He likes red balls and playing with the perception of time, as well as having a thing for LensFlares. He hates airplanes (both ''Series/{{Lost}}'' and ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' have had more than one airline-related disaster--and the other stuff on the list of credits also have had aviation-related incidents).

* DoingItForTheArt: He is a supporter of keeping film/celluloid cameras in use in Hollywood, alongside Creator/ChristopherNolan and Creator/QuentinTarantino. The three of them, and a few other filmmakers, even formed a coalition to "bail out" Kodak to keep film stock in production.



* ProductionPosse: His films have Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci as writers and Creator/MichaelGiacchino as composer. When he can, he will always try to fit Greg Grunberg or Simon Pegg in either a cameo or supporting role.
* PromotedFanboy:
** ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars]]'' is one of Abrams' favorite films of all time. Now he is directing ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens Episode 7]]''.
** ''Super 8'' was essentially his ode to Steven Spielberg.

* SciFiWritersHave/NoSenseOfDistance: His recent forays into space opera have shown that he has serious issues grasping the scale of interplanetary and interstellar distances. ''Film/StarTrek'' and ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' both contain egregious examples of this trope but ''Star Wars Episode VII: Film/TheForceAwakens'' takes it UpToEleven.
