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: Ragnarok from 2017, and joining Tim to talk about the galaxy’s most gambled on game of rock paper scissors is musician Garreth Hirons. What will they find to say about Thor’s Ftone Clearing credentials, precisely how much Jeff Goldblum constitutes The Right Amount Of Jeff Goldblum and whether the Saga of Ragnarok has a moral or is just a bunch of stuff that happened, and what does any of this have to do with Godzilla Vs. Threat Of The Year? 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. Just make sure you run it past Doctor Strange first. Also that he doesn’t turn it into a rolled-up newspaper or something.
