Movie Review: Seven Psychopaths

5 out of 5

Seven Psychopaths Poster

Seven Psychopaths is a comedic crime thriller written and directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). The cast includes Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits. To even lightly explain the plot is to rob you of the experience of the film. The simplest way to give you an idea of the chaos that ensues is to say that it involves a writer, psychopaths, dognapping and murder.

Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths

Earlier this year I was finally able to watch the film. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, aside from a stellar cast. I thoroughly enjoyed it but was at a loss to write a review. I merely tweeted the below.

Luckily contributor Hot Donna caught the movie this week. She has decided to share her thoughts on it with us below.

Colin Farrell,  Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths is Excellente! It makes me want to rewatch Matchstick Men and Choke. I love Sam Rockwell. He’s both hilarious and nuts. It’s the perfect black comedy with action and a fitting ending. Seven Psychopaths is the best movie I’ve seen in years. I laughed and was frightened at the same time.

Drink the Worm

I thought this would be something short and fun to post on a weekend. I didn’t post it before now because I had been drinking for a couple of hours before it was recorded it and I know I don’t look all that hot. I think I look like I should be on Cops, in fact. Anyway, when my sister came to visit for my birthday her boyfriend and I said we should all go out to the bar but my sister had a cold. So we were just chilling at home watch Party Down and I got the bright idea that we should drink these little bottles of Mezcal that my aunt gave me last year when I visited (they were attached to shot glasses which she knows I collect). Someone gave them to her after they took a vacation to Mexico. I should have been less worried about the worm and more worried about the taste. It tasted like lighter fluid, ugh. I would rather do shots of 151 (again) than drink this stuff. My birthday is on Memorial Day so that’s why we had the red, white and blue lei’s.

Happy Easter!

Yes, I’m an atheist but I still like religious holidays because they are an excuse to spend time with family and dress up (when I feel like it). A couple of years ago my friend Jen had a few of us over to decorate Easter eggs (adults only) and I couldn’t believe that it was still fun.
