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 Thor: Ragnarok from 2017, and joining Tim for a chat about The God Of Thunder taking part in Willy Wonka’s Ultimate Fighting Championship is journalist Mic Wright. What will they find to say about The Marvel Cinematic Inkbomb, a Present But Not Involved Iron Fist and Korg’s latest provocative forum post, and what does any of this have to do with who would win out of The Daleks and The Cybermen? 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. I’m sure Surtur won’t mind heating it up for you.
