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 Thor from 2011, and joining Tim to talk about the God of Thunder punching a big robot suit of armour in New Mexico is board game expert and film critic Vikki Gregorich. What will they find to say about the lone appearance of young persons’ popular beat music on the soundtrack, Chris Hemsworth’s Nostril Acting, and how and where the film fits in with the chronology of everyone pretending they’d seen The Wire before everyone else, and what does any of this have to do with Liv Tyler on steroids? 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.
Vikki has also appeared on Tim’s other podcast Looks Unfamiliar; you can hear the full show, including a section on Marvel graphic novel The Last American, here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
