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 we’re taking a look at Iron Man 3 from 2013, and joining Tim to for a chat about Tony Stark’s battle against a terrorist who can’t do broadcast intrusions properly and about fifteen thousand other things at the same time is podcaster Phil Catterall. What will they find to say about Guy Pearce playing a Guy Pearce Villain, Osama Bin Laden’s Max Headroom Mask and the mysterious secret identity of ‘Stewart Lee Kid’, and what does any of this have to do with who would win out of Iron Patriot and Squirrel Girl? 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. Actually, we probably shouldn’t be depriving Bruce Banner of one. Although, come to think of it, maybe we should.
Phil has also appeared on It’s Good, Except It Sucks talking about Iron Man here, Inhumans here and Deadpool 2 here, and standing in as host to chat to Tim about Guardians Of The Galaxy here and Ant-Man And The Wasp here. You can find Mark Thompson on Iron Man 2 here, and David Smith on Series One of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. – which tied in directly with Iron Man 3 – here. There’s more about Trevor Slattery’s further appearances with Jim Sangster on All Hail The King here and Tim Worthington on Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings here.
You can also find Phil 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.
