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 Logan, released in 2017, and joining Tim for a chat about Wolverine setting off on the world’s most poorly reviewed Uber journey is journalist Mic Wright. What will they find to say about the correct manner in which to address the Spider-Mens General, Jeremy Renner’s Backwards Baseball Cap and the unmade lost X-Men classic Him With The Claws, and what does any of this have to do with Blade fighting over who gets to fight Blade? 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. Though poor old Logan can’t have any as he’d just shred the cardboard cup. Probably in black and white for added ’emphasis’ too.
Mic joined me on It’s Good, Except It Sucks for a chat about Have Yourself A Morlock Little X-Mas, the Christmas Special of the X-Men animated series, here, Thor: Ragnarok here and the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of The Punisher here. There’s more from the X-Men franchise with Gabby Hutchinson Crouch on X-Men: X2 here, David Smith on X-Men: First Class here, Emma Burnell on Deadpool here and Phil Catterall on Deadpool 2 here.
Mic has also appeared on my nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about The Adventures Of Pete And Pete, Army And Navy Sweets, Emergency by 999, Rock On by David Essex, Thunderbirds comic and the murky origins of a certain unsavoury playground rumour here, and I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape by The Times, Clarissa Explains It All, 2000 AD strip Nikolai Dante, Sharky And George, Jeff Lint and The Game here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
