* AnachronismStew: ''Brick'', ''The Brothers Bloom'', ''Looper'' and ''Knives Out'' all feature this to varying degrees. In the first it's part of the FilmNoir homage. In the second it's to give the film the feel of a timeless tale. In the third it's to establish how impoverished the characters in the future are. In the last it’s because he’s setting an Agatha Christie-style mystery in the present day.

* SubvertedTrope: About ''The Last Jedi'', he admitted himself wanting to subvert the audience's expectations regarding the followup to many things Creator/JJAbrams set up in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', such as Luke being full of HeroicSelfDeprecation and the BrokenPedestal when Rey meets him instead of a more classic OldMaster who's ready to keep the MasterApprenticeChain up. (However, this could be thought of as following through with Abrams's set-up of Luke disappearing to an island in the middle of nowhere.) Then there were the ''massive'' expectations regarding Rey's MysteriousPast... [[spoiler:and it's revealed she's the daughter of nobodies -- or at least that's what [[UnreliableNarrator Kylo Ren]] said.]]
