Varsity Hockey’s First Kick at the Can

TBAW’s NHL Live Feed

By Connor Bullock

The UCC Blues Varsity Hockey team has a lot to prove this year. Starting the pre-season with last year’s championship still in the back of our minds we knew we would need to come out storming. We started with four games, all exhibition, two against Ridley and two against Appleby.  Both are regular season rivals. We were lacking numbers, weakened by the football players on our team, and we had plenty of call-ups from the JV squad. After the four games we were still winless, losing twice and tying twice. They are both teams we conquered last year on our way to becoming regular season and playoff champions, however they proved to be better than last year.

Skyfall: Movie Review

The closest Bond comes to “washed-up retiree” is a navy suit.

By Matthew Bu

In the tragic, post-industrial, bourgeoisie world we live in, successful movie series are hard to come by. Sequels disappoint when compared to the original. Movies simply repeat each other, even when they’re not in the same series. The Bond series seems to have an immunity token, refusing to be voted off the island, and remaining firm in its refusal to accept mediocrity. Skyfall returns to the classic Bond formula which made the series so great: interesting villains, gritty violence, a darkly humorous Bond, and comparably brighter supporting actresses. This may, however, be the boldest Bond film yet. With Skyfall you get gorgeous sets, well-executed fight scenes, and a smart script that hooks you from the very start.
