It’s Good, Except It Sucks is a movie by movie – and television series by television series – hurtle through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hosted by Tim Worthington with a series of superpowered guests.
This time it’s the film that started it all – 2008’s Iron Man – and joining Tim to talk about Tony Stark’s jet-propelled escape from not-Taliban-honest-controlled territory with a natty in-built ringtone is podcaster Phil Catterall. What will they find to say about Chekhov’s Ice, Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘business ventures’ and the troubling question mark over who actually played The Dude in The Big Lebowski in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what does any of this have to do with The Absorbing Man sitting in a bin? Get listening and find out!

You can find much more about my love of the less critically lauded corners of cinema, from Michael Caine and Elvis Presley movies to creaky old sci-fi and ‘Video Nasties’, in my book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. Why not give Dum-E another chance to deliver it? Oh right, that’s why.
Phil has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about Madballs Comic, Wise Up!, Phantom 2040, the Platoon computer game, Birdseye Steakhouse Grills adverts, and Star Wars: Droids here, the Christmas Specials of On The Hour, The Chris Morris Music Show and Lee And Herring here, and the Community Christmas Specials here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
