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 Iron Man 2 from 2010, and joining Tim to talk about Tony Stark’s battle of wits with numerous parties trying to copy his technology very badly is political commentator Mark Thompson. What will they find to say about Black Widow’s complete failure to remain convincingly undercover, Richard Herring’s links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and how many unnecessary seconds Elon Musk adds to the running time, and what does any of this have to do with the science in it being ‘wrong’? 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.
Mark has also appeared on Tim’s other podcast Looks Unfamiliar; you can hear one of his appearances, including a section on Hanna Barbera horror-superhero cartoon The Drak Pack, here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
