Update: I Spit on Your Grave

New, 3 comments

This morning I mentioned briefly that Captain Mike Leach was asked about any recent movies that he's seen and after mentioning, Knowing (dragged by his old lady?), Season 1 of the Sopranos (he's apparently seen the other seasons, just missed the first) and The Last House on the Left, although Leach made an off-hand comment stating it wasn't as good as "I Spit on Your Grave".

I wasn't exactly sure what this was, and thanks to DTN reader Dale for emailing me about I Spit on Your Grave, which it turns out it was the worst movie experience for Roger Ebert (prompting Dale to make sure he watched it).  I'm not going to blockquote the summary, go visit the Ebert link or check out the Wikipedia link (either one may not be safe for work).

Interestingly, this movie was banned in a number of countries, and it's been argued that this film is actually a feminist piece, so there's that.  Again, a little bit of insight into the mind of the Captain.
