Another Memory Ends
Hello and welcome!
The purpose of this website is to keep a track of my programming efforts, and I also enjoy writing about various things I like.
I’m still coding my way back to where I was before I decided to switch to C instead of C++. I updated the documentation with the new libs (I have to write hundreds of comments though…sigh…). Graphics The graphics library is a wrapper for OpenGL. A lot of functions are not doing much more than […]
Terminator Resistance Teyon (2019) I like the Terminator franchise a lot (well the first two movies are marvelous, after that it’s downhill for sure, even though some things are interesting). Single-player First person shooters are among my favorite genre of games, especially on consoles (I know most people don’t like it). Most Terminator games ended […]
The Aviator Martin Scorcese (2004) I remember watching this movie in the theater when it came out. It was quite different than anything I had seen before, I didn’t expect to see a movie like this and it turned out I was really fascinated by it. The Aviator portrays part of the life of aviation […]
Le Grand Restaurant Jacques Besnard (1966) Still in my De Funes phase, I’ve re-watched a movie I haven’t seen many times (for a reason). Septime, head of a high-end restaurant in Paris, gets in a lot of trouble when the president of a foreign country is kidnapped during dinner. The Bad: The story is not […]
Degrees of Separation Moondrop (2019) I was browsing through PlayStation Store, trying to find a game to play with my girlfriend, and came across this hidden gem for a very reasonable price. Play as Rime and Ember, brought together by a mysterious force, but staying apart in their respective worlds, in this 2D puzzle adventure. […]
RoboCop Paul Verhoeven (1987) Sometimes I don’t understand my own behavior. I’m very much a proponent of auteur theory, if I like an artist I tend to try and look at most of their production. I have liked each Paul Verhoven movies I’ve seen (yes, even Show Girls). Some of them are among my favorites. […]
L’Aile ou la Cuisse Claude Zidi (1976) My current obsession for Louis de Funes continues with another movie I have seen a lot of times when I was young. Watching it again after a few years I was again pleasantly surprised. Charles Duchemin, editor of a prestigious culinary guide, is near retirement, and wants his […]
I have transferred my C++ image library to C. Fortunately that wasn’t too hard, and I’ve been able to make many improvements along the way. After the porting to C it’s cleaner, way more modular, I love it. Features supported image formats: bitmap (.BMP) JPEG PNG GIF (some cases not handled like interlaced data) supported […]
Le Gendarme et les Gendarmettes Jean Girault (1982) Three years after the worst episode in the series, France’s favorite gendarme is back for a final movie. I hadn’t seen it in a long time, and I feared this one would follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, fortunately for me I was pleasantly surprised. Four […]
The GitHub page for the project is now up. Thanks to GitHub pages I can now host the HTML code documentation for my entire C code, which is quite a nice feature. See it here. I have also uploaded a binary version of the generator, with a readme file and an example project. If you […]
Ivanhoe Richard Thorpe (1952) This is one of my childhood movies. It filled me with a sense of wonder, gave me a love for medieval adventures, that lasts to this day. So forget all objectivity here (even more than usual). Returning from the Crusades, England king Richard the Lionheart is held captive in Austria, and […]
Le Gendarme et les Extra-terrestres Jean Girault (1979) Nearly a decade after the previous episode, most of the team returns for a movie that really stands out from the rest, but not in a good way… The brigade of St-Tropez encounters beings from another planet. Ludovic Cruchot is soon hunted by his own comrades while […]
Alien: Covenant Ridley Scott (2017) A lot of people criticized Prometheus for its lacks of ties with the original Alien movie. Ridley Scott returns once again to direct the sequel and continue the story. Some hoped he would finally “fix the errors” of the previous film, and make a truly worthy prequel to Alien. They […]
Prometheus Ridley Scott (2012) It’s a very common thing with people my age: I’ve been a huge fan of the Alien saga since I was a child (even though now I’m thinking maybe no kid should see those movies?). Like many, I was expecting a lot from this movie, with Ridley Scott returning to direct […]
Mission to Mars Brian de Palma (2000) I remember seeing this movie in the cinema when it came out, I was very young, and I don’t remember watching it again many times after that. Mars is always a great setting for a science fiction movie. It has that aura around it, so far and mysterious […]
Doom Eternal id Software (2020) Like many a kid growing up in the 1990’s, I have played the original Doom. I skipped Doom 3, and was stupidly skeptical when the great Doom (2016) came out. I swiftly corrected this idiotic viewpoint by playing it, and was very eager to play the sequel. As the Doom […]
Gladiator Ridley Scott (2000) I remember very well seeing this movie for the first time. I went in with other kids from my school. There was an annoying one that had an interest in history and would make unrequited comments during the projection, and someone rightfully asked him to shut up. I liked it so […]
Monty Python and the Holy Grail Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones (1975) I knew of Monty Python long before seeing any of their material, but I had to reach a certain level of English to “get” them, so I came to it fairly late. King Arthur travels the realm searching for companions to join the Knights […]
Le Gendarme en balade Jean Girault (1970) This is probably the episode I’ve seen the most. I used to know the dialog by heart (not anymore haha), it was great to watch it again after several years. Forced into retirement, the brigade of St-Tropez has trouble adjusting to civilian life. When one of their own […]
A simple API I have not worked a lot with concurrency in the past, though in my C++ code I made a small multi-threaded job system, that I barely used. This time I wanted to introduce it quite early in the code to maximize chances of using it when applicable. And just to be more […]
