ROCKET STAFF QUESTIONNAIRE

EMPLOYEE:  Sean    


1. WHAT ARE A COUPLE OF YOUR FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME?

Annie Hall, Godfather, Once Upon A Time In The West


2. WHAT'S A MOVIE YOU MIGHT CALL A GUILTY PLEASURE?

My classic lame flick I dig would be The Fast And The Furious.

In terms of pleasure and guilt? Thriller with my favorite Swedish actress Christina Lindberg.


3. WHAT'S A MOVIE THAT RENTS A LOT, YOU'RE NOT TOO CRAZY ABOUT?

I hate Boondock Saints. It seems to have a following with the collage crowd who have never seen seen a movie before Fight Club.


3. HOW ABOUT A COUPLE OF RECOMMENDATIONS THAT DON'T RENT MUCH?

I’ve mentioned in the past... Baby It’s You (now on DVD), West Beirut, the PBS doc Eyes On The Prize

Today I would add The Wanders.


4. WHAT MOVIE ARE YOU STILL WAITING TO GET A DVD (REGION 1) RELEASE?

Tougher Then Leather with Run DMC.


5. WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FROM THE TELEVISION SECTION?

The first couple of seasons of Happy Days and All In The Family. Then the usual suspects The Sopranos, The Wire, The Shield. You know what I thought was good was that thing where Lisa Kudrew played a washed up actress. She was great.


6. HOW ABOUT FROM THE MUSIC SECTION?

I liked that Elton John Doc we got recently.


7. HOW ABOUT FROM THE CHILDREN'S SECTION?

I just watched this Peter Pan (2003) with Jason Issacs as Hook and Ludivine Sagnier as Tinker Bell. Loved it.


8. HOW ABOUT FROM THE FREE SECTION?

The gem in there is our copy of the amazing doc LA Plays Itself. Also amazing also is  Sean Sweeney’s Reel


9. OVER ALL WHO MIGHT BE YOUR FAVORITE DIRECTOR OF ALL TIME? WHAT ARE SOME OF HIS/ HER FLICKS YOU DIG?

I wanna say Billy Wilder. But hey, I love a buncha flicks by Sergio Leone and Hawks and Ford and   Robert Aldrich and John Borman and Orson Welles and Spielberg and Scorses and Melville. But the bottom line, A-Number One for me is Alfred Hitchcock. I’ll just toss out one title... Vertigo.


10. WHAT 2008 FLICKS HAVE YOU ENJOYED?

Man On Wire, Wall-E, Ironman, The Dark Knight, The Chicago Ten, Surfwise, Tell No One
