Moving on Up

Please allow me a bit of flag waving. First off, I was very pleased to see the following list by Forbes of the best employers in Canada, with Ubisoft Montreal (where I work) coming in at #6, and then #1 for the province of Quebec. I find it to be a pretty great work environment, […]

Prey

Well, I’m sad to say I’m just not into this game. I was excited to play it, knowing how well it was received (and hearing a lot of friends say good things about it), but I had a play session of about an hour and a half, and didn’t like my time with it at […]

Ode

On top of the Fun House here at Montreal’s Ubisoft studio (where I work), the other Ubi studio making smaller games is Ubisoft Reflections, and they suddenly released a new game this week called Ode (only on PC). I’ve played through half of it (I don’t have a PC at home to play games, so […]

No Way Out

I used to really like watching political thrillers (like the Tom Clancy movies, and stuff produced by Mace Newfeld, like this movie) and I had good memories of this movie. It starts off on the cheesy side — imagine a romance similar to what you get in Top Gun — but by the time the […]

Mannequin

I was quite looking forward to watching this — sure, I didn’t think it would be anything amazing, but I remembered it being fun, in the same way that Weird Science is. I’d completely forgotten that James Spader was in this too — so make that two movies they did together in 1987, the other […]

The Hidden

When I added this to my list of 1987 films to watch, I thought I’d never seen it, but as I was watching it I started getting a sense of having seen it (I started recognizing some sequences and character faces). I think this is a pretty entertaining movie, and Kyle MacLachlan is fun and […]

Wall Street

This is still a pretty entertaining movie, and after watching it it actually made me want to re-watch the sequel that came out a few years ago — I’ve seen that sequel, and don’t remember thinking it was particularly great, but having the original fresh in my mind I’m more interested now in seeing the […]
