Nah. The release of the new Mortal Kombat film reminded me that D.O.A. is undoubtedly the best film based on a fighting game and almost certainly the best based on any game.

I knew the game, I didn’t know there was a film! What a cast though! Matthew Marsden! Steve “no, not that one” Howey!

Clandestino is a cracking summer listen - it’s definitely a sun’s out album for me - along with that Jorge Ben/Gilberto Gil album with Taj Mahal on (aka the track that Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? borrows from hard enough for Stewart to pay up in court for “unconscious plagiarism”).
