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.

Trailer: Foxcatcher

Yay, a new Foxcatcher trailer! Is anybody as excited for this film as I am? Between my love of Channing Tatum, Steve Carrell, and Mark Ruffalo, the dreary atmosphere, and incredibly intense subject matter, I am ecstatic for ...

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

Arnold Schwarzenegger has fought a lot of things in his heyday: predators, mercenaries, illegitimate children, Satan, kindergartners, robots, and even mutants on Mars. One thing that he hasn't battled, to my knowledge, is a z...

Review: Sin City - A Dame to Kill For

Sin City has always had a special place in my heart. Way back in 2005, when the first film came out, I was in my senior yearo f high school, taking Film as Art. One of our assignments was to write a paper on a film we se...

Review: Let's Be Cops

I love the Buddy Cop genre. Lethal Weapon, Beverly Hills Cop, 21 Jump Street (and its sequel), even Hollywood Homicide. I also love The New Girl. Imagine my surprise and delight when two of the leads from The New Girl were go...

Dear Warner Brothers: an open letter regarding your fledgling cinematic universe

(Spoiler alert ahead.) Dear Warner Brothers, You don't know who I am, but that's okay. I'm just another avid comic fan who is excited about the prospect of a cinematic universe that could possibly counter the Marvel Cinematic...

Trailer: Maps to the Stars

By now, we all know that there's plenty of reasons for the rich and famous to be miserable. The cost of fame is high, and it can ripple through generations. That looks to be what David Cronenberg's new film Maps to the Stars...

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]

Only four minutes of Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2? That's a good thing.

At SXSW, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb revealed that the Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti, will only be in the movie for a scant four minutes. GOOD. Three villains is too many, something Webb is well aware o...

Review: Cheap Thrills

Any movie synopsis that includes "black comedy" and "David Koechner" is an instant sell for me. Toss in Empire Records' Ethan Embry and the two leads from Ti West's The Innkeepers and my expectations will be through...

Sean's Hottest Babes of 2013

I love women. We all know this about me. I've been, for better or for worse, the resident 'Babe Expert' since the time before Flixist took its first steps onto dry land. I love women of all shapes, sizes, colors, creeds, heig...

FlixList: Top 10 Worst Grossing Movies of 2013

Trailer: Devil's Due

Locke and Key movie execs wary of three-year-old TV pilot

Insidious 3 set for 2015

Okay, so Insidious 2 was not exactly the sequel I had hoped it would be. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. It just wasn't as good as the first one, despite having a far less ridiculous, far less Darth Maul-looking c...
