Night

Episode 30: The Spider-Ape Comes At Night 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,...

Eclipse Commentary (With Henry & Ian)

We've got vampires, werewolves and mopey teens. We've got hair gel, glitter, no shirt and an angsty playlist. That's right, we've got a commentary! It's time for Henry and Ian to make their long awaited return to the Twilight Saga with David Slade's Eclipse. This may be our most tangential commentary yet, but it's not our fault that very little actually happens in this installment of the series. But turn on your Netflix machine anyway and put your headphones on and listen as we ponder...

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.

This week we get super nostalgic as we philosophise about the 90s and our childhoods. We discuss: the trauma of watching Pulp Fiction at a young age, the cinematic masterpiece that is Space Jam, Kenan & Kel's...

Episode 26: One Year of Watch If

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...

Episode 24: The Watch If Awards

It's the first ever Watch If Awards! Are they Watchifscars? Are they the Watchiffies? We don't know either but what we DO know is that the decisions made by our panel of cinema connoisseurs (it's just Tom, Nick, Henry and Ian) will shake Hollywood to its core. We'll be covering all the traditional categories as well as some awards personally sponsored by each presenter to acknowledge some of the more nuanced successes (and failures) in this latest year of film.

Episode 23: B2 Batspotting

We send Ian and Henry deep into the drug-addled, nostalgic follow up to Trainspotting, T2. Nick and Ian build their case (brick by brick?) for why Lego Batman is the movie the Caped Crusader has been needing for a while. And finally we fire up the Watch If-puter to find who should be sitting in the director's chair for 'The Batman' (yes we...

New Moon Commentary (With Henry & Ian)

With Fifty Shades Darker out in cinemas, Henry and Ian decided to watch the original Darker - that being The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Though, as Bo Burnham said "original does not mean good". A film so silly that even Ian couldn't defend it as he did the last one. On the bright side, we're not short on eye candy, with R Pats and Taylor Lautner being moody and taking their shirts off, and moodily taking their shirts off throughout. Also the delightful Michael Sheen turns up to deliver lines...

Episode 22: Live By La La Land

That's no moon, that's a big, massive, review filled episode of Watch If Podcast! What with it being Awards season, we in the UK find our cinemas packed with competing films every January. But which are actually worth leaving the house for? Watch If is here to help guide and advise you through this busy time. Ian and Henry go fully nocturnal with Live By Night, Nick goes fully pacifist with Hacksaw Ridge, and Tom goes fully loud about Silence. We also have M Night Shyamalan up to his old...

Episode 21: Best Of 2016

Episode 21: Best of 2016 If 2016 were a person they'd be horribly scarred, possibly on fire and missing at least two kidneys. BUT They'd have a pretty good movie collection for sure. Here at Watch If we wanted to celebrate those movies while 2016 rolls on the floor in agonizing pain. So, in the time honoured internet tradition of making lists we've... made lists! TV, Film, Video Games all three major components of "culture" are covered (is art even a thing anymore?). So sit back or lean...

Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope Commentary (With Henry, Tom & Ian)

A long time ago (some time last week) in a galaxy far far away (North Greenwich, near the post office then left a bit) commentary regulars Henry and Ian watched Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. They were not alone though, as they were joined by a mysterious, knowledgeable hooded figure who went by the name Old Ben Midgley... though it didn't take them long to realise it was just Tom. With Tom's help, our heroes talk Star Wars: why people love it, why some people hate George Lucas, what it...

Episode 18: Doctor Strangecast & Marvel Pitches

There was a time when the good Dr Strange was a name known only by a few. A time when Benedict Cumberbatch's illustrious name wasn't backing him up. Now that he's gone mainstream Watch If is here to open that same door up for a few other characters languishing in Marvel's archive. Between Nick, Ian and Tom we take on the task of adapting Z-list heroes and villains for Henry to judge as well as unravel the mysteries of the new Dr Strange movie. Because in this day and age, who doesn't want...
