* ''[[Manga/{{GUNNM}} Alita: Battle Angel]]'', a Creator/JamesCameron's pet project, for which he was given the helm by the man himself, once it turned out that Cameron would be tied by the ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' franchise longer than he'd like.

* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: Rodriguez suffers from this from time to time. After ''ComicBook/SinCity'' came out, he began talking about a pair of sequels filmed back-to-back with new original material written by Frank Miller. After Miller failed to produce (mostly due to his new love of film directing) the sequels hit a major snag and even Mickey Rourke publicly announced he wasn't waiting up. Then, after ''Grindhouse'' was released Rodriguez was not only attached to ''SinCity 2/3'' but a ''Film/{{Machete}}'' feature film (which happened years later) and a remake of ''Film/{{Barbarella}}''. The ''Sin City'' sequel only came out of DevelopmentHell in 2012. Nobody believes any news regarding future Rodriguez projects until the cameras start rolling.
** Just another thing him and his buddy Tarantino [[BirdsOfAFeather share in common.]]



* CopiouslyCreditedCreator: Usually directs, writes, produces, and composes the score of his movies. He also mixes the sound, and has some input in special and visual effects and edits. Occasionally, he also manages to have a CreatorCameo. On Planet Terror he's also (half)jokingly credited as his own chef.
* DoingItForTheArt: Rodriguez left the Director's Guild of America so that FrankMiller could work and be credited as the co-director of ''SinCity.'' It is against the Guilds policy for non-members to be credited as co-directors, and Rodriguez decided to leave rather than compromise his principles.



* [[PlayingAgainstType Directing Against Type]]: When SpyKids first came out, his name on the posters provoked numerous [[DoubleTake DoubleTakes]]. By now, his family-friendly films may represent an alternative type.



* ProductionPosse: There is a set of actors that Rodriguez is using in nearly every film he made. Most prominent examples are Creator/DannyTrejo, Cheech Marin and Creator/TomSavini.



* RealLifeRelative: Creator/DannyTrejo is actually his second cousin. They didn't realize this until ''Desperado'' had already wrapped.



* SoMyKidsCanWatch: Why he directed ''SpyKids'' and all that lot.

* RealMenCook: Many of the DVD releases of his films include "Ten Minute Cooking Schools" in the special features, where he teaches the audience how to prepare some of his favorite meals.
-->''I've got a lot of friends who don't know how to cook, which I could never understand because not knowing how to cook is like not knowing how to [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]].''

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Rodriguez ''hates'' shooting movies on film, and can launch into some pretty epic rants about how expensive and inconvenient it is, especially if you're trying to work on a low budget. Since 2003 all of his movies have been shot and edited digitally.
