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 Avengers: Infinity War from 2018, and joining Tim to talk about Iron Man, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange re-enacting Three Men In A Boat in space is writer Martin Ruddock. What will they find to say about how many decimal points Loki is evil to, how much longer Iron Fist can make a film and whether Vision is afraid of telephone directories, and what does any of this have to do with Space Norman Tebbit? 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. Make sure it’s sufficiently strong that Vision urges Wanda to ‘save’ herself.
