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 X-Men: Have Yourself A Morlock Little X-Mas, first seen in 1995, and joining Tim for a chat about Gambit mistaking the real meaning of Christmas for Cajun Spice is journalist Mic Wright. What will they find to say about a Republican’s idea of a deranged punk, Victor Meldrew’s time as a member of the X-Men and who the worst-smelling Marvel character to stand in for Santa would be, and what does any of this have to do with a pissed off Winona Ryder? 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 sadly.
Mic has also appeared on Tim’s 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.
