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 Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 from 2017, and joining Tim to talk about the crew of The Benatar being hired to protect some batteries they’ve accidentally stolen is journalist Emma Burnell. What will they find to say about whether space movies are spoiled by too much ‘kissing’, how to spot a young Kurt Russell cunningly disguised as a young Kurt Russell, and whether Ego The Living Planet is more intelligent than a cat, and what does any of this have to do with quite how many powerful hallucinogens you are recommended to ingest before watching Rambo III? Get listening and find out!
