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 Blade, released in 1998, and joining Tim for a chat about Eric Brooks telling some speaker-worshipping vampires to keep the noise down in no uncertain terms is writer Sophie Davies. What will they find to say about how to distinguish ‘icky’ vampires from goth vampires, who would win out of Harry Potter and Deacon Frost and the chances of Wesley Snipes forming his own brass section, and what does any of this have to do with the role of Drop Dead Fred’s coat in the classic horror tradition? 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. Actually, with the vampires and everything, it’ll probably have to be a Pumpkin Spice Latte but there you go.
Sophie has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar – talking about *allSTARS, The All Star Impressions Show, InseKtorS, Clone, The Grott Street Gang and AD/BC: A Rock Opera – which you can find here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
