It was a bit of a retro week here at Ronon’s Reviews, covering mainly older but still awesome films. Behind the scenes we've been all go, prepping for the next weeks, receiving the still technically unreleased Flobots album a month early, talking to a indie game studio and conversing with a few bands about their latest records. And of course I'm hoping to finally get Mass Effect up so you can hear how much I love that game. But first here's what's happened in the last seven days.
With the impending release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 I decided to give the first film a quick revisit on Monday, even though everyone has pretty much seen it a dozen times already. But it can never hurt to go back and check out awesomesauce movie to whet the appetite.
You can read my fond look back HERE.

We thought we would end the week on a bit of controversy, with Matt’s review of the 2010 reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which for the record I loved! But some purists hated, killing off what would have been a new franchise before it even kicked off.

Bit of bad news to begin with I'm afraid, South Park’s latest game The Fractured But Whole (hehehehehehe) has been delayed yet again, slated for a March release which never happened, we finally got the info that there are major problems with the development team being not happy with gameplay. Worse thing is when Ubisoft, the publisher, was pressed for a rough estimate, the company responded "in our next fiscal year", meaning anywhere between April 2017 to March 2018. Let's hope it's not that long.
Sunday night (Monday here in the UK) saw the season finale of The Walking Dead, and it was EPIC. I know alot of people this series have complained about "the first episode was too violent" "this whole arc is too slow" "there is too much bad CGI". Well of course the premiere was graphic, it's setting Negan up to be not fucked with! I have no defence for the CGI but the story arc was perfect, where most shows just tell one overall story per season, I feel they wanted to use season 7 to set up the oncoming war in season 8 and I am fine with this. While we may have to wait another 6 months, we at least have Fear The Walking Dead, which starts the 4th of June to keep us occupied.
Here is the freshly released trailer to Annabelle Creation AKA Annabelle 2 (but it's really a prequel), personally I'm not feeling this one but Mags is.
