Pre digital color films especially in the 60's and 70's to me just had a better atmosphere to them especially if they were set in a eerie environment. 
Perhaps we should use the money to re-create that era's film stock?

Hey, if enthusiasts can bring back Polaroid, nothing involving film's impossible!
They brought back VHS why not.

Drew Bolduc did that for one of his movies.

I don't think anyone's making video tapes or VCRs anymore, but I'm sure there are still new-old-stock tapes someone can use to release a movie on VHS. Probably Betamax too.

Having said that, I think audio tapes are still being produced, so it should be possible to restart video tape production if someone wanted it badly enough. (And had the $$$)

Nyahhhhh..... I think you can still find some at Walmart....
And there's still a market for those doo-dads that transfer your VHS to DVD...

I'd try to bring back double-features & pre-feature shorts.

The couple of local television stations I used to turn to for classic baddies have become rerun channels of the exact same show 24/4, or (ugh) amateur web series!

I think I'd build my own UHF station, with new reruns or we series, with the exception of one or two made locally, just to show that not everything comes from Hollywood......

Maybe add that to my grandiose notion of a retail, manufacturing & production enterprise mentioned earlier......

12 frames per second
By 60 seconds in a minute
By 120 minutes in a movie...

You could make an animated movie wit ~90,000 frames. Usually each character in a shot counts as one drawing. Assuming an average of 3 characters per shot, you'd need ~270,000 drawings to complete the movie. Assuming each drawing takes 10 minutes, it would take ~450 hours to complete the film.

That's  ~11 years for one person, working an average work week. Assuming you'd want to get done in about a year, you'd need 10-20 people.

20 x $50,000 = $1,000,000

So I guess, with a million dollars I could make one cartoon movie. Might be able to get that down some with loops, pans, footage reuse, etc. I'd still probably need twice that budget to market it.

I was going to say a million, but honestly that doesnt get you so far these days. And a billion just sounds cartoonish. So lets just say the genetic bunch o money

As for me Ive noticed fewer and fewer of bad movie directors from the drive thru era are around. However, guys like Dario Argento, Ruggero Deodato, William Grefe, Frank Hennenlotter, etc are still kicking. Id love to set my money ablaze by hiring each to direct a new horror movie then license some of their older work. Put it all together and launch a streaming service. Or if I really want to make sure I throw away all the money Id make it a DVD company so I could put on all the bells and whistles of special features with these releases :)

Not too related, but I figured Id mention it. If I had that hypothetical big bucket o cash Id also hire David Lynch to stand around. Every so often Id rattle off something pretentious he did then follow it up with, Youre such an a***ole. As a condition he wouldnt be able to retort hed just have to sit there and take it. I have a feeling Id be hanging out with David Lynch a lot because I have A LOT of material to work with.

Have you not heard of the Showtime produced "Masters Of Horror" show?  Each episode was directed by:  John Landis, Tikashi Miike, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper, Dario Argento, Stuart Gordon ...to name a few.  Its Amazeballs.  The Miike episode was so horrirfic, Showtime did not air it...but they did release it on the DVd set.

Redo Damnation Alley with elements from the Fallout games.

Not movies, and probably not considered bad by some:

Complete Sapphire and Steel, UFO, the original Battlestar Galactica, Space: 1999, and Doomwatch.

If you do get a s**t ton of $$ to make your fantasy come true, please use the Salton Sea as your location to film everything!

Buy up the rights to old music recordings so I could use them without paying royalties.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
