Monsters: Dark Continent photo

Trailer: Monsters - Dark Continent

I have to be honest: I haven't seen Gareth Edwards' Monster. I did, however, interview him wayyyyyyyyyyy back when Flixist was just a little baby website, and he was a super cool dude. The man very clearly loves monster movies, as was evid...

 
 
As Above, So Below photo

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 the Galaxy. I ...

 
 
Trailer: Foxcatcher photo

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 the November 14...

 
 
 
Sin City 2 Review photo

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 see in theaters, ...

Let's Be Cops Review photo

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 going to appear i...

X-Men: Apocalypse to take place in 1983

According to a recent The Q&A podcast featuring X-Men: Apocalypse screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg, Apocalypse will take place in 1983. Hopefully we get to see Wolverine and Beast do some coke together before they go off to ...

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 is about....

Trailer: Sex Tape (Red Band)

You know, being one of the youngest guys at my office (at a whopping 27), I encounter a lot of technical questions. I understand 'computer stuff' better than a lot of my older coworkers (many of whom still use Internet Explorer). I'm often...

Flix for Short: Losers - Meta as F*ck

Long-time readers might remember my second-ever post about The Blood Grinder, or the extensive coverage of the Blood Grinder creators' Kickstarter. For you newer readers, take a gander at those links, acquaint yourself and come o...

 
 
 
Cheap Thrills Review photo

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 the roof. Chea...

 
 
Zombeavers! photo

Trailer: Zombeavers

So, here's a thing. Zombeavers is an action-packed horror/comedy in which a group of college kids staying at a riverside cabin are menaced by a swarm of deadly zombie beavers. A weekend of sex and debauchery soon turns gruesome as the bea...

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, heights, and athlet...

Wha...huh? Michael Douglas cast as Ant-Man's Hank Pym

The weeks and weeks of speculation as to which Ant-Man Paul Rudd would be playing have come to an end finally as Marvel revealed today that Michael Douglas has joined Edgar Wright's Ant-Man as Hank Pym, traditionally known as the first...

Paul Blart 2 gets a director, Hell freezes over

The Hollywood Reporter has, well, reported that Andy Fickman, amateur necromancer and director of movies with posters of the cast over a white background, will be directing the unholy Cthulhu-spawn Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. For those who don'...

FlixList: Top 10 Worst Grossing Movies of 2013

Since the dawn of time, there have been winners and there have been losers. There's no question about that. Sometimes, the winners deserve to win, like those damnable Colonial upstarts fighting for their freedom during the Revolutionary War...

Four cool new Captain America: Winter Soldier pictures

March 28th is like, real soon. Hell, 2014 is literally tomorrow. What this means is we have less than (LESS THAN, PEOPLE!) four months until Captain America punches a bunch of dudes faces in. In the mean time, to wet your whistles, Emp...

Trailer: Devil's Due

This trailer came out a while ago, just in time for this year's Halloween movies, but we never got around to posting it. I saw the poster last night and I was like, "Oh yeah! That movie!" Devil's Due is a found-footage movie version o...

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

How did I miss that they'd announced a Locke & Key trilogy? What is quite possibly my favorite self-contained comic series (a scant one issue away from it's conclusion, due out NEXT WEEK), by one of my absolute favorite authors (Jo...

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 central antagoni...

Horrible Bosses 2 plot synopsis is...meh?

I have a real hard time getting excited about a Horrible Bosses sequel. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first one, but did we need a sequel? Did Harold and Kumar need a sequel? Did Taken? No. They were fairly perfect ideas that wo...

SNL's Wes Anderson parody is pure brilliance

The only thing wrong with this brilliant Wes Anderson parody is its lack of Bill Murray. Other than that, it looks exactly like an Anderson film. The music is perfect, the shots are perfect, Edward Norton's Owen Wilson is perfect...ahhhh, ...

About Sean Walshone of us since 5:32 AM on 02.17.2011

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.
