An analysis of the appeal behind modern movies that attempt to re-create the aesthetics and storytelling elements of grindhouse and b-movies from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. This analysis could explore themes of nostalgia, kitsch, and DIY film-making. Some examples could include "Black Dynamite," Kung Fury," "Italian Spiderman," "Hobo with a Shotgun," and "Planet Terror/Death Proof."

This would not only be a great synthesis of the history of b-movies and how past b-movie themes are being seen in today's movies. I also think that this is a fascinating topic to explore. – FrankWebb4 years ago
I think that a lot of Tarantino's work could actually be considered B-grade yet to the highest of calibre. Whilst his work is very much commercial and critically renowned, his writing, cinematography and overall direction is influenced by past B-grade films and influences many B-grade films to this day (like Kung Fury). – aarondiplacido4 years ago
