Seven Psychopaths – 5 out of 5
When I first saw this trailer I said, “That looks awesome.” I saw Walken, Ferrell, Harrelson, my favorite character actor Zeljko Ivanek and Sam Rockwell in it and I said, “Yes, all kinds of yes, I want to see this movie.” And then I saw Tom Waits—my favorite singer/songwriter—and I exploded. After recovering from the explosion I made it my mission to see this film. Sadly I never got to see it in the theaters because I’m grossly poor and I was too busy recovering from being exploded but now that it arrived on DVD, I got to finally sit down and take this one in…and I ended up loving it!

Christopher Walken impression.
Marty (Colin Ferrell) is a screenwriter trying to write a script he titled Seven Psychopaths and is getting help from his friend Billy (Sam Rockwell). Marty soon finds himself in some deep trouble as Billy and his friend Hans (Christopher Walken) kidnaps a criminal’s dog (played by Woody Harrelson—the criminal, not the dog). Even though Marty may end up dying because of a Shih Zu he finds inspiration for his screenplay and meets a true psychopath along the way that carries a rabbit around with him (Tom Waits).
|"You wanna know where I kept this money?"|
|Mickey Rourke was originally going to be in the film...|
he still made it in...in a way.
|Crispin Glover even had a cameo...he's right above the guy on the left's head.|
|That hat also deserves an Academy Award nomination.|
|You've come a long way from they days of playing a legally retarded bartender.|
|I know Walken was in this film but cowbell was the last thing|
this movie needed more of...More Waits was needed. I also
apologize for referencing that now played out SNL skit.
|I would pay money to hear every actor in this film do|
their best Walken impression...you're up, Ivanek.
Seven Psychopaths is just an all-out entertaining movie that tells a great story that builds at a perfect pace and culminates with a great ending, has a fantastic cast and is just plain funny and fun to watch.
|The film also inspired the cover to my new album for my hipster acoustic rock band.|
