10 Overblown Film Directors Who Need To Learn The Meaning Of Restraint
10. Robert Rodriguez
As is often the case with directors, Robert Rodriguez started off small, making his own short films on a shoestring budget, but once Hollywood sat up and took notice, the "one-man film crew" finally had the money to realise his ideas professionally. Rodriguez's slick style worked to great effect in earlier movies such as Desperado, Spy Kids and Sin City, but his movies have become more and more ridiculous as time has gone by. Planet Terror was admittedly an impressive homage to the exploitation films of the 1970's, but that seems to be all Rodriguez wants to do these days. At the end of the B-Movie Machete, an announcer states that the title character will return again in Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again. So far, only one of these sequels has been made, but come on now. Enough is enough Rodriguez. The joke has got old. Audiences want to see you make good films again Maybe Rodríguez just needs to take a break from the exhaustive list of roles he designates for himself and let someone else be the editor, producer, writer, director of photography, camera operator, composer, production designer, visual effects supervisor or sound editor for a change. Chill out Rodriguez. The film crew is there for a reason.
