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 heading into the Multiverse for a look at Deadpool 2 from 2018, and joining Tim to talk about Wade Wilson leading the newly formed X-Force straight into some overhead power lines is podcaster Phil Catterall. What will they find to say about ‘Punchborg’, whether or not Vinnie Jones is a literal Juggernaut and the inherent tone problems in putting a double Fridging next to a big load of TEE HEE FUNNY MURDERS, and what does any of this have to do with Nightcrawler saying ‘aaaaaaaaahhhhh!’? 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.
