About
Sean Walsh has been a fan of movies ever since he can remember. His father assures him that he wept when Optimus Prime died in the original Transformers movie, but seeing as how Sean was less than a year old, it was probably just a full diaper. Sean's first actual movie memory was seeing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the theater and he grew up on Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2, and Goonies. His first theatrical R-rated movie was Alien: Resurrection, a film that, for better or for worse, holds a special place in his heart.

When Sean isn't writing for Flixist, he's working on one of his many scripts, playing video games, watching movies, or spending time plotting world domination. His favorite genre is horror, he really likes Arizona's Arnold Palmer lemonade/iced tea beverage, kielbasa and potatoes, comic books and not taking life very seriously. Sean's favorite movies include: Shaun of the Dead, Iron Man, The Searchers, Cabin Fever, Stand By Me, and House of the Devil.

He likes long walks on the beach and getting caught in the rain.

He is also single, and if reports are true, ready to mingle.

Review: Tusk

I have a long-standing history with Kevin Smith, dating back to high school when I first saw the erroneously named "Jersey Trilogy." When Red State came out in 2011, I was intrigued to see what Smith could do with both t...

Five new Tusk images show off our main characters, Michael Parks' stitchwork?

I really, really want Kevin Smith's Tusk to be good. I really did not like Red State, and this movie just looks so delightfully twisted. It's also the first in a trilogy of films, and if it's anything like his last&...

Boondock Saints 3: Legion is coming, whether you like it or not

I've seen the first Boondock Saints once, a long time ago. It was pretty good from what I remember. When The Walking Dead began airing on AMC, I was like, "Oh, cool, that guy from Boondock Saints!" I never saw Boond...

Review: As Above, So Below

So, every now and then, I get really excited about a movie from its trailer (which is the point of a trailer, of course). My top three, in no particular order, would probably be 21 Jump Street, Watchmen, and Guardians of...

Brawn vs. Brainless: Lionsgate picks up Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie film 'Maggie'

First Guardians of the Galaxy clip shows us what we've been waiting for

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII'M HOOKED ON A FEELING, I'M HIGH ON BELIEVING. For those who don't know, this is the first we've seen of Star-Lord with his trademark mask in action. Not a lot of new footage outside of those few, glorious seconds, but it's enough to make my day. August 1st is so close but so far away. [via Collider]
