It’s Good, Except It Sucks: Spider-Man 2 With Sophie Davies

Spider-Man 2 (2004) - Sophie Davies joins Tim Worthington for a chat about Doctor Octopus getting some free garlic bread when his pizza turns up late in It's Good, Except It Sucks.

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 Spider-Man 2, released in 2004, and joining Tim for a chat about Doctor Octopus getting some free garlic bread when his pizza turns up late is writer Sophie Davies. What will they find to say about the ‘Feral Beatles’ hairstyle, whether ‘Thanos’ and ‘Groot’ are the new ‘Uvavu’ and ‘Eranu’ and who would win out of Michael Buble and a busking hipster, and what does any of this have to do with The Most Early 2000s Rock Song Ever? Get listening and find out!

Buy A Book!

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. Having Kirsten Dunst shout “GO GET ONE, TIGER BRACKETS A COFFEE” will be just about acceptable as an alternative.
