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 Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings from 2021, and Garreth Hirons is guest-hosting for a chat with Tim about the current betting odds on who would ‘win’ out of Agent 33 from Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Abilisk. What will they find to say about hitting Wolverine with a big stick until he says ‘No not aaaaahhh!’, Ringo Starr’s mastery of ancient cosmic forces and how Hawkeye’s family can ruin films that they aren’t even in, and what does any of this have to do with A Thousand Bad One Man Shows About Lockdown Vs. Abomination? 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. If it goes cold you can always use the Ten Rings to heat it.
