    The Baby 1973

    ★★★ Watched 20 Nov, 2016

    In 1973, the same year he released the excellent DIRTY HARRY sequel MAGNUM FORCE, director Ted Post also unleashed THE BABY unto the world. I think it's a safe bet which of the two he was more proud of, but still, I hope in the following years, Post would still sit alone sometimes, maybe some liquor in hand, and just silently laugh to himself, in contemplative amusement that he ever somehow got a movie like THE BABY made.

    ½ Watched 11 Oct, 2016 2

    SHIN C-SPAN, is what they should have called this turd.

    If "bureaucracy porn" was a genre, this would be its masterpiece. It's essentially two hours of watching roughly 500 different characters hold a series of meetings, in which they mostly discuss scheduling future meetings.
